I'm planning to release 1.4.3 soon, so if anyone knows of any regressions, please let me know.

Yes, I've come to the conclusion the gain isn't worth the hassle.

hey, I used the flac-retune binary you shared here and without a doubt it's the fastest flac encoder I have ever used, by a wide margin

what exactly is so different between, say, the level 8 mode on your binary vs the standard one?

I'm planning to release 1.4.3 soon, so if anyone knows of any regressions, please let me know.

There have been a lot of general speed-ups. Preset 8 from these binaries (the retune ones)  is pretty much as fast as flac 1.4.3 preset 7.

Anyway, the problem was, while for my inputs the new preset 8 was much faster and compressed better, there where quite a lot of audio files for which it performed worse. So, the general speed-ups stay, but the potentially better settings (on average, for a balanced pool of music) are left out.

Any reason to keep the 1152? After all, block size did make some speed impact for -0/-1.
-r also? At least if 4096-all-the-way is on the table (for the sake of speed), then bump up the -r to keep the partition size close to current partition size?

I don't know if my experience holds up in other scenarios, but from https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,123889.msg1024954.html#msg1024954 , finer partitioning appeared to be more or less "for free" in that build - that's a surprise. And if it is, then -8r7 makes a slight improvement over -8 = -8r6 on more abrasive material.

I've changed my mind, I think the potential gains are too low (and too dependent on source material) to change behaviour that has been around for quite a while.

I did remember wrong, -b4096 was not at all fast - it was the 3000s that would speed up.
I did the test over again with Sunday's build in #93. -0b<BBBB> was not equally sensitive to block size this time. The penalty on 1152 and 4096 (and 4608) was still there, but much smaller.

Didn't test directly against official build, as we know build matters - just lazily took @ktf 's word that there have been speedups  ;)

Multithreading enhancement added yesterday to official git.
I attached a 64bit generic clang 17.0.1 version since i tried the newest package of clang. Still GCC versions are faster here.
