Description: Sorry for the vague summary, no idea what's really happening. Sound wasn't playing from Firefox and Telegram, probably every other application. Downgrading to 0.3.13-2 fixed it.

For me the work-around was uninstalling pipewire-pulse and pipewire-jack packages. Before that pulseaudio was starting but wasn't functional.
I still have a problem with Cheese when pipewire is enabled, but that was also before this upgrade and isn't something new.

Another small update: the issue is only present on one laptop, namely ACER Nitro 5 (AN515-42-R4QR), AMD based.
I tested on two others which are Intel - this issue doesn't occur there.
Another difference: on the Acer laptop my account belongs to these groups: network realtime users video storage lp input audio wheel.
I'm also not sure what is causing this problem.

Probably fixed by cherry-picking 6962c27af98c31374e8b349b8962b3b8a2b66be8

This is still valid, workaround is to change the last line of /etc/pipewire/pipewire.conf to `exec /usr/bin/pipewire-media-session -d alsa-acp,alsa-seq`
