Bug Description

Binary package hint: libportaudio2

The portaudio version shipped with ubuntu is a very old version (2007). This is the only version since then that was marked "stable" by the portaudio team. However, current snapshots are far more stable in practice which is why they are also the recommended version to use - again by the portaudio team.

I am myself currently developing an application ( that uses portaudio and our users are experiencing a lot of problems with the sound. However, once they update to a current version of portaudio the system is much more stable and reliable.

So I propose to update the version in universe to a current snapshot.
