CUETools v2.2.3 Updated

freakazoid on 29 Jan 2023
  • 9MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Jan 2023
  • Suggested by freakazoid

CUETools helps ensure an album image is preserved accurately by managing lossless audio and CUE sheet format conversion. Since many applications don't keep track of preserving gaps and CUE sheet contents during conversion, or don't support all possible CUE sheet styles, CUETools preserves both with no loss in quality.

CUETools includes CUERipper, an extremely powerful yet easy-to-use CD ripping program, with features like lossless and lossy encoding options, EAC style logs, automatic metadata look-up and AccurateRip verification.

@ billon: Thanks ... and updated ;)

it's not stealth
the last stable version saves files inside AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\CLR Security Config\v2.0.50727.312\64bit\

Specular on 2016-02-13 03:09

The included CUERipper program is utterly superb and should be mentioned in the description I strongly think since it doesn't have enough attention and currently doesn't show up in results (I'll fix that in a sec).

It has an easy to use yet poweruser-friendly interface, produces EAC logs with AccurateRip information, offers Burst/Secure/Paranoid ripping modes (with Burst correctly set by default), allows for image or track rips, verify options and moe.

And one of the main features which solidified my switch: both it and the main CUETools offer a metadata search UI that displays the extended tag info such as Publisher, Barcode, etc. The only ripper I've tried which displays and tags this.

@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=forum&id=0653 ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

The publisher seems to have pulled the new release and is serving the 11.0.53254 release from December for both standard and portable downloads even though the main download page still shows 11.0.55321 as the current version.

JohnTHaller on 2016-02-18 17:49

And now it's updated.

Theoretically, 14.2 should work in XP, but it is hit and miss. The version that still works always is 13.13

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

After years of not being able to just drop-in a recent version of ffmpeg in Audacity's application folder, you can finally just do that.

Tried on recent version Audacity_x64 with ffmpeg_x64 (needs the shared builds) and it works! Just have to update location folder of ffmpeg on main gui.

jPortable v8 Update 361 Updated

SYSTEM on 28 Jan 2023
  • 157MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Jan 2023
  • Suggested by Checker

jPortable (formerly Java Portable) allows you to easily add a Java runtime environment to your portable device. It can be used in combination with jPortable Launcher to open Java JAR programs (many with their settings made portable) or used automatically with Java-enabled apps like PortableApps.com versions of LibreOffice and OpenOffice as well as web browsers like Chrome/Chromium, Opera, SeaMonkey and Firefox.

Category:

Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware / Partially Open Source
How to extract: Download the EXE and install to the folder CommonFiles\Java relative to the applications that use Java. For example:
  • If you have installed LibreOffice to Z:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
  • Similarly, if you have installed the Java Portable Launcher in Z:\PortableApps\JavaPortableLauncher, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
Java programs can be launched via batch files as well (thanks to user bro).

I've got jPortable working with X-LibreOffice as well. :)

E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib>dir /a
Volume in drive E is OHJELMAT
Volume Serial Number is A4D5-8D47

Directory of E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib

02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> .
02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> ..
30.01.2011 10:36 <DIR> 7za

0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 12 645 406 208 bytes free

The trick is that E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java is a junction that points to E:\CommonFiles\Java. This way the content of E:\CommonFiles\Java shows up in E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java.

freakazoid: jPortable can work independently of PA programs, including muCommander and some others I've tested. I tried to edit the entry to help give some idea of how to make that work.

REVerdi on 2020-03-09 21:17

CommonFiles\Java64 don't need to be at the root of the app folder.

For example, I adopted the following folder structure:

D:\Apps\Java\CommonFiles\Java64\...
D:\Apps\Java\JavaPortableLauncher64\... (not necessary, but it works)
D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\... (the application that requires java)

And in "D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\" I created the following bat:

@echo off
start D:\Apps\Java\CommonFiles\Java64\bin\javaw.exe -jar D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\irpf.jar

For me, it worked perfectly!
