I seem to recall from 1.3.0 that there was an issue with the encoder string (for instance "reference LibFLAC 1.3.1 20141125"). I believe this is set at various locations which are also platform dependent and in 1.3.0 some places initially still contained the old version.

Unless this was simplified in the mean time and I missed that, it would be useful to test if the resulting flac files on the various platforms report the correct version.
