I don't know if there's development I don't know about. I suspect that a
lot of the development was with the goal of realtime transaction
oriented applications, not audio... we got our wishes as a side
effect :-) If that is so (and I may be completely wrong) we may get our
wishes again when the companies marketing these products have to upgrade
their kernels (it is a slower cycle)...
