I have always held back on this kind of sub offset detection as it greatly increases the chances of collisions, hence the design for AR2. (for example if 2000 offsets are tested then the 1:4 billion collision is 1:4 billion / 2000). If the offset is kept constant across all tracks (ie only done once all tracks are ripped then there is less chances of collision).
For use as a ripper, I'd like an option for it to automagically query its databases for metadata, rather than having to be told to go look.Also as a ripper feature, creating a directory for the tracks would be a great help.I realise in making these suggestions that XLD was first intended as a file converter, and it's only grown into being a ripper.
It would not be possible to submit to AR without the use of AccurateRip.dll, there are many 'attacks' on the database where rouge data is submitted (sometimes even doc files mangled into AR results), deliberate attempts to pollute the database, so we will not be opening up the submission details.

Not sure what you mean.Sorry for lack of clarity. I meant what I think is a point on your original list, I now see:"Logical output folder creation based on searched metadata. Example main folder=Artist, sub folder 1=Album, sub folder 2=codec type"So I'm sorry for redundancy, too.
Version 20080912: • Automatic album art downloading feature now can be disabled from CDDB menu • Added option to modify a size of padding section in FLAC encoder • Added save button in Log window • Modified log format to show not only relative values but also absolute values for a real-time offset checking result • Absolute values can be used for the drive offset, and relative values can be used for fixing offset of existing files. • A real-time offset checking feature now can be used for the first and the last track • Note that detection will fail if the first or last 5 sectors contain non-zero samples.Version 20080911: • Fixed a problem of ALAC decoding with QuickTime 7.5.5Version 20080910: • Fixed a problem for reading an enhanced CD (CD-extra)Version 20080909: • Fixed an endian-swapping issue on some environments and CDsVersion 20080908: • Implemented a feature to check offset in the ripping stage • Now XLD performs a real-time offset checking while ripping, when the CD is available in AccurateRip DB. The result is written in the log if found. Note that this feature is not available for the first and the last track.Version 20080907a: • Improved performance of offset detection • Supported displaying all candidates for the offset correction valueVersion 20080907: • Added feature to fix a wrong offset of the existing files using AccurateRip database • You can detect and fix an offset from "Detect Offset" and "Save with Offset Correction..." in File menu, after opening a file (with cuesheet) that you want to fix. • Separated drift errors from skip errors in cdparanoia statistics • Added option to treat AccurateRip mismatch as an inconsistency in log • Modified loading method of Sparkle.framework to support OSX 10.3Version 20080906: • Sorted character encoding pop-up menu by alphabetical orderVersion 20080905: • XLD now shows "[AR]" string in the titlebar of the window when a disc is available in AccurateRip DBVersion 20080904: • Added option to avoid testing when the track exists in AccurrateRip DB • Supported creating a cue sheet for separated track files • You can choose type in the save dialog. Note that currently XLD can't read this type of cue sheet.Version 20080902: • Fixed a problem in ALAC decoderVersion 20080830: • Added option to test before copyVersion 20080829: • Added option to veryfy suspicious sectorsVersion 20080828: • Added option to save a log file automatically • Improved progress view to show a speed and remaining timeVersion 20080827: • XLD now automatically recognizes inserted/ejected CD • Supported embedding album art in WavPack encoder • Fixed to ask output directory if the default directory is not writableVersion 20080826: • Fixed to report correctly in case AccurateRip doesn't have informations for all tracksVersion 20080825: • Fixed several bugs in cdparanoia routine according to the latest release • Fixed UTF-8 NFD issue when looking up Gracenote database • Fixed MusicBrainz query failure on PPC MacVersion 20080824: • Fixed a problem that XLD sometimes failed to find a CD in AccurateRip databaseVersion 20080823: • Added feature to calculate an AccurateRip hash for the existing files • Choose "Check file with AccurateRip" from the File menu. • Fixed again an AccurateRip hash calculation for the first track • Sorry for confusion... I hope this will be the solution...Version 20080822a: • Fixed an AccurateRip hash calculation for the first track with pregapVersion 20080822: • Fixed an AccurateRip hash calculation for the first and last track • Improved tag editor • Supported automatic update using Sparkle
• Added option to modify a size of padding section in FLAC encoder
Quote10.2 also includes a cache analysis option (-A) to do a slow and thorough offline check of the drive's cache behavior. The feature also dumps a detailed log to assist in debugging should either the test or cdparanoia's ripping go awry in any way. After all... better thoroughly safe than sorry.I wonder if the cache analysis option can be made to run on OS X? This would be a quite useful setup feature for XLD, to say the least.I did just download the cdparanoia 10.2 src. I will see if the -A option will work from the command line.

These are two features I already talked with tmkk, and he already said will be implemented as soon as other more important ones are done. I'm only posting them here so that more people can keep track of them:1. Add option to automatically save a M3U file, for the folks who need them.2. Add option to "Always ask" in the Output Directory preferences...
XLD will surpass EAC eventually and hopefully gets ported to Windows soon.
It is *highly desirable* that XLD incorporate the (-A) option!

Anyway Pepzhez, XLD is clearly a dead project as there hasn't been an update for at least 5 hours.
