A Veritable Springtime Orgy of Releases

Released last night: libogg 1.2.0, libvorbis 1.3.1, libao 1.0.0, and vorbis-tools 1.4.0.

*whew*

Aside from bugfixes, the major story here is the first wide release of all the surround hacking I've been doing the past two months. Previous demo pages (one and two) had documented my progress till now; there's actually one more coming that I've just started on.

In addition to that, we also tagged on a release of libogg with a new default page spill rule that reduces container overhead for higher bitrate streams like video. The change is simple, but it's a reduction in bitrate for free so why not. Applications don't have to do anything, just drop in the new lib. In addition to demo pages and blogging, I've also begun a comprehensive expansion of the Ogg documentation (the very beginnings of which are in the release-- not much yet).

The releases as usual can be had from the Xiph.Org downloads page.
