Great, however, every time I try to download the Windows version, I get a file with size 0. Has anyone successfully downloaded the 1.2.0 Windows version?
looks like a problem with one of the mirrors, I fixed the download link on download.html

Any chance of the RAW CD TOC support in upcoming revisions?
it's on the TODO, can't assign a chance just yet but it's non-zero! smile.gif

I cannot download from any sourceforge mirror. I am getting a file not found 404 message for the Windows installer.
Can you please fix.

Thanks

I don't know what the problem is with sourceforge, I think they might be checking the referrer now or something, try copy-pasting this link into the address bar, it just worked for me:

if not, download it via the sourceforge file section: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...lease_id=527434

I was able to download via the mirror "superb-east.dl.sourceforge.net ( McLean, Virginia - North America )"

Try that one.

I've given up on posting the links. Just try different mirrors, cancel on the popup and instead right-click on the direct link and choose save link as...

THANKS JOSH!!!

Exactly... why? I assume backwards compatibility should not be a problem at this time at least since the decoder was updated for future possible compression improvements.
a 1.2.0 decoder will be able to decode any 1.2.x streams, so upgrading now means not having to when 1.2.x encoder improvements come out. the FLAC 1.1.x series spanned 4.5 years.

While I do see the point in upgrading the decoders since it will become necessary to do so in the future once the upgrades kick in I assume it will be some time before any improvements will kick in to allow for developers to update their software and hardware manufacturers to update firmwares to support 1.2.0

Hence I mostly meant it as that it doesn't necessarily have to be done right now, since it sounded as if it was necessary for 1.2.0 to be useful, but I do see the point for it eventually.

actually I've been working with hardware people since Jan (because it takes longer for firmware to propagate). at this point it's more the software apps but these are easier to upgrade especially since the API hasn't changed.

Flac 1.2.0 vs 1.1.4 on a Prescott 2.8ghz UNDERCLOCKED to 1.85ghz.
Ratio is related to my so called SetF.
Average improvement: 20/25% in encoding speed, 5/10% in decoding speed.

Oh, that's cool, then I guess we might see more improvement in flac in the near future than I expected. Nice work Josh.

FLAC 1.2.0 is out. There are a few new features and some speedups and fixes, but more importantly, there are some small changes to the decoder to pave the way for possible future compression improvements

YES. Compressed with 1.1.4 and 1.2.0 and result files were identical except version and date string.

No download problems for me. wink.gif

I wonder whether in future there is a chance for source simplifications or a separate minimal UN-FLAC - couldn't find any so far wacko.gif ... and the full source package is not really tiny or simple ...

I don't suppose there's been any communication with Apple to ensure the FLAC support they will (apparently) be shipping with Leopard has the necessary support for this. It'd be a shame for them to ship something that had just become outdated. Particularly as they seem to 'lose focus' on a lot of projects, so any future updates are hardly guaranteed.

I've just added the dlls to the 'Lossless' page at Rarewares. smile.gif

Edit: So they're available for when the API has been sorted in CDex!!

How can you use the new libFLAC.dll with CDex? I use CDex version 1.70b2 unicode version, and with new libFLAC.dll it crashes, just as it did with libFLAC.dll 1.1.4.
Any suggestions?
