g++ 4.0??? wtf??

Haha! so yeah.. the old version of ncdplay doesn't appear to compile under the g++ 4.0 standard.. apparently lose precision is a fatal error with g++ 4.0 wtf??? Anyway.. this is the reason I am rewriting ncdplay too.. is for this reason as well.. the old code was just a giant hack..

ncdplay reborn.

Ncdplay is still in production, while it may still not have a stable release, in fact all of the current code is about to be ditched, and I'm going to be starting over again (using C++ still).. The code is going to be made using doxygen style comments so that the code is documented, and when I come back to it down the line, I wont want to pull my hair out and be like "forget this.. I'm starting over." So that one day ncdplay will have a stable release..... read more

The latest (for the most part) code is available in the svn repository. Mind you there is still a lot of code that is needed, and the program it self still has ways more testing to go before considered a rock solid 1.0 release, but the good news is, there should be a new release coming out soon.

Well, incase you all didn't notice I uploaded v0.1a, This release isn't quite really there. There is still much to do, like Shuffle / Rewinding/Fast Forwarding, and a few other basic things that I want out of ncdplay...

But, to what this news really is.. I was going to work on 0.1b today, opened it up, and realized something insane.. the code is nuts. :< Anywho, it'll be a while before 0.1b is released. :>
