		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 />

64
					<li>With the new <span class="argument"><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_keep_foreign_metadata">--keep-foreign-metadata</a></span> in <span class="commandname">flac</span>, non-audio RIFF and AIFF chunks can be stored in FLAC files and recreated when decoding.  This allows, among other, things support for archiving BWF files and other WAVE files from editing tools that preserves all the metadata. </li>

339
					<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>Added support for HTTP streaming in XMMS plugin.  <b>NOTE</b>: there is a <a href="http://bugs.xmms.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2038">bug</a> in the XMMS mpg123 plugin that hijacks FLAC streams; to fix it you will need to add the '.flac' extension to the list of exceptions in <span class="code">Input/mpg123/mpg123.c:is_our_file()</span> in the XMMS sources and recompile.</li>

					<li>libFLAC: Sped up encoding when not using LPC (i.e. <span class="code">max_lpc_order == 0</span>).</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>
