Dropping MantisBT as the tracking tool. Open issues moved to the Ticket system in the new look sourceforge system. Tickets assigned to the release plan as discussed last week. Tentative dates put on the release plan - mostly based on the good work David has already done.

Dream has permanently moved to subversion

We will leave the CVS repositories on-line so people can get old releases if they really want to but all new development will be in subversion.

The old "unstable" code in subversion has been moved aside and the new dream folder is a direct evolution of the 1.15 release. Look for a proper Qt4 working version on all platform here soon.

Dream 1.0 released

Dream is a software receiver for the brand new DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) system. DRM is a new digital radio standard for the long-, medium- and short wave ranges. DRM transmissions can be decoded with the Dream software by using a modified analog short-wave (MW, LW) front-end and using the sound card as the input and output device. Dream is actually one of the first available DRM receivers.

The main features of Dream are AAC+SBR decoding and multimedia support (slide show application). With version 1.0, all synchonization and estimation algorithms have reached a stable and reliable state.

SBR patches available (BETA)

So far, the Dream DRM receiver was only able to decode the core AAC audio codec. Recently, the audio codec library (FAAD) included SBR support. Unfortunately, a lot of modifications to this code were necessary to make it DRM compliant. A first patch (which is in BETA status) is now available for download on the page http://drm.sf.net in the "News" section (Note: This patch is only for the Windows version!)
