This bug is about adding sound redirection support to the OSX client. That means porting PulseAudio to OSX.
PulseAudio seems to have support for coreaudio/OS X now. http://cgit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/tree/src/modules/macosx http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/BuildingOnMacOSX
OS X 10.5 is needed though, so we have to upgrade our current requirements and build system.
As this bug has been open for quite a while now (2006) and not been addressed yet (ThinLinc 4.1.1), we as a ThinLinc customer would like to explicitly express our wish to see full sound support/redirection in an upcoming OSX client version of ThinLinc since we are running ThinLinc Clients for a bunch of OSX machines here.
Requested on the mailing list: http://lists.cendio.se/pipermail/thinlinc-technical/2014-October/000643.html
We also would highly appreciate that Mac OS X is fully supported by the thinlinc client. This means that audio should works like under Linux and Windows. Our users use skype as well as video editing software - for both audio is a mandatory feature (play and record).

I just tested the latest nightly build (4.3.0post build 4680) on OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 as well and can report that sound works as expected now with a ThinLinc Server version 4.3.0. Thanks for implementing pulseuadio support in the OS X clients of ThinLinc. This really improves user experience.
Tested using client build 4696 on both 10.6 and 10.10. Playback/recording and reconnecting to a session with sound works as expected.
Needs to be retested after gcc fix.
