Changes in beta 2
Updated M3U #EXTINF behaviors
Added console logging of audio device mix format to troubleshoot audio device compatibility issues.

Fixed channel remapping bugs with default audio output.

Changes in beta 4
Fixed Converter & File Operations possibly creating folders that Windows Explorer cannot delete.
Fixed multi channel playback regressions from v1.6.

Changes in beta 5
Reverted to old autocomplete code for existing component to prevent incorrect behaviors.
Improved handling of audio files with uncommon channel layout.

Changes in beta 6
Fixed wrong fade used when changing tracks manually rather than seeking within a track.
Changes in beta 7
Changing volume no longer affects Windows Mixer sliders; restarting foobar2000 no longer resets Windows Mixer slider to 100%.

1.6.1
Added support for HLS: HTTP Live Streaming. To use, add internet M3U8 file through Add Location dialog.
Enabled icy-metadata support for Ogg FLAC internet radio streams.
Updated Properties / ReplayGain page layout if editing a single file.
Improved Properties dialog performance, list of autocomplete entries is populated asynchronously.
Enabled embedded album art loading from raw .AAC files with ID3 tags.
Updated FFmpeg to 4.3.1.
Added support for playing Matroska A_MS/ACM content.
Fixes for rare AAC codec configurations that FFmpeg doesn't fully support - an add-on decoder can override the built-in one for such special cases.
Decoders are now made aware of output sample rate (from Windows Mixer settings) and can decode certain formats directly to the intended sample rate, skipping potential resampling steps.

Foobar is great with lots of functions, but I find its replaygain option non effective or buggy. With aac there's no change in playback after adding gain and none of my external media players seems to recognise the metadata too with ogg files after using the replaygain as they become unrecognisable.

Great software, but I hope they fix the replay gain or at least test it for code integrity in a beta version. Any vorbis file I run replay gain on using Foobar is not recognised in my external media player and android boxes I tested on. The files refuses to play let alone be detected. Strange issue, could it be the meta tags screwing them up causing incompatibilities? They play okay on the computer using Media Player Home Cinema.
