Burn 0.3.5 released

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.

CDPlayer 0.4.0 released

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.

Protocols for external tools will change

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.
