<P>FLAC is currently in the beta stage and the format has been frozen. The current version is 0.10 and has many improvements since 0.9. The encoder and decoder are both significantly faster as a result of C and assembly optimizations. There are also several new features; see <A HREF="news.html#20010607">here</A> for the complete list. This is probably the last beta before the first official release.</P>
<P>Remember, since FLAC is still technically beta, always use the verify option (-V) when encoding before deleting your originals.</P>
<P>If you use FLAC and have suggestions or bugs, please <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=13478">join the mailing list</A> or <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/project/memberlist.php?group_id=13478">developers group</A> and help us move to an official 1.0 version.</P>
<P>FLAC 1.0 is out! It's been a long time coming but it's finally here. Thanks to everyone who made it possible. FLAC is now clearly the strongest open source lossless audio codec and will continue to improve through the work of the open-source community.</P>
<P>The differences since 0.10 are mostly bug fixes but there is a new feature for aligning encoded files on sector boundaries. The complete list of changes is <A HREF="news.html#20010720">here</A>.</P>
<P>FLAC 1.0 has been through a huge amount of testing now, including tens-of-thousands of unit and regression tests, and thousands of real-life CD audio tracks. However, if you're paranoid like me you can keep using the verify option (-V) when archiving.</P>
<P>If you use FLAC and have suggestions or patches, please <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=13478">join the mailing list</A> or <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/project/memberlist.php?group_id=13478">developers group</A>. Bugs can be filed <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?func=addbug&group_id=13478">here</A>.</P>

<B>FLAC 1.0 is out!</B>&nbsp;&nbsp;It's finally here. There are a few new features but mostly it is minor bug fixes since 0.10:
<UL>
<LI>New '--sector-align' option to <B><TT>flac</TT></B> which aligns a group of encoded files on CD audio sector boundaries.</LI>
<LI>New '--output-prefix' option to <B><TT>flac</TT></B> to allow the user to prepend a prefix to all output filenames (useful, for example, for encoding/decoding to a different directory).</LI>
<LI>Better WAVE autodetection (doesn't rely on ungetc() anymore).</LI>
<LI>Cleaner one-line encoding/decoding stats.</LI>
<LI>Changes to the libFLAC interface and type names to make binary compatibility easier to maintain in the future.</LI>
<LI>New '--sse-os' option to 'configure' to enable faster SSE-based routines.</LI>
<LI>Another (hopefully last) fix to the Winamp 2 plugin.</LI>
<LI>Slightly improved Rice parameter estimation.</LI>
<LI>Bug fixes for some very rare corner cases when encoding.</LI>
