Shntool 1.2.0 Rc2 Now Available

SHNTool is a utility for manipulating lossless audio in a variety of formats; the latest release, 1.2.0-rc2 is now available for testing.

Here is a list of recent updates/changes:

version 1.2.0-rc2 (2002-10-31)
  + overall compression ratio shown in len mode if all input files are compressed
  + fixed bug in fix mode that caused shntool to hang in rare instances
  + added support for ofr (OptimFROG) and lpac file formats

version 1.2.0-rc1 (2002-09-12)
  + added support for aiff, flac and ape file formats; dropped kexis support
    (aiff format supports only AIFF and uncompressed AIFF-C, not compressed AIFF-C)
  + added new mode 'conv' (converts files from one format to another)
  + improved functionality in cmp mode (new -s, -l and -f options)
  + join mode can now write to stdout (only with 'wav' output format)
  + shntool now waits for child processes (prevents shorten 3.4/md5sum race condition)
  + fixed bug in join mode that caused output file to have incorrect data size
    when the data was not sector-aligned, and -nopad was specified
  + some debugging output now shown if SHNTOOL_DEBUG environment variable is set
    (currently limited to the status of child processes - useful if shntool is hanging)

    - M.
