in the "What are these CD ripping settings?" thread you wrote the following:

Unfortunately, the new cache management of cdparanoia III 10.2 is not available in fre:ac.
This is very unfortunate indeed.
Especially because in the following post on the cdparanioa mailing list:
a developer seems to write that he thinks that the new cache management of cdparanoia III 10.2 basically should be at least as good as EAC.
It would be very much appreciated if you would make this new cache management work in fre:ac and if you would make it very high priority on your to-do list ;).
To make use of it, the CDRip library would have to be extended to implement some callbacks required for the cache management to work.
Not sure if this is helping you, but in the following thread in post #32:
and post #33:
there seems to be some talk regarding the implementation of the new cdparanoia III 10.2 cache management in CDex (which, according to you, makes use of the CDRip library as well).
Actually, in post #33 it looks like the developer "xiphmont" basically explains how it could be implemented?
I will have a look at it again and see if I can implement those callbacks.
That would be very much appreciated :).
However, it might be a better option to just use libcdio and libcdio-paranoia instead of CDRip (those libraries are already used by fre:ac on Linux and NetBSD and should work on Windows as well).
What do you mean with that? Was this a suggestion to fre:ac users? Or was it just you, the developer, thinking aloud?
And if you would make fre:ac use "libcdio" and "libcdiao-paranoia" on Windows, would fre:ac then support the new cache management of cdparanoia III 10.2 :)? If yes, then that would be awesome :).
