		This is an informal changelog, a summary of changes in each release.  Particulary important for developers is the precise description of changes to the library interfaces.

		<ul>
			<li>
				General:
				<ul>
					<li>Sped up decoding by a few percent overall.</li>
					<li>Sped up encoding when not using LPC (i.e. when using <span class="commandname">flac</span> options <span class="argument">-0</span>, <span class="argument">-1</span>, <span class="argument">-2</span>, or <span class="argument">-l 0</span>).</li>
					<li>Fixed a decoding bug that could cause sync errors with some ID3v1-tagged FLAC files.</li>
					<li>Added <a href="documentation.html#metaflac">HTML documentation for metaflac</a>.</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
			<li>
				FLAC format:
				<ul>
					<li>(none)</li>

			</li>
			<li>
				Ogg FLAC format:
				<ul>
					<li>(none)</li>

			<li>

				<ul>
					<li>New option <a href="documentation.html#flac_options_input_size"><span class="argument">--input-size</span></a> to manually specify the input size when encoding raw samples from stdin.</li>

			<li>
				metaflac:
				<ul>
					<li>(none)</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
			<li>
				plugins:
				<ul>
					<li>Added support for HTTP streaming in XMMS plugin.  <b>NOTE</b>: there is a <a href="http://bugs.xmms.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2038">bug</a> in the XMMS mpg123 plugin that hijacks FLAC streams; to fix it you will need to add the '.flac' extension to the list of exceptions in <span class="code">Input/mpg123/mpg123.c:is_our_file()</span> in the XMMS sources and recompile.</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
			<li>
				build system:
				<ul>
					<li>(none)</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
			<li>
				libraries:
				<ul>
					<li>libFLAC: Sped up Rice block decoding in the bitbuffer, resulting in decoding speed gains of a few percent.</li>
					<li>libFLAC: Sped up encoding when not using LPC (i.e. <span class="code">max_lpc_order == 0</span>).</li>
					<li>libFLAC: Trailing NUL characters maintained on Vorbis comment entries so they can be treated like C strings.</li>
					<li>libFLAC: More FLAC tag (i.e. Vorbis comment) validation.</li>
					<li>libFLAC: Fixed a bug in the logic that determines the frame or sample number in a frame header; the bug could cause sync errors with some ID3v1-tagged FLAC files.</li>
					<li>libFLAC, libOggFLAC: Can now be compiled to use only integer instructions, including encoding.  The decoder is almost completely integer anyway but there were a couple places that needed a fixed-point replacement.  There is no fixed-point version of LPC analysis yet, so if libFLAC is compiled integer-only, the encoder will behave as if the max LPC order is 0 (i.e. used fixed predictors only).  LPC decoding is supported in all cases as it always was integer-only.</li>

			<li>
				Interface changes:
				<ul>
					<li>
						libFLAC:
						<ul>
							<li><b>Changed:</b> Metadata object interface now maintains a trailing NUL on Vorbis comment entries for convenience.</li>
							<li><b>Changed:</b> Metadata object interface now validates all Vorbis comment entries on input and returns false if an entry does not conform to the Vorbis comment spec.</li>

						</ul>

							<li><b>Changed:</b> All Metadata objects' operator=() methods now return a reference to themselves.</li>
							<li><b>Added</b> methods to FLAC::Metadata::VorbisComment::Entry for setting comment values from null-terminated strings:
								<ul>
									<li>Entry(const char *field)</li>
									<li>Entry(const char *field_name, const char *field_value)</li>
									<li>bool set_field(const char *field)</li>

							<li><b>Changed</b> the signature of FLAC::Metadata::VorbisComment::get_vendor_string() and FLAC::Metadata::VorbisComment::set_vendor_string() to use a UTF-8, NUL-terminated string <span class="code">const FLAC__byte *</span> for the vendor string instead of <span class="code">FLAC::Metadata::VorbisComment::Entry</span>.</li>
							<li><b>Added</b> FLAC::Metadata::*::assign() to all Metadata objects.</li>
