nu774's qaac cabinet page (https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/cabinet) has been delivering 404 errors for the last 2 days;  a minimal amount of the original content is still linked here: https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/home .  Anyone know what happened??
Looks like it has moved here: https://github.com/nu774/qaac/releases

Classic Google Sites will no longer be available at the end of this year, and I had no motivation to migrate old pages to new Google Sites.
You can access releases and docs at github.

Thanks nu774.  Your "News" section at the old page was very informative, any plans to keep that linked/updated somewhere?

No, it's not possible.

nu774:

Is the Makeportable2.zip also over at github, or is that hosted elsewhere?

EDIT: It looks as though that is now hosted on GitHub in this project:  https://github.com/nu774/makeportable

:)

You can go here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nu774/makeportable/master/makeportable2.cmd , then in your browser use " File->Save Page As" to save it as the actual cmd file instead of html.  There is no zipped version now.

Found out that iCloud installer still contains AppleApplicationSupport exes.

Heyo. Has there been any updates to the apple components in the last 2-3 years? I've just been using the same files since late 2018, so I'm curious if I should grab any new files from a new itunes?

Yes there have been.  The newest iTunes is version 12.11.3.17 from April 26, 2021, with CoreFoundation.dll version 1.750.443.0.  The latest version is downloadable here and is newer than the one at the support.apple.com site: https://www.apple.com/itunes/download/win64 .

Thanks!
Any notable improvements to the CoreFoundation.dll, has anyone been testing? I think I remember some killer samples that really wrecked it in the past.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought it's CoreAudioToolbox.dll that's handling the audio conversion duties. It hasn't changed for years. Matter of fact, when you convert using QAAC and look at, for example, the encoder used in MP3Tag, it lists CoreAudioToolbox and the version.

Oh good point, I didn't even realize there were two coresomething.dll's.
Looking at them now, looks like the version number is indeed the same but the dll size isn't. I suppose all that means is that their build process has changed a bit rather than any actual changes to the core code.

you can use the --check parameter too

Code: [Select]
C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\encoders>qaac64.exe --check
qaac 2.72, CoreAudioToolbox 7.10.9.0
libsoxconvolver 0.1.0
libsoxr-0.1.3
libFLAC 1.3.3

Even better!

There's a thread around here somewhere, keeping track of the versions and release dates of CoreAudioToolbox. IIRC, the last real update was around 2014. Pretty impressive since Apple AAC still does so well.
