A new version of the FLAC codec has been released! When ripping CDs I encourage the use of FLAC because it means a lossless copy of the CD's audio is taken, making for a higher quality, more flexible music collection. The new version of FLAC adds a whole host of new features... although it's arguable whether the mainstream listener will notice much difference.

I've made reference to bliss's assessment/fix cycle before without really explaining it. I suppose that once you're used to working on something every day the terminology you use to describe it seems second nature. So I'm sometimes guilty of a lack of verbosity!

Also included are some performance improvements!

I recently enjoyed a discussion with a user of bliss, where he described what he saw as the problems with classical music tagging. These boil down to problems discussed elsewhere on this blog, but his visualisation of the problems really hit home.

The current top voted idea on the bliss ideas forum is The ability to monitor more than one location on a computer. bliss currently only allows one folder to be specified as the root music folder within which all your music files must reside.
Why is owning and storing multiple music libraries desirable or required, and why does bliss currently only allow one root folder?
