libVorbis 1.2.3 released

Xiph.Org announces the release of libvorbis-1.2.3. This is a short-cycle bugfix release that incorporates several minor improvements as well as one major bugfix over 1.2.2. This is purely an errata release without additional features.

A bug affecting playback of very short files using libvorbisfile was found shortly after release 1.2.2. This bug affects playback of Vorbis audio files where all audio packets fit onto a single audio page. Although Vorbisfile will open the file and report a correct length, playback results in zero samples. As libvorbisfile is widely used for sound effects in games, we deemed an immediate correction important. 1.2.3 offers a complete fix for this problem.

The 1.2.3 release is available from http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/
