Finally, EAC 0.85 beta is out! I hope you like it, there were really many changes to 0.81 beta, but I think you will see for yourself.

New features that in 0.85 beta adding to the features listed in the previous news

  • Certified Escient ® CDDB(TM) Compatible
  • Absolute sample offset detection
  • Overreading capability for extracting correctly with non-zero offsets
  • Preliminary WMA (MS Audio) support
  • Sorry to say that interpolation in the audio editor is still not really improved, I will do it for the next version…

There are still some more informations…
I started a new CD-ROM drive database, please help me to fill it out as good as possible. Have a look at the table and send me the information for your drives. Please make sure for the sample offset to test it with at least two different CDs and to use at least 0.85 beta!
I don’t have the time anymore to give email support for EAC or similar problems. From now I started two mailing lists at The first list is for users asking other users for help. I hope that many experienced users will help the other… The second mailing list is, like the mailing list I maintained so far, only a announcement mailing list. If you are not interested in tips and help from other users you probably want only subscribe to eac-announce. In the announcement list all news about EAC are spread.
For all persons already in my mailing list : The current database will be lost, so please subscribe again at eac-announce. I try to answer to problems in the mailing list, if no one else find a solution to a problem, but do not mail me to my email address for help. I will not answer on such mails. The only exception would be if you encountered an unknown bug and I want you to help me debugging the problem.
Thanks for your understanding!
