Geekport software is not done, but yes, you'll be able to plug a
standard 1/8" IR blaster into the headphone port.

At the moment, we are almost done with basic blasting capability, where

the server sends commands to the Squeezebox2. Pass-through, macros,
triggers and other things are possible down the road.

Blasting support is planned for 6.1 - right now we are only putting in

bug fixes.

Since it appears xAP only runs on windows, is there an equivalent
on linux? I searched around but didn't see anything.

The xapframework apps are windows only. There are lots of cross platform
xAP applications available. Looking on http://www.xapautomation.org or
http://wiki.xapautomation.org should give you an idea of what else is is
out there.

The slimserver connector doesnt have to be on the same machine as
slimserver, it can run on another pc on the same network.
Xapframework might work using Mono, but I don't think anyone has tried yet.
