LAME 3.93.1 released

The 3.93.1 release is a maintenance release over 3.93.
This one is mainly fixing some quality problems with the presets.

I would advise anyone using the presets to use this release.

Happy encoding...

LAME 3.93 released

The open source MP3 encoder "LAME" is now available at version 3.93. This is the last release of the stable codebase (except a major bug crept in).

The next release will contain major code changes which are supposed to deliver better quality and increased speed. We will offer a first beta release of the new code base for testing soon.

If you don't want to participate in the development of LAME (by doing listenig tests with the upcomming beta versions), you should grab the actual stable release and be happy with it for a while as it contains some fixes which affect quality, is a little bit faster and should be able to compile out of the box on more systems.... read more
