The Debian project ( http://www.debian.org/ ) now provides speex
packages. Users tracking the unstable development distribution
(sid) can now 'apt-get install speex' to fetch and provide the
speexenc and speexdec applications. Hopefully in about 10 days the
speex packages will transition to the testing distribution (sarge). 

This will help Debian developers incorporate speex into packages for
xmms plugins, icecast, openh323 and gnomemeeting as new versions
become available.

While this is good news for Debian users, it also has some things
which should interest speex developers. The speex source code will be
compiled on the 11 architectures supported by Debian (alpha, arm,
hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc). The
compilation logs are available on the web:

If the code gets through all that, then it is likely portable. Things
like endian issues, 32/64 bit processors, and various int/pointer
conventions not accounted for by the programmer tend to show up. As I
write this, speex has been successfully built on 9 architectures :)

Debian also has a bug tracking system (BTS), for speex:

There is also a status page:
(If this does not work yet, try later.)

Note that the Debian Package Tracking System (PTS) also has an email
subscription available from that overview page. Information on the PTS
is at

Happy speex-ing!

Your humble Debian speex package maintainer,
