Audex is a new audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on the application development framework Qt 4 (4.3.x). Archival functions of the extended database mode are in the focus by now.
Several people can use Audex to extract their audio CDs and sync metadata with a single SQL database. Every time someone wants to extract an audio CD that still exists in the database Audex will deny extracting. In normal mode Audex behaves just like every CDDA extractor.

And it supports Firebird:
– Synchronisation of metadata and even covers with MySQL/PostgreSQL/Firebird-Databases (e.g. explore it with a PHP-webinterface).

NHibernate 2.0 Alpha is out!

Ayende writes:

It gives me great pleasure to announce that NHiberante 2.0 Alpha 1 was released last night and can be downloaded from this location.

We call this alpha, but many of us are using this in production, so we are really certain in its stability. The reason that this is an alpha is that we have made a lot of changes in the last nine months (since the last release), and we want to get more real world experience before we ship this. Recent estimates are of about 100,000 lines of code has changed since the last release.
