Title: TAK - author burnt out or too busy?
Post by: johnsonlam on 22 February, 2016, 04:11:01 AM
Hi,

Several months ago, I'm asking the same question.
Wish Tom still want to develop TAK, as the compression rate and speed really good.

I'm not aware he has given up development. If he ever does, I would hope he would open the code so the work he has done can be continued and implemented on other platforms.

Must we really open another TAK thread? Or maybe it would be better to remove this topic and refer to already existing one (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,96976.0.html)(hint hint)?

Does it really matter? What's the difference for you? Either way there's no version newer than 2.3.0.

I hope a new version is still on the works.
Probably one of the greatest lossless codecs out there. Too important piece of software to be neglected.

Would very much like a full Unicode support, and 64-Bit support as well. (And it might be good idea to add 32-bit audio compatibility, just because WavPack has one.)

Unlikely.

Theres nothing stopping other people making another codec, this time using ANS instead of Rice coding >_>. Last I seen, the Flake FLAC encoder is pretty easy to follow in terms of code, so understanding a lossless codec's function shouldn't be hard, plus FLAC has extensive docs.
