The latest versions of jazz++ provide ALSA support by default. If you
have timidity configured as an ALSA server, the only thing you should
need in order to use it from jazz++ would be to select it as the
sequencer output in the jazz++ MIDI config menus.
I also think it would be a nice combination, but I have not tried it;
I have a midi soundcard.

Well, it was me, and I did package it, but I sent an ITP-delay message
some time ago, when a developer from the WxWindows team asked me not
to put into debian the the 1.68E version of the library, which is the
one jazz++ needs.
I spent some days trying to port jazz++ to the newest versions of the
WxWindows library, but I found it to be a really big task. I managed
to compile about half of the jazz++ source files, and I plan to put my
hands on it when I find the time, hopefully soon. If I fail to do the
port, I will probably try to put it into contrib.
Meanwhile, you can use some unofficial packages I made for WxWindows
1.68 and jazz++ ( The binaries where made for woody two months ago
Or apt-get install jazz++ from (sources.list line)
