Well, I've slaved and toiled for two days straight, gone almost without sleep,
and nearly had my brain explode, and what do I have to show for it? The new
version of the Python module for reading and _writing_ Ogg Vorbis
(http://www.vorbis.org/) files!

What is it?

  It is a module that emulates the wave and sunau interface for Ogg Vorbis
    (http://www.vorbis.org/) encoded files.

Where can I get it?


What do I need for it?

  You need the libvorbis libraries available at

What's new in it?

  - Latin-1 characters in comment values are now decoded

  - Now able to _write_ Ogg Vorbis files with bit-widths of 8, 16 or even _24_

  - Even easier configuration for installation

What's still wrong with it?

  - The last little bit (about 3000 samples) of a song is cut off when
      encoding (Boo! Hiss!)

  - No Unicode support for Python 2.x yet for comment values

  - Still only tested under Linux (testers for other OSes, please come

Who wrote it?

  Why, me of course!
