MAD is an MPEG audio decoder. It currently only supports the MPEG 1
standard, but fully implements all three audio layers (Layer I, Layer II,
and Layer III, the latter often colloquially known as MP3.).  There is also
full support for ID3 tags.
All work is done in fixed point, so it even works on machines without an FPU.

madplay (0.15.2b-6) unstable; urgency=low
* libtoolize no longer updates config.guess/sub, and cdbs's handling
got fixes a long time ago.  Just let cdbs do it now.  (Closes: #533968)
* Call automake with the --foreign option, so that we don't need
to create empty files that would be needed with --gnu.
* Enable ALSA support. (Closes: #494865)
* Configure options weren't working because:
- You need to tell it to cdbs after the includes
- :+= was being used to set the options.
* Add patch to handle some LAME tags.  (Closes: #494866)
* Remove in clean target.
* New libtool creates new files in diff, remove the in clean target.
* Set compat level to 5.  cdbs autogenerates this, but it wasn't
under cvs control.
