Yes and no. The emulation mentioned in the announcement is a library
(libsalsa) that emulates a subset of ALSA-lib.
The Cuckoo project announced on the above link is kernel based and not
emulation. It makes the low level drivers of OSS to look like native
ALSA drivers to the snd/snd-pcm modules (probably the same could be made
in the opposite direction too). Cuckoo (sources) is shipped with OSS v4
but it doesn't get loaded by default.
We are actually looking for volunteer maintainers both for libsalsa and
Cuckoo (emulating ALSA is not our key business and our resources are
limited). If you are interested then please contact me.
Btw, there is some info available for developers that was not mentioned
in the original announcement:
o http://developer.opensound.com/oss4white.pdf is a white paper about
changes in OSS v4 for application programmers.
o http://manuals.opensound.com/developer/ contains the OSS v4
o There is a new oss-devel mailing list for OSS developers. See
http://mailman.opensound.com/mailman/listinfo/oss-devel for more info.
