Asunder Rips and Encodes Audio Without the Bloody Mess

Filed under
Software

The need for ripping files from CDs is fast become old hat -- that is, unless you have a collection of plastic discs you want to pare onto your smartphone or portable music player. In that case, you will find Asunder to be an indispensable tool.

Asunder is a graphical audio CD ripper and encoder for Linux. One of its best features is the ability to save tracks from an audio CD in a variety of file formats. For example, you can choose WAV, MP3, OGG, FLAC, WavPack, Musepack, AAC, and Monkey's Audio files. That gives you a good chance of matching whatever format your mobile device of choice uses.

On the boundaries of GPL enforcement

Last October, the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) jointly published "The Principles of Community-Oriented GPL Enforcement". That document described what those organizations believe the goal of enforcement efforts should be and how those efforts should be carried out.

McHardy has also recently been suspended from the netfilter core team pending his reply to "severe allegations" with regard to "the style of his license enforcement activities". Read more
