FLAC 1.1.4 is released; see the download page and latest comparison. The windows installer for 1.1.4 is not ready yet but should be along soon. If needed you can replace the binaries from the current (1.1.3) installer with the ones in the 1.1.4 .zip on sourceforge.

The main features of this release:
  • Compression improvements in all modes (-0 .. -8) with no change to the format or decrease in speed
  • Speed increases for all modes, both encoding and decoding. Encoding at -8 is twice as fast as in 1.1.3
  • New --warnings-as-errors option for flac
  • Simpler alternative form for --picture/--import-picture-from options
  • Several bug fixes (apodization locale bug, FLAC-to-FLAC transcoding, etc)
  • Reduced memory requirements

The complete changelog is at http://flac.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*.../changelog.html

Developers will be happy to know the API is unchanged!
