History of the ZLURP! builds and other tasty tidbits.
 
New Features V E R S I O N
1.2.1
R E L E A S E D
May.3.2000
    Added ability to store tag art as either JPG or PNG format. 
    Fixed for good (I hope!) an ID3v2 tag art bug.
    Just a quick update this time. Wanted to get a clean ID3v2 tag version out!

    Still taking CDDB² beta testers.
    CDDB² support is mostly in. We are only allowed to have a 
      max of 100 beta testers until the final release of Zlurp!
      If you want to help test CDDB², send a request to: 

         hatman@hatman.com
     
      or select CDDB² as the CD Info Source on the General Settings
      page to register as a CDDB² beta tester! THANKS!

    BLAZING SPEED! Try using the new GOGO-no-coda v2.30. You will be amazed! 
    Much improvement of the WAV to Encode feature. Had some bugs   to squash.

    Concentrated on improving getting CD info. 
    In the regular release there are now 2 sources to get CD info  - The original CDDB, and freeDB.org.
    You can also automatically check the other source if the disc wasn't found. 

    CD Info Submit is implemented. Now you can fix that annoying typo from CDDB! 

    * Blade dll support (version 0.91)   
    * GOGO-no-code dll support (version 2.30)
    * LAME dll support (version 3.70)
    * LAME dll support (version 3.80alpha)

    * Certified FREEDB.ORG CDDB(TM) Compatible
    * Certified Escient ® CDDB(TM) Compatible

February.15.2000
  • Finally fix that nasty "THEME" bug. We have forced a FIXED font in the tool bar. No more check boxes running amuck!
  • Add GOGO coder DLL, this is the first pass. So you need to RIP and ENCODE. But you will see it is extremely fast!
  • We now display the DLL versions in the MAIN screen.
  • Support for BLADE .91
  • Support for L.A.M.E. 3.60 - Remember to turn on DOWNLOAD newest version at startup and ZLURP! will do it automatically.
  • IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE ADDED TO ZLURP!? E-mail me: hatman@hatman.com

1.1.3
R E L E A S E D
January.30.2000
  • Caught a couple of BUGS. Encoding to MP3 from WAV gave you a error dialog box.
  • Napster users were not seeing their MP3's. Seems Napster is not supporting ID3v2. Please e-mail them and request that they add this feature. ID3v2 is very good and needs to be supported!
  • Working on adding GOGO coder DLL. You're going to like this! ON MY P2-400 I was getting encoding speed of up to x22

1.1.2
R E L E A S E D
January.19.2000
  • Pretty cover art!
  • Added ability to turn off album display for slower machines.  The art will still be saved if desired, but things won't s l o w  d o w n!
  • Back by popular demand...the minimize button.
  • Reorganized the output folders.  The WAV and ENCODED folders are now both placed inside the new OUTPUT folder.
  • Install creates a shortcut on the desktop to the OUTPUT folder...following AKRIP's lead on this one.
  • Can now automatically create a Winamp playlist for each ripped/encoded disc. Look for the checkbox on the WAV/MP3/ENC settings.
  • Made it easier to choose which ID3 tagging you prefer.  Just check or uncheck  the boxes on the toolbar.
  • First pass at the ever useful Help file is in.
  • Added a few (hopefully) useful things to the help menu - instant access to the readme file, and the Zlurp! home page.

  • First Alpha version for the Mac is ready to preview.  You can read the table of contents from the CD, and take a look at how the interface is shaping up.  Next line of attack is to get MacLame up and running!

    Nice little program, do check it out.

December.06.1999
  • Pretty cover art!
  • If you enable CD Now as the EXTended data source, Zlurp! will attempt to download cover art that can be saved and/or used in the ID3v2 tag.
  • Speaking of ID3v2 tags...Have added a few new fields, mainly the album cover art.  Have forced my tags to be version 2.2 even though I have v2.3 capability because there isn't anything out that will read v2.3 yet!  The best ID3v2 tag editor we have found so far is ID3v2 Tag Editor beta 4.
  • Download it at http://www.audioxl.com/id3v2/.  E-mail James Webb to beg him to work on it again!
  • Bug WINAMP http://www.winamp.com also to support ID3v2 tags!

    Found a new encoder.
    GOGO-no-coder mp3 encoder which is based on LAME ver 3.29beta and optimized by PEN@MarineCat, Keiichi SAKAI, URURI, kei and shigeo.

    GOGO-no-coder mp3 encoder is x2 as LAME.

    Why is it twice as fast you ask?

    GOGO makes use of MMX, (Enhanced) 3D Now! and SSE if your system supports these units.

1.05 Build 2
R E L E A S E D
November.14.1999
  • Have a check in for when CDDB is down, will automatically switch CDDB servers.
  • Download works with genre.ini, label.ini, and lame.dll.  You will only download a file if a new version exists on the server.  Don't have a merge in yet - currently will overwrite your file.  (mainly important for the label.ini if you have entered your own new labels!)
  • Sick Zlurp! programmer + Webnoize convention = not a substantial amount of new stuff added this time!
   In the works
  • Album art display when you enable EXTended info.  This will also automatically get your art to save in the ID3v2 tag.

October.31.1999
Some major reworking of ZLURP! has been going on. Read for yourself!...
  • Normalization has been added. All normalization is on-the-fly.
  • Windows Media Audio (WMA) can encode on-the-fly and from a WAV.
  • ID3v2 Tagging, first pass is now in. Just a micro tag for now!
  • The External Encoder support has been redone to add more flexibility. Any command line configuration will work now. (If you find one that DOESN'T, please yell at us so we can add it!)
  • Auto insert notification is now being intercepted. You won't have to keep killing your CD player every time you insert a new disc.
  • You can now add your own labels to the label list. Enter all the obscure Indies you want!
Version Alpha .01
  • MAC Version is now being worked on. Also looking at porting to Linux and BeOS.

  • SUPER FAST RIPPING! ZLURP! is now 150% FASTER!  - World's Fastest Ripper!*
  • One of our betatesters gave us his proud screenshot of ZLURP! in action by THPerkins (BetaTester)*
  • Now supports Windows Media Audio (WMA) - Must create .wav first. Hope to get on the fly in next build.
  • Changed the "Select All Tracks At Start" feature to default to none.Requested by John Podzilla (PalmPilotBoy)
  • Xing Encoder only works if you bought the XingMP3 Encoder 1.5. Installing AudioCatalyst doesn't install the required DLL's for the encoder to work.
  • I'M A ZLURP! BETATESTER hat's are being made. Hope to have a picture on the site soon.
  • Added a TON of CDROM drive information...check out the Hardware page.

October.13.1999
  • New clean installer. Thanks to Inno Setup written by Jordan Russell
  • New faster version of LAMEenc.DLL (Version 3.34)
  • Better checking for encoder module and disc availability.
  • Support for multiple CD-Rom drives is fully enabled.  Up to 8 CD-Roms in one computer  are allowed. (overkill for now, but who knows what the future may bring!)
New Features R E L E A S E D
October.10.1999
  • Asking before overwriting existing files is in!
  • Selecting all or no tracks at start is also in ("Select All Tracks At Start")
  • Limited working off-line is allowed.  A compromise solution has been implemented.  If you are off-line, or the version has expired you will be allowed to work with 4 tracks.  Warning Will Robinson...The off-line section has not been fully tested yet.
New Features R E L E A S E D
October.07.1999
  • Check for Update - let Zlurp! tell you when a new version is available.
  • Default settings for the rip/encode page.  Defaults are on a per-encoder basis.
  • Zlurp! version of the LAME DLL.  From this build on, you will need to use the Zlurp! version of the LAME DLL, named LAMEenc.dll.  It can be downloaded from www.zlurp.com. This is to ensure that there will always be a compatible version of LAME for Zlurp!

Been a looong day! Will have Beta 1.04 ready any minute now.
  • WAV Encoding, first pass, made it in. Currently, you have to encode one file at a time.
  • Batch encoding will be available very soon. The only problem was that Blade and LAME were not being very friendly, so you must use Xing, or an External Encoder.

Having server problems. Rats! The update will be ready to download later today.
  • New stuff includes External Encoder support. Try it with Plugger or ToMPG!
  • Keep your fingers crossed and I may get the WAV Encoding functional later today in time for the update.
  • Also looking into a MAC port. We've had many requests for such an animal!
  • A BIG thank you to all the Beta Testers who have returned their surveys. Keep 'em coming!
  • Another thank you goes out to everyone who at least gave Zlurp! a test run.
  • We're getting an impressive variety of CD-Rom drives that have been used with Zlurp!
