RipOff 0.8.1 release
Fixed a bug that was causing 100% CPU usage due to a busy loop. This should also bring RipOff's ripping speeds back to normal on systems running 2.6.17 or greater Linux kernels.

RipOff 0.8 release
New Features Include
- FLAC support!
- The RipOff CD extraction dialogue window now provides information on how quickly the CD is being ripped along with an estimate of much time left until the operation is completed. Screenshot here
- RipOff will now compile with GTK 2.4, allowing it to run on older distros
- RipOff lets you know what plugins it will be installing if you are installing from source.
- RipOff now installs a menu entry in desktop environments that conform to the FreeDesktop.org standard
- UTF-8 support has been verified to work completely IF you have libcddb 1.2.1 installed
- Fixed a bug where RipOff reported one genre in the CDDB lookup window and a different one when a particular CD was selected.
- Fixed a bug where RipOff reported 255 0 second length tracks when the CD drive was in fact empty on some systems.
RipOff now has RPMs for RHEL4 and Fedora Core 5 as an available an installation method. Download them on the downloads page and for details on how to install them see the FAQ.
This will be the last RipOff release for awhile unless some major bug appears that needs to be fixed. RipOff also desperately needs some sort of icon. If you are interested in contributing one email me at brnewber_______AT_____gmail____dot___com

RipOff finally has a real website online! Here's some info on the project:
RipOff is a GTK+ based CD Ripper for Linux (and hopefully for other Unixy systems once some testing and fixing has been done) that supports a simple interface, CDDB lookups, and a plugin-based encoder architecture. It looks GUI-wise suspciously like Sound Juicer in some ways, although I've changed the parts I didn't like of Sound Juicer's interface (of course). It is currently in a pre-1.0 release cycle. More specific info can be found here.
