The trident cleanup patch is up. After I got it to compile, there was a nasty buglet were I reworked the error path cleanup in trident_probe(), and ended up doing the cleanup even if the function was successful. Oops. Then, once I got that fixed, playing my test mp3, Abba’s Gimme Gimme, started stuttering. Since I couldn’t figure out why it was happening by just looking at the code, I started unrolling changes, and playing the song again after each change. I must’ve listened to it 50 times by the time I found out the culprit… Abba – it’s not just a band, it’s an occupational hazard of sound drivers developers!

    • cool, thanks for the tip. That Abba track is a good test track because of its quiet start, that made the stuttering noticable. Also, it has sentimental value 😉
