Hi all,

It is with regret that I have to inform you that I will not longer be 
maintaining Vsound.

    Although I have maintained vsound for nearly three years, I can no 
    longer do so, nor can I continue to make it available from this web 
    I live in Australia which has a law (Digital Agenda Bill 2000) which 
    is similar to the DCMA in the US in that it makes the distribution 
    of a devices for circumventing copyright protection illegal. I have 
    neither the time, money or inclination to make myself a possible 
    target for such legal action by companies with endless legal and 
    financial resources.
    However, vsound is probaly available from other web sites. If you 
    want a copy, you should search the web. Do not email me as I cannot 
    and will not provide you with a copy. 

I will however continue working on other Linux audio software such as 
libsndfile and Secret Rabbit Code.
