Commit 5fa6ed90 authored by Martijn van Beurden's avatar Martijn van Beurden Committed by Erik de Castro Lopo

Fix dead links and copyright year

This patch fixes *a lot* of broken links, updates links which were
redirecting (especially links to the sourceforge bug tracker) and
updates the copyright notice to 2014. Finally, it fixes a few
issues raised by lvqcl on the flac-dev list

<h3>feature comparison</h3>
<p>The evaluation of lossless codecs typically depends mainly on features other than speed and compression, which is what our first table shows: features like how well it is supported in devices and software, licensing, etc. For more information on this matter, take a look at <a href="http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Lossless_comparison">the comparison at Hydrogenaudio</a>. Additionally, as archiving is one of the main applications for a lossless codec, of chief importance is the ability to use and recover data in the future. FLAC stands out as the most widely supported codec, and the only codec that at once is non-proprietary, is unencumbered by patents, has an open-source reference implementation, has a well documented format and API, and has several other independent implementations.</p>

The following are major known bugs in the current (1.3.0) release:
<ul>
<li>
If you use the --replay-gain option with flac, but no --padding/-P option, only a very small padding block will be created. The workaround is to always use a -P option when using --replay-gain to make sure the correct amount of padding is added.
</li>
<li>
When encoding to Ogg FLAC, the progress indicator is broken
</li>
<li>
When encoding to Ogg FLAC, the number of seek points is limited to 240.

The first two have been fixed, these fixes will be incorporated in the next release.

Before Winamp 5.31 it was necessary to use our FLAC plugin. If you have an older version of Winamp, our plugin is still available in the <a href="http://cyberial.com/flacinstaller.asp">FLAC Installer for Windows</a>. The Winamp plugin should work for both Winamp2 and Winamp5. All that is necessary is to copy <span class="code">in_flac.dll</span> to the <span class="code">Plugins/</span> directory of your Winamp installation. There is nothing else to configure.
