Actually only the decoder 1.0 (that is release-canditate 1) is coming this
weekend. We'll still have to wait a bit for the RC1 encoder.
Anyway, to answer your question. Yes I think it is OK. I have a couple
of CDs encoded with beta4 in -b192 mode and there are no
apparent artifacts. Since you are encoding your CDs you can always
re-encode. So, if you don't want to wait any longer, encode them with
beta4 and eventually you can re-encode them once final 1.0 version
(I hope you not trying to re-encode your MP3 by decompressing
them to WAV and then encoding in OGG, because this way you'll
only lose quality).
