It's great to see the 3 month after I asked it:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....howtopic=15274&
the Vorbis sticky FAQ/Help is at last updated ...

I just wanna add my personnal feeling about it, I have a 150gig experience in Vorbis now & I just wanna tell that I disagree with pointing total ogg newbie to GT3B2 instead of pointing them to the last official version first.

GT3B2 is absolutly NOT the standard in Vorbis in the wild ... it is an advanced HA user toy ...

on 4000 vorbis rip in the wild ... you will found : 1 Garf tuned rip at best ...

so if you are a total Ogg Vorbis newbie try last official Monty version first ... & see if the quality is enough for you ... & there is many chance (95% I would say) that it will be enought for you ...

my "convert MPC/MP3 user to Vorbis" experience learn me that:
1: most Lame APS users switch to Vorbis V1.01 Q5 (95%)
2: most MPC Q5 (or HA readers) users switch to Vorbis GT3B2 Q6 (5%)

(Note: Lame users are very easy to convert while MPC users are very hard ...)

... so if you can't ABX audio artefacts, it is most likely that you will stick with V1.01 ...
I know more than 25 Ogg Vorbis ripper friends & several Vorbis networks ...

NONE of them is using neither GT3B1 nor GT3B2 ...

I don't say that Garf, QuantumKnot, aoTuVa maker & John33 work is bad ... it is GREAT indeed ... but it will only be usefull in two case IMVHO:
1: Monty include the tweak to the official version without the damn 20Kbps bitrate jump.
2: They fork & create their real own encoder tuned for 64to128==>movie & 128to256==> music which will have an harmonized bitrate jump & willl cover all the audio/video bitrate range ... if they would do so ... they should reduce the quality setting mapping to keep the parity with the official version ... then we will have the equivalent of what is Lame versus official MP3 ...

In the wild estimation:

Versions:
pre-RC3: 4%
RC3: 15%
V1.00: 70%
V1.01: 10%
post CSV: 1%
GT3B: 0%

Settings:
Q4: 5%
Q5: 65%
Q6: 20%
Q7: 2%
Q8: 2%
Other: 6%

... so the Ogg Vorbis Standard is clearly V1.01 Q5 ... & that is what I recommend to Ogg Vorbis newbies ...

Hope it Helps ... Thks QK
