fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20180710 has been released and is now available for download!

The conversion engine has been updated to allow parallel conversions with different settings, improve automatic ripping usability with multiple drives and allow song playback while a conversion is running.

Additionally, the new release now contains the faster CRC algorithms mentioned in the blog to improve FLAC and Monkey's Audio processing speed, comes with improved configuration dialogs for external codecs and includes a reworked donation dialog with support for additional payment methods.

This release also fixes several bugs and comes with a lot of polishing for the upcoming fre:ac v1.1 beta and should be very close to beta quality already.

Upgrading to the 20180710 release is recommended for users of previous alpha or snapshot releases. All users of the stable release of fre:ac are encouraged to try this alpha instead. Please report issues on the GitHub issue tracker or by email to

The new release is available in the downloads section.
