Bad news. Now because of this licensing fiasco, we're seeing several FAAD2 forks surfacing

Or good news that FAAD2 will get improved.

A centralized improvement effort would have been much better than each fork reimplementing the same improvements over and over.

We have seen a similar "forking gone horribly wrong" fiasco with eMule.

Might happen or not. For example X.org fork is pretty much of a success. We shall wait and see

Hmm, is this the same rjamorim that was advocating forks just a while ago? 

But back on topic: Hip hip hooray for forks!

That was sarcasm, for those that didn't get it...

Where did you see me advocating forks?

I have always been an outspoken critic of forks, ever since the eMule fiasco started!

Forking FAAD2 is absolutely terrible, but what options do the software developers have? FAAD1?

Has there been any change to this situation?  Are Nero actually aware that GPL projects using libfaad2 have frozen with the pre-license change version?

Well, FAAD2 development seems dead. Bad for us and free AAC decoding...

It is one reason for which I can't use Parametric Stereo.
Namely - no one would be able to decode it.

Maybe somebody has a truly GPLv2 FAAD2 with PS?
I mean source code.
