WavPack 3.97 released

WavPack News:

  # 2/18/2003: WavPack 3.97 is available for download and will probably be the last update before the version 4.0 introduction. The only functional  changes are a fix for proper operation with shntool (which now supports WavPack format files) and by using UPX the self-extraction overhead has been reduced to only 26k. In other news, the great new Windows audio player called foobar2000 now natively supports WavPack files.

----------------------------

WavPack 3.97 Features:
  • completely free and open source!
       
  • unique hybrid mode (provides high quality lossy + "correction" file)
       
  • perfect for archiving audio (16, 20, and 24-bit, mono or stereo)
       
  • easily the fastest program of its type, yet gives good compression
       
  • small, efficient executable (no large programs or dlls to install)
       
  • intuitive command line interface (with wildcards and destination directory)
       
  • selectable raw mode for any non-wav files (including CD image files)
       
  • complete piping support for wav and raw audio data
       
  • seekable winamp plugin with ID3v1 support
       
  • fully backward compatible to WavPack 1.0
       
  • create self-extracting archives
       
  • Windows frontend available
       
  • 32-bit error detection

They aren't really comparable. WavPack's lossy mode is much simpler than MPC on encoding algorithms.

But I usually get transparency (for me) at 320kbps.
