Yesterday, the RealNetworks Codec Team released an open source optimized High-Efficiency AAC (aacPlus) decoder to the Helix Community.

QUOTE
The Helix Fixed-point HE-AAC decoder provides an optimized 32-bit fixed-point implementation, which will be dual-licensed under RCSL/RPSL. No extra copyright license is required beyond the standard Helix license terms, although patent licenses are not included and must be acquired from the appropriate AAC licensors.

The Helix AAC decoder is highly optimized for ARM processors and meets or exceeds the performance of other commercial implementations. It also features one of the first widely available fixed-point implementations of SBR.

The following features are currently supported:
MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 low complexity decoding (intensity stereo, MS, TNS, PNS)
spectral band replication (SBR), high-quality mode
mono, stereo, and multichannel modes
ADTS, ADIF, and raw data block decoding
MP4, RM, and other file formats supported via Helix client

Hi Karl! This is really awesome contribution to the open source community. But is the RCSL/RPSL license compatible with GPL? I ask because the it would be really nice to use this code in the iPodLinux project.
EDIT: Nevermind, according to this it is smile.gif.
