Dear (Ogg) Vorbis fans of HA, I bring you the first third beta release of vorbis-tools 1.3.0. It has quite a few new features and the final version will have even more, so I am sure it is to everyone's benefit that it gets as much tested as possible so we can do a quick release.

Here's the changelog so far:
* Fixed an error in configure.ac; --with-speex/flac work again (#1319)
* Corrected problems in the Visual Studio project files
* Updated po files from the Translation Project
* Added new en_GB.po, eo.po, pl.po, sk.po and vi.po translation files
* Added AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS to configure.ac; no more configure warnings
* Corrected SUBLANG values in intl/localename.c (#1415)
* Modify -v to -V on oggenc and oggdec for consistency (#1112)
* Fix for utf8_decode in Windows; improves behavior in vorbiscomment (#268)
* ogg123: backported fix from libfishsound to patch the Speex decoder (#1347)
* ogg123: fixed CPU issue when outputting to a closed pipe (#1357)
* ogg123: return value to stop decoding after buffer is shut down (#1357)
* ogg123: support for ReplayGain; requires libvorbis 1.2.1 or later (#381)
* ogg123: unset non-blocking mode on stderr
* oggdec: gettextized help text (#1385)
* oggdec: gettextized all strings
* oggdec: call ov_open_callbacks instead of ov_open; it works on Windows now
* oggenc: fixed a core dump while resampling from FLAC (#1316)
* oggenc: fixed a typo in the Skeleton handling routine
* oggenc: fixed remapping channels bug (#1326)
* oggenc: support for WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE headers (#1326)
* oggenc: support for 32 bit Wave files (#1326)
* oggenc: --ignorelength; support for Wave files > 4 GB (#1326)
* oggenc: split help text into manageable chunks to help translators (#1385)
* oggenc: --utf8 command similar to vorbiscomment's --raw (#268)
* oggenc: fixed the encoding of extended characters in Windows (#268)
* oggenc: validate raw UTF-8 sent to oggenc (#268)
* oggenc: include the PID in the RNG seed to get a unique serial (#1432)
* oggenc: lyrics support using .lrc as source; requires libkate (#1403)
* ogginfo: support for information in Kate streams (#1360)
* vcut: 64 bit fixes (#1366)
* vorbiscomment: correct memory allocation (#472)
* vorbiscomment: validate raw UTF-8 sent to vorbiscomment (#268)
* vorbiscomment: fix segfault when using --tag (#1439)

Those numbers at the end (#xxx) are Trac tickets in case you'd like to know more about those issues.

Grab the source code here(). To compile in Windows use Visual Studio or mingw. To compile in Linux, automake will do. If you don't want to try to compile for yourself you'll have to ask someone from the community here to do it for you.

Known bugs so far:
* ogg123 has a status text spamming problem on smaller terminal windows

Features expected to be in the final 1.3.0:
* Support for multi-line comments in vorbiscomment
* vcut rewrite and having it enabled by default

Sure it can and using a quite smaller CPU footprint than the other HD codecs. The only downside to it is that Theora 1.0 requires a somewhat bigger file size than those to keep up on quality, but if you're dealing with HD content disk space is not really a concern. Theora 1.1, codename Thusnelda and a work in progress, will bring compression quality similar to H.264, so the file size of HD content by then will be pretty similar to H.264's.


I just recently figured that out after you had mentioned. I was reading Monty's blog. I guess he was hired by Red Hat to work on Theora in dedicated sort of way to get it up to snuff. I can't wait to see what it will look like when it's finished. It's good to see that it will finally be competetive rather then stuck in the dark ages. I guess we will have to see what happens though. Back on topic.
