Hi all,

It hasn't really been publicized much yet, but Apple has a new 
container file format called CAF:


CAF files current support integer and float PCM formats, A-law,
u-law and a number of others including AAC and Apple's own Apple 
Lossless Audio Codec (alac).

I have already implemented support for what I can (PCM, A-law,
u-law) in a libsndfile pre-release:


and I'm thinking of adding support for FLAC in a CAF container
as well. Is anyone else working on this? If so please let me
know so we can agree on how FLAC should be contained with CAF.
