Changes from Version 1.4.1 to 2.0.3
A number of improvements have been made to The Levelator's® algorithms based on sample audio files submitted by users. Most notably is a reduction in certain unnatural volume adjustments.
libsndfile has been updated to version 1.0.21 which has fixed the following:
24-bit files are now properly supported.

Adobe Soundbooth files are now supported.
Unicode filenames are now supported.
Very short source files are now supported.
You can now drag/drop and audio file onto the application icon in the OS X Dock.

ctrl-o/cmd-o (Open File...) now works after alt-tab has been used to switch applications.

The formatting of error reports has been improved.
Log files are now unique on a per-user basis.
Known Bugs and Limitations in 1.4.x
Windows 2000 is no longer supported.
The Levelator® cannot open files created by Adobe Soundbooth. We're waiting for a fix in libsndfile 1.0.18.
