minor complaint about last update related to the freedb server

I had some extra CDDB/freedb servers for other DBs added to the list, and the last update just wiped all of them instead of just replacing freedb.org with freedb.dbpoweramp.com.
I'll have to add them again. It's annoying, but no big deal I guess. Just chiming in for whatever it's worth.

While I'm at it. I would like to ask for the freedb tagger to be able to query all of them at the same time instead of having to chose one, as they usually contain different releases from each other, often forcing me to change it and make a new query. It would be nice if I could just query all of them at the same time and see all the results at once.

Thanks for your feedback.

Part 1 has been addressed. I did not realize that people used alternate freedb/cddb servers much. Wiping of such settings is not an acceptable behavior and has been addressed in beta 2 - unfortunately it can only import old settings if you skipped beta 1.
The new behavior is to add freedb.dbpoweramp.com on top of the list and erase any references to freedb.org, when reading old settings.

As for part 2, may I know what other servers are you using? I'm looking into reworking freedb support for fb2k 1.6, I'd like to test the exact scenario of different servers returning different information.

I used to have the musicbrainz server, but that stopped working a while ago and nowadays it's mainly VGMdb.

You can access our database using the freedb protocol through the following addresses:

    English
    http://vgmdb.net:80/cddb/en
    Japanese (SJIS)
    http://vgmdb.net:80/cddb/ja
    Japanese (UTF8)
    http://vgmdb.net:80/cddb/ja.utf8
    Romaji
    http://vgmdb.net:80/cddb/ja-Latn

For compatibility you can also use '~cddb'. For more information, please consult the freedb thread.

I feel like there was something else, but I can't remember. Probably didn't use it much and maybe it's gone too.

Preview of the updated freedb component-
https://foobar2000.org/temp/foo_freedb2.dll  ( copy on top of original DLL in components of a foobar2000 v1.5.x install )
All configured servers are now queried, results are shown grouped by server.
Also, some 13+ years old glitches have been fixed.
