I just released FLAC 0.5 (Solaris binaries will show up tomorrow).
FLAC is now beta; see the homepage as to what that implies:


This version adds a MD5 signature of the raw audio signal to the
stream header, which can be compared against when decoding to test
the integrity of a file.  A test mode (-t) has been added to flac
to do just that.

There is a slight slowdown due to the improved Rice coder, which
yields a bit better compression.  For the versions up to the first
official release I will probably be concentrating on performance.
