awesome. I submitted an updated port for FreeBSD.

However, it seems the only change, in the BSD version at least, is the oss_envy24ht group was moved down below oss_envy24 in the devlists/Linux list. I just did a diff -ruN oss42-build2007/ oss42-build2008/ so maybe I am missing something?

Anyhow, keep up the great work. I just signed up for a 'registered' copy. I don't believe I yet have any hardware that needs the proprietary drivers - but maybe down the road, and I may have a few questions.

Thanks,

Is there a third place for where development takes place? Checked both git and mercurial but i can't see the mentioned commits.

Sadly the last commit on git seems to have been left out of this release

Please address all GIT related messages to Hannu Savolainen (hannu@opensound.com) as he maintains the OSS GIT repo.

Thank you very much for the new release.

Perhaps, it might be possible to do something about "spam" and "security".

Since 99.99% of new messages posted by new users are spam, there might be a simple solution.
For example:
1. Close registration of new users.
2. Create a special forum for novices.
3. Allow registration only on this forum for novices.

This simple solution may solve several problems:
1. It may prevent pollution of the Linux forum.
2. It may facilitate detection and removal of spam.

I'd simply advocate for a better captcha. Another option would be, that the first post by a new user needs to be accepted/reviewed by a mod. This however would require more active mods I guess.
Check out my effort on revamping the opensound website => github.com/Nuc1eoN/4Front-Tech-Website
Any feedback greatly appreciated =)

I have given you mod privileges - thanks for helping. I have no idea where these stilhaus kitchen guys are coming from.
