fre:ac snapshot 20170729 has been released and is now available for download!

The new release includes a simple protocol viewer and improves handling of several audio formats. It changes the way virtual .aiff files generated for audio CD tracks on macOS are handled to prevent the CD drive from constantly repositioning the laser, allows decoding some .m4a files with defective headers that previous versions rejected and adds support for decoding ATRAC-1 files.

The new version also introduces some performance optimizations that can speed up parallel conversions by up to 5% and updates all codecs to the latest versions, most notably the Opus codec to the new 1.2 release.

In addition, fre:ac 20170729 includes lots of minor improvements and fixes for issues found in earlier versions of fre:ac.

Upgrading to the 20170729 release is strongly recommended if you are using an earlier snapshot. Please be aware, however, that this is a preview release and not meant for daily work. Please report issues on the SourceForge bug tracker or by email to

The new snapshot is available in the downloads section.
