mp3plot 0.6.0, published on

Image of mp3plot 0.6.0
mp3plot creates a plot (textual or graphical) of the bitrate distribution of an MP3 file. It displays which proportion of the audio file uses each of the possible bitrates. The plot can serve, for example, to compare an audio source as encoded by different encoders or settings or to display how the chosen (average) bitrate was achieved by the encoder.

Release Notes: Preliminary support for MPEG-2 and Layers I and II. Detection of sampling rate (defaulted to 44.1kHz) and CRC flag (displayed its value reversed) have been fixed. A nasty bug with free-form bitrate and corrupted files that led to an infinite loop, eventually exhausting memory, has been fixed. There are more warnings where appropriate. The theoretical length is printed in seconds.

VCS 1.13.1 released
A minor update of vcs is available to download. In short, if you don't use Arch and you had no problems running it there's no need to update. It fixes an uncommon bug and updates the build script for Arch Linux. Thanks to Eris Belew for reporting these. See the full changelog for more details. […]

Pipelight: Silverlight en Linux
¡Por fin! Una solución para poder usar sitios que requieren Silverlight en Linux sin problema (en la mayoría de casos, al menos). Hace tiempo que Moonlight está abandonado, muerto y enterrado. Moonlight era el engendro de Novell y Microsoft que implementaba Silverlight (pero no todo) en Linux, y que nunca fué una solución demasiado buena. […]

Relevation 1.2.1 (zip includes PDF and HTML manpage) pre-packaged Debian users can use my apt repository located at Instructions are provided there.
Copying EXIF metadata between files

Also $ exiftool -exif -b source.jpg > source.exv $ mv source.exv target.exv  # Names must match $ exiv2 in -i e target.jpg  # […]
Relevation 1.2 released

There's also a couple of small but important bugfixes. See […]
New tool release: Quick File Share for Android
I've published my second android app, a bit more useful than the first one (and also more prone to be a source of problems :P). Quick File Share is meant to ease file sharing between devices by using a Wi-Fi network. Sharing content between Androids sucks: you can use bluetooth for a painfully slow experience […]
