Sndio is a small, simple audio and MIDI framework, developed by the OpenBSD
project. It provides a lightweight audio and MIDI server and a well-documented
userspace API to access the server or audio hardware in a uniform way. Sndio is
designed to work well for both desktop and professional music applications, and
supports features found in more complex sound systems such as per-application
volume control, software mixing, and network transparency.
This package contains the sndiod sound server.

2016-03-03 - Peter Piwowarski <>
sndio (1.1.0-1) experimental; urgency=medium

* libsndio6.1 no longer self-conflicts as the potential for file clashes from
roaraudio is gone (Closes: #816015)
* Standards-Version updated to 3.9.7

sndio (1.0.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

2015-09-08 - Peter Piwowarski <>
sndio (1.0.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release, removing an experimental API never used outside the
sndio tree, and demo tools for it (specifically, sndioctl in the sndiod
package and the sndio-xtools package have gone).
* Minor dependency tweaks (sndiod properly recommends sndio-tools, libsndio6.0
self-conflicts, libsndio-dev breaks/replaces old libroar-dev)
(Closes: #798353)
* Fix the build on !linux, though they still don't have local audio I/O
* fix debian/copyright format to be fully DEP5-compliant (no licensing change)
