I am proud to announce the release of the Universal Batch Converter 0.1. This being our first release, it’s fairly basic. Out of the box, we support conversions between FLAC, WAV, and OGG audio files. Additionally, we support MP3 via LAME and various image format conversion via ImageMagick’s convert program, however these are not bundled in this release. Support is available to add more types for conversion by writing XML files. That is the biggest reason for this release. It represents a conforming implementation of version 1.0 the XML converter specification format as documented on our wiki. There are plenty of bugs and missing functionality, however the program should be able to handle conforming XML files, and as a result can serve as a testbed for adding support.
We have a windows release available now, with a source bundle and static builds for Linux to follow. It is also available via git.
