Release notes

Limitations

The ASIO version is only available for Windows.

Mac OS X audio adapter interface 'CoreAudio' only supports hardware audio formats (in most cases 16bit 44.1/48kHz). For instance lower sample rates like 16kHz are not supported by this interface adapter.

It is planned to set interface 'JavaSound' as default on Mac OS X for the next major version (4.0.x), which does not have this limitation.
