The ALSA developer community has announced the release of TinyCompress 0.2.0, the small user-space library for dealing with ALSA's audio compression APIs that are present in recent Linux kernel releases.

For those unfamiliar with the TinyCompress library, see my original article on the project from February.

Today's TinyCompress 0.2.0 release brings support for non-blocking I/O, support for recording compressed audio content, no polling when writing the last file buffer, and a lot of other bug-fixes and changes.

More details on TinyCompress 0.2.0 can be found via its release announcement.
