* Exported INFILE environment variable is always shell-escaped
This prevent screw-ups when users are using funky filenames.
* dtas-player: enqueued commands cannot use audio format bypass
(the audio format cannot be known ahead-of-time from raw commands)
* YAML omap (ordered map) is explicitly used for all env hashes for
user editing. Normal (unordered hashes) are still allowed if loading
existing files. This does not affect Ruby 1.9+ users, but allows
easier processing for users of other languages.
New features (all platforms):
* dtas-player now plays dtas-splitfx YAML files support cue sheet
emulation based on the track list. Under Linux, changes to
the YAML file are reflected in real-time as the file is edited
and saved in an $EDITOR. This feature is useful for dialing
in EQ, compressor, and limiter effects on tracks.
* dtas-player supports the "source restart" command for restarting
playback on modified files for systems without inotify support.
* dtas-splitfx now exports the INDIR and INBASE environment variables
which are intended to act like `$(@D)' and `$(@F)' in GNU make(1).
It should ease managing temporary files for some effects
(e.g. noiseprof + noisered in sox)
* dtas-console supports '!' and '@' hotkeys keys for moving within
files with embedded cue sheets.
* dtas-player supports the "trim" command to focus on a particular
portion of a track. It may be useful when combined with the existing
"tl repeat" command for dialing in audio editing parameters
(via a splitfx YAML file):
To continuously repeat a 5 second part of the current track starting
at 1 minute into the track:
dtas-ctl tl repeat 1 && dtas-ctl trim 1:00 5
Passing "off" as the parameter disables trim:
dtas-ctl trim off
* dtas-env(7) manpage added for common environment variables across
* dtas-sinkedit shows default parameters in addition to user-changed
New features (Linux-only)
* dtas-sourceedit and dtas-sinkedit support inotify when editing
the YAML text file. This allows real-time updates on $EDITOR
file save as the user edits the parameters of the commands used
for decoding and playback.
* dtas-archive - paranoid archival script for copying and (re-reading)
files. This is useful when transferring files from removable devices
to computers without ECC memory (or any other bit errors in transport
before main memory is accessed). This requires Ruby 1.9.3 or later
(no 3rd-party RubyGems) on Linux for IO#advise support.
There are also many internal cleanups and more work-in-progress
for dtas-splitfx features.
 feature requires the sleepy_penguin RubyGem to be installed.
Upgrade or install "dtas" via RubyGems or via tarball at:
