PROJECTS - CDR Tools Front End

CDR Tools Front End

History

Version 1.5 dev (released 20.12.2004)
  • Added new feature to decode .ogg and .mp3 files when burning audio and mixed mode CDs
    Ogg/Vorbis decoding is done using oggdec
    MP3 decoding is done using madplay
  • Added play with your audio player button to the "select audio files" dialog
  • Added customized version of audio selection dialog when you can play file before confirm your selection
  • Changed settings dialog
  • Added a new option "Shut down when ready"
  • Added optional tray icon to show you when CDR Tools are working

  • Added directory handler. Right click on a directory in Windows Explorer and select "Burn/Create ISO with CDR Tools"
  • Changed the way text is displayed in the Output console
  • Added a timer in console caption to show the operation time

Version 1.4 beta (released 27.06.2004)
  • Language functionality is back again. Please send me your translations!
  • Added default write method Track At Once (TAO). It was default in the previous CDR Tools versions, but now it should be explicitly specified using the command line. This might become a problem for those who use -rawXXX method in the custom options. Please send me your feedback.
  • Help file is back (updated)
  • Installer now comes with CDR Tools version 2.01a32
  • Changed some options to appear with alternative names because they are reserved by POSIX.1-2001 for other purposes. This might lead to some options not working correctly if my front end is used with CDR Tools version prior 2.01a32
Version 1.4 dev 3 (released 01.03.2004)
  • Added "Import file list" button for Audio file list selection dialog. You can use it to import a text file contents into the list. Supported formats are path-list (generated from Visual ISO) and plain text "one line one file name" format. Note that the list is cleared before importing!
  • Added "Allow only 16 characters in volume name" option in settings dialog.
  • Improved user interface, now "Multisession options" button displays the current selection
  • Improved installer. Now it can use the front end to scan for available CD drives and can try to download and install an ASPI layer for you in case of an error.
  • More minor user interface tweaks
  • Fixed a bug in Visual ISO resulting in not displaying the proper progress bar value and incorrect total size while loading a file which is blocked by another application

  • Improved "Record CD on the fly" option which creates ISO and CD in one step. You should try it! I'm using it almost all the time :) Just remember to set bigger FIFO size in "cdrecord options" dialog. Something between 8 and 64 Mb should do the job.
