That's not entirely true. Between 3.99.2 and 3.99.5 some encoder changes were made, although probably nothing that affects sound quality. Mostly tagging issues, obscure crashers and compilation problems. The changes made in 3.99.5 to fix variations in encoded files' bitrate from different compiles can result in smaller Mp3 files created by the 32-bit RareWares compile and possibly others.

From the changelog:

There was a bug that produced an audible artifact under some circumstances that was addressed with the release of 3.99.5.http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/...howtopic=93344
Thanks so much! I didn't know this. LOL I feel silly.
