Release 20160525

Here's a new release with a few bug fixes and small improvements. We've fixed a permissions problem when organizing music over a network, added padding to <discnumber> folder and file names, and we can now fingerprint DSF files too!

We've had a few reports of file permissions problems from people managing their music library on Windows devices, across the network to a NAS. bliss was reporting false negatives; that it could not write to music files, when the files could be opened in other software and changed just fine.

We tracked it down to a change in the tagging library bliss uses. We fixed it in the library and contributed this back to the project while importing these changes to bliss.

A reminder

This update will be the last one that is hosted in VortexBox's 2.2 repositories. If you want to continue using VB 2.2 with bliss you will have to install on the command line.

More improvements

Now some more minor changes:

  • The fingerprinter can now fingerprint DSF files.
  • When fixing capitalisation problems, only fix those files and tags that have a problem, rather than all tracks in an album.
  • The <discnumber> token can now be parameterised to force padding: <discnumber:nn>.
  • Allow embedded artwork to be removed when both an ID3v2 and an ID3v1 tag are present.

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 using Windows and you don't know whether your version of Java is version 7 or later, in app update is not recommended when updating from version 20151013 or earlier, because bliss now requires Java 7 or later. The Windows installer now bundles Java 8, and so download of the full installer is recommended.
