The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports
several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats
(ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4
metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio
applications using one or more of these profiles.
This package contains the frontend.

faac (1.28-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Add "XS-Autobuild: yes" to debian/control and clarify in debian/copyright
that this package can legitimately and technically be auto-built

* Disable mp4v2 support.
This only disables mp4v2 for the faac utility program. The faac
utility is GPL-2 but the mp4v2 library is MPL-1.1. The two licenses
are incompatible with each other.
