<P>
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.
</P>
<P>
<A NAME="flac_1_1_1"><B>FLAC 1.1.1</B></A>
</P>
<P>
<UL>
<LI>
General:
<UL>
<LI>Ogg FLAC seeking now works</LI>
</UL>
</LI>
<LI>
FLAC format:
<UL>
<LI>Make invalid the metadata block type 127 so that audio frames can always be distinguished from metadata by seeing 0xff as the first byte.</LI>
</UL>
</LI>
<LI>
flac:
<UL>
<LI>Print an error when output file already exists instead of automatically overwriting.</LI>
<LI>New option <A HREF="documentation.html#flac_options_force"><TT>-f</TT> (<TT>--force</TT>)</A> to force overwriting if the output file already exists.</LI>
<LI>New option <A HREF="documentation.html#flac_options_cue"><TT>--cue</TT></A> to select a specific section to decode using cuesheet track/index points.</LI>
<LI>New option <A HREF="documentation.html#flac_options_totally_silent"><TT>--totally-silent</TT></A> to suppress all output.</LI>
<LI>New (but undocumented) option <TT>--apply-replaygain-which-is-not-lossless</TT> which applies ReplayGain to the decoded output. See <A HREF="http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17293&st=11">this thread</A> for usage and caveats.</LI>
<LI>When encoding to Ogg FLAC, use a random serial number (instead of 0 as was done before) when a serial number is not specified.</LI>
<LI>When encoding multiple Ogg FLAC streams, <TT>--serial-number</TT> or random serial number sets the first number, which is then incremented for subsequent streams (before, the same serial number was used for all streams).</LI>
<LI>Decoder no longer exits with an error when writing to stdout and the pipe is broken.</LI>
<LI>Better explanation of common error messages.</LI>
<LI>Default extension when writing AIFF files is .aif (before, it was .aiff).</LI>
<LI>Write more common representation of SANE numbers in AIFF files.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: calculating ReplayGain on 48kHz streams.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: check for supported block alignments in WAVE files.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=679166&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#679166</A>: flac doesn't respect RIFF subchunk padding byte.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=828391&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#828391</A>: --add-replay-gain segfaults.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=851155&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#851155</A>: Can't seek to position in flac file.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=851756&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#851756</A>: flac --skip --until reads entire file.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=877122&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#877122</A>: problem parsing cuesheet with CATALOG entry.</LI>
<LI>Bug fix: <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=896057&group_id=13478&atid=113478">#896057</A>: parsing ISRC number from cuesheet.</LI>
