04-08-2016 Darkice 1.3 released
o Small bugs fixed by Nicolas Boulenguez <>.
o Bugs related to streaming to remote servers fixed. Patch by Kalle Kulonen
<> and Mark Turner <>.
15-07-2013 Darkice 1.2 released
o Issue #75: Added Ogg/Opus support. Patch by Doug Kelly
o Fix 'Ring Ruffer' reports.
- Increased buffer for jack to 5 seconds
- prevent darkice termination by jack, report no fatal problem when we
have a ringbuffer overflow, can happen during startup
If we can not handle input audio fast enough we just ignore the buffer
and skip it, and just report it.
- new multithreaded connector code, now handles encoders in parallel
and does not spin waiting, cpu load will be very much lower now
Codes uses 2 condition variables to report data availability and
consumer thread availability
- Hopes are that glitching reports will be a thing of the past
- minor compiler warnings fixed
(Fix by Edwin van den Oetelaar)
