It isn't really "new", saying this gives a connotation of "unproven",
"not widely
used", etc. Maybe "more recent" ?

Not sure about the "much", might sound fishy to a reader. Maybe
"substantially" ?

Implies it does not work on 75%. Maybe drop a line saying it works on much
more than 25% if allowing plugins, like you need for MP3 (I think ?) in the
first place ?

Maybe mention it can be automated for existing and future audiobooks, such
that any hit will not recur ?

Maybe state clearly that they can offer both, so they would not alienate any
clients who would, for any reason, prefer MP3, and could only gain new
clients by offering Ogg/Vorbis too.
