 abcde      - A Better CD Encoder
Closes: 842180 852745 864006 892071
 abcde (2.9-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream version with various improvements and bugfixes:
     + Add some documentation for the aged CD ripper dagrab. Thanks to
       Teika Kazura for the notification and suggested documentation. This
       closes Issue 50:
     + Work by Matthias Andree <> to address the issue
       where abcde fails with accented characters from CD-TEXT. The issue and
       partial fix applied here documented in Issue 53:
       and also in the abcde mailing list:
     + Allow for embedding of  album art downloaded by the getalbumart function.
       Currently this is available for flac (using metaflac), mp3 (using eyed3),
       m4a (using AtomicParsley) and WavPack aka wv (using wvtag).
       This can be invoked in 3 ways:
       1. Use the commandline '-B' option (this will also call getalbumart)
       2. Use the commandline '-a embedalbumart' option to add to list of 
       3. Use 'embedalbumart' in the 'ACTIONS' list in ~/.abcde.conf
       Still needs more development but it is perfectly usable at the moment!
     + Use md5 rather than md5sum under macOS. Thanks to JCount for the bug
       report and also the fix. This solves Issue 59:
     + Support added for encoding with Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF).
       Thanks to Massimo Villa for the feature request. FFmpeg is required
       for the encoding, the container and suffix are 'aiff'.
     + Allow selection of either cddb or musicbrainz from the command line:
       -Q Select CDDBMETHOD from the command line. Choice is cddb or 
     + Command line letters are fast running out but the 'Q' option quite neatly
       stands for 'Query'!
     + Allow for embedding with do_embedalbumart() for single track encodes when
       OUTPUTFORMAT and ONETRACKOUTPUTFORMAT are different. Thanks to
          Ashley Gittins for the bug report. This closes Issue 63:
     + Experimental support for embedding albumart with ogg files. The slightly
       tortuous technique drawn from 2 sources:
       Testing is strongly encouraged, perhaps the simplest way to test is with:
          abcde -o ogg -B
        Or the appropriate settings in an ~/.abcde.conf file.
     + Massive rework of CD lookup code so support multiple sources
       better. Thanks to Gabriel Rosenkoetter for his initial idea in this
       area, and to Tomasz Goliński on irc for initial inspiration on how
       this should work better.
       There are now 3 different options for CD lookup: cddb, musicbrainz and
       cdtext. They can all be listed in a comma-separated list for
       CDDBMETHOD and the code will now call all of them in the sequence
       listed. All the results will be combined into one list at the end for
       the user to select, just like would have previously worked for one
       source only. Closes Issue 42:
          Closes: #842180
     + Fix Musicbrainz ID calculation in makeids()
       Apply fix suggested by; add PREGAP to
       LEADOUT to correct Musicbrainz ID calculation. Hopefully closes
       Issue 54:
          Closes: #892071
     + Fix abcde.mkcue() when handling the --wholedisk option. Thanks to
       Nino Burini for the patch. Closes Issue 47 and maybe also 45:
     + Add more comprehensive examples for filename munging in the example
       config file. Closes Issue 49:
     + Add a more better fix for the year lookup problem in
       Thanks to Tom Samstag for the patch. Closes Issue 57:
     + Redirect stderr on "which" calls to clear up error noise on some
       systems. Closes Issue 56:
     + Add Irix support, based on a patch by Closes Issue 29:
     + Rework abcde-musicbrainz-tool to work with WebService::MusicBrainz 1.x
       Thanks to Nicolas Guillaumin for the patch. Closes Issue 60:
       Also added a specific dependency on version 1.0.4 or newer, so
       abcde-musicbrainz-tool will abort if the version found is too old.
       Since tweaked to deal with multi-artist albums and tracks more
     + Add resume support in do_getalbumart()
     + Fix getopts setup for "P". Thanks to Alan W. Kerr for reporting this.
     + Major set of code cleanups to fix up lots of warnings found with
       shellcheck, and a few other style issues:
       - Lots of quoting fixes
       - Use $( instead of `
       - Stop using -o and -a syntax with if [ - use || or && instead
       - Wrap and shorten some very long lines
     + Wrap some output messages so they fit on a standard width console
     + Factor out repeated code and make page() more useful
     + Add version check before resuming from an old ripping run
   * Fix up wrong years in old changelog entries. Closes: #852745
   * New MusicBrainz code fixes lots of things. Closes: #864006
   * Move the Recommends on musicbrainz perl modules to Depends now that
     MusicBrainz is the default CD lookup method.
   * Add a version to the Depends on libwebservice-musicbrainz-perl - we
        now need 1.0.4 or newer.
   * Various minor packaging updates:
     + Update Standards-Version to 4.1.3
     + Update debhelper version
     + Switch to source format 3.0 (quilt)
     + Update the long description to update the list of output formats
