Awesome!  Can I confirm that external cue sheet support has been changed as well (before I do something stupid to my collection!)?  All the Index 00's are now retained and the additional (previously unsupported) fields are now supported?  I am in the process of embedding those cuesheets but was leaving 0.8.3 around in the meantime.

Thanks!!

  • Rewritten embedded cuesheet metadata handling


Oooh, I wonder what it does? Does anyone know? (No, I don't want to try it out myself now... )

Has hell really frozen over?  ID3v2.3 support!  Excellent!

Does "Rebuild mp3 stream" include "Fix vbr mp3 header"? (if being applied on a vbr mp3)

Another question. I don't know if "apply replaygain to mp3 data" is new: This does touch the file. Does it do mp3gain? Why don't you store undo information then?

I'd also like to know what has been changed with regard to cuesheets. Please?

* Added LAME version and partial settings detection for MP3 files
Where should that function be ? I don't see anything in the propertities dialog 

Quote
* Rewritten ReplayGain info editor dialog
I liked the old layout more, but i don't use that too often anyways...

Quote
* Properties dialog improvements
If i open the propertities window for a single file, the text in the field window is auto-wrapping, but for multiple files not. Is this intentional ?

(Maybe this was in before, i just didn't notice it)

Thanks for the new version, btw !

EDIT:

Works here under W2KSP4

I have no problem viewing the LAME settings:

OK, i was able to find some MP3s where the 'Tool' field is available. But on the most files encoded by myself with fb2k & LAME 3.97b there's no 'Tool'...
Your propertities windows look different. Are you using a custom windows theme ?

With this option activated, i lost my %rating% tags and embedded dynamic lyrics when the file was updated (play_counter).
The plugin "Lyric Show Panel" is unable to write lyrics to file

How do you know it's ID3v2.3 support?

Just try it. Then use mp3tag or other tagger to check the version.

Thanks! I love the sour "common bugs in other software’s ID3v2 implementations" remark by the way. 


Is ID3v2.4 still default? Can't test it here because haven't got a Windows box around right now...

Geez, that's why you don't use a beta "productively" on your actual music files right away... but rather on copies to see if any of your collected meta data gets lost or transformed in any way.

I think this would be a good time to add "KS: Primary Output Device" to the Output device dropdown list.

Anybody else want this too?

Yep.

Thanks for properties box improvements, selectable read-only field makes tag edit easier. The copy button works like a charm too. Also it seems startup is a lot faster now for the first run and about 10% faster for any restart.

EDIT:There's percent statistic in the properties dialog if you select multiple files.
