AcornCD change list
Submissions! This release now supports submissions, but only locally. I'm still awating verification of
AcornCDDB by the CDDB owners, so I can't allow it to submit to the Internet CDDB servers at
the moment. Test harness has full support for submissions.
Improved handling of choices in AcornCDDB.
Tidy-up in various areas.
Updated spec to give message numbers for submission wimp messages. Doh!
AcornCDDB now meets the licencing requirements for CDDB, which includes showing a CDDB
icon, Copyright messages, etc.
Added !CDDB developer specification, which specifies the wimp message
protocol between CDDB clients and the !CDDB server. This now includes a section on submission
of CDDB entries, although the latest released !CDDB does not contain this functionality, as I'm waiting
for approval from the CDDB owners. Also added some example C code for creating a
dynamic area and populating it with CD data to pass to !CDDB for a CDDB submission. (It uses the same DA handling code
that the server and test harness use).
Ahem. Discovered that all the releases thus far haven't been compiled
to be Internet 4 compatible. This release is compatible with
Internet 4. Thanks to Rick Hudson for helping me to discover this fact.
Fixed hostname resolution for people that don't use the ANT Resolver, will
now fall back to blocking DNS if ANT Resolver is not detected.
Improved !Run of !CdTest and !RunT of !CDDB to show how the developer
can obtain the debug output from !CDDB and !CdTest if they want.
Improved Choices file handling. This will mean that people upgrading
from an earlier release will get an error and the choices values will
be defaulted. However, seeing as there's only one choice its not such
a hardship :).
Really fixed the large database entries problem,
somehow my fix got lost in release 3. CD entries no longer have a
max size of 10k (now 100k, I wonder if it should be bigger still).
