After more than 10 alpha version, 3 beta, it's definitely a great release! wub.gif
When I included 3.97 for the first time in one test more than two years ago I didn't expected such long maturation time laugh.gif
3.98 is also very promising.

Many thanks to Gabriel, Robert, Alexander, Takehiro, John33 and all contributors!

Roberto compiled the first ones, in my absence, and I compiled the second. I'm not sure what compiler he used, but any difference would be down to that.

Yep, his compile encodes at around 8x while your's does at 10x (P4-HT@2.4GHz). Apart from a slightly different header the mp3s are identical, of course.

Oh? Can I get a summary on the future direction of LAME?

Also, I think I'd estimate that the improvement from 3.90->3.97 was about 10-15% how much room for improvement is there in the future?

10-15% more tonal purity! tongue.gif

I'm assuming you mean 10-15% lower filesize for a given quality? Do you have any research to back this, or is this TOS#8-breaking speculation?

There has been some discussion about proposed features for version 3.98. Specifically this post.

Here's some comments on upcoming features / modifications intended for version 3.98

QUOTE
*Add mp3x build back to the VC8 projects It was present in vc6 projects, but I'd like to try using up-to-date gtk libs instead of the ones from 2000.

*Move intrinsics functions into separate files Right now they are inside the regular .c files. It's not very clean.

*Intrinsics support for gcc, both x86 and x64 Should be a matter of configure detection in order to enable the proper define.

*New short blocks detection
I already started to work on it, but did not touched it since a few monthes. It's faster, and do not need our current kludge introduced in 3.97b3, but would probably need some tuning.

*Resolve issue regarding bit reservoir/max number of bits and FhG decoders.
An issue has been identified that cause FhG DShow decoder to output silence. A workaround is enabled in current 3.98, but it causes some bitrate inflation/waste. More investigations would be needed in order to be able to separate max reservoir use from max frame size.

*Quantized signal power "normalisation" for low bitrates This is in order to avoid dropouts at low bitrates.

laugh.gif ... I guess Aoyumi's leading example of actually releasing a non-beta (i.e. AoTuV Release 1) is now being followed by the rest of the world wink.gif
