Apple’s ALAC Codec is Now Open Source
The big news today is that ALAC is now open source. “Apple Lossless Audio Codec sources are available under the Apache license,” according to Mac OS Forge, and the project “contains the sources for the ALAC encoder and decoder.”
Great to hear that Apple open-sourced the ALAC codec. Hopefully this means we’ll see the standard adopted in some of the cloud music services.
