A quick tip on how to move your bliss rule settings to a different computer...
As I add more and more rules to bliss, it becomes more and more desirable to keep a record of what your settings are, because recreating them becomes harder the more rules you have! If you purchase a new computer, rebuild a server, or even just install bliss for a different user on an existing computer the settings from your previous install will not be transferred.

bliss's genre consolidation rule is a powerful way of getting a handle on an out-of-control computer audio genre list. bliss has a set of default genres from which you can choose, but what if you want to add your own that isn't in the list?

A small, earlier than expected release with an important bug fix.
The main focus of this release is an important fix to bliss's rule assessment/fix procedure. In the last release we included a fix to ensure that multiple reasons for non-compliance get fixed when those multiple reasons were both found by the same rule. Before it would be a two step process, with you, the user, having to click a manual response or invoke a rescan on the album in question.

The growing interest in computer audio amongst audiophiles is beginning to raise questions of musical metadata and how it relates to sample rate. A recent note in my inbox asks:
I read most of your blogs and wonder if you could write about tagging 16bit versus 24bit files. Should there be any difference in the tag? Or in file/folder naming maybe? [...] I’m using FLAC and MP3 only. If I have a FLAC version I will delete the MP3 album from my library. But with 16bit versus 24bit that’s different. For example; I would like to keep the original 16bit Nirvana Nevermind if I had a 24bit version as well.
