I've released FLAC 0.6.  The big improvements are:

- encoding speed in default mode (-6) is at least 3x faster
- a new "loose mid-side" adaptive algorithm should help -1 and -5 modes
- a new analyze mode for developers
- a autoconf/libtool-based build system (thanks to Matt Zimmerman)
- bug fixes related to pipes

Check the new comparison page.  FLAC has the best ratios of any open
source codec (and some closed-source ones), now at competitive speeds,
with features like MD5 built in.
