a52dec-0.7.3.tar.gz (February 20, 2002): speed enhancements (40% to 80%), bugfixes, and a few new output modules.
a52dec-0.7.2.tar.gz (December 16, 2001): wav format output, improved demuxer which makes it easier to use a52dec as a pipe, lots of minor bugfixes, performance/portability enhancements.
a52dec-0.7.1b.tar.gz (August 31, 2001): small bugfixes - compiles with gcc 3.0, tested and fixed mlib implementation, bugfix in the a52dec test program.

ac3dec-0.6.1.tar.gz (March 27, 2000): This is aaron's latest release. This is old ! The project was essentially unmaintained for a while, but work has now restarted as you can see.
A daily snapshot is created using "make distcheck" every night. It is easier to use than the CVS repository, because you do not need to have the right versions of automake, autoconf and libtool installed. It might be convenient when working on a liba52 port for example.
The latest liba52 and a52dec source code can always be found by anonymous CVS:
# export CVSROOT=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/liba52 # cvs login (Just press Return when prompted for a password) # cvs checkout a52dec
You can also browse the latest changes online.
The other CVS modules are ac3dec-livid for the CVS history of the project while it was still hosted on the linuxvideo.org servers, and ac3dec for the CVS history of the project while the linuxvideo.org servers were down and before the library switched its name to liba52.
