Well. The Grand Merge happened, and the bitstream format froze. It is a good thing. The libs are at 1.0. The missing features now are just that; missing features. Some moderately important (proper short packet handling, error return codes instead of just '-1', and so on) but still just.... missing features.
Oh, and tuning. There's more tuning to do. But we beat mp3 across the board now. That's what it's all about, eh? I can worry about other things for a little while before I try the Next 5 Month Plan To Improve Residue Vector Classification.
Oh, and another day without doing anything mildly embarrassing on the motorcycle. I must be improving.
