Removed DRM. Due to the architecture of Microsoft's DRM, we were unable to do any fading or mixing unless we cost the user 2 burns per DRM'd file. This and other limitations made it a useless and slow system that we do not see being successful in the future. We encourage all users to support paid sites that host non DRM'd files.

If burning an MP3 data CD/DVD and you were close to the limit, it would have a burn failure.

Fix for the Intel Application Accelerator conflict No longer restarts computer!
Default the burning engine to Goldenhawk, as it appears more reliable at this point. If no cd recorders are found, we auto switch to Gear. Note this will only happen if you have never installed the software before. Anyone having problems with the old versions, might install this version and then go into Preferences and switch to the Goldenhawk burning engine. We are working on resolving the issues related to Gear, but this will take at least a month.
Automatic warning if you have installed the Intel Application Accelerator. There is a conflict when using our software with the Gear engine.
Now installing the Acoustica ASPI drivers by default.
Fix for audio CDs that have a data track as the first track. This would happen on mixed mode CDs such as a computer game with a CD audio session as the second session.
Bug Fix: In some cases, the first frame of an MP3 was getting corrupted by the id3v2 tag...it would have resulted in an occasional MP3 with wild looking bitrate info.
Bug Fix: In some cases, when launching the cd burner with an audio cd in the drive, it would think that there was a blank cd in the drive.
Logging change. We now only store one file when there is a crash which is called 'cdburner-crash.txt'. Also, the user is not notified of this file being created. This will simplify support and still allow us to diagnose hard to reproduce problems.
Fix for ripping error prone tracks with Gear and rip retries.
Standard open/save file dialogs would not show My Docs and My Desktop on some systems.
Launching browser fix (Purchase page and others would not come up. ;0)

Fix for searching Desktops on Win95,Win98 & WinME
Fix for crash when trial is expired and you don't enter a reg code. (Was harmless as the program would shut down, anyhow.
Due to mem leak in the Acoustica ASPI, we disable polling of the CDR status. This should cut down on mem leaks.

New supported CD Recorders added. Unfortunately, our lead tester's CD recorder is no longer supported, which is why we list this version as "beta"
Mp3s that did not convert to CD quality would cause the burn to fail or even crash in some cases. I decided to post this patch before I recevied the next upgrade to the supported cdr recorders.
