I'd like to announce version 0.6.0 of CELT, a very low delay audio codec for high-quality VoIP. This release includes many quality improvements, including better stereo coupling, better handling of transients, and better handling of highly tonal signals. In addition, packet loss robustness has been improved through the optional use of independent (intra) frames. CELT now supports a larger dynamic range, suitable for encoding 24-bit audio (float version only). There is also a very early VBR implementation. Note that 0.6.0 is not bit-stream compatible with older releases.
So the plan is embedding this into devices?
