Support for new id3 tags being used by iTunes?

Any plans to support the new id3 tag frames iTunes introduced with the recent versions, especially the new GRP1 frame (iTunes Grouping)?

never got an answer on this, so trying again.   MP3tag added support for the GRP1 mp3 frame over a year ago... still wondering if it's a possibility this could be supported in Fb2k sometime soon also without having to use multiple taggers.   Thank you.

Thanks, Peter.   Just installed 1.4.1 final but still not seeing the Grouping tag display in Properties nor is it found in a Search query.    What tag name is associated with the GRP1 id3 frame?   Perhaps I need to configure something somewhere?   I did verify the GRP1 frame is populated in the files.

You need to reload info for metadata changes to affect files that are already cached in media library/loaded playlists.

   "add a check box" in 'Advanced->Tagging->MP3->ID3v2 revision and quirks' to
   'Map TIT1 to Work and GRP1 to Grouping (more compatible with iTunes)'

ITUNES GROUPING        "TXXX...ITUNES GROUPING"    mean...ITUNES GROUPING
GROUPING                     "GRP1"                                     @grp                                       Grouping [mp3]         Grouping [m4a]
WORK                             "TIT1"                                       @wrk                                       Work (name) [mp3}   Work (name) [m4a]

   "an alternative check box" for greater tag control would be to
   'Map TIT1 to iTunes Work not Grouping (more compatible with iTunes)'

ITUNES GROUPING         GRP1                                       mean...ITUNES GROUPING     Grouping [mp3]
GROUPING                      "TXXX...GROUPING"                @grp                                                                          Grouping [m4a]
WORK                              TXXX...WORK                          @wrk                                                                          Work (name) [m4a]
ITUNES WORK                "TIT1"                                       mean...ITUNES WORK             Work (name) [mp3}


These changes will allow, across most devices, the new use of Work, Movement, etc for classical
 song identifications and the previous use of Grouping for album identification, such as Studio,
 Live, Other, Compilation etc, which was done with <contentgroup> and <content group>.

Thanks foobar2000 for all that you can do, it is the best thing out there, everyone keep supporting it.
