That's probably why they updated iTunes, same CoreAudioToolbox 7.9.8.5 on QuickTime 7.75.80.95.

Do you have a link Apple saying that? I don't mind reporting new versions and just want to know if Apple said anything officially (because they never do?)

Woo..not so fast, I still think AAC is the best lossy codec.

The good news is that iTunes 11.3 brings new CoreAudioToolbox 7.9.8.6. The bad news is that I don't know if AAC converter was updated. Will post later my findings...cheers

Edit: AAC converter was not updated ;(
at least not at mainstream profile

Thanks Anakunda and yes, the CoreAudioToolbox 7.9.8.6 from iTunes 11.3.0.54 gives bit-bit identical files from the 7.9.8.5.

Does anybody even know why Apple keeps releasing new versions when nothing is actually new about them? Maybe the version number for CoreAudioToolbox is set to automatically increment when other components get updated, or something.

Apple keeps updating iTunes, I only report changes in that DLL, there are many things iTunes does and always needs to be updated.

You can check VideoHelp.com, as they post changelog.
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/iTunes

I don't actually ever use iTunes nor have the need to visit their site.
I'm sure their website must have a changelog somewhere.

But VideoHelp lists this short changelog for the most recent update to iTunes:

11.3.1
Addresses a problem where subscribed podcasts may stop updating with new  episodes and resolves an issue where Itunes may become unresponsive  while browsing your podcasts in a list.


Although not relevant to our needs for QAAC, iTunes isn't built solely for our needs for QAAC.
I like to use "HD audio" in PaulStretch. "HD audio", lol.

That's my point. Apple keeps assigning that DLL a new version number, even though nothing ever changes, hence my speculation that it's an automated side effect of Apple's updates to other iTunes components.

My guess is it's set to auto-update, but the only thing that changes is comments or nits which don't effect the output of the compile.

New iTunes 12.0.1.26, CoreAudioToolbox.dll 7.9.9.3.

Didn't test it yet.

The resulting files (-c, -v and -V) are bit identical, nothing changed.

CoreAudioToolbox.dll 7.9.9.3., no difference on output

Just to clarify for myself, is it correct that the AAC encoder hasn't changed since CoreAudioToolbox.dll 7.9.8.1?

That sounds about right. I started using qaac at CAT 7.9.8.3 and have been following this thread since then, and Apple hasn't made any known improvements in the interim, and most "new" versions produce bit-perfect matches to the older ones. It seems Apple increments the CAT version number arbitrarily when other parts of QuickTime/iTunes change, but they've stopped developing their AAC encoding engine.
