This is the first build using the ALSA backend that I posted about previously. The sound playback is much improved over previous Linux builds, and so is the a/v sync - as long as you have a fast enough connection that the download doesn't starve. There is still no initial buffering in this build.
I tweaked the git repository import so that the details for each git commit includes the CVS commit messages for the CVS commits contained within it. That should help track down regressions or problems to their original CVS commit.
