Take the two LAME versions: 3.90.3 and 3.96.1

Now I'm not going to ask which has been more tested -- the answer is simple. However, I would like to know why you personally choose 3.90.3 or 3.96.1

To me, it makes no difference but I grabbed 3.96.1, I'm too lazy to switch back, no problems here, I'm not too paranoid, and newer just sounds cooler (not to say its better).

Others? I know this thread sounds rather peculiar laugh.gif

wow! im suprised. ive been using 3.90.3, and probably still will, cause encoding speed isn't a factor to me, but i am going to at least reevaluate and take a second look at 3.96.1 (or 3.96b2) and see if i have been making the wrong decision... by the way, whats the difference between 3.96.1 and 3.96b2? of the two, which is generally *prefered*?

3.96b2 is geek speek for version 3.96 beta 2 (second beta release). This should be close to 3.96.1 but I have not checked the change logs at sourceforge for the details.

3.96.1 is the latest official developer release (after the beta tests were considered completed). This version has been stable since July 2004. 3.96.1 is the current recommended stable version according to the folks who work on the program (see LAME at sourceforge).

There is also a 3.97alpha7 version in the works that should come out as 3.97 this year. Alpha versions are even more unstable than beta version and will cause your computer to explode and burn down your neighborhood (just kidding).
