Audiere 1.9.4 released

It's been about two and a half years since the previous release of Audiere, and much has happened in that time. Here are the highlights:

- Replaced mpegsound with a stand-alone version of the MPEG audio decoder from ffmpeg's libavcodec library. The result is an MP3 decoder that is more portable and works with more MP3 files. MP3 files are now seekable as well. (Matt Campbell)

- Added Speex support.... read more

Audiere 1.9.0 Released

Finally, it's here! This is a major release, designed to get the new API tested before 2.0 is released. I would say 1.9.0 should be considered beta, but I feel it is so much better than the last 'stable' release (1.0.4) that there is no reason not to upgrade.

The following is planned for 2.0: 3D spatialization, FLAC support, MP3 support (again, this time using an LGPL library), supported file type enumeration, pitch bending and other DSP effects, AIFF support, and ADPCM compressed WAV support.... read more

Audiere 1.0.4 Released

The Audiere Audio System is a portable audio library which supports playing Ogg Vorbis, WAV, IT, XM, S3M, and MOD files. You can use it from C, C++, Python, Java, and any language that supports XPCOM (JavaScript in Mozilla, for example).

Audiere 1.0.4 is out. This is a relatively minor release, but I highly recommend
that users of 1.0.3 upgrade to this version. One thing to keep in mind is that I
have removed support for MP3 playback. See the FAQ (at
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/\*checkout*/audiere/audiere/doc/faq.txt)
for the rationale behind this decision.... read more
