Release Notes: This release has a Speex audio decoder, DLS instrument support in the MIDI decoder, Visual C 6.0 project files, and several important bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release fixes memory leaks and other bugs, can decode MP3 files without any external libraries, and contains experimental support for Apple's Quicktime API. Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Windows CE are now supported, and a "playsound" application was included, which can play audio from stdin or from inside zip files. Also included are an audio seeking API, an alternate audio converter, man pages, API references, and other cleanups and fixes.
Release Notes: Internal support for MIDI and .AU files, optional use of the ModPlug library to decode several file formats, thread-safety, a new sound rewinding API, ability for the included playsound application to loop playback with a commandline option, support for BeOS, CodeWarrior on MacOS 9, and PowerBuilder on MacOS X, updated support for Visual C on Win32, and other fixes and enhancements.
Release Notes: This release can handle FLAC-encoded files and MS-ADPCM encoded WAV files. Sound format conversion is handled internally, and no longer relies on SDL's facilities. The decoder modules can now list more than one supported file extension. The included test program now lets the user specify a number of useful command line arguments, has a much improved sound playback algorithm, and can skip files with CTRL-C like plaympeg/mpg123. There have been many bugfixes and cleanups overall.
Release Notes: This release uses autoconf for a build system. The library is now portable to Win32 and MacOS X in addition to more traditional Unix systems. MP3 decoding is no longer broken. Support has been added for Shorten (.shn) sound files and experimental MIDI decoding. There are other bugfixes and enhancements.
Release Notes: PowerPC Linux support (and presuambly other big-endian processors), optional Ogg Vorbis support through libvorbis and libvorbisfile, optional MikMod support (adding several new audio file formats), and other tweaks, fixes, and enhancements.
