                          Re: dBpoweramp R202x Release

                          R2024-04-01 (Windows)

                          FLAC encoder, limits to 655350Hz, returns an error message if source more than this

                          Opus updated to 1.5.1

                          Overwrite page:
                          automatically tracks which files exist and shown in red, extension shown also.
                          'No to All' renamed 'Skip existing' and the button will disable if no files are being overwritten (after renaming)
                          Overwrite (x) shows how many are being overwritten
                          also the headers autosize when size window, so extension always shows on edge
                          detects also later encoded files which would overwrite files which are being written during conversion
                          'Overwrite' button changes to 'Convert' if no files are being overwritten

                          Right click folder >> Batch Convert, Batch Edit Tags set also by Placement option (Windows 11+)

                          if a file 'NoRegCheck.bin' is placed in the same folder as dBpoweramp programs, it disables the update check and registration code entry.

                          dMC DSP Volume Normalize: redesigned page, for EBU it allows editing of the reference target level, also added a new option 'Reduce if above' which is ideal for using with floating point and reducing to a desired final dB value

                          ID Tag Editor - ALT + Right Arrow to move to next file, ALT + Left Arrow to previous file

                          CD Ripper - if already had ripped CD and try again, but cancel at overwrite page, then would show the ripping results, even though did not rip
                          CD Ripper - if internet access is disabled and no metadata then says so on Metadata info tip, also the Manual Search page is not shown
                          CD Ripper - Speed up of metadata lookup when servers are down
                          CD Ripper - Manual Metadata review, remembers the last position, even if dragged to other monitor, or resized for next showing, note resets to default position on CD ripper restart

                            R2024-04-01 (macOS)

                            Auto updater: get latest allowed version even if updates have expired

                            Added an option to allow encoding of non-subset FLAC files (extremely high sample rates etc)

                            Fixed WAV tag writing settings not being respected in specific scenarios.

                            Improved ReplayGain peak scan accuracy, allowed >1.0 peaks for various lossy codecs.

                            Made proper Opus gain fields written when writing ReplayGain tags.

                            Overwrite prompt dialog updates: show collisions if multiple source files produce same output, show existing files in red, show how many files are about to be overwritten.

                            Made possible to read .M4A files renamed to .AAC and vice versa.

                            Third party codec libraries updated.

                            CD Ripper: Prevented AccurateRip configuration from being opened with no drive selected.
                            CD Ripper: Better feedback with unchecked "allow dBpoweramp to access the internet"

                            Volume Normalize DSP update: for EBU it allows editing of the reference target level, also added a new option 'Reduce if above' which is ideal for using with floating point and reducing to a desired final dB value

                            Edit ID Tags: Can cycle files with cmd+shift+left/right.

                              CD Ripper: we have restored freedb.dbpoweramp.com as a replacement for gnudb (which took-over from freedb.org), why? gnudb.org have started requiring emails to access their system. We do not agree with this type of intrusive data collection to access a publicly created database. It goes against the ethos of running a public database, especially as dBpoweramp users would have submitted a very significant percentage of all discs in that database.
                              Going forward we will create a new community populated metadata database, it will be branded as part of the AccurateRip family, and will be open to all. AccurateRip has existed without restrictions for almost 20 years, together we will create a high quality database. Watch this space...

                              Tag Editor: pressing enter when editing a tag value will accept changes, pressing enter again will close tag editor page (windows)

                              Replaygain DSP detects when encoding lossy, will calculate RG values by decoding the lossy encoded file after encoded

                              Bug Fix: CD Ripper: if a track required re-ripping of bad frames, then AccurateRip cross checking of pressings for that one track would fail (windows)

                              CD Ripper: log is now in order of tracks (windows)

                              New toolbar (macos)
