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.

fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20180306 has been released and is now available for download!

In addition, and besides numerous minor improvements, the new version includes the latest codec versions and fixes several minor issues.

Upgrading to the 20180306 release is recommended for users of previous alpha or snapshot releases. Please be aware, however, that this is a preview release and not meant for daily work. Please report issues on the SourceForge bug tracker or by email to support@freac.org.
