I released version 0.5 af CDPlayer.app. New and noteworthy:
- Added the service 'Play CD' that takes the name
of a device with an inserted CD to play.
- Added a local cache for CDDB data. All data
loaded from the net is stored automatically to
disk and displayed again when a CD is
- As an alternative to the preferences panel for
Preferences.app CDPlayer now also offers a
panel for SystemPreferences.app.
- Data tracks on a CD are now marked as such.
- When simply clicking the 'Play' button data
tracks should now be skipped.
This new backend bundle for Burn uses libburn/libisofs to create ISO images. It is meant to replace the MkIsoFs backend in the long run as the standard ISO creator for Burn.
Thanks to Jens Jahnke, we have new source RPMs available for Burn 0.4.1 and for CDPlayer 0.4.2.
Note ther the RPM for Burn also includes the cdrdao and mp3towav bundles.
Finally, Burn.app 0.4.0 has been released. You will find a source RPM and a source tar ball on this site. See CHANGELOG and README for details.
Thanks to Jens Jahnke there are now source RPMs of all three packages available. They have been built (and tested, hopefully ;-) on the Fedora distribution. If you encounter any problems, please report on the mailing list.
It has taken quite a while, but now the latest Burn (0.3.5) is out. It does not offer real new features, but instead the already existing ones have been augmented. Also the usability has improved a lot.
Burn has shrunk due to the fact that a lot of functionality has now gone to CDPlayer to concentrate Burn really to what it is meant for: burning CDs. Thus, you need the latest CDPlayer package, too.
Have fun. Feedback welcome.
Today, Sep 25 2003, CDPlayer version 0.4.0 has been released. Apart from Cddb/FreeDB support it brings no enhancements for enjoying your music CDs. This version is, however, necessary to use all features of the upcoming version 0.3.5 of Burn. This is because all audio CD related functions have been removed from Burn in favour of CDPlayer. Thus, if you want to backup your audio CDs using Burn you also need this version of CDPlayer.
Have fun. Feedback welcome.
This release fixes a couple of GUI issues. Lots of NSPopUpButtons were not enabled, the borders of some scroll views were not set properly and last, but not least the app would crash when editing track names in the description window.
On 02/07/03 version 0.3.0 of Burn.app (fka GSburn.app) has been released. Apart from a new name the program has undergone lots of changes. See change log for details.
As GSburn.app is now obsolete it has been hidden from the list of downloadable packages.
The preferences panel for the AudioCD settings has been updated to employ the new Gorm project layout. It also has been slightly reworked to fit into the latest preferences.app (1.2.99beta). Finally, there now exist locales for English, german and French.
The CVS tree of Burn.app can now be accessed using the alias Burn instead of the full repositiory name Burn.app, e.g.
cvs checkout Burn.
Today, a source tar ball of CDPlayer.app 0.2.5 has been added for direct download.
CDPlayer.app is necessary to install Burn.app as it provides access to audio CDs.
You may check out the preview of Burn.app 0.3.0 from CVS, now. It is tagged RELEASE_BURN_0_3_0_PRE. 0.3.0pre provides no new functionality, but gives you an impression of the changes in the UI. Any feedback is welcome.
Today version 0.2.2 has been released. This is a maintenance release containing several bug fixes. See CHANGELOG for details.
Version 0.2.1 is mainly a maintenance release, butalso brings some new features:
- Two services for adding files to an existing project and starting a new project.
- DnD for whole directories.
- Support for au files in cdrdao bundle.
Today, GSburn.app 0.2.0 was released. You can download it here or get the latest CVS.
- CDDB support
Yesterday, GSburn.app 0.2.0pre was released. You can download it here or get the latest CVS (which already has some changes in it).
People checkout the CVS TOT be aware that in the next few days there will be major changes in the protocols for the bundles (in particular rippers). This is due to the fact that we try to build a common framework for all related apps, such as Encod !
If anyone out there starts to write a new bundle, please keep this in mind.
