Well, -x is usually pretty slow for me anyway.  Does the mono fix you have incorporated break decoder compatibility?

Yes, -x (and especially -hx) is very slow. I think there is a good chance these could be speeded up enough that people might use them more often.

On the mono enhancement, the decoder has not been broken because there is no way to use the feature yet. First, I will put the encoding feature into a beta. Later I will put it into the released code but it will require an command-line option because the resulting files will not play on pre-4.3 decoders.

This all assumes that Pioneer does not announce a new CD player that supports WavPack. In that case I won't change a thing!

Bryant, a small request: could you add exit return codes in wavpack?  For example:

0 - success
1 - mild warnings
2 - severe warnings (don't know if you have this)
3 - encoding/internal errors
4 - input format errors
5 - I/O error (file not found, output not writable etc)
6 - command line usage errors

You could of course return 0 on warnings.

Great when used in batch to check results, using errorlevel N tests.

Thanks.

Sorry about this. Until recently I actually thought I was returning valid error codes but it was pointed out to me that it was not too consistent.

This beta should be better than 4.22 and the 4.3 release will always return an error when there is one.

I had not thought about having different error codes for different types of errors, but I can see why that might be handy. I'll look into that for the future (for now I just return 0 or 1).

Thanks for the suggestion.

1 for errors and 0 for success is good enough for most purposes anyways. Thanks a bunch.

WavPack is a multiplatform application, but the 4.3b you shared are MS Windows only.
So I have to ask when you plan to release this version to us non-Windows users?

Or maybe you only want feedback from a limited user base?

Okay, I have finished up 4.3 and posted the *nix sources here:

[a href="http://www.wavpack.com/wavpack-4.3.tar.bz2]http://www.wavpack.com/wavpack-4.3.tar.bz2[/url]

Please let me know if there's any trouble building. I will put up everything else tomorrow (which I guess is later today for most of you...)

Thanks! 

The only two changes of any significance were fixing Kazuma's bug for raw decoding and making sure that all error paths result in an error status being returned (after Tycho's suggestion).

Most of the work was testing and documentation...

Excellent!
I compiled static binaries on Mac OS 10.4.3, using GCC 4.0.0 (build 5026) without any trouble. Testing remains though.

Thanks a lot!

Sure, lots of trouble building. So much trouble, I built for these platforms:

FreeBSD-x86
NetBSD-x86
HPUX-HPPA
MacOSX-PowerPC
Linux-x86
Linux-ia64
Solaris-SPARC
Solaris-x86
Tru64Unix-Alpha



Edit: I also did quick tests on all of them (encoding lossless and hybrid, decoding lossless and hybrid, CD material)

Any information for which version a command line replaygain utility is planned?

The WavPack website is now updated with all the 4.3 release.

Thanks eveyone for your testing and patience! 

I have a couple weeks available this month; I may be able to put the ReplayGain scanner together soon.
