al was shipped. It includes several improvements, among them:

The stdcall flag might be a great ally for people compiling on a 32-bit Windows. For people on 64-bit Windows, the default is sufficient – and for UNIX systems, you don’t have anything special to do.

I’m also looking for hackers to test the library on the most OS as possible. I have issues with it (see this) and I’d like to hear from people. Even though I have that issue, al compiles well and runs great in ghci, which is weird regarding the fact running an application compiled with al silently crashes at startup.

About paths…

That’s a nasty issue I don’t really know how to correctly fix. Up to now, default OpenAL 1.1 SDK installation are detected for Windows. For people with custom installation and other systems, you have to pass the path of the SDK by hand. I know, it’s a pain in the ass, but I don’t want to depend on tools like pkg-config as that tool is not available everywhere – getting it on Windows is not that simple.
