complete WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE support, multichannel assignments in format and documentation, multichannel support for AIFF and WAVE, channel mapping, new --channel-map=none option to flac, saving and restoring of WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE channel mask to/from tag, robust handling of "odd" sample resolutions (i.e. not multiple of 8 bits) for AIFF and WAVE

<li>Improved the <a href="documentation.html#flac_options_decode_through_errors"><span class="argument">-F</span></a> to allow decoding of FLAC files whose metadata is corrupted, and other kinds of corruption.</li>
<li>Encoder can now take FLAC as input. The output FLAC file will have all the same metadata as the original unless overridden with options on the command line.</li>
<li>Encoder can now take WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE WAVE files as input; decoder will output WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE WAVE files when necessary to conform to the latest Microsoft specifications.</li>
<li>Now properly supports AIFF and WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE multichannel input, performing necessary channel reordering both for encoding and decoding. WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE channel mask is also saved to a tag on encoding and restored on decoding for situations when there is no natural mapping to FLAC channel assignments.</li>
<li>Added support for "odd" sample resolutions; all resolution from 4 to 24 bits-per-sample now supported.</li>
<li>Added a new option <a href="documentation.html#flac_options_tag_from_file"><span class="argument">--tag-from-file</span></a> for setting a tag from file (e.g. for importing a cuesheet as a tag).</li>
<li>Added a new option <span class="argument"><a href="documentation.html#flac_options_picture">--picture</a></span> for adding pictures.</li>
<li>Added support for encoding from non-compressed AIFF-C (<a href=";atid=113478&amp;aid=1090933&amp;group_id=13478">SF #1090933</a>).</li>
