Opus approved by the IETF  
Three years after we first tried convincing the IETF to standardize an audio codec, Opus has finally been approved by the IETF. The only remaining step until it's officially an RFC is the RFC editor (fixing last minor issues, typos, ...). That should take in the order of 6-8 weeks (variable), at which point we'll have the RFC and the 1.0 release. Thanks to everyone who helped developing, testing, supporting or advocating Opus.

Great !
I gave it a try and the quality at 96kbps is very good and the encoding is incredibly fast !
Unfortunately I've only been able to play the file with Firefox so far (and by hacking the about:config)

well done
Congratulations Jean-Marc. As a fellow codec writer I can really appreciate the effort you have put in to make this happen.
