[ANNOUNCE] Sound theming/naming specs, libcanberra 0.1

Heya!

I promised this a while back, and finally I fulfill my promise: I
now released a first version of 'libcanberra', an API that I suggest as
new event souund infrastructure for free desktops.

Also, Marc-Andre and I updated the sound theming/naming specs, on
which libcanberra is based.

Instead of repeating here what I already wrote on my blog a few
minutes ago, I'd like to ask you to just read all the details directly
there:

http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/sixfold-announcement.html

I'd like to know what the KDE people think about this, and if there's
a chance to get them onto the boat for both the specs and libcanberra
itself. I'lll write them a longer email shortly.

Lennart

Annoying beeps

Hi everyone,

I recently installed a new system and got almost deaf by my laptop's
annoying beep of the pc speaker. There are a lot of ways to disable
it, but shouldn't this get fixed in the right way?

I can't help but image showing a brand new Linux system to a bunch of
people with Compiz, and all these video and audio capabilities,
virtualizing Windows and what not, but hit backspace in the wrong
location and BEEP! Straight to the 80's.

Shouldn't something in GNOME map XBeep or whatever to something more
appropriate?

Best regards.

Again; there are a lot of ways to disable it, but shouldn't this get
fixed in the right way?

 * In Sound Prefereneces -> System Beep -> Disable system beep
 * xset b 0
 * rmmod pcspkr

Of all these, only one is user-friendly, and it doesn't work in my
system. It doesn't surprise me, who would test such a thing?

I would guess 90% of the people disable it, so why is it enabled by
default in the first place?

This mail announces the release of GStreamer 0.10.20 'You Crazy Diamond'.

GStreamer is a streaming media framework that allows the construction of
graphs of elements which operate on media data.

Cool, but what if the system doesn't have PulseAudio?
