Peter 16Dec16: This page has many out-dated, untended, projects/projects that we should consider removing from this page.
  • Gale 16Dec16: The open source MP3 decoding library we use (libmad) has been unmaintained for 12 years. Does that mean we should stop using it? I think it needs a case by case approach. Psycleis an example that should be retained I would think. But of course it depends if in practice it works on modern OS'es. Many apps notionally not developed since Windows XP days still work on Win 10.
    • Peter 16Dec16: ah and that's why I didn't just blunder in an straightaway delete stuff. Maybe you could take and express a view on each individual one in their ednotes. I feel that it would not be unfair to add to each one a little note or some additional test advising the user that the project/product may be no longer tended or supported.
    • Gale 18Dec16: It is a shame about CDex because it has a good feature to rip any part of the CD to one file, which is useful e.g. for live or continuous CD's. The old versions here http://www.oldversion.com/windows/cdex/ are safe and once installed give you no way to update to the crapware versions. I think those old versions of CDex could have a cautious listing here (and in the Manual).
