FLAC 1.3.1 has been released

Reply #100
Thanks, Case. Is there any downside at all to upgrading? Is there a possibility that files encoded with the new version can't be read by certain players?

Since the file specification hasn't changed, all files produced by the new encoder will work the same as ones from the previous version.  So there really isn't any downside.

Hopefully this remains to be true: http://lists.xiph.org/pipermail/flac-dev/2...ber/005370.html

Aaand fixed! A patch to fix this has been merged in git

I would expect so, but it's hard to tell. There was one particular security fix which I think warrants a new release: http://sourceforge.net/p/flac/bugs/425/

But then again, I've been surprised in the past about the releases

Hello @AiZ, do you have a compile of the lastest commit of flac and/or libflac?

Mostly bugfixes. Maybe it'll also work slightly faster.

flac-fdc1ccf.7z
Looks like the GCC build (32 bits SSE2) needs the MSVC 2010 runtime (Msvcr100.dll).
Is it expected ?

No, it's my GCC was configured this way some time ago and I forget to revert the changes.
Here are the fixed executables:

Thanks :)

This GCC build now works without the need of any MSVC runtime.

However, the I just noticed the ICC build doesn't run on Windows XP.

Actually it still requires msvcrt.dll, but this DLL is shipped with Windows, and there's no need to install additional runtimes.

Yes, they were built with default settings (Vista and SSE2 are required, IIRC).

Well, it's just a flag to turn on in the compiler:

Overwriting 06000000 with 05000100 at 150H and 158H makes it running on XP ;)

WinXP is completely outdated today, no need to support it. Vista+ is OK.

i wonder how john33 is doing? hope he is fine and his great compiles on rarewares is not yet history.

would be great to see a sign of life, maybe even updated vorbis and flac compiles over there ;)

Thank you very much lvqcl.
Is there an automated nightly builder for flac anywhere?
