so, I have a few questions about LAME 4.

1. Who's developing it? LAME devs? Or wasn't some Japanese guy doing it?

2. If it's the future, why are other LAME versions being released?

3. what sort of quality will it be? from what I've seen, it's supposed to be really fast... which is nice, but that wouldn't matter if it's quality were not as good as 3.90.3

4. when will it come out?

Mostly Takehiro Tominaga, which happens to be a japanese guy and a LAME dev.

It's a big rewrite of several parts of Lame, so, while it is being written, old small bugs are being addressed in the old codebase. I don't think heavy tuning is going on at the 3.x code, though.

From what I heard, the first versions aren't going to output very high quality, but they are going to be blazing fast and, better of all, the code will be clean, which will hopefully make tuning much easier than playing with the horribly messy code of current Lame.
