Fri Feb 15 16:52:21 JST 2008 Conrad Parker <>
* Version 0.9.7
This release adds a new oggz-sort tool, includes fixes for serialno

of presentation time. (See below for rationale and usage).
* 'oggzdiff --revert' fixes for long oggzdump packetinfo lines
* oggz-comment: Modified to copy data pages verbatim.
* oggzinfo: Fixed for skeleton interpretation on big-endian hosts.
* oggzinfo: Various cleanups in skeleton.c (ogg.k.ogg.k)
* Updated known (non-experimental) content types in all man pages.
* Added information about the use of oggz_tell_granulepos() in
OggzReadCallbacks for retrieving calculated granulepos values.
* Added modify-headers example, demonstrating how to write a program
which modifies Ogg header packets but leaves data pages intact.
liboggz API:
* Added oggz_comments_copy().
* Added oggz_comments_generate(), which does not require a
packet_type argument. Deprecate oggz_comment_generate().
* Added oggz_stream_get_numheaders(), implemented for all known codecs
* oggz_serialno_new() now only generates serialnos which will fit
within a 32bit integer.
* oggz_write_feed() now fails with OGGZ_ERR_BAD_SERIALNO if it is
passed a serialno outside of the 32bit range.
* Added OGGZ_CONTENT_CELT to the public OggzStreamContent enum.
* Fixed a bunch of x86-64 compiler warnings. (Erik de Castro Lopo)
* Updated acinclude.m4 to latest ogg.m4. (Ivo Gonçalves)

Sun Jan 13 13:27:57 JST 2008
* Version 0.9.6
This release adds a new oggz-comment tool, and improvements to
liboggz's determination of timestamps and seeking. Specifically,
liboggz now inspects the encoded data in order reconstruct the
expected granulepos (corresponding to a timestamp) for every packet
in an Ogg stream. This allows applications to use reliable
timestamps, even though these are only sparsely recorded in most
Ogg streams.
* Added new oggz-comment tool (Kangyuan Niu)

oggz_stream_get_content(), oggz_stream_get_content_type()
(Shane Stephens)
* Added oggz_tell_granulepos function to query liboggz for
granulepos values. (Shane Stephens)
* Added Vorbiscomment API oggz_comment_*() for manipulating comments
in Ogg Vorbis, Speex, Theora, FLAC files (Conrad Parker, Ian Malone)
* Added oggz_get_numtracks() (Conrad Parker)
* Added automatic calculation of missing granulepos values
in Vorbis, Speex, Theora (Shane Stephens) and FLAC (Conrad Parker)
* Seeking improvements (Shane Stephens)
* Corrections for C standards support (Erik de Castro Lopo)
* GNU Autotools build system updates (Ralph Giles, Thomas van der

Mon Mar 13 14:58:23 EST 2006 Conrad Parker <>
* Version 0.9.5
* Fixed and updated Windows (Visual Studio) support
- added missing exported symbols, projects for oggz tools.
(Alex Krumm-Heller, Silvia Pfeiffer)
* Support for OggPCM (Draft 2, Main header)
OggPCM is an experimental specification for storing uncompressed
PCM audio in Ogg bitstreams.
- liboggz: Recognition of OggPCM timestamps, and support for
seeking in files that contain OggPCM logical bitstreams.
- oggzinfo: Display OggPCM header details
- oggzdump, oggzrip: New [--content-type pcm, -c pcm] option
to filter on OggPCM
- oggz-validate: Validate framing of OggPCM logical bitstreams
This version is installed on for
online validation of OggPCM files.
For more information about OggPCM, see:
* ./configure support for large (>2GB) files
This version adds build configuration support for large files,
allowing liboggz to operate on files >2GB. This version does
not introduce any API changes; interfaces such as oggz_tell()
continue to use off_t externally. However, sequential reading
and validation of large files is now possible.
* bug fixes and cleanups:
- oggz-validate, oggzmerge, oggzdump, oggz-scan, oggzinfo: handle
unknown content types (Ian Malone)
- remove deprecated oggzed example
- various code and documentation build cleanups
Tue Feb 14 10:14:09 EST 2006 Conrad Parker <>
* Version 0.9.4
* liboggz: Added new oggz_run() convenience function
- equivalent to calling oggz_read() or oggz_write() in a loop,
but only returns upon completion or error
- added new oggz_run_set_blocksize() function
- updated libtool shared version info to 3:0:2
* liboggz: Improved callback handling
- added delayed callback error handling for oggz_read*() and
oggz_write*() functions. When a reading or writing operation is
stopped by a user callback returning OGGZ_STOP_OK or OGGZ_STOP_ERR,
that return value is cached and reported by the subsequent call
to oggz_read*() or oggz_write*() (unless no data has been read or
written, in which case it is reported immediately as before). This
ensures that a user callback returning OGGZ_STOP_OK or
OGGZ_STOP_ERR is always explicitly acknowledged without requiring
the application to track its own errors.
* Improvements to oggz-validate:
- added ability to run oggz-validate on stdin, using "-" as filename
- added --prefix, --suffix and --partial options to suppress errors
when only validating the specified portion of a complete stream
- add --max-errors num option to specify the maximum number of
errors to bail out after, or 0 to show all errors (ticket:154)
- if an input file fails oggz_open(), continue processing other
files on the commandline rather than exiting immediately
- improved documentation of errors detected by oggz-validate
- added --help-errors (-E) option to just list known errors,
without other help text around
* oggzmerge: When merging Vorbis and Theora streams, ensure the
Theora header appears first in the output file in conformance with
the Ogg Theora bitstream specification. (ticket:189)

Fri Oct 7 16:59:32 EST 2005 Conrad Parker <>
* Version 0.9.3
* New oggz-scan tool (silvia)
oggz-scan displays timestamps of characteristic features in an Ogg
file. 'oggz-scan --keyframes file.ogg' displays timestamps of
unforced Theora keyframes, which are a useful rough approximation of
shot boundaries. Results can be output as plain text, CMML or HTML.
* Improvements to oggz-validate:
- added page-level validation, ensuring that a page that ends zero
packets has the correct granulepos, -1. (MikeS)
- added a check that any Theora bos pages come before Vorbis and
Speex bos pages. (ticket:156) (conrad)
- correct handling of chained files (ticket: 162) (conrad)
* win32 build fix for oggz tools (j^)
* liboggz: replace internal typedef of oggz_off_t, use off_t instead
of long (ticket:161) (Grayfox)
* examples/fix-eos: discard trailing incomplete packets from the end
of the stream. (MikeS)
* remove autogenerated manpages (ticket:155) (conrad, silvia)
Mon Jul 11 22:14:14 CST 2005 Conrad Parker <>
* Version 0.9.2
* added rewrite-pages example code stub to build tools from
* added fix-eos example tool to fix missing EOS flags (MikeS)
* Build system improvements (thomasvs)
* oggzinfo: Fix calculation of content duration. (ticket:117)
* oggzmerge: Fix an interleaving error in oggzmerge. (ticket:121)
* oggzrip: fix memory corruption detected by glibc on Fedora Core
(reported/fixed by thomasvs)
* oggz-validate: report streams with missing *** eos (ticket:146)
* oggz-validate: report and fail on non-Ogg files (ticket:147)
* Removed need for ./configure --disable-shared when running tests
under valgrind

* Version 0.9.1
* Added new oggzinfo tool
* Added new oggz-validate tool
* oggzdump now displays packet lengths (in bytes, kB, MB, GB ;-)
and timestamps (rather than just byte offsets).
* oggzdump now interprets theora granulepos as a split of keyframe|pframe
* oggzdump now also has a --content-type (or -c) option for
specifying the name of a particular bitstream to dump
* r1176: fix some typos in oggzdiff which prevented multiple hide
options from being specified
* r1092: fix a bug in raw seeking, where doing a raw seek by bytes
and back again by time (to the original time point) hadn't
invalidated the cached time offset, hence the second seek was
considered unnecessary and skipped. This change correctly
invalidates the cached time offset when doing a raw byte seek.
* oggzrip filtering decisions are now made at the start of each logical
bitstream, not at every packet. Additionally, the hardcoded limit of
extracting no more than 64 logical bitstreams from the input file was removed.
