Dear Free Audio Tool Lovers,

I am very pleased to announce the first official release of FLAC, the Free
Lossless Audio Codec, in over 6 years. FLAC is not dead! It is however a
mature software product that is now being maintained by a team working
under the auscpices of the Xiph.Org Foundation.

The executive summary of changes in this new version:
* Nothing major.
* Source tree is now hosted in Xiph.org git: git clone git://git.xiph.org/flac.git
* Read and write appropriate channel masks for 6.1 and 7.1 surround input WAV files.
* Added support for encoding from and decoding to the RF64 format.
* Lots of build system fixes for your building enjoyment.

The full changelog is here: https://www.xiph.org/flac/changelog.html

Happy lossless encoding and decoding.
