Since the first beta of Slackware 14 is now out, would it be possible to bump the version of mpg123 in -current before 14 goes final, please? I've maintained my own 1.14 package for Slackware 13.37 and it's been working well so far. In my eyes, the most significant change since 1.13.3 is the improvement of the remote interface, which is used by some media players that use mpg123 for playback (e.g. gmusicbrowser
As a side-note, I wish more media players - and GStreamer - would use mpg123 for MP3 decoding, because it's the only library that correctly supports LAME info-tags (and therefore is the only library that provides proper support for gapless playback of LAME-encoded MP3s). Oh well, I can dream...
