Name        : opus
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.0.2
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://www.opus-codec.org/
Summary     : An audio codec for use in low-delay speech and audio communication
Description :
The Opus codec is designed for interactive speech and audio transmission over
the Internet. It is designed by the IETF Codec Working Group and incorporates
technology from Skype's SILK codec and Xiph.Org's CELT codec.

Update Information:

Opus 1.0.2 fixes an out-of-bounds read that could be triggered by a malicious Opus packet by causing an integer wrap-around in the padding code. Considering that the packet would have to be at least 16 MB in size and that no out-of-bounds write is possible, the severity is very low. This new release also has the following changes:


- Changed the behaviour of the PLC to always fill the caller's buffer
- Properly decode in-band FEC for packets with multiple Opus frames
- Hybrid mode quality improvements and fixes
- Fixed bugs in the CELT mode PLC
- Redundant mode transition fixes

Other changes

- Stack reduction
- Doc fixes (many)
- 16-bit fixes
- Misc build fixes
- Minor code cleanup

As usual, this release is fully compliant with the Opus specification.
