165 * The "It took me a long time to get this release out" release.
39538c59 166 * abcde.1: remove -M in favour of "-a cue" (Closes: #382614, #396505).
167 * Added a check for a DOCUE already set in the command line
168 (Closes: #385663).
169 * Added -q <Q> as a quality option.
170 * PREGAP was not set in some situations (Closes: #390170).
39538c59 171 * Added -nv to wget for "no verbose" output, to avoid wget complaining it
172 cannot be quiet and verbose at the same time if "verbose = on" is set in
173 ~/.wgetrc (Closes: #388715).
174 * Added XS-Vcs-Svn: field to control file.
175 * Added some hints if we are using Debian for what packages need to be
176 installed if their binaries are not found.
177 * Spelling mistakes corrected (thanks to Ville Skytta).
6793f084 178 * Unset GREP_OPTIONS to avoid things like printing number in the beginning of
39538c59 179 the line (Closes: #383771).
180 * Default answer to erase a playlist was not working (thanks to Charles
181 Steinkuehler) (Closes: #395108).
182 * Corrected man page wrapping. Thanks to Edward J. Shornock
183 (Closes: #399289).

205
206 * Default to UNICODE (UTF8) tags and comments (Closes: #282332).
207 - Added CDDBPROTO option in config file (Closes: #349951)
208 * Added a missing "INDEX 01" entry for CUE sheet creation.
209 * Avoid completing the encoding of files if we aborted previously.
210 * Embed the CUE sheet if we have a cuesheet file and we have a single FLAC
211 file, even if we are not tagging. This way we can use the file as a source
212 even if it is not tagged/named properly.
213 * Fails to quote filenames properly (Closes: #355296)
214 * Introduced VA/ONETRACKOUTPUTFORMAT.
215 * Added a missing check for AACENCODER.
216 * Updated config file with some new AAC bits.
217 * Updated FSF address.
218 * Corrected NetBSD options for ftp (Thanks to Marius).
219 * The final 2.4 will have "cuefile" as an action instead of as a flag.
220 * Create the cuefile when extracting from a FLAC file.
221 * Small bugs (Charles Steinkuehler):
222 - Added missing quotes (Closes: #375710)
223 - toolame is included in Debian as default MP3 encoder
224 - Use IFS to preserve spaces when adding metadata to a cuefile
225 * Small documentation changes:
226 - abcde.1 (Closes: #364978)
227 * The following entries have in common that both add an internal cue2discid
228 function. I will evaluate which one is more accurate and decide which one
229 to use. Right now they are not conflicting:
230 - Added internal mkcue and cue2discid functions (Charles Steinkuehler) and
231 add a check for internal abcde.<function> to make sure we are using the
232 correct version (not sure if needed ;)
233 - Added an internal implementation of cue2discid, so there is no need for
234 an external program to do the conversion. Thanks to Michael (sorry, his
235 mail does not have a surname).
236 * cue2discid is now an internal function, so no need for including the
237 python script in the path (Closes: #378407)
238 * cddb-tool.1 typo (Thanks to A. Costa) (Closes: #351775)
239 * abcde.1 typo (Thanks to David L. Anselmi) (Closes: #364978)
240 * Set proper nice values to not separate encoding and reading in the pipes
241 situation, while having a high priority process running in the system.
242 Also, set proper nice values to tagging tasks. Reading should remain as
243 the default higher priority task in the abcde flow (Closes: #359156)
244 * Standards bumped to 3.7.2.1, no changes needed.

256
257 * Repaired multiple output encoding (Closes: #351362).
258 * Added missing space on a [] test statement.
259 * Added "default" action, so that one can add things on top of what we do
260 regularly, without having to list everything: "-a default,playlist" works.
261 * Restored all the > /dev/null instead of using grep -q, since it is not
262 portable.
263 * Added Solaris OS entry, in case we need to define things for it.

269 * The "Mao es nuestro indiscutible lider" release.
270 * Check the CDROMREADER options we have in Debian which we depend on. Thanks
271 to Jose Carlos Garcia Sogo for finding the error.
272 * New recursive option for local CDDB repositories, to cope with other
273 players saving the entries.
274 * Brand new CD backup procedure: rip a CD into a single FLAC trac with an
275 embedded cuesheet using "-1 -M -o flac" and proceed to rip your tracks
276 from the obtained file using "-d file.flac -o <format>". It needs
277 cue2discid script from the examples directory to work. OH! If you manage
278 to get it working with bash, we can get rid of the python dependency...
279 * Initial steps to make abcde working with musicbrainz, although it is not
280 ready yet.
281 * Added a missing $ in a variable (Closes: #345629).
282 * Added -p to the mkdir's for $ABCDETEMPDIR (Closes: #345630).
283 * Added iconv + converted to utf-8 the charset of a ready-to-send CDDB
284 entry (Closes: #345708).
285 * Added AAC (Mpeg4) support.
286 * Small cd-discid update.

306
307 * Both -z and -C unset EJECTCD to avoid ejecting the CD when a) we are
308 debuging and b) we are not using the CD.
309 * If we are not reading the CD, set "loud" to see all the output messages
310 (that is, in most of the cases, the first encoding).
311 * Added -f to force some events that otherwise would erase files from our
312 current run. In the standard configuration ("OUTPUT=vorbis") the following
313 actions will need a "-f" to force the last one:
314 abcde -a read,encode -o ogg,flac
315 abcde -a tag,move,clean
316 During the second run abcde should complain that it is trying to erase the
317 working directory while the it has not performed any action on the FLAC
318 files, which we encoded previously.
319 * Convert the old cdparanoia-audio-tracks file into a status entry to avoid
320 eating files from previous rounds using an early version (Closes: #341050)

329 * Suggests mkcue, and erase old cdgrab info since sarge is out.
330 * Changed cdparanoia-audio-tracks to use the status file to save the data.
331 * Added the possibility of using a singletrack flac file with an embeded
332 cuesheet as a source of tracks.
333 * Added -z for easy and quick debug.
cb05cebc 334 * BATCH has been split into two options: BATCHNORM which allows, by using
c1bbe6c3 335 -b, to use the -a normalize in all the files at once, and NOGAP, that by
336 using -g, introduces the lame's --nogap extension.

337 * Added replygain using the appropriate tags with Ogg/Vorbis and Ogg/FLAC.
338 * Replaygain is an action, not a flag, since it can be performed individually
c1bbe6c3 339 in the chain of events.
340 * debian/{rules,control}:
52e09581 341 - Changed the target directory from tmp to abcde, to accommodate to compat
c1bbe6c3 342 mode 4.
343 - Bump standards to 3.6.2.1. No changes needed.
344 * Added "decho" as a DEBUG output for some specific debug variables.
345 * Added USEPIPES file, with information about how to add Unix pipes support.
346 * Added one more checking for PIPES*_* unset variables (which means support
347 is not added to abcde).
348 * Added toolame as an optional MP3 encoder.

392 different than 1 (that is: abcde -T 1 2-10 creates songs 1 to 9).
393 * Modified the FAQ to reflect the changes on Marillat's repo
394 (Closes: #315724).
395 * Should be "space" safe: works properly when the working directory contains
396 a space (Closes: #147493).
397 * Repared the CD query for the discid code. When failing to read a disc,
398 actually report that there might be no disc in the drive.
399 * Right now, walk over the different encoders we Depends: on in Debian and
400 use the one available: if a user has a FLAC encoder, abcde will no install
401 vorbis-tools, so it will fail to run out of the box (Closes: #321216)
402 * Added CUE support. Still experimental...
403 * Added FLAC on Ogg. Still not activated, since we cannot get comments added
404 as a post-process action.
405 * Applied patches from Fedora Core (Credit goes to Nils Philippsen
406 <nphilipp@redhat.com>)
407 * Added a post_read() function to be executed before ejecting the CD.
408 * Typos reported by A Costa corrected (Closes: #311463)
409 * Problem with abcde being run in a directory with files containing only
410 numbers solved (Closes: #313628).
411 * vorbiscomment uses now "-R" (Closes: #303566).
412 * "-t" and "-T" use the first track as a starter for the track list.
413 (Closes: #305749).
414 * Added CDPARANOIACDROMBUS option to define -d in case of using IDE and SCSI
415 in case of using ide-scsi emulation layer (Closes: #290768).
416 * Define metaflac in abcde.conf (Closes: #303555)
417 * Added the default "-f" option to the configuration file, to represent the
418 actual default option.

445 * Options passed to the encoder by using <-o ogg:"-b 192"> are now
446 supported. One can modify the way abcde encodes just for the current CD.
447 * Unfortunatelly I forgot to add the starting number for tags in Ogg. For
448 MP3 is a bit more difficult, since it needs changing the X/YY code.
449 * Also, the order of the tags in metaflac is important for the utf8 names.

481
482 * New release! Let's see if abcde 2.2 gets into Sarge.
483 * Added support for MPP/MP+(Musepack) encoding. Although I am trying to
484 get 2.2 for Debian Sarge release, mpc seems safe enough to introduce. See
485 corecodec.org for code.
486 * Some POSIX shell corrections (making the code more portable). Thanks to
487 Guillem Jover for pointing the problem out.
488 * CDYEAR is also passed to do_move(), so one can use it for sorting the
489 directories.
490 * Small MacOS X fix, allowing directories with "()" to work. Thanks to Evan
491 Jones.
492 - On the MacOS X, I still do not know if abcde works correctly. If does
493 not, please, drop a note. Or else.
494 * DOSPLAYLIST also changes "/" with "\".
495 * DATA tracks are now excluded from the ripping process using internally
496 the cdparanoia "-Q" query option. If using another ripper, it does not
497 work (at least there is no support for them in abcde)
498 (Closes: #112692, #117412).
499 * New "0" choice for "None of the above" has been introduced. If selected, a
500 template is created and the user encouraged to edit it (Closes: #147683).
501 * New options for when the PLAYLIST already exists: erase, append or keep.
502 * Bug fixes along the code:
503 - abcde.1 corrections and additions
504 - abcde corrections and code reorganization. abcde now exits earlier if
505 some of the options are incompatible. Also the actions are set as
506 variables earlier, so we use less calls to external tools.
507 - abcde.conf additions
508 * The GENRE is munged now in its own mungegenre function, so that no more
509 upper-to-lowercase is done (forced) except if the default is used.
510 * Examples added to the tarball and /usr/share/doc/abcde/examples with two
511 scripts to make abcde kind-of-a ripper daemon.
512 * Changed to experimental to have an stable 2.1.x version in Sarge.
513 * Add CDDB information to Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files (Closes: #265358).
514 * Added INTERACTIVE option. Set it to "n" and there you go, without user
515 interaction.
516 * Changes normalize to normalize-audio (Closes: #267053)
517 * Copes with wav files being erased by the ripping tool.
518 * Small patch to support ()'s in the path under MacOSX. Thanks to Evan Jones
519 for noticing and sending the patch.
520 * Added -w for COMMENT seed. Used to give a comment to a given CD.
521 * Option "-t <number>" added to modify the numbering from a starting point
522 (Closes: #95828). Geez! That is low bug number...
523 * Added -T to modify also the tag entries on the songs. Currently available
524 for FLAC and Ogg/Vorbis.

526 * TRACKNAME now combines multi-lines from long CDDB entries.

1242 OUTPUTDIR.

991009a4 1248 * Yet another quick fix to finish what 0.7.6 started - cdgrab should now
1249 handle multiple inexact matches as well. (Thanks again to Robert Macaulay)

1261
991009a4 1262 * Quick bugfix release - with any luck I can start on 0.8 soon :)
1263 * **** YOU WILL NEED TO EDIT CDGRAB.CONF **** if you use lame as
1264 /usr/bin/lamer. The default program name is now 'lame' as of lame v3.0.
1265 If you don't want to touch your lame installation, put the following in
1266 your cdgrab.conf: "LAME=lamer"
1267 * Omits -w from cdparanoia commands
52e09581 1268 * Depends on cdparanoia-bin or cdparanoia now - this accommodates the recent
991009a4 1269 cdparanoia package namechange.
1270 * Fixed a stealth-whitespace typo at line 495. Thanks go to Gregory T.
1271 Norris for tracking this down.

1275cdgrab 0.7.4
1276
991009a4 1277 * Now only uses the first match from a CDDB datafile for the track
1278 information, this works around a cddb glitch some of you may have
1279 hit last month
1280 * Default config file now gets version number from program.
1281 * added 'debug' option to CDROMREADERSYNTAX to get cdparanoia to only rip
1282 the first 5 seconds of a track. This is very useful to those debugging
1283 cdgrab, makes things go much faster. This will also prevent me releasing
1284 another 0.7.2 :)
1285 * Now puts options last on the encoder command line if you are using
1286 bladeenc or l3enc, this should allow the proper use of these encoders
1287 with additional commandline options (thanks to Justin Hugh Daly for
1288 pointing this out)
1289 * m3u PLAYLIST SUPPORT! Check out the new -p and -P options!

1314 * CDDB handling revisited - cdgrab should now properly handle CD's with
1315 multiple or inexact CDDB entries.

991009a4 1321 * Parallelizes ripping and encoding - this may take substantially more disk
1322 space temporarily (up to 500MB or so depending on how fast your CPU is
1323 compared to your cdrom drive) but cdgrab will be done with your CD
1324 much more quickly.
1325 * Allows for SMP optimizations (multiple encoders running at once) with the
1326 new -j option
1327 * Output fix for TOC printing
1328 * cd-discid split off into it's own package
