T.E.A.R. (pronounced Tair) is a console-based frontend for common MP3/OGG creation tools which automates all of the settings involved in ripping and encoding a CD. TEAR uses the CDDB database at freedb.org to name, organize, and add ID3 tags to each encoded file. It can use either cdparanoia or cdda2wav to rip .WAV files from the CD and it can use lame, bladeenc, gogo, or OggEnc to encode them. TEAR also supports SMP.

Release Notes: The program was rewritten, and a number of features have been greatly simplified. Ogg support was reintroduced, SMP is now supported, and the program now shuts down correctly if it receives a kill signal. All config file variations have been taken into account and should all be interoperable, although some old options no longer exist.
Release Notes: This release is the resulting code of a complete rewrite of the TEAR code base. This rewirte should allow for faster run time, less memory hogging, and better error reporting, amongst other advances.
Release Notes: The CDDB_get incompatibility issue has finally been resolved. Now all versions of CDDB_get can be used with TEAR. Playlist support has also been fixed.
Release Notes: Updating the "stable" series to the same functionality as the "devel" series, setting the default cddb database to freedb.freedb.org, documentation and commenting the example tearrc file, and several other bugfixes.
Release Notes: The default cddb database changed to freedb.freedb.org.
