Legendary FLAC Format Updated to Version 1.3.0 After Six Years:
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Legendary-FLAC-Format-Updated-to-Version-1-3-0-After-Six-Years-359784.shtml

The most noticeable changes are:
• The development has been moved to the Xiph.org git repository;
 • The --sector-align option of flac has been deprecated;
 • Support has been added for the RF64 and Wave64 formats in flac;
 • The handling of cuesheets with non-CD-DA sample rates has been improved;
 • The error message that is provided when the user attempts to decode a non-FLAC file has been improved;
 • Support has been added 56kHz to 192kHz gain analysis.

Official changelog: https://xiph.org/flac/changelog.html

Precompiled binaries for Windows can be found here: http://www.rarewares.org/lossless.php#flac-bundle

IMHO, as Foobar and many of audio converters  that are popular on Hydrogenaudio forum has already updated, MB should do the same before the stable release to avoid future incompatibility issues.
