CDDE is a program that detects when a CDROM drive has a disc inserted. When it finds a disc inserted in the drive it will attempt to determine the type of disc, and execute a specified command. This means a DVD can be inserted and your favorite DVD software will start, or a data CD can be automatically mounted.

Release Notes: The program now operates as a daemon unless run in batch mode. All output besides command-line errors are sent via syslog.
Release Notes: The config file format was changed, and is not backwards compatible. Man pages were added, and the polling delay was fixed to not sleep initially. A command-line option was added for running commands for discs already in the drive, and a batch mode that checks all drives once and exits immediately was added.
Release Notes: This release increases default wait time while polling, adds SVCD support, changes how disc_has_dir works, and no longer uses mount, so no longer needs to be setuid root.
Release Notes: The program now silently removes drives from the list of drives to check when it has a problem with that drive.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug causing cdde to crash when you put in a data CD, and lowering libxml dependency to 2.4.19.
