Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Flacon is an open source application, written in C++ and built by using the Qt libraries, that enables the users to extract individual tracks from big audio files. It has support for the following formats (as input files): WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA) and outputs the following: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.
The latest version available is Flacon 1.0.0, which comes with minor changes:
- Added a set of pre defined patterns and history for they
- Added encoding support for Windows 1250, Windows 1252-1258
- Fix: When there is a slash in the cue file, Flacon creates a sub directory for each value after the slash
- Improved support for high DPI displays
- Improved parsing of nonstandard time in CUE indexes, for example MM:SS.mmm
