The following people helped with these releases:

We would also like to thank the bug reporters and testers!

To get started:

$ tar xzf icedtea-sound-1.0.1.tar.gz


$ tar x -I xz -f icedtea-sound-1.0.1.tar.xz


$ mkdir its-build
$ cd its-build
$ ../icedtea-sound-1.0.1/configure –prefix=${install_location}
$ make
$ make install

where ${install_location} should be replaced by the prefix where you wish to install IcedTea-Sound (default is /usr/local). Depending on the prefix selected, the 'make install' step may need root privileges.

Full build requirements and instructions are available in the INSTALL file.

Happy hacking!
