This release allows you to drag and drop a file into the software executable and it will pre-fill the input and output textboxes, saving you time from browsing for an input and output location.

I've also released CMIX GUI v1.6.

Introducing the new, better PAQCompress GUI

Hi everyone,

I started this year being productive and have coded for the past couple of days, hence my absence of posts in this site. I've worked on updated a graphical user interface I wrote several years ago for the PAQ Compression software. At the time, I had limited skills writing code, and my GUIs were not that great. Hence, I took that software and rewrote it from scratch to provide a better user experience. I also updated the software to support the latest PAQ versions, including the latest PAQ8PX and PAQ8PXd releases.

The GUI now looks like this:

Opus GUI v1.2 released!

Hi everyone,

Late yesterday, I released v1.2 of Opus GUI:

This new release brings several improvements. v1.1 was also released but was immediately superseded by v1.2 due to an uncorrected bitrate bug.

First, the GUI will now display the opusenc.exe version being used. This is useful because sometimes, new opusenc versions are released which I personally compile and try to see if there's new improvements to the audio files.
