Hi laa-folk,

Announcing the release of sfront 0.91 7/30/06, available
for download from:


Here is the change log:

[1] Bug fix: sfront now defaults
to writing 16-bit WAV and AIFF
files, and the command-line flags
for specifying 16-bit WAV and AIFF
files now work correctly (thanks
to Francois Pinot).

[2] Bug fixes in the documentation
and implementation of the custom
control driver API (thanks to
Francois Pinot).

For those of you unfamiliar with sfront, here's a short bio:

Sfront compiles MPEG 4 Structured Audio (MP4-SA) bitstreams into
efficient C programs that generate audio when executed. MP4-SA is a
standard for normative algorithmic sound, that combines an audio
signal processing language (SAOL) with score languages (SASL, and the
legacy MIDI File Format). Under Linux and Mac OS X, sfront supports
real-time, low-latency audio input/output, local MIDI input from
soundcards, and networked MIDI input using RTP and SIP. A SIP server
hosted on the Berkeley campus manages sessions. The documentation
includes a book about SAOL programming.
