mpg123 version 0.60
From http://www.mpg123.de/ :

2006-08-29 (UTC) Thomas: Finally the final release - get mpg123 version 0.60!

It is the night of the 29th August 2006 and the time the new stable mpg123 is slipping through my fingers into the net.
For those who didn't follow the development, here's the news:

    * LGPL license
    * compilation via ./configure && make (i.e. GNU autoconf...)
    * many bugfixes
    * more audio outputs, updated Alsa
    * more robust playback
    * MMX and AltiVec optimizations
    * RVA/ReplayGain
    * basic ID3v2
    * improved http and playlist operation
    * ...just see yourself!

This version is the result of merging 0.59r by Michael Hipp and parts of his development tree with the 0.59r-gpl from sourceforge and mpg123-thor (both including patchsets from Debian) as well as continued work on the source of both Nicholas and myself as well as enthusiastic testers who gave us a purpose (thanks for being with us after that long time!).

Long story short: Head over to sourceforge and get it!

Note for old school fellas: This official end user release only works with the new autoconf make system. The MakeLegacy.sh script for using the old-style Makefile needs a src/config.h.legacy file mimicking settings from the autoconf´ed config.h . You can find an example that works on my linux laptop in the svn tree.

I compiled mpg123 on Ubuntu and tested it to see if the gapless playback works with a couple a tracks from The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails, which nearly all the tracks on this album are 100% gapless.

I used the following comandline:

mpg123 --gapless "Nine Inch Nails - 05 - Closer.mp3" "Nine Inch Nails - 06 - Ruiner.mp3"

The gapless playback feature on this decoder works perfectly.

While that's all good and well, gstreamer still doesn't support gapless. So for gnome-audio apps, correct me if i'm wrong, won't get that capability.

Has it been upgraded to use Alsa yet?
