Here's a good summary:


By now, Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse are already in, Fedora is still

So yes, it's true, I've asked all the major distributions to switch to
jackd2, so users have the same feature set no matter which distro they

Also note that there's no (easy) way back, we're entirely switching to
jackd2, that is, the user won't have the possibility to select jackd1
