Release 20150423

This new version includes a number of assorted improvements.

First up, I've rewritten some of the underlying parts of bliss to use a new database engine. This is due to a few reports I've received of database corruption seemingly occurring after long periods of using bliss. After a couple of weeks testing by those affected, we seem to have fixed these problems, so that's good news.

Further improvements

More improvements:

  • Exempt roman numerals and common name prefixes ("La", "De" etc) from case rules
  • Sped up tag lookup
  • Fixed the count of non compliant albums due to non-compliant file paths
  • Fixed the layout of the help and album detail pages
  • Fixed the <track artist> file organisation token to cope with cases where there's an album artist but no track artist

Downloading and installing

You can download from the downloads page. After you click through, installation instructions are available on the page following download.

If you are updating from a version older than a few months old, version 20141027 to be precise, in app update is not recommended for this release, because of a fixed Java 8 incompatibility which is only resolved with a full re-installation.

Thanks to frankieleon for the image above.
