    2016-04-25 - - Update to version 2.7.2 * When using musicbrainz, don't assume that there will be release events attached to a particular CD release. Bug fix for the addition of year information support in 2.7.1. * Support for output to the Matroska container (mka). Encoder is FFmpeg (or avconv). Typical conf file syntax would be: MKAENCODERSYNTAX=ffmpeg FFMPEG=ffmpeg FFMPEGENCOPTS="-c:a ac3 -b:a 448k" OUTPUTTYPE="mka" * Add id3tag mp3 tagger as this is the tagger available to OpenBSD users. * Allow for cddb response 500. This closes Issue 26: * Fix for 'expansion of $REDIR' bug on MacOSX. This closes Issue 22: * Makefile adjusted to allow the sample abcde.conf file to be installed by default to /etc rather than $(prefix)/etc. * Allow getalbumart to correctly place cover image when single track is selected. This closes Issue 25: - Update abcde-quote.patch - Set BuildArch as noarch; the package doesn't contain any binary
