Changes in version 1.6.5:
- Rewritten internal 7-zip support – now opens large files without running out of memory.
- Updated ReplayGain scanner: improved speed, added classic ReplayGain scanning mode as an option.
- Converter now warns about conversion of float32 to integer format, as it is not lossless if the source file isn’t peak-normalized.
- “Remove Tags” now retains Apple gapless (iTunSMPB) information on MP3 files.
Rational: tag manipulation should not cause the file to decode differently.
Opt out of this behavior in Advancd Preferences.
- Fixed some M4A chapter titles not reading correctly.
- Added support for itunes catalog for M4A files. (beta 2)
- Fixes for instability from extreme 7-zip reader memory usage. (beta 3, beta 4)
