Sergey77:  have you tried using the new wrapper to attach an image to a stream that isn't on a web url path, but on an internal path to an image file on your computer?  Is that working for you?  If so, what are you entering?  Thanks for any help!

In this case, it is much more clear to show the samples rather than the spectogram to understand the "click". See attachment.

The problem is actually not in the junction between both tracks, but actually on the content of the second track.
If we look at it, the first 5 samples are the worst, but we could say that up to the first 32 samples contain an harmonic that shouldn't be there. (Maybe more, but since this is lossy coding, I can't be sure what comes from the codec itself and what comes from the "click")

It is reasonable to say that the codec cannot adapt fast enough from DC to the cut place and the filter causes that oscillation. I don't know if this could require work on the decoder, on the encoder or both and to which extent this could be worked out.  I checked to see if framesize made any difference and while it did, it was minimal. Reducing the bitrate to 48 had a greater impact.

I checked again, you were right. That m-TAGS does not allow to attach a picture to the link with the end .flac, but your component allows.
Everything works great!
@Case, please also consider the possibility to use the feature "Linked meta (field for inline editing)" in CUI for editing TAG fields directly from the playlist for External Tags.

I now performed the scanning speed test with reboots between the sessions. 1.3.20 RG scanned the test album at 739.60x realtime speed, 1.4 at 723.57x speed and 1.4.1b4 at 735.46x speed. Once the album is cached the scan speed is a bit over 3000x realtime speed with all the versions. These speeds are so close to each other that I'd say any differences are caused by random background activity.

If you do find a scenario where the new version indeed is slower, please post details.

But during playback, the behavior of these items is different at playlist. For items of External Tags the contents $meta(genre), $info(tagtype), $meta(url) are missing

External Tags returns what the decoder returns. That's the same output you'd get from unwrapped stream. But I changed that for the next version.

One more question: m-TAGS can not attach the picture for the same link when the External Tags has already attached the picture?
(I get an error: "Attached picture editing failure on "D:\RadioPlaylist\Intense Radio.tags": Access denied"
You're sure you aren't attempting to use m-TAGS to work on a link wrapped behind the exttag:// protocol? My component shouldn't affect .tags files in any way.

If you replaygain scan albums you have just replaygain scanned and you are not low on memory, the files will be in Windows' cache and you have just eliminated all disk access delays. If the data is on a regular mechanical hard drive fragmentation for example can slow things down terribly.

I just tested ReplayGaining a test album in 1.3.20, 1.4 and 1.4.1 beta 4 and 1.3.20 was the slowest. 1.4 and 1.4.1 beta had the same speed. This was not tested after careful rebooting though so the results are for cached material.

One thing that could slow down 1.4 and newer versions is the on-by-default downsampling for hi-resolution audio. But that's at least not the case for mjm716 since mp3s don't support that.

Also if you use True Peak scanning picking a slow resampler will certainly affect things. Use SoX or PPHS normal quality for fastest results.

I think tag troubles are quite off-topic in this thread. But I'm quite positive Peter hasn't changed how "jazz" is displayed in the formats that use hard-coded lists for common genres.
