After the Beta 4 release Print

It's been a while since my last update here. In the meantime BonkEnc v1.0 Beta 4 has been released and it has been a great success! The software has been downloaded about 30,000 times since it was released one month ago. Even better, unlike previous releases, Beta 4 seems to contain only very few bugs. This should give me more time to concentrate on finishing the final v1.0.

Bugs that have been reported so far:

  • failure to read HE-AAC files correctly

this was related to how BonkEnc calculated MP4 track duration and is already fixed in CVS

  • crash when encoding from FLAC to AAC

this only occurred with this decoder/encoder combination; it's also fixed in CVS

  • some new freedb problems that didn't occur in previous releases

the rewrite of the freedb component introduced some new bugs, but they are not critical and should be easy to fix

Before v1.0 will be released there will be another snapshot probably in August or September.

Sorry to the developers that I didn't finish the Bonk library yet. In fact I just made an implementation good enough for use in BonkEnc, but didn't implement features like seeking or multichannel support yet. These will follow soon and the library will be released then.

I will have some free days now before the next semester starts at university. I will try to dedicate some time to the development of BonkEnc.
