  • Added .weba (WebM audio) to recognized formats.

Beta 16
  • WASAPI compatibility fixes. Defaults are equivalent to well-behaved beta 13 (event instead of polling). You can override if your device doesn't agree.

Beta 17
  • Refactored exclusive mode overrides in Advanced Preferences.
  • Added a specific workaround for Intel SST Audio, so exclusive mode works without manual tweaks.
  • Prevented foobar2000 from starting up with foo_dsp_std.dll missing, or else normal playback fails. Note that this can only happen as a result of tampering with the installation, as foo_dsp_std.dll is always installed.
