    Yes squeezeslave binaries and source are still available. However, in the last 3 months it's only been downloaded 28 times and I've stopped supported it, so I'd consider it obsolete.

    Softsqueeze, the java client, however is a bit more active at 1561 downloads in the last 3 months and I've released one update in the last 11 years.

    Does this even matter for the Balance feature? If the client doesn't report the capability and they are not hardware players, the balance code path shouldn't impact them?

    No, not really - Balance will not appear in the UI and I guess we can keep it like that

    When channels are not balanced then at some point in low volume one channel will not be heard at all. Users will have to accept that or else you'll have a complicated solution.
    ok, so I'll keep the linear solution then

    Yes, but per previous post the balance is a linear ratio between L & R while volume is a log evolution. I'll keep it like that
