This is a large bug fix release including full Catalina support. We’ve also added a new notification box to allow you to see, at a glance, the quantity of non-compliant albums and get easy links to fix those albums.
In the meantime we’ve been working on the New Inbox further - and we’ve included a screenshot of what we’ve done so far!
Plus, there’s a bunch of bug fixes. This drop is a big ‘un!

2019 was a landmark year for the bliss project; it turned ten years old!
Development started in March 2009 and lasted eight months; the first sale came a couple of weeks later. Since then, we’ve gradually added features, improved UI and supported more and more devices.
Even though I’m constantly on the look out for new projects in home media management, bliss is still my “baby” and there are so many things I want to do!

We’re all individuals. But sometimes being pigeon-holed can be to our advantage.
I’ve slowly realised how my interest in music; its listening, its storage and its curation, can be fragmented by online “tribes”.
Tribes are common across the major social media platforms. Groups or Pages on Facebook, Subreddits on Reddit, subject based hashtagging on Twitter, Instagram and the like.
Being of a technical bent, and inherently distrusting of Facebook, I’ve tended to rely on Reddit as one repository where I return for discussions amongst “my tribes”.

The release also includes a number of privacy improvements, such is Apple's current focus on security. This includes app notarization, whereby Apple verify an app downloaded and run on macOS has been verified as being safe. Unfortunately, old versions of bliss (including the next version, currently in beta) have not been notarized, so getting them to run requires a workaround.
