This release concentrates on some improvements to track name and number fixing.

In some cases, multiple suggestions can be made for a particular track name or number. This happens with different album releases; sometimes, for example, remixes are used in different releases and this affects the track name. And, of course, in different sales territories with different languages or scripts a given track name can change. This, combined with what some might term the “canonical” release, means there are multiple suggestions for any one track name.

One fix for this is to use linked releases to choose a particular release or releases to tie an album in your collection to. However, in most cases I find collectors prefer to allow all the metadata to make it more likely something will be found to fill in missing information.

The bug we have fixed was that where multiple suggestions were found, bliss would actually write each different value, overwriting the previous value. This would not only mean extra writes, it also meant that even the less likely results were chosen. This only affected the “missing” rule, where a track number or name was missing.

We’ve now fixed this to strictly write once and only the top scored result.
