37 [ Steve McIntyre ]
38 * Several patches for improved Musicbrainz support from Martin Michlmayr:
39 + add musicbrainz support for FLAC files with embedded cue files.
40 Closes: #669139
41 + Don't submit to CDDB server when using musicbrainz
42 Closes: #669140
43 + Don't tag CDDB string with musicbrainz id
44 Closes: #669141
45 * Fix speex tagging. (Closes issue 19).
46 Thanks to vskytta for the patch.
47 * Fix aac tagging. (Closes issue 7).
48 Thanks to Andrew Strong for forwarding the patch.
49 * Add ATOMICPARSLEY=AtomicParsley (Closes issue 37).
50 * On OS X, switch from disktool to diskutil. (Closes issue 43).
51 * Updates for CD device detection:
52 + Look for /dev/sr0, in case /dev/cdrom doesn't exist.
53 (Closes issue 52).

55 (Closes issue 45).
56 * Check that we have $CDDBTOOL before we start. (Closes issue 27).
57 * Change the meaning of EXTRAVERBOSE; previously, it was a y/n option
58 to make things more verbose. Add extra levels of verbosity (0, 1, 2 so
59 far) and a new vvecho() function for callers to use.
60 * With EXTRAVERBOSE==2 or more, make run_command() print out each
61 command as it's run. (Closes issue 39).

63 to extract CD-Text information to populate the cddbinfo template.
64 (Closes issue 41).
65 * Try to give more helpful error messages when we can't parse the
66 command line, and exit rather than carry on. (Closes issue 51).

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

193 abcde 2.3.99.6
194
195 * Default to UNICODE (UTF8) tags and comments (Closes: #282332).
196 - Added CDDBPROTO option in config file (Closes: #349951)
197 * Added a missing "INDEX 01" entry for CUE sheet creation.
198 * Avoid completing the encoding of files if we aborted previously.
199 * Embed the CUE sheet if we have a cuesheet file and we have a single FLAC
200 file, even if we are not tagging. This way we can use the file as a source
201 even if it is not tagged/named properly.
202 * Fails to quote filenames properly (Closes: #355296)
203 * Introduced VA/ONETRACKOUTPUTFORMAT.
204 * Added a missing check for AACENCODER.
205 * Updated config file with some new AAC bits.
206 * Updated FSF address.
207 * Corrected NetBSD options for ftp (Thanks to Marius).
208 * The final 2.4 will have "cuefile" as an action instead of as a flag.
209 * Create the cuefile when extracting from a FLAC file.
210 * Small bugs (Charles Steinkuehler):
211 - Added missing quotes (Closes: #375710)
212 - toolame is included in Debian as default MP3 encoder
213 - Use IFS to preserve spaces when adding metadata to a cuefile
214 * Small documentation changes:
215 - abcde.1 (Closes: #364978)
216 * The following entries have in common that both add an internal cue2discid
217 function. I will evaluate which one is more accurate and decide which one
218 to use. Right now they are not conflicting:
219 - Added internal mkcue and cue2discid functions (Charles Steinkuehler) and
220 add a check for internal abcde.<function> to make sure we are using the
221 correct version (not sure if needed ;)
222 - Added an internal implementation of cue2discid, so there is no need for
223 an external program to do the conversion. Thanks to Michael (sorry, his
224 mail does not have a surname).
225 * cue2discid is now an internal function, so no need for including the
226 python script in the path (Closes: #378407)
227 * cddb-tool.1 typo (Thanks to A. Costa) (Closes: #351775)
228 * abcde.1 typo (Thanks to David L. Anselmi) (Closes: #364978)
229 * Set proper nice values to not separate encoding and reading in the pipes
230 situation, while having a high priority process running in the system.
231 Also, set proper nice values to tagging tasks. Reading should remain as
232 the default higher priority task in the abcde flow (Closes: #359156)
233 * Standards bumped to 3.7.2.1, no changes needed.

245
246 * Repaired multiple output encoding (Closes: #351362).
247 * Added missing space on a [] test statement.
248 * Added "default" action, so that one can add things on top of what we do
249 regularly, without having to list everything: "-a default,playlist" works.
250 * Restored all the > /dev/null instead of using grep -q, since it is not
251 portable.
252 * Added Solaris OS entry, in case we need to define things for it.

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

280
281 * Missing bits in the 2.3.99.1 changelog:
282 - Man page: added information about -z (Debug option).
283 - Corrected config file with the BATCHNORM/NOGAP split
284 (Closes: #337622).
285 - Uses /bin/bash for the time being... We need to get some substitution
286 functions/operations for the bashisms we have: Closes: #337139.
287 * Config bits with corrected typos
288 * Adding musicbrainz support. First bits.
289 * Reworked comparison for numerical answer when selecting a CDDB output.
290 * TODO updated

294 abcde 2.3.99.1
295
296 * Both -z and -C unset EJECTCD to avoid ejecting the CD when a) we are
297 debuging and b) we are not using the CD.
298 * If we are not reading the CD, set "loud" to see all the output messages
299 (that is, in most of the cases, the first encoding).
300 * Added -f to force some events that otherwise would erase files from our
301 current run. In the standard configuration ("OUTPUT=vorbis") the following
302 actions will need a "-f" to force the last one:
303 abcde -a read,encode -o ogg,flac
304 abcde -a tag,move,clean
305 During the second run abcde should complain that it is trying to erase the
306 working directory while the it has not performed any action on the FLAC
307 files, which we encoded previously.
308 * Convert the old cdparanoia-audio-tracks file into a status entry to avoid
309 eating files from previous rounds using an early version (Closes: #341050)

314
315 * Added diff choice to CDDB entries ("1,4").
316 * Added SHOWCDDBFIELDS to allow the user to show YEAR and GENRE in the
317 parsed CDDB output.
318 * Suggests mkcue, and erase old cdgrab info since sarge is out.
319 * Changed cdparanoia-audio-tracks to use the status file to save the data.
320 * Added the possibility of using a singletrack flac file with an embeded
321 cuesheet as a source of tracks.
322 * Added -z for easy and quick debug.
323 * BATCH has been split into two options: BATCHNORM which allows, by using
324 -b, to use the -a normalize in all the files at once, and NOGAP, that by
325 using -g, introduces the lame's --nogap extension.
326 * Added replygain using the appropiate tags with Ogg/Vorbis and Ogg/FLAC.
327 * Replaygain is an action, not a flag, since it can be performed individualy
328 in the chain of events.
329 * debian/{rules,control}:
330 - Changed the target directory from tmp to abcde, to accomodate to compat
331 mode 4.
332 - Bump standards to 3.6.2.1. No changes needed.
333 * Added "decho" as a DEBUG output for some specific debug variables.
334 * Added USEPIPES file, with information about how to add Unix pipes support.
335 * Added one more checking for PIPES*_* unset variables (which means support
336 is not added to abcde).
337 * Added toolame as an optional MP3 encoder.

346 - NetBSD bits to use ftp instead on anything else to fetch stuff.

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

434 * Options passed to the encoder by using <-o ogg:"-b 192"> are now
435 supported. One can modify the way abcde encodes just for the current CD.
436 * Unfortunatelly I forgot to add the starting number for tags in Ogg. For
437 MP3 is a bit more difficult, since it needs changing the X/YY code.
438 * Also, the order of the tags in metaflac is important for the utf8 names.
439 Thanks to Frederik Juul Christiani (Closes: #297482)
440 * Added CDROMID in the .conf file, for reader programs that need it
441 (Closes: #297005)
442 * Added a check for cdparanoia when encountering data-only CDs.

469 abcde 2.2.0
470
471 * New release! Let's see if abcde 2.2 gets into Sarge.
472 * Added support for MPP/MP+(Musepack) encoding. Although I am trying to
473 get 2.2 for Debian Sarge release, mpc seems safe enough to introduce. See
474 corecodec.org for code.
475 * Some POSIX shell corrections (making the code more portable). Thanks to
476 Guillem Jover for pointing the problem out.
477 * CDYEAR is also passed to do_move(), so one can use it for sorting the
478 directories.
479 * Small MacOS X fix, allowing directories with "()" to work. Thanks to Evan
480 Jones.
481 - On the MacOS X, I still do not know if abcde works correctly. If does
482 not, please, drop a note. Or else.
483 * DOSPLAYLIST also changes "/" with "\".
484 * DATA tracks are now excluded from the ripping process using internally
485 the cdparanoia "-Q" query option. If using another ripper, it does not
486 work (at least there is no support for them in abcde)
487 (Closes: #112692, #117412).
488 * New "0" choice for "None of the above" has been introduced. If selected, a
489 template is created and the user encouraged to edit it (Closes: #147683).
490 * New options for when the PLAYLIST already exists: erase, append or keep.
491 * Bug fixes along the code:
492 - abcde.1 corrections and additions
493 - abcde corrections and code reorganization. abcde now exits earlier if
494 some of the options are incompatible. Also the actions are set as
495 variables earlier, so we use less calls to external tools.
496 - abcde.conf additions
497 * The GENRE is munged now in its own mungegenre function, so that no more
498 upper-to-lowercase is done (forced) except if the default is used.
499 * Examples added to the tarball and /usr/share/doc/abcde/examples with two
500 scripts to make abcde kind-of-a ripper daemon.
501 * Changed to experimental to have an stable 2.1.x version in Sarge.
502 * Add CDDB information to Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files (Closes: #265358).
503 * Added INTERACTIVE option. Set it to "n" and there you go, without user
504 interaction.
505 * Changes normalize to normalize-audio (Closes: #267053)
506 * Copes with wav files being erased by the ripping tool.
507 * Small patch to support ()'s in the path under MacOSX. Thanks to Evan Jones
508 for noticing and sending the patch.
509 * Added -w for COMMENT seed. Used to give a comment to a given CD.
510 * Option "-t <number>" added to modify the numbering from a starting point
511 (Closes: #95828). Geez! That is low bug number...
512 * Added -T to modify also the tag entries on the songs. Currently available
513 for FLAC and Ogg/Vorbis.
514 * Removes trailing spaces (Closes: #280382).
515 * TRACKNAME now combines multi-lines from long CDDB entries.
516 * debian/rules:
517 - s/dh_installmanpages/dh_installman/

565 * Documentation update: README, abcde.1
566 * Do not tag GENRE and DATE in Ogg/Vorbis if CDDB does not provide them
567 (Closes: #235531).
568 * Solved bug with batch encoding, thanks to Travis McKay.
569 * When *DATAPREFIX was set, the playlist creation was made without newline.
570 * Added >&2 redirection to visualize the "Erase playlist" question
571 (Closes: #241221).
572 * Added the option "-m" to modify the resulting playlist, to contain CRLF at
573 the end of every line, letting some hardware players which insist with
574 DOS-style files to use them. Also, added DOSPLAYLIST as a config option.
575 * When using a selected, localy cached CDDB entry, we forgot to show the
576 selection when asking the user for editing the choice. Now we show it.
577 * Improved the logic in the order of events when using a local CDDB repo.

587 * Correction by "huf" <mihi at mail.eol.hu>. The test code in line 376
588 needed some quotes.
589 * The PADDING code and some CDDB funcions were *really* messy. Now it looks
590 cleaner, works faster and some not needed network operations are no
591 longer performed when we are working with local CDDB repositories.
592 * Added "-V" for extra verbosity (on slow networks the user might be waiting

619 * Store locally the CDDB information, under $HOME/.cddb since it is being
620 used by Grip (at least). PATH is user defined (Closes: #88048)
621 * If you are using cdda2wav and SCSI drives, you can set CDROMID for the
622 SCSI drive, since it differs from the cd-discid CDROM parameter
623 (Closes: #121987).

779 can always split the files once they are created.
780 * Padding track wavs with 0 so if you want to burn those wavs just cdrecord
781 *.wav will do it. Use "-p" to force it when encoding a small (<9) number
782 of files (Closes: #111627).

784 use also "-k" in the command line. (Closes: #160372).

1187
1188 * New name. A Better CD Encoder. cdgrab was already taken - the original
1189 cdgrab name belongs to a CDDA reading program for DOS dating back to
1190 1993. It's still in use and active development, so I'm changing the
1191 name of cdgrab instead. See this URL for a description of the original
1192 cdgrab: http://www.scn.rain.com/pub/cdrom/cdgrab.txt
1193
1194 Your old /etc/cdgrab.conf and/or ~/.cdgrab.conf can simply be

1226 specificed explicitly, cdgrab would loop forever after the first track
1227 * Now uses Debian's sensible-editor wrapper if available
1228 * Merged in patches from Nathaniel J Smith that puts cddb lookup
1229 functionality in a separate script, cddb-tool

1251 * Quick bugfix release - with any luck I can start on 0.8 soon :)
1252 * **** YOU WILL NEED TO EDIT CDGRAB.CONF **** if you use lame as
1253 /usr/bin/lamer. The default program name is now 'lame' as of lame v3.0.
1254 If you don't want to touch your lame installation, put the following in
1255 your cdgrab.conf: "LAME=lamer"
1256 * Omits -w from cdparanoia commands
1257 * Depends on cdparanoia-bin or cdparanoia now - this accomodates the recent
1258 cdparanoia package namechange.

1264 cdgrab 0.7.4

1266 * Now only uses the first match from a CDDB datafile for the track
1267 information, this works around a cddb glitch some of you may have
1268 hit last month
1269 * Default config file now gets version number from program.
1270 * added 'debug' option to CDROMREADERSYNTAX to get cdparanoia to only rip
1271 the first 5 seconds of a track. This is very useful to those debugging
1272 cdgrab, makes things go much faster. This will also prevent me releasing
1273 another 0.7.2 :)
1274 * Now puts options last on the encoder command line if you are using
1275 bladeenc or l3enc, this should allow the proper use of these encoders
1276 with additional commandline options (thanks to Justin Hugh Daly for
1277 pointing this out)

1309
1310 * Parallelizes ripping and encoding - this may take substantially more disk
1311 space temporarily (up to 500MB or so depending on how fast your CPU is
1312 compared to your cdrom drive) but cdgrab will be done with your CD
1313 much more quickly.
1314 * Allows for SMP optimizations (multiple encoders running at once) with the
