libOgg 1.4.4: release candidate 1 announced
Xiph.Org is pleased to announce a release candidate of libogg 1.1.4. This release candidate will have a trial period of two weeks followed by full release. The only changes between now and the full release date will be fixes to any regressions we may have missed in the release testing process. This is intended to be a fully stable release and the hope is the 'rc' moniker is a formality.
Changes in the new libogg release include:
- Updates to documentation, including new API documentation for API additions that had been missed in previous releases.
- New iovec write interface.
- A new asynchronous error reporting interface; rather than the need to check for an error return after every call, and internal or usage error will simply mark the working state 'not ready' and the error status may be checked at the end of a block. The libogg calls in-between become safe no-ops.
- Various build fixes intended to keep the autofoo and Windows build mechanisms up to date.
This release is ABI and API compatible with previous incarnations of libogg.
