<P>FLAC is currently in the beta stage and the format has been frozen. <B>Note: upcoming version 0.9 will have the Winamp2 plugin fix.</B> The latest version 0.8 has a lot of new things; see <A HREF="news.html#20010305">here</A> for full details, but in short: 1) there is a new metadata editor; 2) 24-bit files are now supported; 3) there is a new metadata block for third-party applications; and 4) lots of bug fixes. FLAC is now much closer to an official release.</P>
<P>Since FLAC is still technically beta, always use the verify option (-V) when encoding before deleting your originals.</P>
<P>FLAC is currently in the beta stage and the format has been frozen. The current version 0.9 will probably be the last beta before the first official version. See <A HREF="news.html#20010324">here</A> for the changes since 0.8.</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>
