LAME 3.11  June 3 1999

  • Almost all warnings (-Wall) now fixed!  (Thanks to Jan Peman)
  • More coding improvements from Gabriel Bouvigne and Warren Toomey.
  • VBR  (variable bit rate).   Increases bit rate for short blocks and for frames where the number of bands containing audible distortion is greater than a given value.  Much tuning needs to be done.
  • Patch to remove all atan() calls from James Droppo.

Version2.0 of LAME is built from the ISO source code (dist10), and incorporates modifications from myself and the 8hz effort. The output file from LAME v2.0 is identical to the output of the ISO encoder for my test file.Since I do not have heaps of time, I left the ISO AIFF file reader in the code, and did not incorporate a WAV file reader.Added section on quality October 1 1998 Up to September 1998
