[flac-dev] Another big fish to support FLAC

Hi all,

FYI, Microsoft has added FLAC support to their latest preview 
build (9926 to be specific) of Windows 10 last month. Support in 
this case means FLAC plays back in Windows Media Player (or any 
other application using the same framework) without having to 
install any plugins. Support for metadata is still limited, but 
this might improve before the final release.

Microsoft has also announced that FLAC will be supported for 
Windows Phone 10.

I'd say this might be another step for FLAC to become even more 
of a de facto standard than it already is.
