The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.

Release Notes: The Winamp and CoolEdit/Adobe Audition output plugins now support ID3 and MP4 tag importing from input files, so they won't get lost during batch encoding to AAC/MP4. Their code was cleaned up, and common files are now located in the Cfaac subdirectory of the CVS repository.
Release Notes: The new branch for the AAC decoder FAAD2 was added to the FAAC project in order to document its future releases independently from the encoder FAAC.
Release Notes: This version includes updates of all text files in the main FAAC CVS folder: ChangeLog, News, Install, Readme, Authors, and ToDo.
