<LI>Option <KBD><B>-tao</B></KBD> is fully enabled.<BR>
SAO is still the preferred default but TAO is default if a track of
unpredicted size is present (stdin, named pipe, ...) or if a follow-up
session is written to an appendable CD.
(This is an intentional deviation from cdrecord defaults which themselves
have changed with the newest cdrecord versions.)
</LI>
<LI>Status report during blank, preparation and finalization improved.</LI>
<LI>Bug fixed: Trailing trash appended to .wav files caused error message
and, if exceeding fifo size, could even stall a burn.
(Workaround: disable fifo by <KBD><B>fs=0</B></KBD>)</LI>
<LI>Bug fixed: False speed with first pacifier cycle. Potential program
abort by floating point exception (NaN).</LI>
<LI>multi-session CDs: <KBD><B>-multi</B></KBD>, <KBD><B>-msinfo</B></KBD>,
