I'm eagerly awaiting the next EAC release as many others & because it has been so long I would to ask a few questions. Please tell me as much as you can, these are some questions I have please be as detail as possible,a) What improvements/bug fixes have you done so far (for the next release)?b) What improvements/bug fixes do you plan on doing?If not answered,c) Will the error detection/correction algorithm be improved?d) (How)/Will compression options be improved?e) (How)/Will the CD-Writer be improved?f) Will we see extended .m3u playlists?g) Will freedb access be improved?h) Will CUE sheets be improved?a) LAME.DLL support of alt-presets, 52x burn support, removed some tools for TOC recovering, new native interface (also Firewire/USB devices), sample rate conversion (from 44.1 kHz) on compression (e.g. to 22050, mono, 8 bit) is now using EACs internal sample rate converter, smaller fixes b) Plextools like cache defeating (as command line option), bugfix for command line option "-extract" (will be "-extractwav" and work), Accurate Rip and a surprise feature (nothing big though), smaller fixes c) Not for the next versions... d) I had planned OggDLL support, but it seems quite big. Perhaps I do FLAC DLL support before that. e) I don't know. I planned to use an external writer to be called by EAC, but I didn't find a good command line tool for DAO (CDRecord and DAO are not doing what I need), perhaps I can use the Pinnacle SDK somehow... f) As soon I get hand on some (half) official documentation of the extendend playlists... g) What do you need? h) What do you need? cu, Andre
before we or other people rush on with our endless requests about support for whatever format, we should remember what Andre does best: understanding the innards of audio extraction and error correction.
e) Support for newest cdrw-recorders if possible and implementing the memory cache for cd-rw recording (like in nero or alcohol) if possible.
Thinking out loud, perhaps Andre would be best to prise the hidden 'SCSI ignore extra sessions' command that the Plextors need to rip copy protected discs from Plextor, yet the only program that can do that is Plextools and they are not saying how.

If EAC were a naked ripping tool (incl. cue-sheet issues), i'd still love it.There are ecxellent encoding-, tagging- and burning-tools around.This is not an advice to the author, of course, but my feedback what i set value on.

Slightly OT: There seem to be some command line options for EAC, like -extractmp3. I read about one of them once in a while here or on EAC forum but I've never found a list of all available commandline options. Does anyone know where to find this?

he claims to have found a way to implement the method used by Plextools into EAC ... we will see whether this works out or not.
It should be possible to use the same method for Plextor drives (if you find out how). Of more interest is to also find a better way to flush or disable the read cache of other drives.
removed some tools for TOC recovering
PS- Does anyone know if it's possible to get EAC to create ~\<artist>\<album>\<nn><name>.mp3 format directories when it rips CDs?
