JOAL is now available for Windows, Linux and OS X!
Nightly builds are available for each of these platforms at https://games-binaries.dev.java.net/
In addition, the source code build.xml file has been updated to include default OpenAL location information for each of the supported platforms. If you've installed OpenAL in the default location on your machine, you should be able to simply call "ant" from the command line to build the project. The build will automatically detect if OpenAL is not installed in the default location and provide instructions on how to adjust the build file for your configuration.
If you have any issues with the nightly builds or building JOAL from CVS, please report them to:https://joal.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectIssues
