Are the additional parameters listed in the wiki deprecated?
If yes, maybe someone should delete them from the wiki?

Look at the box to the right - it says "Stable release: 1.3.0". That should answer your question. The additional parameters were introduced with version 1.2.0 and 1.3.0.

sorry, I missed that. I don't know how I ended up with an old version.

is there any description of the --zero parameter somewhere?

OK, I found out. The wiki page quoted above says (in the box @ top/right):
"Website: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=577042"

which points to the 1.1.0c version.

Thanks for reporting that; I’ve replaced the link to the outdated thread with those for the 1.3.0 ones.

thank you, db1989.
what about the --zero parameter?
It's mentioned in the table here but not in the help/usage.

That should be changed too. --zero has been replaced by --extraportable.

Done! Thanks for spotting those. Would anyone be interested in signing up for the Knowledgebase?  You could PM myself or another known wiki-type if you see anything else that needs changed on any page—but preferably just the relatively drastic stuff, I think, so we’re not deluged with recommendations of minor changes! It would be great for more users—and those with specific knowledge of the topics, as in this case—to register for editing privileges; perhaps the necessity of being validated puts people off, but it really takes almost no time.
