Yes, you need to build jack2 that is still under development, from git:

  $ git clone https://github.com/jackaudio/jack2

Once you cloned the git, you can update by running

  $ cd jack2/
  $ git pull --all

to get the latest commit, then build it and install it or build a
package and install the package.

Some distros provide to build packages from git, e.g. Arch Linux,


while even this rolling release, for good reasons provide the official
release from upstream by the official repositories,



even the testing repositories provide this release:


Neither jack2 version counting is odd, nor the packages provided by
Arch Linux are between 1.9.9 and 1.9.10. They are the official release
from upstream 1.9.10 and not some dirty version from git.

If you're using a release model distro, the release of JACK2 could be
older, but than again, those releases have good reasons to do it that
way. Maintainers do their best to provide a stable release that works
with all apps, they can not focus on just a single app.

If you use JACK2 from git, you can't expect support by your
distro/distro's community anymore.
