FLAC 1.1.3 has been released. Almost 2 years in the making, FLAC 1.1.3 is a major release with improved compression, improved cover art and multichannel support, better recovery for corrupted files, many new features and options in the command-line tools, and several bug fixes. For developers, the decoder and encoder APIs have also been simplified and there is a new porting guide. See the changelog entry for complete details.

From the changelog: "Much better recovery for corrupted files"
Is this a decoder improvement, or a change to the file stream which requires the file to be encoded with 1.1.3? The speed & compression improvements are good, but not "reencode my flacs" worthy. Error correction would be though.

the improvement is entirely in the decoder, not due to any format changes.

I am surprised that this major update did not receive at least 1.2 status! wink.gif

yes, this is a common question so I made a FAQ for it: http://flac.sourceforge.net/faq.html#api__release_versioning

as for the -A bug, I feel your pain! since this release had so much new stuff I plan on doing another one soon to correct major things that have cropped up.

I thought most people are using tools like EAC, AutoFLAC, frontend, etc where the command string is only specified once, and it is easier to do the workaround. there is another possible workaround that involves running the binary in a "C" locale. I have no idea how you do that on windows but with unix it would just be
CODE
LANG=C LC_ALL=C flac -5V ...

That's me.

Josh, I want the absolute best compression (ripping from CD via EAC), and I do not care about encode time. So what combination of flags do I need to set? Currently I'm using -8. It looks like now I need to specify -m --best -e ?
