		This is an informal changelog, a summary of changes in each release.  (See also <a href="documentation_bugs.html">known bugs</a>.)  Particulary important for developers is the precise description of changes to the library interfaces.  See also the <a href="api/group__porting.html">porting guide</a> for specific instructions on porting to newer versions of FLAC.<br />

430
					<li>In the developer libraries, the interface has been simplfied by merging the three decoding layers into a single class; ditto for the encoders.  Also, libOggFLAC has been merged into libFLAC and libOggFLAC++ has been merged into libFLAC++ so there is a single API supporting both native FLAC and Ogg FLAC.</li>

					<li>libFLAC: Trailing NUL characters maintained on Vorbis comment entries so they can be treated like C strings.</li>
					<li>libFLAC: More FLAC tag (i.e. Vorbis comment) validation.</li>
					<li>libFLAC: Fixed a bug in the logic that determines the frame or sample number in a frame header; the bug could cause sync errors with some ID3v1-tagged FLAC files.</li>
					<li>libFLAC, libOggFLAC: Can now be compiled to use only integer instructions, including encoding.  The decoder is almost completely integer anyway but there were a couple places that needed a fixed-point replacement.  There is no fixed-point version of LPC analysis yet, so if libFLAC is compiled integer-only, the encoder will behave as if the max LPC order is 0 (i.e. used fixed predictors only).  LPC decoding is supported in all cases as it always was integer-only.</li>
