LASH is considered obsolete. LADI is under active
development and has seen limited adoption. There are
current talks of adding a session management infrastructure
to the JACK API. This is currently in the "heated

Currently, for guys that need to get work done, the major
1. custom-written bash scripts for your setup.

handles most of my needs. You set up some
basic connections/rules, and whenever some
ports appear that match your rules it

LASH is dead. Other than that, it still remains to be seen.
LADI is popular with quite a few devs, but because it uses
DBUS for IPC it has met with a lot of criticism from other
devs. At the moment, it looks favorable that JACK will
provide some basic infrastructure... but that's still
pending. There are also some other independent efforts here
and there. :-)
Hope this helps!
