Any guesses how far away we are from that date?

No, dates are not given, but much progress has been made as it is in the Release Candidate phase.

(1) If MM finds no track info,...
(2) Open a separate audio ripper (such as Cowon's JetAudio), and enter track info there
(3) upload that track info freedb (in JetAudio)
(4) Return to MM, and add/rescan these newly ripped tracks into MM...
I know MM4 is finally out, so this thread is dead for many users. But I owe the topic one last update:

The process I described above -- to get around the bug in uploading track info from MM3 to freedb -- was NOT satisfactory. Beyond the pain of working in two music managers, the info I would upload to freedb from any other music manager would not appear in freedb for a minimum of 24 hours! Ripping CDs becomes a major pain with a 24+ hr pause between steps 3 & 4 above.

So, I gave up on doing my civic duty of contributing track data to freedb.

(I will be upgrading to MM4 soon; just haven't had the time to do that carefully. With a massive library of highly organized and tagged songs, I won't do the migration without first studying it and taking some time-consuming precautions.)
