Zita-njbridge-0.1.0 is now available.

Zita-j2n and zita-n2j are command line Jack clients to
transmit full quality multichannel audio over a local IP
network, with adaptive resampling by the receiver(s).

Main features:

* One-to-one (UDP) or one-to-many (multicast).
* Sender and receiver(s) can each have their own
  sample rate and period size. No word clock sync
  is assumed.
* Up to 64 channels, 16 or 24 bit or float samples.
* Receiver(s) can select any combination of channels.
* Low latency, optional additional buffering.
* High quality jitter-free resampling.
* Graceful handling of xruns, skipped cycles, lost
  packets and freewheeling.
* IP6 fully supported.
* Requires zita-resampler, no other non-standard 

Note that zita-njbridge is meant for use on a *local*
network providing more or less reliable delivery with
low to moderate delay. It may work or not on the wider
internet if receiver(s) are configured for additional
buffering, and if you are lucky. Performance on wire-
less networks is just a matter of chance.

You will need a fairly recent Jack version, as the
code uses jack_get_cycle_times() and no fallback for
that is provided.
