Changes:
QUOTE
Version 4.11 (January 20, 2013)
NEW: Switched from MMX to SSE assembly, making compression and decompression faster.
NEW: Switched to latest Microsoft compiler, making everything around 5% faster.
Changed: Removed support for old Monkey's Audio 3.92 and earlier files (it hasn't been possible to make these files for over ten years -- use an old copy of Monkey's Audio to convert these files to the latest format if you have any).
Changed: Fixed a few compiler warnings.
Changed: Removed dependence on third-party NASM assembly compiler in favor of intrinsics (which compile nicely with all major compilers).
Changed: Put all Monkey's Audio source code into a namespace APE so that linking into third-party projects should never have name collisions.v
Changed: Switched from #ifndef/endif to #pragma once (now supported by any reasonable compiler).

Moved to Validated News. smile.gif

Itís nice to see APE back after almost two years. Some might think that these are minor changes, but I find them encouraging: it looks like theyíre aimed towards future development. Given how competitive Monkeyís Audio still is (compressing better than TAK, and almost as well as OptimFrog and [the long-dead and glacially slow] La), it would be great to see improvements; in this spirit, a free 5% boost in speed is a great sign!
