    We appologize to those who sent us mail with suggestions and do not find their requests fulfilled. Frequent power loss due to NATO bombing caused lots of problems including loosing some data. Please send us again your requests.

26. March 1999.

    MPGScript 4.21 released. It cames sooner than planned, but, since my country is in war with NATO, I do not know when I will be able to work on it. This version is fully functional and presents new stuff: users can create their own macros, limited support for VBR files, new predefined macros, template import and export option, RTF CD Cover Page template. Registration from countries members of NATO and supporters for their aggression on my country are requred for additional humanitarian aid fee. Collected money goes for humanitarian purposes.

    MPEG Audio frame header specifications updated.

30. October 1998.

    MPEG Audio Frame Header specification (mpeghdr.htm) document updated due to feedback I received from users.

    WARNING! I decided to change name for MP3List application since there are lots of tools with similar name which makes confusion. MP3List will be called MPGScript in future. It will be released as version 4.0. You will find lots of changes including simpler and easier user interface.

19. October 1998.

    New version of MP3List released (PR12). Some bugfixes done. Now, when exporting to m3d file, you may specify volume label you want to be set for all records. Suitable when preparing CD's for burning. Next release should contain much more changes. It will be adjusted with all features of current version of MPEG Audio Tools (most important will be support for MPEG Datafile version 1.2

5. October 1998.

FileDetectionPrecision property added to both TMPEGAudio and TMPEGAudioList class. Behaviour of TMPEGAudio.Textilize method changed. NOW IT DOES NOT affect contents of TMPEGAudio.Macro and TMPEGAudio. TMPEGAudio.FReadData, TMPEGAudio.WriteTag and TMPEGAudio.RemoveTag methods are changed to be functions and return result error code. Added sorting capabilities to TMPEGAudioList and now, user may specify if he wants list not to be sorted, to be sorted internaly (sort key specified in SortMacro) or externaly, by user defined function and also sort direction (ascending or descending).

8. Sept. 1998.

    New version of Delphi unit MPEG Audio Tools v1.6 released. Few bug fixes, but many improvements. MPEG audio detection is much better, support for MPEG audio version 2.5 is added, TMPEGData structure is changed and finnaly it ends up same size regardles what version of compiler is used. Macro supported is also better now. Few new properties and methods are added. TMPEGAudio List added. It manages MPEG audio lists. It is still in developing stage. Read about details in MPGTools unit documentation.

    Now, you can download two MPGTools demo applications, TAG Editor and MPGList. Examining their source should help you understand how whole thing works.

    MPGTools support mail list is on now. If you want to became member let us know. There is no high traffic, just news info.

    For those interested for details, e have prepared document which explains structure of MPEG Audio frame header and MPEG TAG



    When I rewrote MPEG header decoding routine I made small mistake which resulted MP3List not to be able to calculate song duration. This is corrected in version 3.2 PR9.


    Mp3List Version 3.2 PR8 was made first publicly available version. This is still prerelease since there will probably be some changes or additions, according to user feedback. However aplication is fully functional.
