Releases are first made through SourceForge and can be found <A HREF="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13478">here</A>.

FLAC should be and stay an open format. The source code is all either LGPL'd or GPL'd.
FLAC should be and stay an open format with an open-source reference implementation.
</LI>
<LI>
FLAC should be lossless. This seems obvious but lossy compression seems to creep into every audio codec. This goal also means that flac should stay archival quality and be truly lossless for all input. Testing of releases should be thorough.

<P>FLAC 1.1.0 is out. New features include ReplayGain and cue sheet support, improved 24-bit compression, and tag editing in the plugins. See <A HREF="news.html#20030126">here</A> for the full list.</P>
<P>Note that the minor version has incremented, meaning forward compatibility was broken (forward compatibility means an earlier decoder can play all streams made by a later decoder). This is only because of a bug in 1.0.4 and prior where the decoder could not properly skip unknown metadata. The stream format itself has not changed and FLAC is still fully backward-compatible. All it means is that a FLAC file containing cue sheet metadata will not decode in older decoders. This bug is fixed in 1.1.0.</P>
<P>Attention <A HREF="http://www.turtlebeach.com/site/products/audiotron/producthome.asp">AudioTron</A> users: Bery Rinaldo has released his <A HREF="http://file-ext-map.sourceforge.net/">Samba File Extension Mapping VFS Module</A> that allows FLAC files to be played on the AudioTron.</P>
<P><B>Just in:</B> <A HREF="http://www.livephish.com/">livephish.com</A> is now offering recordings in FLAC format in addition to MP3.</P>
<P><B>Neuros:</B> Neuros and Xiph.org are <A HREF="http://www.neurosaudio.com/press/news_item.aspx?itemID=80">collaborating</A> to bring Vorbis support to Neuros Digital Audio Computers. Now that FLAC is part of Xiph, Neuros is <A HREF="http://www.neurosaudio.com/support/GeneralFunctionsfaq.asp#a8">considering FLAC support</A>.

<P>FLAC has joined the Xiph project; see <A HREF="http://xiph.org/ogg/flac.html">here</A> for the press release.</P>
<P><A HREF="http://xiph.org/">Xiph.org</A> is behind other free codecs such as <A HREF="http://www.vorbis.com/">Vorbis</A>, <A HREF="http://www.theora.org/">Theora</A>, and <A HREF="http://www.speex.org/">Speex</A>. Our merger with Xiph will bring FLAC into the ranks and lead to better integration with the <A HREF="http://www.xiph.org/ogg/">Ogg multimedia framework</A>.</P>
<P>Note that the FLAC format is not changing, native FLAC will continue to exist, and the command-line tools and plugins will continue to work as before. The codec libraries will now be available under Xiph's BSD-like license.</P>

Over the next few days we will be transitioning normal operations off SourceForge and over to Xiph.org; first will be CVS and the web pages, followed by the mailing lists, bug tracker, and file release area. We will keep a mirror here until the transition is complete. It's OK to send patches to the flac-dev list but they won't be able to be integrated until CVS is fully moved over.
