AudioCd. Week 1.

Here a small report about what was done during first week of GSoC:

1. As it was stated in proposal current implementation of AudioCD collection uses deprecated Amarok framework MediaDevice. So, during last week code was cleaned and now AudioCd collection does not depend on it.
2. Launching Amarok with --cdplay option didn't work early. Now it works.
3. Copying from audiocd collection was fixed . It is already in master :)

P.S. This changes can be found here

Summer with Amarok

My name is Tatiana Gornak, I'm PhD student of Technical University of Kaiserslautern.

In this blog I will share information about my Google Summer of Code project "Audio СD collection refactoring", which is a part of Amarok (if you still not aware of it Amarok is great music player).

The reason why this project come to life is that the code that handles Audio CD playback uses deprecated technologies, suffers from bugs that affect important functionality, so it should be revised and rewritten.

More info about current state of art will come soon!
