Release Notes: This version adds serveral new features and enhancements including unsynchronized lyrics display, a LOADLIST control command, and improvements and fixes in libmpg123 stream parsing. One focus is the handling of "dirty" streams that consist of concatenated MPEG files, with Lame/Info tags occuring all over the place. There were also fixes such as more portable assembly and an SGI output module that actually works.
Release Notes: This release fixes a number of little issues, including the Frankenstein (concatenated) stream detection, which triggered all-too-easily on appended metadata.
Release Notes: This is an important release fixing some nasty regressions introduced in the 1.14 series. Among those is indeed a buffer overflow with strange files (although not easily exploitable apart from denial of service since it is decoded audio data that is written). Other changes make the HTTP proxy requests send correct host headers, which matters for some proxy servers.
Release Notes: The auxilliary tool mpg123-id3dump now has a --no-scan switch for some speedup. The -C switch from mpg123 is hidden when not supported to avoid confusion (on Windows). With tinyalsa, a new audio API is supported. The build system has some tweaks, along with fixes for Cygwin.
Release Notes: This version features a performance boost all across the board, with improved Huffman decoding and additional optimization for SSE and AVX. Several outputs have fixes regarding playback of the last bits in buffer. There are LFS fixes, this time for BSD systems with proper 64-bit off_t in 32 bit, providing aliases for builds that insist on having in complicated. Helper programs for dumping ID3 data and stripping anything non-MPEG were added officially.
Release Notes: Writing CDDA data via --cdr works again; it had been broken by attempts to catch failing writes because of a full disk, and the actual failure will properly trigger an early exit now. A bug in mpg123_chomp_string() has been fixed which made empty lines be badly treated (relevant for HTTP). There is now more resync strictness to really catch (all) cases with a changing decoder structure. This fixes possibly fatal behavior in the parser when readahead checking is explicitly disabled (e.g., via mpg123 --no-seekbuffer on http streams). By default, readahead checking is always active.
