Convert to FLAC 2.1 Released

Submitted by jbreland on Sun, 09/27/2009 - 23:39

I just uploaded a new version of Convert to FLAC. Aside from a handful of bug fixes and other miscellaneous improvements, the big new features in this release are:

  • Support for converting multiple files concurrently (see the -t option)
  • Support for using ffmpeg as an alternative decoder (see the note about this on the convtoflac page for details and caveats)
  • Support for optionally sending input files to your "trash" after completion (as opposed to leaving or deleting them); this relies on trash-cli

The concurrency support is really the main driver for this release. If you have a dual- or quad-core system, you should upgrade to 2.1 ASAP. This sucker really flies now. :-)
