Matt Ashland put back version 9.04 on the server upon my request. I still need to find time to migrate to the new build system...

Yes, I know, I need to spend some time to look into the build system. I stopped my systemd updating service when they changed the build system... Perhaps I will find some time in the next few weeks...

Hello. Version 904 is no longer in repository and 920 and forward doesn´t have the NonWindows project path. What to do?

I have changed the update service to be more robust against the developer's link changes. Now I check if the latest link has been updated and is different from that in PKGBUILD, rather than rely on version numbers. This strategy stems from the fact that Matt Ashland changes the links by appending minor SDK releases without changing the version history.

At last the 8.91 and 8.92 SDK updates for which I contributed all the fixes bring correct pipe support for ffmpeg, even with 24 bit files, e.g.

ffmpeg -i file.flac -f wav -acodec pcm_s24le - | mac - file.ape -c4000

Thanks a lot!

It is somewhat difficult though, because although I provide feedback to the main developer, the code is not on git and just shared via archives. In other words, there are no automated build actions or CI for each "commit" that would prevent changes that break the Linux/OSX build...

That, and all the code being a mix of Windows-heavy outdated C++ with pure C, do not help making easy modern C++ changes and fixes to the existing code.

I have already fixed some console output because of these wchar_t... However, pipes still do not work with ffmpeg -i {} -f wav - | mac - (just with flac -dsc {} | mac -).

Thank you! You're doing a great job maintaining this package. :)

We've fixed it.
