i strongly believe that there is absolutely no point in "phasing out"
jacktrip code isn't black magic: it's standard C++/Qt.
i wouldn't expect any issues on the level of "CPU-architectures".
much more important topics are CPU clocking, network speed, avilable
RAM, number of CPU cores and the like.
binaries for jacktrip-1.5.1 are available in Debian(sid) for 19
different architectures[*], including a heavy mixture of 32bit and 64bit
CPUs as well as LittleEndian and BigEndian systems.
(for Debian/stable the situation is similar; but Debian10 comes with
now of course many of these CPUs are rather exotic and you probably
don't want (or won't be able) to *run* jacktrip on them, either because
they are laughably underpowered vintage architectures (Motorola
68000,...) or because they are prohibitively expensive datacenter
however, i'm sure i will forward any problems any of my users encounters
on somesuch architecture to the jacktrip developers (hopefully with a
i understand that this is not exactly what you were asking for, but i
think your question was a bit too generic :-)
