Release Notes: The package has been streamlined quite a bit. cdparanoia and lame are now bundled, and a great deal of the complexity related to supporting all of the other applications has been removed. There are some bugfixes as well, though there are still bugs lurking.
Release Notes: This update adds support for and bundles the 'dagrab' cd ripper, it puts the track number into id3 tags, and (most importantly, for dual-processor and cluster people) lets you specify the maximum number of encoders to run simultaneously.
Release Notes: Support for multiprocessing was added. cdr will now encode and rip in parallel. Support was added for editing all of the CDDB information before using it to name and tag the tracks. Some setup tweaks were made, and the documentation was updated to reflect all of the above changes.
Release Notes: This version adds support for a new mp3 encoder: 'lame' and higher encoding bitrates (all the way to 320 kbps now). It also integrates an id3 tagging utility that uses CDDB information to automatically tag your mp3's once they are encoded.
Release Notes: Version 2.0 tries to incorporate the large number of patches received from people, plus it now comes with all of the tools you'll need. It also includes a nice installation program. All users are encouraged to get this version, as it fixes many problems from the 1.1 release.
