Future Plans for BladeEnc
I have great plans for this encoder and have thought up a lot
of features I would like to implement. Unfortunately I have so little time
to work with this product that I'm afraid you will have to wait quite some

The main features I plan to implement are:
Do you want a feature which I haven't thought of ?
Then don't hesitate to mail me!
The ability to add new files to the batch without cancelling the current
A suspend function so you can stop BladeEnc in the middle of a process

Automatic frequency conversion for samples that aren't 32, 44.1 or 48 kHz.

Ask before overwriting an already existing MP3 (and a switch to tell BladeEnc
to NOT ask).
Support for RAW samples (with switches to specify frequency, bits, mono/stereo
