Xiph.Org is pleased to announce a release candidate of
libvorbis-1.2.2. This is primarily a bugfix release to push out
many fixes, some of which have been in SVN for a long time but
haven't warranted their own release mainly due to being picked up
asynchronously by distributions. Aside from the arcane bugfix
list in the SVN logs, this release includes a few new bugfixes
that languished due to lack of any screaming, as well as some
nice seeking-related performance inprovements to libvorbisfile.
This release has been a long time in the making, and for that
reason we do not expect any additional changes or fixes prior to
the release candidate being granted full release status in a week
or two. Nevertheless, the possibility of a last minute screwup
always exists, please test this prerelease and contact us if
anything is amiss.
Work has already begun on the next two libvorbis releases. The
approximate roadmap is: the async error interface just added to
libogg will be the next change to libvorbis, and will be the
basis of the 1.2.3 release. AoTuV merges are scheduled for
immediately after and will form the basis of 1.3.0.
The 1.2.2 release candidate 1 is available at the usual place,
Thanks and happy hacking!
