fre:ac development status update 12/2013 Print

After the 20131217 snapshot release I started making plans for the next snapshot, so here's what's planned for the next one.

The main new feature will be support for the Core Audio AAC and ALAC encoders on Windows and OS X. This will provide much higher quality AAC encoding compared to the currently used FAAC encoder. On Windows, however, you will need to have iTunes or QuickTime installed to enable Core Audio support in fre:ac. On OS X, Core Audio is part of the operating system, so the new encoders will always be available in fre:ac.

Some minor improvements on my list are support for ID3v2 chapters, drag & drop support on Linux and OS X and some more things that I will talk about later. All of these are optional for the next snapshot though, so I'm not sure if they will be implemented there or in a later one. I'll give you a status update on these in the next blog entry.
