AmigaOS4.x native replacement for cdplayer.library V37:

Uses READ CD command to play CD audio tracks over AHI (similar method as what
PlayCDDA uses).


Copy the cdplayer.library to LIBS:.


52.7 (23-Jul-2012)
 - CDPLAY_PAUSE now flushes the CDDA buffers so that there won't be any wrong
   CDDA frames played if a program chooses to resume playback at a different
   position than the paused one

52.6 (23-Dec-2011)
 - Added CDPlayAddr() function

52.5 (30-Nov-2011)
 - Increased the size of the CDDA buffers to get more reliable CDDA playback
   with real CD/DVD drives
 - Changed around the volume setting/getting code so that it now reads/writes
   all channels in one go and doesn't require any additional locking

52.4 (28-Nov-2011)
 - Fixed INQUIRY command in CDInfo()
 - Changed GetVolume() and SetVolume() implementations so that they return
   quicker than before

52.3 (25-Nov-2011)
 - Fixed a stupid bug in the CDDA buffering which would cause stuttering audio
   playback especially at the beginning

52.2 (24-Nov-2011)
 - Rewrote the code so that CDDA decoding (only endian conversion) and volume
   scaling are now done in one pass instead of two
 - Rewrote CDDA buffering code so that it reads in advance (should work better
   with real CD/DVD drives than it did before)
 - Track numbers in API are now always 1 to NumTracks (the example code gave
   the impression that in CDPlay at least they are numbered 0 to NumTracks-1
   but this appears to be false from testing with other programs)

52.1 (16-Nov-2011)
 - First released version
