I see that the vlc developers have upped their flac version to 1.3.0-pre4 as flac slowly moves towards a new release. After a bit more vlc guide housekeeping this guide might very well follow suit. For those who wish to get in ahead of me here is a link:

Looks like it is just about ready for release...
