Any progress on vorbis tags for FLAC?
Just wondering if there's been any progress implementing this in Tag, or other. I am honestly trying hard not to be impatient

Thanks guys, tonderai

You can use metaflac to add vorbis comments:

metaflac --set-vc-field=artist=blabla --set-vc-field=title=blabla file.flac

However, the flac plugin for winamp doesn't yet support vorbis comments. And the comments will never be utf8-encoded due to a bug in metaflac.

All these will be fixed in the next release, so it's best to wait some more...

I should mention that ASCII is a subset of UTF-8 so if you are just using ASCII it is safe.

As to when the next release is... hmm, probably a month or two.  I just finished the file encoder layer in libFLAC and created a libOggFLAC wrapper for doing Ogg FLAC streams; before this was just a hack in the command-line flac.  All this was to make the next little project easier: I started a cross-platform (wxWindows) transcoder/transtagger GUI called FUI which uses all the new stuff in the library.  But this will probably take longer than I wanted to get flac 1.0.4 out. The only big things left to do are finish the new Doxygen-based API docs and finish 24-bit support for the plugins., and a bunch of little things like this UTF-8 support in metaflac.

Sorry it took so long, but FLAC support is finally implemented.
I included two other requested features, rest will follow later once I know FLAC support works flawlessly.
Download Tag 2.0.25.

I have checked in the new UTF-8 support in metaflac to CVS if you are keen to try it out.  Otherwise if you wait a few weeks you can try the 1.0.4 beta.

I'll try to get vorbis comments in the plugins for 1.0.4 if I can.
