Ripped from other thread, thought it might need some proper newsie attraction.

BTW. Did you know there's a new lossless encoder? It's called "La" (short for "lossless audio"). It compresses better than anything else, but is very slow (about as fast as Psytel, so no problem for Roberto ). It is only a prototype and the format can change. Also there's not yet a Winamp plugin. But, check it out!

PS. a frontend is coming soon...
Windows only, not open source. I'm not going near that thing.
BTW, from the webpage:
The following is a list of the best lossless audio compressors available. My recommendation would be to use Monkey's Audio unless you have specific needs which dictate otherwise.
Good compression, but as stated earlier in this thread, it doesn't seem to have much of an future at the moment...
I tried it out the other day. VERY good compression!
