Release 20180301 - album tags view

This new release has a major new feature and a couple of important bug fixes. I advise you download and install!

The new feature is that we've added the tags view into each album page, so you can edit tags for the files in an album.

The bug fixes affect installation of finite fix licences and also avoid unwanted automation of track name accuracy changes. Both of these problems were introduced in the last release.

Album tags view

The Tags page is a useful fallback for when bliss's rules don't cover something you want to change. It's something of a Swiss Army tool inspired by "traditional" taggers such as MP3Tag; basically a grid of files with their fields which can be edited by hand.

I don't feel this is a particularly scalable approach to managing a large music library, but I recognise this feature is still useful (and I've used it myself in the past).

Album tags view

This hopefully makes for a less cumbersome experience than the Tags page, when just editing the tags for one album.
