After a long hiatus Spek is back in Debian. It’s already in testing which means it will be included in the upcoming Debian Bookworm version to be released later this year. It also means Spek will eventually find its way into Ubuntu, Mint, and other Debian derivatives. I want to give a huge shout-out to Matteo Bini for making this happen! 🤘
Beta versions of v0.8.5 installers for Windows and macOS are now available, you can get them on the download page. The packages include all the features and fixes accumulated over the last few years. Some of the highlights:
A recent version of FFmpeg (used for decoding audio files).
Adjustable colour palette, DFT window size and function.
The ability to switch between audio streams and channels.
Support for High DPI displays.
The Windows installer supports only 64 bit systems, let me know if you have a use case for a 32 bit build. The macOS installer requires Catalina or a newer version. It’s built for Intel CPUs but should work with the new ARM chips. Report bugs on GitHub if you bump into any issues.
The next step for the project is fixing outstanding bugs and making an official release. Please comment if there’s anything else you want prioritised.
