> I'm pleased to announce version 0.6.0 of CELT, with many quality
> improvements. This includes better stereo coupling, better handling of
> transients, and better handling of highly tonal signals. In addition,
> packet loss robustness has been improved through the optional use of
> independent (intra) frames. CELT now supports a larger dynamic range,
> suitable for encoding 24-bit audio (float version only). There is also a
> very early VBR implementation.
> Now, 0.6.0 is also the version that just got submitted as an "IPR-free
> codec" Internet draft:
> http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-valin-celt-codec-00.txt
> For those who aren't aware of it, there is an ongoing discussion about
> creating an IETF working group for standardising unencumbered audio
> codecs that everyone can use. There will be a BoF at the next IETF
> meeting (26-31 July) in Stockholm to discuss that. I encourage those
> interested in taking part in the mailing list discussion (
> https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/codec ) and/or attending the BoF
> in Stockholm. I will be co-chairing this BoF with Jason Fischl from Skype.

Does this mean that the bit format is now stable?
