SOX is intended to be the Swiss Army knife of sound processing tools.
It does many things, it just does not do them all well. Sooner or later
it will come in very handy. SOX is really only usable day-to-day if you
hide the wacky options with one-line shell scripts.

- Added patches:
* CVE-2017-11332.patch: Fixed the startread function in wav.c, which allowed
remote attackers to cause a DoS (divide-by-zero) via a crafted wav file.
(CVE-2017-11332 bsc#1081140)
* CVE-2017-11358.patch: Fixed the read_samples function in hcom.c, which
allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS (invalid memory read) via a crafted
hcom file. (CVE-2017-11358 bsc#1081141)
* CVE-2017-11359.patch: Fixed the wavwritehdr function in wav.c, which
allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS (divide-by-zero) when converting a
a crafted snd file to a wav file. (CVE-2017-11359 bsc#1081142)
* CVE-2017-15370.patch: Fixed a heap-based buffer overflow in the ImaExpandS
function of ima_rw.c, which allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS during
conversion of a crafted audio file. (CVE-2017-15370 bsc#1063439)
* CVE-2017-15371.patch: Fixed an assertion abort in the function
sox_append_comment() in formats.c, which allowed remote attackers to cause
a DoS during conversion of a crafted audio file. (CVE-2017-15371
* CVE-2017-15372.patch: Fixed a stack-based buffer overflow in the
lsx_ms_adpcm_block_expand_i function of adpcm.c, which allowed remote
attackers to cause a DoS during conversion of a crafted audio file.
(CVE-2017-15372 bsc#1063456)
* CVE-2017-15642.patch: Fixed an Use-After-Free vulnerability in
lsx_aiffstartread in aiff.c, which could be triggered by an attacker by
providing a malformed AIFF file. (CVE-2017-15642 bsc#1064576)
* CVE-2017-18189.patch: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference triggered by a
corrupt header specifying zero channels in the startread function in
xa.c, which allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS (CVE-2017-18189
- Removed sox-doublefree.patch
2017-12-19 -
- sox-doublefree.patch: initialize comment, it might
get returned back with OK. (bsc#1064576 CVE-2017-15642)
2017-08-25 -
- Enable lame/mad/twolame unconditionally
- Remove ffmpeg/opus conditional because it is always present
2017-03-06 -
- Replace libopus-devel with pkgconfig(opusfile) BuildRequires:
this is what configure looks for, and will actually build the
optional opus support as intended.
2015-09-22 -
- Update to 14.4.2
o Add optional support for reading Ogg Opus files.
o Fix for max size text chunks in aiff files.
o Add reading support for RF64 WAV files.
o Work around for libsndfile created RF64 files with invalid
o Detect MS ADPCM WAV files with invalid blocks.
o Detect Sphere files with invalid header sizes.
o 'Deemph' can now also be used at 48kHz sample rate.
o 'Rate' now much faster in many cases.
o Allow sending spectrograms to stdout.
o Allow use of Dolph window with spectrograms.
o Allow mixing time and sample-count arguments for the delay
effect, and for spectrogram -S and -d.
o Support multi-channel LADSPA plugins.
o Support infinite repetition with repeat.
o Improved pink noise frequency response in synth.
o Extended syntax for specifying audio positions to several
o Fix integer overflow in mcompand. [3590093]
o Add optional latency compenstation for LADSPA plugins.
o New -p option for soxi to display sample precision.
o New libsox example6: give explicit output attributes.
o Speed optimization for effects that operate on channels
o Fix memory leaks.
o Most internal symbols (lsx_*) are no longer exported.
- Drop sox-14.4.0-ocloexec.patch as it brings little enhancement
and there has been no activity at upstreaming it
- Enable ffmpeg and opus by default
