Releases of MusicBrainz Tagger

0.4.7 current version, released on: 2021-05-12

0.4.7 - 2021-05-12
  • New option "Write ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE to DATE". Check this if you don't care that the release date of your copy of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours was a 2008 reissue and instead always want the original 1977 date to show.
  • When a release has multiple labels attached to it, they will all be written as multi-value tags.
  • When searching by artist/album, component will attempt to strip release "descriptors" from the album title. Ex.: "Master of Puppets (Deluxe Edition)" will become "Master of Puppets".
  • Aborting a search no longer displays any "User Abort" popups.
  • Improved some dialogs
  • Squashed several crashes

0.4.6 released on: 2020-05-17

0.4.6 - 2020-05-17
  • Drastically sped up the speed of requests to MB by making API calls in separate threads. 1-sec between each request is still enforced due to MB API rate limit
  • Added caching to all MB API calls. This required adding a Least Recently Used cache to the program, and then checking for the request in the cache before making a request to MB for the resource. The cache will hold 100 entries and entries get marked stale after 60 minutes.
  • Added options to skip writing MB IDs for albumid, discid, trackid
  • Search by release-group ID for those of us who don't write albumid
  • Tagging dialog now usable on small resolution screens
