Great stuff!

For the checklist, can I suggest you also make sure all resulting FLAC files are encoded with the new date in their encoder string? 

As for the changelog, I have kept track of those changes that might be more interesting for end-users and developers using the format (so no build-system improvements for instance). Now, I’d be the first to admit that I haven’t always been paying attention so you are probably better positioned to decide what I’ve missed and what shouldn’t make the cut. These were on my list that I believe you haven’t covered yet:

Changed the LPC order guess for a slight compression improvement, particularly for classical music

Improved encoding speed on older Intel CPUs

libFLAC: Support 64bit brword/bwword allowing FLAC__BYTES_PER_WORD to be set to 8. This is disabled by

libFLAC: Fix potential memory leaks

Fixed a segmentation fault in libFLAC

Put an upper bound on the number of seek points
