Project Release Information
Many bugfixes were made. Several updates to match
the Linux kernel were made. When using an MMC
drive, cdparanoia now attempts to set the DAP bit
to request that CD-ROM drives should use hardware
interpolation to reconstruct over completely
destroyed samples. The cdparanoia tool is now
licensed under the GPLv3, the libraries under the
Kenwood TruX drives work faster. End-of-track read
problems on a number of drives have been
alleviated. There is a new -z command syntax with
an option argument to allow a skip after a
user-configurable number of tries. There are more
possible read commands to autoprobe. Support for
Linux SCSI Generic 3.x interface has been added,
and support for <= 2.0 kernels has been dropped.
Starting a new rip will not potentially stall in
autoprobe until the previous rip finishes. A
segfault that occurred when a device wasn't found
has been fixed. Proper /devfs detection in 2.2-2.4
(with or w/o devfsd) has been added.
Sample-granulairy offset is allowed.
cdparanoia reads audio from the CDROM directly as data, with no analog step between, and writes the data to a file or pipe in WAV, AIFC or raw 16 bit linear PCM. Cdparanoia will read correct, rock-solid audio data from inexpensive drives prone to misalignment, frame jitter and loss of streaming during atomic reads. cdparanoia will also read and repair data from CDs that have been damaged in some way.(This Description is auto-translated)
