81bc6204 1abcde 2.2.0
2
3 * New release! Let's see if abcde 2.2 gets into Sarge.
4 * Added support for MPP/MP+(Musepack) encoding. Although I am trying to
5 get 2.2 for Debian Sarge release, mpc seems safe enough to introduce. See
6 corecodec.org for code.
7 * Some POSIX shell corrections (making the code more portable). Thanks to
8 Guillem Jover for pointing the problem out.
9 * CDYEAR is also passed to do_move(), so one can use it for sorting the
10 directories.
11 * Small MacOS X fix, allowing directories with "()" to work. Thanks to Evan
12 Jones.
13 - On the MacOS X, I still do not know if abcde works correctly. If does
14 not, please, drop a note. Or else.
15 * DOSPLAYLIST also changes "/" with "\".
16 * DATA tracks are now excluded from the ripping process using internally
17 the cdparanoia "-Q" query option. If using another ripper, it does not
18 work (at least there is no support for them in abcde)
19 (Closes: #112692, #117412).
20 * New "0" choice for "None of the above" has been introduced. If selected, a
21 template is created and the user encouraged to edit it (Closes: #147683).
22 * New options for when the PLAYLIST already exists: erase, append or keep.
23 * Bug fixes along the code:
24 - abcde.1 corrections and additions
25 - abcde corrections and code reorganization. abcde now exits earlier if
26 some of the options are incompatible. Also the actions are set as
27 variables earlier, so we use less calls to external tools.
28 - abcde.conf additions
29 * The GENRE is munged now in its own mungegenre function, so that no more
30 upper-to-lowercase is done (forced) except if the default is used.
31 * Examples added to the tarball and /usr/share/doc/abcde/examples with two
32 scripts to make abcde kind-of-a ripper daemon.
33 * Changed to experimental to have an stable 2.1.x version in Sarge.
34 * Add CDDB information to Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files (Closes: #265358).
35 * Added INTERACTIVE option. Set it to "n" and there you go, without user
36 interaction.
37 * Changes normalize to normalize-audio (Closes: #267053)
38 * Copes with wav files being erased by the ripping tool.
39 * Small patch to support ()'s in the path under MacOSX. Thanks to Evan Jones
40 for noticing and sending the patch.
41 * Added -w for COMMENT seed. Used to give a comment to a given CD.
42 * Option "-t <number>" added to modify the numbering from a starting point
43 (Closes: #95828). Geez! That is low bug number...
44 * Added -T to modify also the tag entries on the songs. Currently available
45 for FLAC and Ogg/Vorbis.
24473a44 46 * Removes trailing spaces (Closes: #280382).
47 * TRACKNAME now combines multi-lines from long CDDB entries.
48 * debian/rules:

61 * The "Let's have a good abcde in Sarge" release.
62 * The mungefile() function changes * with + by default to avoid creating
63 directories with the start expanded to the files found in the current
64 directory. abcde2.2 will most likelly contain a better workaround.
65 * Correct default OUTPUTFORMAT in man page (Closes: #250649)

91
92 * New setting for the CD speed. Some drives have a higher failure ratio when
93 spinning at high speed.
94 * Added a pre-read function for preparations. Uses include closing the CD
95 tray (Closes: #137548).
96 * Added COMMENT part in OggFlac metadata.
97 * Documentation update: README, abcde.1
98 * Do not tag GENRE and DATE in Ogg/Vorbis if CDDB does not provide them
99 (Closes: #235531).
100 * Solved bug with batch encoding, thanks to Travis McKay.
101 * When *DATAPREFIX was set, the playlist creation was made without newline.
102 * Added >&2 redirection to visualize the "Erase playlist" question
103 (Closes: #241221).
104 * Added the option "-m" to modify the resulting playlist, to contain CRLF at
105 the end of every line, letting some hardware players which insist with
106 DOS-style files to use them. Also, added DOSPLAYLIST as a config option.
107 * When using a selected, localy cached CDDB entry, we forgot to show the
108 selection when asking the user for editing the choice. Now we show it.
109 * Improved the logic in the order of events when using a local CDDB repo.

114
115 * EDITOR is called now evaluating the variable, so it works with full path
116 and arguments.
117 * Patch for making md5sum a variable (since some systems use a different
118 name).
119 * Correction by "huf" <mihi at mail.eol.hu>. The test code in line 376
120 needed some quotes.
121 * The PADDING code and some CDDB funcions were *really* messy. Now it looks
122 cleaner, works faster and some not needed network operations are no
123 longer performed when we are working with local CDDB repositories.
124 * Added "-V" for extra verbosity (on slow networks the user might be waiting
125 and wondering is somethins is happening).
126 * Solved a bug with the non-interactive code.

137
138 * Solved the problem with re-runs of multiple choices not showing all the
139 choices (Closes: #228405) (this was a quick one)
140 * We now show the selected CDDB entry on a second run, instead of all of
141 them (not that one should stop abcde, but just in case). This way
142 consecutive interrupted runs obtain the same results.

147
148 * Check if normalizer is found in the PATH (Closes: #228014)
149 * Added (commented) bits to check if the CD being processed is the CD on the
150 tray, so that if differs we do not eject it.
151 * Store locally the CDDB information, under $HOME/.cddb since it is being
152 used by Grip (at least). PATH is user defined (Closes: #88048)
153 * If you are using cdda2wav and SCSI drives, you can set CDROMID for the
154 SCSI drive, since it differs from the cd-discid CDROM parameter
155 (Closes: #121987).
156 * MacOSX keeps on failing because the OS mounts the CD before we finish
157 ripping it... or something else. Please, test test test the code, and
158 report your findings. Pretty please. I have not been able to make it work
159 with the reports I have received.

164
165 * Urgent fixes for the FreeBSD and MacOSX bits. When using cdda2wav, the
166 CDROM variable must be modified depending on the device interface. By now
167 we will not try to be very smart.
168 * Added a test for HTTPGETOPTS since it cannot be empty for the default
169 HTTPGET options.
170 * Quick release to fix a problem with the CDROM detection code.
171 (Closes: #226647)
172 * Cleaned a bashism. Thanks to Klaus Ethgen (Closes: #226782).
173 * Rewrote some parts of the cdda2wav code. Since I do not have a machine
174 where cdda2wav works, I cannot test the code. The modifications have been
175 done following user reports. If you use cdda2wav and abcde does not work
176 for you, please, contact me and we will try to sort things out. Thanks.

181
182 * INLINETAG and STARTTRACKNUMBER flags added.
183 * CDROM checking is now done with a bit more wiselly (Closes: #219768)
184 * HTTPGET is only requested is "cddb" action is performed.
185 * Workout the possibility of cdparanoia erasing our wav files
186 (Closes: #172694)
187 * The default answer for editing CDDB data is now "y" if the disk is
188 unknown. If not, the default is "n". Requested by Ricky Buchanan.
189 * Now we do not erase silently any previous $PLAYLISTFILE left behind by a
190 previous CD ripping (Closes: #220753)
191 * Write info file with cdda2wav (Closes: #187702).
192 I do not use cdda2wav myself (me is cd-paranoid) so if anyone using
193 cdda2wav has a problem with this, please, report.
194 * CDROM comes in 1,0,0 kind of format for cdda2wav ripper. Corrected with a
195 quick patch. Kudos go to Mikhail Manuilov <viper5k at pisem dot net> for
196 noticing.
197 * Merged bits to make abcde work under MacOSX. Thanks to Evan Jones.
198 * Merged bits to avoid FreeDB people anger and to cut down the "abcde." part
199 of the discid. Now you can set the "-C" command with the directory name.
200 Kudos go to Bart Samwel.
201 * Added some info bits to the config file about normalize, requested by
202 Ricky Buchanan.
203 * Added some testing for the wav file before normalizing, to check that the
204 file is actually there.

235 * Small bug related with DISTMP3NICE solved. Kudos to Wilbert Alberts.
236 (Closes: #213756)

247 * metaflac path corrected (Closes: #206110)
248 * Hopefully this version repairs the comment part for Ogg/Vorbis files.
249 * If nothing breaks, 2.2 will be released as soon as the KNOWNBUG is solved.
250 * Removed all the inline tagging since it breaks the action chain, except
251 in Ogg/Speex. Need to check if "vorbiscomment" can be used for it.
252 (Closes: #206311)
253 * Added DISTMP3NICE variable, to nice the distmp3 program (Closes: #208398)

260 + GENRE can be used for OUTPUTFORMAT and PLAYLISTFORMAT
261 + id3v2 should work now with -c for comments (Closes: #199949)
262 + small bug with batch encoding
263 + Variables are exported before the CDDB functions are called, so they
264 should use the right variables for the HTTPGET command.
265 + Tagging also use TRACKS and CDGENRE for MP3 files (kudos to Dirk
266 Ruediger)
267 + FLAC encoding now uses dismp3 to encode remotelly (kudos to Taylor and
268 Kevin Cramer). HANDLE WITH CARE ;)
269 Also FLAC now uses CDGENRE and CDYEAR for tagging.
270 * tail/head change: -1 has been deprecated. Noted by Stephan Kulow.
271 * Ogg/Speex support added, for speech encoding (Closes #204635)

292 * cddb-tool seq calls converted to functions. No more distro dependencies.
293 * WGET* variables converted to HTTPGET* variables. FreeBSD can safelly use
294 fetch.
295 * More FreeBSD specific bits: CDROM and EJECT changes.
296 * Typo in abcde.conf
297 * Added CDDBPROTO for specifying the protocol level of the cddb query.
298 * CDDB protocol upgraded to 5. CDYEAR and CDGENRE are now used for CD
299 tagging.
300 * COMMENT is now used for inline tagging with oggenc (my mistake it was
301 missing): Closes: #191475.

306
307 * Documentation updates: Closes: #186230.
308 * Usual set of bug fixes and corrections.
309 * Default behaviour of VAOUTPUTFORMAT output changed to avoid multiple
310 directories for a same album. I think the format is more logical, and you
311 can always split the files once they are created.
312 * Padding track wavs with 0 so if you want to burn those wavs just cdrecord
313 *.wav will do it. Use "-p" to force it when encoding a small (<9) number
314 of files (Closes: #111627).
315 * Added "KEEPWAVS" as a variable to keep those wavs. Default is "no". Can
316 use also "-k" in the command line. (Closes: #160372).
317 This probably should be changed with an option to move the wav files to
318 another directory instead of just keep de abcde.<cdid> directory.
319 * Added documentation comments about OUTPUTTYPE (Closes: #184963).
320 * abcde.conf cleanup: (Closes: #186230, #187400).

804 cdgrab, makes things go much faster. This will also prevent me releasing
805 another 0.7.2 :)
