Release Notes: This release of libmad uses a new, faster Layer III IMDCT algorithm. New in madplay is Replay Gain support as well as an option to view encoder tag information (written by e.g. LAME).
Release Notes: Three new audio output modules in madplay (cdda, aiff, and esd), new --bit-depth (for selecting the output resolution) and --ignore-crc (for playing streams with bad CRCs) options, support in Win32 builds for keyboard controls, and removal of dependency on Cygwin DLLs.
Release Notes: Renaming the ID3 library to libid3tag (enabling it to be installed), shared libraries use proper libtool versioning instead of release numbering, and fixes for some NetBSD and FreeBSD audio compatibility issues.
Release Notes: A new ID3 tag manipulation library has been implemented, with support for ID3v1, ID3v1.1, ID3v2.2, ID3v2.3, and ID3v2.4. Portability of the code has been improved, and MSVC++ project files are now included. A new dithering algorithm has been implemented, which may produce better audio quality. Keyboard controls are now supported in madplay. Other fixes include a possible segfault in madplay.
Release Notes: A fix for a problem decoding MPEG-2 Layer III intensity stereo, support for Layer III ancillary data extraction, an enhanced API, improved portability, and other bugfixes in libmad. The plugin for Winamp has Xing VBR header support, full file decode, and an improved 24- and 32-bit output visuals display.
Release Notes: A new Winamp plugin, MPEG 2.5 support, clipping detection and attenuation support, numerous significant performance improvements, localization for Croatian, Norwegian, and Spanish, and bugfixes.
Release Notes: Modifications to use automake and libtool, modularization of filter processing, new fade-in filter, support for arbitrary start/stop times, integration of GNU getopt, new options for shuffle and repeat, internationalization of front-end messages, and localization support for French.
Release Notes: Incorporation of several ARM CPU optimizations, improved output accuracy, and several audio playing enhancements including automatic bit-depth selection, automatic resampling, and new PCM dithering for high-quality audio, among other features.
Release Notes: Support for the MPEG 2 extension to Lower Sampling Frequencies, new high- and low-level APIs, ID3v2 support, Win32 (via Cygwin) support, miscellaneous bug fixes, and many significant performance optimizations.
