Special Thanks and Credits
I would like to extend my many thanks to the people who have contributed to
the ID3Lib project. The show of support has been tremendous. I consider
ID3Lib to be a very 'international' product, as contributions have come from
almost literally every corner of the globe. If I have missed you, please
forgive my lapse of memory.
* Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler - for their great zlib compression library
and for making it free.
* Tord Jansson - for much help with teaching me how to make and use DLLs.
* Slava Karpenko for creating the MacOS static link libraries for the PowerPC
and CodeWarrior.
* Bob Kohn - for his advice, input, and generally creating the ID3Lib license
* Eng-Keong Lee - for finding a few bugs and for extensively testing ID3Lib
* James Lin - for his 'ID3v2 Programming Guidelines', and many helpful
* Michael Mutschler - for prompting me to write the Unicode support and for
his input on the ID3Lib calling convention.
* Martin Nilsson - for ID3v2, his support of the ID3Lib web page, for many,
many suggestions, debates, pointers, URLs, documents, and brightly coloured
* Chris Nunn - for the 3D animated ID3v2 logos which appear in the ID3Lib web
page and in the distribution.
* Lachlan Pitts - for general implementation ideas and his brief but helpful
work on the up-coming genre tree.
* Jukka Poikolainen - for prompting to implement error handling via the C++
exception handling mechanism instead of the old 2.xx-style of using an
error handling function.
* Carson Puchol - for his help with some minor Linux compilation hassles.
* Andreas Sigfridsson - for his initial code for the unsync/resync support
and for his very valuable input in long brainstorming sessions.
* Michael Robertson - for helping support ID3Lib by posting announcements on
* Ilana Rudnik - for bug finding and suggestions.
* Chuck Zenkus - for his support of ID3v2 and ID3Lib by providing us with a
mirror in the United States and for his bug finding and suggestions.
* And last but by no means least, all the others who support ID3Lib by
subscribing to the mailing list and to the contributors to the discussions
and debates in the ID3v2 discussion group.
Without the help of all these people, ID3Lib would not be as good as it is,
and I dare say might not even exist if they all weren't around to provide
motivation to continue to write the thing!
