The people who made the program SuperMp3Normalizer have chosen to re-name their product "MP3Gain PRO". I had nothing to do with this product, so don't email me support questions ;)

Zan Smogavc and his friend have translated MP3Gain into Slovenian.
5 Feb 2009
"REIKA" has translated the Help file into Japanese.
9 Jan 2009
Luiz Gaspar has updated the Brazilian Portuguese translation.

Thomas Dieffenbach has created a Linux GUI for MP3Gain. It just went beta, so check it out and give him feedback
19 March 2005
Just a reminder that the new AAC part of mp3gain is experimental. It's simply newer, so problems are still being found (and fixed). Use it at your own risk, and I'd suggest backing up your files first.
10 January 2005
Bug fixed. If you use AACGain with the MP3Gain GUI, make sure you get aacgain version 1.2 or later.
09 January 2005
Well, that was a quick bug discovery ;)
AACGain 1.1 does work with the latest MP3GainGUI, but it incorrectly reports an error even after a successful run. Dave is releasing version 1.2 very soon.
Also, Dave and I will hopefully be merging the code in the near future, so AAC support will be completely integrated into MP3Gain. We'll keep you posted.

AACGain: Dave Lasker has added AAC support to mp3gain.exe. He wrote aacgain.exe specifically so it would work with the existing MP3GainGUI without too much trouble.
To get it all to work, go download the latest MP3Gain (either "1.2.5 Stable" or "1.3.4 Beta"). Then download AACGain. Un-zip aacgain.exe, re-name it to "mp3gain.exe", and move it into the MP3Gain folder, copying over the existing mp3gain.exe.
That's all you have to do. Now MP3Gain should handle AAC files (.m4a or .mp4).
Please note that aacgain will not work on DRM-encoded files (i.e. music you buy from the iTunes store). It should work just fine with AAC file you create yourself using iTunes, though.
And a technical note for command-line users: As part of coordinating this release with Dave, I've finally fixed the program return codes in mp3gain.exe to match what everyone else in the world does. So as of version 1.4.6, 0 means success, and non-zero means failure.

Java GUI: Samuel Audet has whipped up a simple java GUI for mp3gain. So for you non-Windows users who want a GUI but can't wait for my initial wxWidgets version, you now have another option. As a reminder, Mac users also still have MacMP3Gain, upon which this new JavaMP3Gain was based.

Version 1.3.2 (Beta) is out. I still only recommend it if you really need Unicode support.
Version 1.2.4 (stable) now includes the extra little tweaks that 1.3.1 had, but without the Unicode stuff. For instance, double-clicking on a file in the list opens the mp3 file in your default player.
03 October 2004
Sigh. Version 1.3.1 is still buggy. Hence the "beta" name. Don't use it unless you really need Unicode support.
13 September 2004
Version 1.3.1 is the new beta. It's exactly the same as 1.3.0, plus a bug fix:
In 1.3.0, file names were sometimes re-named to lower case after running MP3Gain on them. For example "HiThere.mp3" would become "hithere.mp3"
07 September 2004
Version 1.2.3 is officially "stable".
Version 1.3.0 is the new beta version including limited Unicode file name support
Version 1.2.3 is now available on the Downloads page. No real changes since version 1.2.2 (just a tiny, almost inconsequential bug fix). But the Help file is now up-to-date, and I will be making more changes very soon.
