Does this new version properly support playback of iTunes Gapless info in MP3 and M4A (AAC) files created with iTunes 7?

No such info in change log, and the answer is no.
This would be stable release since beta that came with several improvements.

Thanks for great release once again.

Two cuesheet related questions:

1. Why can I have "edit cuesheet" on wavpack files, but not on aac files? So how can I edit the embedded cuesheet (or is it "chapter information"?) in aac files? It's easier and more transparent to handle in wavpack files because there we have the cuesheet editor.

2. Are embedded cuesheets technically possible for file formats like mp3 or vorbis?

Thanks for the new release! I really like the improvements that have been made. I've been playing with the beta on another PC and hoping an official release wouldn't be too far off. So, can I install it over top of 0.9.3.1 so that I don't have to reconfigure everything from scratch, or should I uninstall the older version first?

Edit: Don't have a lot of extra components installed, so I backed up my foobar folders and took a chance at installing the new version over top of the old. Everything is running perfectly and so I don't need to reconfigure my layout from scratch. Once again, thanks for what could very well be considered the greatest audio app on earth.

BTW, http://www.foobar2000.org/beta/ still mentions beta 3 instead of saying "no beta".

What has changed regarding the cue sheet handling anyway? I didn't notice any difference.

Added LAME version and partial settings detection for MP3 files

How do I use this? The properties dialog shows no such information for my files. Do I have to look somewhere else?

Had to reload the information from file.

rh2600: Did you ensure the user profiles setting in the installer didn't change? I had the same problem, but the only "problem" was that I neglected to notice that user profiles were enabled when I installed 0.9.4.

With the default UI or Columns?  I only use the default myself (modified to be prettier of course) and every setting carried over from 0.9.1 straight to 0.9.4.

Columns... I think there is something relating to the per-user setting.. I didn't change any of the options, and I think this means user profiles were enabled...

my bad...

I'm new to this... so if this post belongs in the split about non-compliant cue sheets... I apologize...

I can't seem to get any cue sheet to behave properly in this version. I have ripped CDs using the FLAC image guide. When I go to embed the cue sheet created by EAC, most of the data does not update. The file appears to save, but the track title does not update.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It may just be that I am doing this incorrectly...

You propably have to reload the info from file after any change for tags. I mean select the songs and use "Reload info from file" funktion.

Still no fix. I went back into the embedded cue sheet and the changes had not saved.
