22 abcde 2.1.16
23
24 * New setting for the CD speed. Some drives have a higher failure ratio when
25 spinning at high speed.
26 * Added a pre-read function for preparations. Uses include closing the CD
27 tray (Closes: #137548).
28 * Added COMMENT part in OggFlac metadata.
29 * Documentation update: README, abcde.1
30 * Do not tag GENRE and DATE in Ogg/Vorbis if CDDB does not provide them
31 (Closes: #235531).
32 * Solved bug with batch encoding, thanks to Travis McKay.
33 * When *DATAPREFIX was set, the playlist creation was made without newline.
34 * Added >&2 redirection to visualize the "Erase playlist" question
35 (Closes: #241221).
36 * Added the option "-m" to modify the resulting playlist, to contain CRLF at
37 the end of every line, letting some hardware players which insist with
38 DOS-style files to use them. Also, added DOSPLAYLIST as a config option.
39 * When using a selected, localy cached CDDB entry, we forgot to show the
40 selection when asking the user for editing the choice. Now we show it.
41 * Improved the logic in the order of events when using a local CDDB repo.

45 abcde 2.1.15
46
47 * EDITOR is called now evaluating the variable, so it works with full path
48 and arguments.
49 * Patch for making md5sum a variable (since some systems use a different
50 name).
51 * Correction by "huf" <mihi at mail.eol.hu>. The test code in line 376
52 needed some quotes.
53 * The PADDING code and some CDDB funcions were *really* messy. Now it looks
54 cleaner, works faster and some not needed network operations are no
55 longer performed when we are working with local CDDB repositories.
56 * Added "-V" for extra verbosity (on slow networks the user might be waiting
57 and wondering is somethins is happening).
58 * Solved a bug with the non-interactive code.

69
70 * Solved the problem with re-runs of multiple choices not showing all the
71 choices (Closes: #228405) (this was a quick one)
72 * We now show the selected CDDB entry on a second run, instead of all of
73 them (not that one should stop abcde, but just in case). This way
74 consecutive interrupted runs obtain the same results.

79
80 * Check if normalizer is found in the PATH (Closes: #228014)
81 * Added (commented) bits to check if the CD being processed is the CD on the
82 tray, so that if differs we do not eject it.
83 * Store locally the CDDB information, under $HOME/.cddb since it is being
84 used by Grip (at least). PATH is user defined (Closes: #88048)
85 * If you are using cdda2wav and SCSI drives, you can set CDROMID for the
86 SCSI drive, since it differs from the cd-discid CDROM parameter
87 (Closes: #121987).
88 * MacOSX keeps on failing because the OS mounts the CD before we finish
89 ripping it... or something else. Please, test test test the code, and
90 report your findings. Pretty please. I have not been able to make it work
91 with the reports I have received.

95 abcde 2.1.11
96
97 * Urgent fixes for the FreeBSD and MacOSX bits. When using cdda2wav, the
98 CDROM variable must be modified depending on the device interface. By now
99 we will not try to be very smart.
100 * Added a test for HTTPGETOPTS since it cannot be empty for the default
101 HTTPGET options.
102 * Quick release to fix a problem with the CDROM detection code.
103 (Closes: #226647)
104 * Cleaned a bashism. Thanks to Klaus Ethgen (Closes: #226782).
105 * Rewrote some parts of the cdda2wav code. Since I do not have a machine
106 where cdda2wav works, I cannot test the code. The modifications have been
107 done following user reports. If you use cdda2wav and abcde does not work
108 for you, please, contact me and we will try to sort things out. Thanks.

113
114 * INLINETAG and STARTTRACKNUMBER flags added.
115 * CDROM checking is now done with a bit more wiselly (Closes: #219768)
116 * HTTPGET is only requested is "cddb" action is performed.
117 * Workout the possibility of cdparanoia erasing our wav files
118 (Closes: #172694)
119 * The default answer for editing CDDB data is now "y" if the disk is
120 unknown. If not, the default is "n". Requested by Ricky Buchanan.
121 * Now we do not erase silently any previous $PLAYLISTFILE left behind by a
122 previous CD ripping (Closes: #220753)
123 * Write info file with cdda2wav (Closes: #187702).
124 I do not use cdda2wav myself (me is cd-paranoid) so if anyone using
125 cdda2wav has a problem with this, please, report.
126 * CDROM comes in 1,0,0 kind of format for cdda2wav ripper. Corrected with a
127 quick patch. Kudos go to Mikhail Manuilov <viper5k at pisem dot net> for
128 noticing.
129 * Merged bits to make abcde work under MacOSX. Thanks to Evan Jones.
130 * Merged bits to avoid FreeDB people anger and to cut down the "abcde." part
131 of the discid. Now you can set the "-C" command with the directory name.
132 Kudos go to Bart Samwel.
133 * Added some info bits to the config file about normalize, requested by
134 Ricky Buchanan.
135 * Added some testing for the wav file before normalizing, to check that the
136 file is actually there.

181 * If nothing breaks, 2.2 will be released as soon as the KNOWNBUG is solved.
182 * Removed all the inline tagging since it breaks the action chain, except
183 in Ogg/Speex. Need to check if "vorbiscomment" can be used for it.
184 (Closes: #206311)

192 + GENRE can be used for OUTPUTFORMAT and PLAYLISTFORMAT
193 + id3v2 should work now with -c for comments (Closes: #199949)
194 + small bug with batch encoding
195 + Variables are exported before the CDDB functions are called, so they
196 should use the right variables for the HTTPGET command.
197 + Tagging also use TRACKS and CDGENRE for MP3 files (kudos to Dirk
198 Ruediger)
199 + FLAC encoding now uses dismp3 to encode remotelly (kudos to Taylor and
200 Kevin Cramer). HANDLE WITH CARE ;)
201 Also FLAC now uses CDGENRE and CDYEAR for tagging.
202 * tail/head change: -1 has been deprecated. Noted by Stephan Kulow.
203 * Ogg/Speex support added, for speech encoding (Closes #204635)

222 * Makefile was missing cddb-tool.1.
223 * Introduced dagrab as CD ripping utility.
224 * cddb-tool seq calls converted to functions. No more distro dependencies.
225 * WGET* variables converted to HTTPGET* variables. FreeBSD can safelly use
226 fetch.
227 * More FreeBSD specific bits: CDROM and EJECT changes.
228 * Typo in abcde.conf
229 * Added CDDBPROTO for specifying the protocol level of the cddb query.
230 * CDDB protocol upgraded to 5. CDYEAR and CDGENRE are now used for CD
231 tagging.
232 * COMMENT is now used for inline tagging with oggenc (my mistake it was

237 abcde 2.1.2
238
239 * Documentation updates: Closes: #186230.
240 * Usual set of bug fixes and corrections.
241 * Default behaviour of VAOUTPUTFORMAT output changed to avoid multiple
242 directories for a same album. I think the format is more logical, and you
243 can always split the files once they are created.
244 * Padding track wavs with 0 so if you want to burn those wavs just cdrecord
245 *.wav will do it. Use "-p" to force it when encoding a small (<9) number
246 of files (Closes: #111627).
247 * Added "KEEPWAVS" as a variable to keep those wavs. Default is "no". Can
248 use also "-k" in the command line. (Closes: #160372).
249 This probably should be changed with an option to move the wav files to
250 another directory instead of just keep de abcde.<cdid> directory.
251 * Added documentation comments about OUTPUTTYPE (Closes: #184963).
252 * abcde.conf cleanup: (Closes: #186230, #187400).

473 * The "Very Long Changelog Entries Can Become Addicting" Release.
474 * Switched default output type to ogg, default encoder to oggenc

476 for non-interactivity.
477 * Handles cddb entries with random sprinklings of CR's and LF's
478 * You can now specify niceness for the reader and encoders, thanks to

486 * Fleshed out the TODO list a bit more
487 * mungefilename() now translates ':' to ' -' by default. Rationale: You

514 it is now 'cddb-tool query' and 'cddb-tool read'.
515 * Removed -e, -v, and -V, since abcde will now prompt you if you want to
516 edit or otherwise muck with the data after you have a chance to see it.

650 abcde 0.8.4
651
652 * New name. A Better CD Encoder. cdgrab was already taken - the original
653 cdgrab name belongs to a CDDA reading program for DOS dating back to
654 1993. It's still in use and active development, so I'm changing the
655 name of cdgrab instead. See this URL for a description of the original
656 cdgrab: http://www.scn.rain.com/pub/cdrom/cdgrab.txt
657
658 Your old /etc/cdgrab.conf and/or ~/.cdgrab.conf can simply be
659 renamed to /etc/abcde.conf and ~/.abcde.conf.

661 The program name is now 'abcde'.

690 specificed explicitly, cdgrab would loop forever after the first track
691 * Now uses Debian's sensible-editor wrapper if available
692 * Merged in patches from Nathaniel J Smith that puts cddb lookup
693 functionality in a separate script, cddb-tool
694 * Adds WAVOUTPUTDIR environment variable for those running out of space in
695 OUTPUTDIR.

713 cdgrab 0.7.5
714
715 * Quick bugfix release - with any luck I can start on 0.8 soon :)
716 * **** YOU WILL NEED TO EDIT CDGRAB.CONF **** if you use lame as
717 /usr/bin/lamer. The default program name is now 'lame' as of lame v3.0.
718 If you don't want to touch your lame installation, put the following in
719 your cdgrab.conf: "LAME=lamer"
720 * Omits -w from cdparanoia commands
721 * Depends on cdparanoia-bin or cdparanoia now - this accomodates the recent
722 cdparanoia package namechange.
723 * Fixed a stealth-whitespace typo at line 495. Thanks go to Gregory T.
724 Norris for tracking this down.

728 cdgrab 0.7.4
729
730 * Now only uses the first match from a CDDB datafile for the track
731 information, this works around a cddb glitch some of you may have
732 hit last month
733 * Default config file now gets version number from program.
734 * added 'debug' option to CDROMREADERSYNTAX to get cdparanoia to only rip
735 the first 5 seconds of a track. This is very useful to those debugging
736 cdgrab, makes things go much faster. This will also prevent me releasing
737 another 0.7.2 :)
738 * Now puts options last on the encoder command line if you are using
739 bladeenc or l3enc, this should allow the proper use of these encoders
740 with additional commandline options (thanks to Justin Hugh Daly for
741 pointing this out)

768 multiple or inexact CDDB entries.

772 cdgrab 0.7
773
774 * Parallelizes ripping and encoding - this may take substantially more disk
775 space temporarily (up to 500MB or so depending on how fast your CPU is
776 compared to your cdrom drive) but cdgrab will be done with your CD
777 much more quickly.
778 * Allows for SMP optimizations (multiple encoders running at once) with the
779 new -j option
780 * Output fix for TOC printing
