Thu Feb 6 2003 -- Sweep 0.8.1 Released
=======================================

Sweep is an audio editor and live playback tool for GNU/Linux, BSD and
compatible systems. It supports many music and voice formats including
WAV, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis, Speex and MP3, with multichannel editing and
LADSPA effects plugins. Inside lives a pesky little virtual stylus called
Scrubby who enjoys mixing around in your files.

This development release is available as a source tarball at:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sweep/sweep-0.8.1.tar.gz?download

Latest News
-----------

This release contains performance improvements for basic editing operations,
including reduced memory consumption during cut and paste insert. It also
includes support for creation of new files on the command line, updated
handling of raw file loading through libsndfile, and updated support for
voice activity detection and intensity stereo coding features of the Speex
speech codec.

Mstation.org this month features interviews with Conrad Parker about
the history and development of Sweep, and with Erik de Castro Lopo, the
author of libsndfile and libsamplerate which are used by Sweep.
