# PipeWire 0.3.35 (2021-09-09)
This is a bugfix release that is API and ABI compatible
with previous 0.3.x releases.
## Highlights
- S/PDIF passthrough over optical or HDMI is now implemented.
- Some critical fixes to MIDI, draining of streams and various
modules.
- skypeforlinux should work better now after adding it to the
quirks database.
- Bluetooth codecs are now in separate plugins to make it easier
to ship them.
## PipeWire
- Drain was fixed in pw-stream. In some cases it would not clear
the drain state correctly. Fixes the issue where speaker-test would
only play one channel.
- Loopback connections to a driver will now activate the driver. This
fixes an issue where MIDI connections between devices or some
applications (puredata) would not get any MIDI messages. (#1559)
- The audiomixer can now mix more formats. Together with the passthrough
improvements this can be used to avoid conversions to/from the DSP
format in some cases.
- Make sure we idle drivers when removing a node from it in all cases.
JACK clients could keep a driver node busy.
- Add new methods to accumulate object info. The old one was difficult
to use when applications need to accumulate multiple changes.
- A new interface to load modules has been added. Plugins can use this
to ask the host (PipeWire) to load spa plugins.
- Increase param buffer size to handle larger params. Nodes with a large
number of channels would sometimes not have properties. (#1574)
- Concurrent link negotiation that caused some links to not work,
is now avoided. This fixes monitor ports in Ardour6.
- Small tweaks to how the quantum and rate are handled when nodes move
between drivers. Make node.lock-quantum work with node.latency
## PipeWire modules
- The convolver plugin in filter-chain has been optimized some more.
- The echo-cancel stream properties were improved so that it actually
can remember the streams it links to. (#1557)
- module-pulse-tunnel had the buffer attributes wrong and would cause
high latency with older pulseaudio servers. (#1434)
- module-roc had the properties configured wrongly, which would cause
it to not work at all in most cases. (#1538)
- There is now an example of a 7.1 virtual surround sink using the
hesuvi impulse responses.
- The convolver now supports dirac pulses as the IR.
## ALSA
- UCM config is now cached per device, using up less memory. It also
temporarily works around a problem in alsa-lib that is now being
patched and rolled out. Should stop devices from disappearing when
logging out and back in. (#1553)
- Fix the MIDI clock rate matching. It was too sensitive to small
changes and would spiral out of control and break MIDI rather
quickly.
## pipewire-media-session
- The media session can now save and restore IEC958 (S/PDIF) codecs
for the sinks.
- Passthrough of IEC958 (S/PDIF) content is now possible. If the client
and the sink contain a compatible set of codecs, an exclusive
connection can be made between client and sink to pass the encoded
S/PDIF content directly to the device.
- Use new introspection info update methods to suspend nodes in all
cases. Sometimes, nodes would fail to suspend because the state info
was not evaluated.
- The media session can now work in non-DSP mode, which will try to
avoid any audio conversions between client and device when possible.
But, this will also disable compatibility with JACK applications.
## Bluetooth
- Bluetooth codecs are now compiled into sperate plugins which are
dynamically loaded. This makes it possible to change the plugin
implementation or ship plugins separately without having to recompile
the bluetooth module.
## PulseAudio server
- Delay stream create reply until the stream is linked to a sink/source.
- The device-restore extension is now implemented. This makes it possible
to configure the IEC958 (S/PDIF) codecs supported by the sink with
pavucontrol.
- skypeforlinux now uses the same quirks as teams to make the sinks
show up in all cases. This fixes the issue of not being able to hear
the remote end in skypeforlinux.
## JACK
- Improve catia and carla compatibility by caching objects a little longer
after being removed. (#1531)
- JACK ports now notify the negotiated format correctly.
- A potential deadlock was fixed when multiple threads would perform a
call that would require a roundtrip.
- Improve bufsize callback, it should not be called right after doing
activate() but only when the buffersize changes later.
- Add tweak to disable the process lock. Some older apps might not
expect it. (#1576)
## Docs
- man pages are now generated with rst2man.
- DMA-BUF docs were updated.
- Documentation updates.
