The OpenMPT/libopenmpt project released the latest stable libopenmpt version:

libopenmpt 0.7.7 (2024-05-12)

  • [Bug] examples/libopenmpt_example_c_pipe.c and libopenmpt/bindings/freebasic/libopenmpt_ext.bi were missing from the Autotools package.

  • [New] New Makefile CONFIG=mingw-w64 option WINDOWS_CRT=[crtdll,msvcrt,ucrt] to select the toolchain CRT library.

  • [Change] build/download_externals.sh now verifies the integrity of any downloaded files and uses curl instead of wget.

  • [Regression] Optimization level when compiling with GCC 14 has been forced down to -O1 due to the severe miscompilation GCC 14 has shown on MinGW-w64 amd64 (see https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=115049).

  • IT: Disable a few more compatibility flags for older SchismTracker builds.
  • IT: Halve the output volume of files saved with ChibiTracker, as its mixer
  • is about half as loud as ours.
  • S3M: In mono mode, the ratio between sample and OPL volume was incorrect.
  • S3M: Detect files saved with PlayerPRO.
  • XM: Detect files saved with PlayerPRO. Improved detection of files saved with ModPlug Tracker.
  • XM: Files with impossibly small pattern headers are now rejected, like FastTracker 2 does.
  • STK: Loosen SoundTracker file rejection heuristics a bit to allow loading of files with malformed song titles and overly long samples. Other heuristics has been tightened a bit.
  • MOD: Change VBlank timing heuristic to always assume CIA timing when long samples unsupported by original ProTracker) are found.
  • MOD: Disable NoiseTracker quirks if empty sample slots have a default volume other than 0.
  • MOD: 7-bit panning detection may have returned incorrect results for MODs with a channel count other than 4.
  • MED: Improve handling of default tempo, panning and channel volume in files containing more than one song.
  • MO3: Reduced maximum allowed music data (not samples) size from 2 GiB to 512 MiB.
  • XMF: Header validation is now stricter.
  • MDL: Slightly more accurate import of pattern command 9 (enabling envelopes instead of setting envelope position).
  • ULT: Support the highest three octaves.
  • OPL emulation could produce clicks when using a mix rate higher than 65536 Hz.

  • xmp-openmpt: Subsongs whose length could not be calculate no longer show a duration of -12:-55.

  • mpg123: Update to v1.32.6 (2024-04-04).
