PulseAudio is a sound system for POSIX OSes, meaning that it is a proxy
for your sound applications. It allows you to do advanced operations on
your sound data as it passes between your application and your hardware.
Things like transferring the audio to a different machine, changing the
sample format or channel count and mixing several sounds into one are
easily achieved using a sound server.

This release enables some code paths using /dev and /proc which were
#ifdef __linux__ but apply equally to Cygwin, including cleaning up
stale SHM blocks from /dev/shm.
