New command-line encoder for EAC

@goldenear and Matroska team :

I recovered mkaencoder 1.0.0 from the svn to make a compile for myself. Is it usable or not ??

Sure you can use, but the tags will not be fully spec compliant afterwards, as some tags will be changed in the new system ( though not the main tags AFAIK ).

About Goldenear, he is missing in Action since some time now ..... i guess he was caught by a woman in his vacation  ....

My impression from reading this thread has been that mkaencoder really isn't much more than an automation script that adds some non-standard and thus missing information like genre and date to the CUE sheet and then makes various calls to mkvtoolnix tools in order to construct the final MKA file. If this assumption is correct then I don't see why using mkaencoder 1.0 from the SVN would produce an MKA file that would not be fully spec compliant in terms of its tags provided that the 1.0 release of mkvtoolnix is used as mkvtoolnix 1.0 supposedly implements the final version of the tagging spec.

Could somebody in the know please confirm or deny this?

That's almost completely correct. The thing is, though, that Matroska technically allows free-style tags, but the specs say that only a handful are "official". Others should not be used. mkvmerge does not enforce the usage of official tags, so you can still screw up. The Matroska file will of course be perfectly valid, but the tags could be non-standard.
