EAC 0.95 Beta 1 Released...

Since EAC could already do disk-at-once recording, what would installing cdrdao do for me, exactly?

The Linux/KDE writing application K3B also optionally uses this program, but seems to work fine without it anyhow. I must be missing some wicked feature, no?

EAC's internal writing engine is not compatible with many drives. On the other hand cdrdao should work with most drives.

Hmm...I only extracted the new beta to the my previous pb5 folder, overwriting evrything, w/ CDRDAO, but I had no problems; the GUI showed up normally. 

I'm using WinXP Pro SP2, btw.

Does it still work after reboot? I had I working for a while, but after reboot, nothing helped but deleting CDRDAO folder....

It worked perfectly for me. I extracted it to a new folder, deleted all the
language files except for english, and it just worked, like
all software should.

No reboot, no nothing.

Also it loads in 11 seconds on my windows 98 machine,
whereas 0.95 preĆ” 5 loads in 38 seconds.

For a quick reference, EAC's cdrdao tooltip:
EAC is able to use it's own internal writing routines for burning, or it can call and external application called cdrdao.
The advantage of cdrdao lies in the better support of older and newer CD-R drives.
On the other hand, EAC's routines are internal, making them basically a little bit more stable.
In both cases write offset correction will be performed.

Still works.
And I didn't have to delete the other language files (which is prolly due to the repackaged Korean.txt).

But I'll try to check it up again; I haven't tried to rip anything w/ it since I only wanted to make sure it's running (read: starting) properly on my system.

Has anyone else noticed that EAC now puts GENRE, DATE, DISCID and COMMENT REM statements in the cuesheet?

I don't generally bother with GENRE or YEAR, although I probably should use YEAR - but I would have thought many people who backup to image files would be quite pleased with this.

See my cross post for an example.

That is quite a nice feature indeed, very useful for me. I could have saved a lot of time if this were already possible in EAC a few years ago.
