Exact Audio Copy: what's new in V1.0 beta 1

Music geeks rejoice. A new version of Exact Audio Copy has been made available for download by its creator Andre Wiethoff. V1.0 beta 1 comes now with:

  • Unicode support for all fields (but not CD-Text)
  • New database engine for storing CD information (old databases can be imported)
  • Metadata plugin support, for now there is a freedb plugin included. This will be released as open source freeware soon.
  • Cover support, can be drag’n'dropped from a file, a web page or can be retrieved via a metadata plugin (support included in the freedb plugin). Cover can be written into tags or in the extraction directory
  • AccurateRip v2 support
  • Better Windows 7 support (like progress display in taskbar icon, storage of user data in the correct folders, etc.)
  • Free selection of first track track number (including option to continue numbering from the last inserted CD)
  • Option to always write the log file in english language
  • Option for writing a checksum over the extraction log data to the log file
  • Average extraction speed is listed in the log file
  • Possibility to write only V2 tags (and no V1 tags)
  • Free choice of replacement characters for filenames
  • Range copy selects now the first selected consecutive range of tracks as default
  • New folder browser dialog (system dialog for folders)
  • Added two placeholders for filename creation for track length (min and sec)
  • Test for (command line) compression options (and display of a sample command line)
  • Menu for removing unwanted/doubled spaces from “cd title”, “artist” & “track titles”

And some features are now removed:

  • Removed Windows 2000 support (and any older OSs)
  • Removed ID3V1 tag editor
  • Removed compression offset


(Thanks: Triple-B)
