Xenial Xerus has a nice modern version of abcde:
andrew@athens:~$ abcde -v | head -n 1 This is abcde v2.7.1.
I would like to use this to produce:
- High quality mp3 files for my portable player
- Lossless flac files as an archival backup
- Suitable album art download for both formats
Using the capabilities of Xenial's abcde to perform all 3 actions at the same time...
Full disclosure: I was formerly one of the maintainers of abcde.
