The scenario where I noticed the problem was that I had multiple files in the queue and I was working on a huge file that needed a long time to finish. I wanted to skip it and encode the rest but the program closed entirely. I think any alternate behavior would be better, like spawn new flac.exe process and continue encoding the next file or just remain open with the queue and let user reclick appropriate buttons.

Finally, the first stable. You can download it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/flacfronte...latest/downloadThis stable packs a checked and tested Visual Studio 2012 compile of FLAC 1.3.0. It has been tested on Windows 7 (with .NET 4.5), Windows XP SP3 (with .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.0 client profile) For those who don't want an installer, there is a portable installation as well. https://sourceforge.net/projects/flacfrontend/files/ Both the installer as well as the portable install require .NET 2.0 or higher.For more information, take a look at the new project homepage: http://flacfrontend.sf.net/edit: By the way, any feedback is still appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hello . The new frontend is very bad :
1. It not keep the compression setting (i set to 8 and is coming back at 5 when i restart it) and is not keeping any setting at all
2. The window can't be maximized like the old one

It not keep the compression setting (i set to 8 and is coming back at 5 when i restart it) and is not keeping any setting at allThat is by design, to keep the behavior consistent. If I would make the front-end such that is remembers the settings of the main screen, it should also remember the setting of the advanced screen. I don't think that is not a good idea, because there are a few advanced settings that are not for daily use, like ignoring the chunk length or using a specified cuesheet. Furthermore, I think remembering for example the setting "Delete input files" is not a good idea.So no, I won't introduce this feature because it causes confusion, setting the slider to 8 isn't that hard, right?
Why should you dictate this? [...] Defaulting to your preferred settings makes this front-end useless.
The thing is, if I save settings, I should save either all of them or none of them.
Apparently you take feedback, whether it be constructive or critical, personally and defensive.
If you were open to just saving the level setting I would think that 95% of us would be content.
There are some settings that users will likely always use, like the compression setting, or the amount of padding. I agree that such settings should be remembered.
Another solution would be to implement user-defined "profiles"
I think I found two bugs
I found a bug, sort of. I think it's because of my system.I have the DPI set to 125%, and so the buttons in the Advanced window are cut off.
It's kind of a shame that the old FLACTester.exe was removed from the Windows GUI apps.
Thanks for reporting! I've uploaded a new version to SourceForge that should fix both issues.
Seems to be the most recent thread. The frontend is still bundled with FLAC 1.3.0, I cannot see any reason not to replace flac.exe and metaflac.exe ... ?
