It means that we finally have a decent unicode support in freedb. Yay!

It is nice to see freedb develop (last additions were Genre and Year a few years ago).

UTF-8 allows non ansi characters (read any foreign), to be stored in a standard ansi string. This allows compatability with such things as freedb which. If you have a player does not support UTF-8, you will see two characters appear instead of the one. ie  dĕf  might be shown as d-█f
