LXer: This week at LWN: Can you hear me now?

Published at LXer:

The Fedora 11 preview release announcement went out on April 28. Around the world, Fedora users responded by downloading, testing, pondering the ext4 filesystem, and generally feeling a little "jaunty" themselves. One Fedora developer, though, had a moderately strange response which might be a little hard to understand out of its full context:
I'm sorry, I can't hear you. Can you turn it up a bit? What do you mean, it won't go any louder? The _last_ release used to go louder."
Anybody who has been sufficiently distant from the disturbance on the fedora-devel mailing list can be forgiven for wondering what is going on here. In short: changes to the PulseAudio volume control widget shipped in Fedora 11 have made it hard for some users to get sound out of their systems in the manner to which they have become accustomed, and they're not happy about it.
