With the team lead by Thomas Davies at the BBC working hard for many years now on creating Dirac it is great to see the specification out. It was equally great to see David Schleef announce Schrodinger 1.0.0 at the end of last Month. Schrodinger is as most of you know a high performance implementation of Dirac in ANSI C. It is meant as a tool for people to be able to easily integrate Dirac support into their applications and systems. Which is also why it is available under very liberal licensing terms in the form of a GPL/LGPL/MPL/MIT quadruple license.
Anyway to celebrate the release of both the specification and the implementation we managed to put together and send out a press release for the Schrodinger project.
So once again congratulations to everyone involved, lets all work to get Dirac widely adopted. Personally I am hoping to that combination of Dirac video, FLAC audio in a Matroska container could be a killer combination to get started on mainstream adoption.
