Been a while since the last release, but I hope I got enough fixes to make it
worthwhile. The crash with DirectSound failing to initialize is fixed, as
well as compilations with some MSVC versions. Windows users can also now
specify a configuration file, in %AppData%\alsoft.ini (it actually gets the
path via win32api functions, but this path is typically mirrored in the
AppData environment variable).
As mentioned more recently, there's a small example app that prints out OpanAL
info. This would be useful, for example, to make sure OpenAL Soft is actually
being used. And also, the compiler should be able to generate better code
using strict-aliasing optimizations.
Both the GIT repo and new SVN repo are up-to-date with this version. I'll be
attempting to upload the source archive to the new OpenAL site, as well.
PS. In case you downloaded 1.4.270, 1.4.272 is just a one patch fix for a bug
that slipped into the DSound backend. You do not need to redownload if you
don't use it on Windows.
