FLAC 1.4.0 has been released.
This release fixes a lot of bugs found by fuzzing, and fuzzing coverage has improved much. Also, compression should be better but a little slower. Speedups for 64-bit ARM have been implemented. Encoding and decoding 32 bps PCM is now possible.
See github for details and more changes.

Mp3tag 3.17 (Stable)
I've released a 64-bit version of Mp3tag a few days ago and received a few questions about differences between the 32-bit version and the 64-bit version.
To make it short, there should not be any noticeable differences except for two things:
The 64-bit version uses 64-bits to address memory and is no longer limited to 2 GB per application. While the Library 13 feature of Mp3tag is already a very viable solution for large libraries, loosening the memory restriction is one of the key benefits of 64-bit.
Installation and Update from 32-bit to 64-bit
Mp3tag 64-bit can only be installed on 64-bit versions of Windows. The recommended path is to uninstall the 32-bit version before upgrading — the uninstaller has an option to keep your configuration settings. If you install without prior uninstall, no harm is done, and the 32-bit version is kept as a leftover on your system. You can remove it manually then.
The standard installation folder of the 64-bit version is at
which differs from the standard installation folder of the 32-bit version at
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mp3tag
You can keep all your configuration settings and can use them also with the 64-bit version of Mp3tag. It's very recommended to backup your configuration settings before installing any software that is in Beta status. From Download and Installation.
WavPack 5.5.0 Released
2022-07-23 23:17:02 by bryant | Views: 6965 | Comments: 19
WavPack 5.5.0 contains a fix for CVE-2021-44269 wherein encoding a specially crafted DSD file causes an out-of-bounds read exception.
The other major change was the addition of the --drop option and the ability to add brace-delimited default option parameters to the executable filename (thanks to @Porcus for the inspiration). On Windows, these improvements make using the WavPack executable icons as "drag and drop" targets much easier and more flexible. For details on using this feature see the user manual.
For the remaining minor fixes and improvements, see the official NEWS file.
Binaries and source can be found on the GitHub release page or the WavPack downloads page.
Note that I am no longer able to generate binaries for macOS. These should probably be obtained from HomeBrew anyway, which has been updated to 5.5.0.
Thanks HA for over 20 years of WavPack support!
