FLAC 1.4.0 released
09 Sep 2022
This release brings many small improvements and a few large ones. Here are the most important for end-users:
- FLAC can now encode and decode 32 bit-per-sample audio. This means the FLAC format is now one step closer to being fully implemented. Note that this is 32 bit integer samples, not 32 bit float samples.
- Compression for presets 3 through 8 has improved with only a small decrease in encoding speed, while presets 0, 1 and 2 got faster.
- Compression on 64-bit ARMv8 (used in for example new Apple computers) is now much faster
The API and ABI has changes for both libFLAC and libFLAC++, so developers are encouraged to review the porting guide.
See the changelog for more information.
