Mikmod old news

Back to the MikMod Homepage

Thu Dec 06 2012: The first beta of libmikmod-3.3.x - libmikmod-3.3.1 is out. Eventually, it will lead to the stable libmikmod-3.4.0. The highlight of this release is the conversion of the build system from GNU Autotools to CMake. Some of the GNU Autotools files were kept in the distribution for reference, but they should not be used and will likely be removed before the final release. It is more than likely that the CMake build does not support most of the various old drivers yet, but this should be easy to add for people with access to such systems and some CMake Tuits. This release also features a pkg-config libmikmod.pc file.

Sat Jun 23 2012: The mikmod player 3.2.2 (FINAL) was released. It sports a new color interface by Andrew Zabolotny, with themese, a file selector, recursive directry scanning and a threaded player. See NEWS for more details.

Fri Jun 01 2012: libmikmod-3.2.0 (FINAL) was released. This release allows the ALSA driver to play PCM streams along with other ALSA-using programs, including several instances of the mikmod player. There are many more improvements in comparison to libmikmod-3.1.11, which was the last stable release, including a Mac OS X CoreAudio driver, a loader for .amf modules, and support for recent ALSAs. Now, we are planning to concentrate our efforts in converting the build system to CMake for the next libmikmod stable release.

Sat May 12 2012: libmikmod-3.2.0-beta4 was released. This release contains a better driver for ALSA (the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) which works with recent versions of its API (though at the moment, one cannot share the soundcard with other programs - this is under work), and some cleanup patches by St├ęphan Kochen for converting char* to const char* and for fixing compilation on Microsoft Visual C and other compilers.

Sun Apr 08 2012: libmikmod and mikmod development now has been resumed by Shlomi Fish. The sources were moved to a Mercurial repository hosted on SourceForge.net. libmikmod-3.2.0-beta3 was released (see below for download) with many fixes and improvements.

MikMod at SourceForge.net Tue Apr 12 2005: libmikmod development CVS is now hosted on sourceforge.

Wed Feb 16: The voting period for the logo contest is now over. The winner is #13, by Andre Bommele (a.k.a. SnipeZ / N.D. Ray). I received 10 logos from 4 different persons(not including logos I fetched from previous mikmod websites). Thank you to everyone who submitted logos and voted.

Contest entries and the number of votes they received are listed on the Logo submissions page.

Wed Jan 12: The logo contest is over, it is now time to choose which logo is the best. The voting period will end on Februray 12 (one month period). Each logo has been given a number.

Mon Oct 25: libMikMod and MikMod releases can now be downloaded via ftp, and for those who like to live on the edge, anonymous cvs access is now available. There are a few unreleased changes in CVS already.

Tue Jun 3: I have released a small patch for libmikmod-3.1.11 (which now becomes libmikmod-3.1.11-a). While most of my work and attention goes on the 3.2.x series, I still receive occasional bug reports and patchs for the 3.1.11 version. There are not enough changes to make a full release, but many people may find this patch useful.

  • libmikmod playback now works correcly on amd64 (type size problem)
  • fixed warning issued by automake 1.8
  • config.sub and config.guess updated

You may grab this patch here:
or in the files section.

Sun May 2: The logo contest, which was supposed to end on May 1st 2004, will be extended to 31 December 2004. Let's hope that I will receive more entries until then. I have only received one entry so far.

Have a look to the Logo submissions page.

Sun May 2: libmikmod documentation is now available online. Go to the documentation section to read it.

Mon Mar 22: I have created a page for binary releases. No official binaries are available yet, but there are contributed packages for slackware. See the binary page.

Nologo Wed Mar 3: The MikMod project needs a logo, so a logo contest has been created. The contest will end on May 1st 2004. Please send your submissions by e-mail, at the address mikmod@raphnet.net. Logos submissions can be seen on the Logo submissions page. If you like Mikmod, have artistic skills and free time, go ahead and do something nice!

Fri Feb 20: The beta 2 release, for libmikmod 3.2.0 is out. This release includes a new AIFF disk writer, better MacOS X support, new macintosh project files for Codewarrior 5/6 and Apple's MPW, and fixes for compilation under Solaris. For more details, look inside the NEWS file included in the archive.

There is also a new mailing list, mikmod-announce@raphnet.net. You may subscribe if you wish to be informed about new releases. Refer to the mailing list section for more information.

Mon Feb 2: The beta 1 release for libmikmod 3.2.0 and mikmod 3.2.2 are now available. For more info on the changes, look in the files section and in the NEWS file. There is also 4 screenshots demonstrating new features.

Wed Jan 21: Released libmikmod 3.1.11. This version fixes a few bugs, and has support for being compiled on win32 using lcc. See NEWS for a more complete list of changes.

Wed Jan 14: I have searched on the Web and on Linux distributions FTP sites, in order to find older versions of libmikmod and mikmod. This makes the file section a little more complete. However, many versions are still missing.

Tue Jan 13: A debian package has finally been made for Mikmod player 3.2.1. It is available in the unstable distribution.

Sat Dec 27: I have not been the only one who decided to make his own changes to MikMod since the last release by Miodrag Vallat. Frank Loemker sent me his changes (many, many changes) for the player and the library. I have not yet looked into detail at his changes, but they look very promising. My next releases will probably be based on his changes.

Sat Dec 27: Mikmod player 3.2.1 is available for gentoo linux since Nov 28 2003.

Sat Dec 27: After beeing down for 2 weeks, mikmod.raphnet.net is now back online. The site was down because of a connection problem(due to an irresponsible provider which decided to switch provider themselves, without doing any testing.). Needless to say that I have cancelled my account to select a provider which is more concerned about their customers.

Fri Nov 28: Help wanted! I think it would be great to have a Debian GNU/Linux package for the new player (3.2.1). I have submitted a whishlist type bug into the debian bug system (bug id #214431) on the 6 Oct 2003, but received no feedback yet. If anyone knows how to make debian package and would like to make one for mikmod, please contact me.

Tue Oct 7: Released Mikmod 3.2.1 to fix a mistake in the previous release. See the NEWS files for more information.

Fri Oct 4: I have released my new version of the player.
