Dunno if Arachne supports https, so I better paste it ;-)

The post mentions that Emu10k SB PCI / SB Live 24 Audio LS
support got added, other cards from that family planned,
but there is a "by the way" about the future of DOS MPXPLAY:

My personal opinion here is that MPXPLAY is very nice for DOS
users because it supports many soundcards :-). The ability to
use network and video would not be a main issue for me. Maybe
Attila can continue updating the sound drivers for DOS while
focusing on Windows for the video support?
