LAME (LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder) is a research project for learning about and improving MP3 encoding technology. LAME includes an MP3 encoding library, a simple frontend application, and other tools for sound analysis, as well as convenience tools. Please note that any commercial use (including distributing the LAME encoding engine in a free encoder) may require a patent license from Thomson Multimedia.

Release Notes: Compilation problems for alpha and for Cygwin/mingw-w64 were fixed. An issue with fast floating point math was resolved. A bug causing artifacts at the beginning of decoded files was fixed.
Release Notes: A crash related to .w64 input files was fixed. Frames support was enhanced with support for WFED, PCST, and USER frames, and support for COMM frames with descriptions. Two frame-related crashes were fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with genre numbers when adding Unicode ID3 tags.
Release Notes: LAME can now replace common suffixes when no output filename is given. Support for WAVE format IEEE float input files was added. New options to swap channels and to select single stereo channels for mono encoding were added. Many minor bugs were fixed. Debian packaging was improved.
Release Notes: A very important interaction with the FhG decoder was fixed. The hip audio decoding library is used to perform a better job when reencoding MP3 files to MP3 files. Bugs were worked around to improve compatibility with ffmpeg. Many fixes were made regarding ID3 tags, including correct specification of the length of the tracks. Improved fixes were made for building lame under many environments (including native Windows and Cygwin). The Debian packaging was updated to work well with current Debian and Ubuntu distributions.
