ripperX 2.7.1 released; 2.7.2 forthcoming

2.7.1 has been released, but the distribution tarball requires a few tweaks. Building 2.7.1 from the release tarball will compile against GTK2, and the new build system should clear up the issues Slackware users were having with libraries, but it will not include the latest internationalization translations. For those either use SVN, or look for 2.7.2 in the near future.

2.6.6 patch release

Finally, I have local access to a Fedora Core 3 system with a CDROM device, and have been able to do some testing on that system. This patch release should address at least some of the problems with different cdparanoia on Fedora.

Also, I'm including an RPM. The .spec file is inside the source tarball if you'd like to build your own.
