Hi all,

I have heared that it is allowed now to include MP3 support in open
source, as MP3 patents have timed out... is that true?

I ask because I still have set the default for MP3 support to "disabled"
in the build system of my application (Kwave), to avoid problems for

If it is ok for you, I would like to change the default of MP3 support
to "enabled" and make MP3 import (through libmad + Kwave plugin)
available per default - like most users expect.

Anyone voting against it?
