Subject: [gentoo-dev] News item: media-sound/pulseffects "renaming"
Date: Tue, 13 Jul 2021 00:02:12
1 Officially the new name has only been in effect since version 6.0.0 but
2 having discussed this with prometheanfire on IRC, it makes sense to
3 extend the new name to >=5.0.0 - that way people not interested in
4 switching from plain PulseAudio to PipeWire can continue to use v4
5 (which according to upstream is now in maintenance mode, i.e. hasn't
6 been EOLed yet) without having to mask v5 ebuilds.
8 It 7 days feels like a reasonable time to wait before dropping
9 media-sound/pulseeffects-5.0.4 from the tree because this news item will
10 continue to display for affected users even after the ebuild is gone,
11 won't it.

17 Title: PipeWire versions of PulseEffects are now media-sound/easyeffects

21 News-Item-Format: 2.0
22 Display-If-Installed: >=media-sound/pulseeffects-5.0.0
24 In response to the upstream decision to rename PulseEffects to
25 EasyEffects we have decided to adopt the new name for versions only
26 supporting media-video/pipewire while retaining the old one for versions
27 allowing the use of media-sound/pulseaudio.
29 media-sound/easyeffects is already available in the tree, and all the
30 PipeWire-dependent ebuilds of media-sound/pulseeffects will be removed
31 in 7 days. Therefore, users of >=media-sound/pulseeffects-5.0.0 are
32 asked to emerge media-sound/easyeffects instead.
