		This is an informal changelog, a summary of changes in each release.  (See also <a href="documentation_bugs.html">known bugs</a>.)  Particulary important for developers is the precise description of changes to the library interfaces.  See also the <a href="api/group__porting.html">porting guide</a> for specific instructions on porting to newer versions of FLAC.<br />

					<li>With the new <span class="argument"><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_keep_foreign_metadata">--keep-foreign-metadata</a></span> in <span class="commandname">flac</span>, non-audio RIFF and AIFF chunks can be stored in FLAC files and recreated when decoding.

432
					<li>In the developer libraries, the interface has been simplfied by merging the three decoding layers into a single class; ditto for the encoders.  Also, libOggFLAC has been merged into libFLAC and libOggFLAC++ has been merged into libFLAC++ so there is a single API supporting both native FLAC and Ogg FLAC.</li>

							<li><b>Changed</b> FLAC__StreamDecoderErrorStatus: new error code FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_ERROR_STATUS_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM</li>
							<li>The above two changes mean that when the decoder encounters what it thinks are unparseable frames from a future decoder, instead of returning a fatal error with the FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM state, it just calls the error callback with FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_ERROR_STATUS_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM and leaves the behavior up to the application.</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).

				</ul>
			</li>
			<li>
				FLAC format:

				Ogg FLAC format:
