fre:ac snapshot 20120916 Print
Tuesday, 18 September 2012 02:00

fre:ac snapshot 20120916 is now available for download. Along with the usualĀ stability improvements and bug fixes it adds support for large fonts and a codec for the all new Opus audio format.

Other new features in this release are mostly targeted on improving your workflow. They include configuration options to keep processed tracks in the joblist or alternatively add encoded files to the list, an option to automatically select the first CDDB match without showing a selection popup as well as general improvements to title info editing.

While stability has generally improved with this release and specifically the OpenBSD port is running more stable now, there are also some new problems already identified. The Linux version may hang after downloading videos, the Mac OS X package is incompatible with XQuartz and thus does not work on OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.x and the Solaris port crashes upon closing any windows. These issues will be taken care of in the next snapshot.

Please remember that this is still an alpha snapshot and not generally suitable for daily work!

You can get the new snapshot in the downloads section.

 
fre:ac v1.0.20a Print
Monday, 26 March 2012 03:00

fre:ac version 1.0.20a is now available fixing two compatibility issues in yesterday's 1.0.20 release.

The new release fixes an unintended dependency on Intel's svml_disp.dll runtime library as well as bogus error messages when running on AMD processors. The former was introduces through an incautiousness when compiling the updated LAME and Ogg codec libraries. The latter was caused by a known bug in the latest Intel compiler release and had to be worked around explicitly in fre:ac 1.0.20a.

Upgrading to fre:ac v1.0.20a is strongly recommended to users of v1.0.20 and recommended to all users of previous versions. You can get the new release in the downloads section.

 
fre:ac v1.0.20 Print
Sunday, 25 March 2012 03:00

fre:ac version 1.0.20 has been released on 25th March 2012.

This release features updated LAME and Ogg codecs, translation updates and some minor bug fixes.

Upgrading to fre:ac v1.0.20 is recommended to all users of previous versions. You can get it in the downloads section.

Update: Due to a problem with the updated codec libraries, fre:ac v1.0.20 does not work properly on most computers. Please skip it and use 1.0.20a instead.

fre:ac snapshot 20110524 adds support for multiple configurations, i.e. you can define additional configurations sets in the config dialog and switch the active configuration from the main window. That way you can have different configuration sets for archival, mobile listening and other use cases.

Other notable additions include an improved preview in the CDDB match selection dialog, support for Ogg FLAC files and support for the .oga extension on Ogg Vorbis files. A lot of effort has also been put towards improving general user interface handling and stability.

The Mac OX X version is now built as an application package that you can start by click using Finder. The snapshot also adds support for the OpenBSD and NetBSD operating systems; the OpenBSD port is still very unstable though.

The Windows and Linux versions should already be quite stable and usable, so you can use them if you need one of the new features. But please remember that this is still an alpha snapshot and not generally suitable for daily work!

Saturday, 09 April 2011 02:00

A new snapshot of fre:ac is now available for testing.

Snapshot 20110409 adds support for reading and writing MP4 chapters. This enables you to create audio books with chapter marks that will be recognised by your iPod or other portable player. You can also split existing audio books into separate files for each chapter with fre:ac now.

The snapshot also adds support for the FreeBSD, Solaris and Mac OS X operating systems. However, all three ports are still very incomplete at the moment. On the other hand, Linux support has improved a lot since the last snapshot.

You can get the new snapshot in the downloads section. Please use it for testing only, not for daily work!
