<P>The FLAC 1.0.3 beta period is wrapping up; the official release will be sometime in mid-July.</P>
<P>FLAC 1.0.3 is out. This release includes a decoder speedup, 24-bit input support, more robust plugins, a new metadata block for Vorbis-style tags, a vastly improved metadata editor, and for developers, a new C++ object wrapper library around <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B>, among other things. For a complete list see <A HREF="news.html#20020703">here</A>.</P>
<P>Also note that <A HREF="http://www.phatnoise.com/">PhatNoise</A> now officially supports FLAC in both the PhatBox/Kenwood Music Keg firmware and the PhatNoise Music Manager software; see the announcement <A HREF="http://www.phatnoise.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=74">here</A> for more info.</P>

<B>FLAC 1.0.3 released</B>&nbsp;&nbsp;Although by number only a 0.0.1 increment, this release is significant. Remember, micro-revisions mean the FLAC format remains both forward and backward compatible, however, the libFLAC API has changed for the better.

<UL>
<LI>24-bit input support restored in <B><TT>flac</TT></B>.</LI>
<LI>Decoder speedup in <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B>, which is directly passed on to the command-line decoder and plugins.</LI>
<LI>New <TT>-F</TT> option to <B><TT>flac</TT></B> to continue decoding in spite of errors.</LI>
<LI>Correctly set granulepos in Ogg packets so seeking Ogg FLAC streams will be easier.</LI>
<LI>New <A HREF="format.html#metadata_block_vorbis_comment">VORBIS_COMMENT</A> metadata block for tagging with Vorbis-style comments.</LI>
<LI>Vastly improved <B><TT>metaflac</TT></B>, now with many editing and tagging options.</LI>
<LI>Partial id3v1 support in Winamp plugins.</LI>
<LI>Updated Winamp 3 plugin.</LI>

<LI>New <B><TT><A HREF="documentation.html#libflacpp">libFLAC++</A></TT></B> API, an object wrapper around <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B>.</LI>
<LI>New <A HREF="format.html#metadata_block_vorbis_comment">VORBIS_COMMENT</A> metadata block for tagging with Vorbis-style comments.</LI>
<LI>Customizable metadata filtering by type in decoders.</LI>
<LI>Stream encoder can take an arbitrary list of metadata blocks, instead of just one SEEKTABLE and/or PADDING block.</LI>
</UL>
<P>
Bugs fixed:
<UL>
<LI>Fixed bug with using pipes under Windows.</LI>
<LI>Fixed several bugs in the plugins and made them more robust in general.</LI>
<LI>Fixed bug in <B><TT>flac</TT></B> where decoding to WAVE of a FLAC file with 0 for total_samples in the STREAMINFO block yielded a WAVE chunk of 0 size.</LI>
<LI>Fixed bug in Ogg packet numbering.</LI>
