<P>FLAC is currently in the beta stage. As of version 0.5, the format has been frozen. The tools may already be archival quality but I want to do some more testing before an official release. Always use the verify option (-V) when encoding before deleting your originals. Also note the new MD5 signature feature in the stream header and the new test mode (see the <A HREF="documentation.html">documentation</A> page).</P>

<B>FLAC 0.5 released.</B> This is the first beta version of FLAC. Being beta, there will be no changes to the format that will break older streams, unless a serious bug involving the format is found. What this means is that, barring such a bug, streams created with 0.5 will be decodable by future versions. This version also includes some new features:
<UL>
<LI>An MD5 signature of the unencoded audio is computed during encoding, and stored in the Encoding metadata block in the stream header. When decoding, <B><TT>flac</TT></B> will now compute the MD5 signature of the decoded data and compare it against the signature in the stream header.</LI>
