I've just released Mp3tag v2.53!
With this version Mp3tag now uses a different method for drag & drop of cover art, which does not require re-encoding the cover image. Instead, the original image is used whenever possible. In addition, support for drag & drop of cover art from Google Chrome has been added.
Furthermore, the release year (ID3v2.3 frame TYER, displayed as YEAR) and release date (ID3v2.3 frame TDAT, displayed as DATE) are now combined in YEAR and displayed as YYYY-MM-DD. This improves compatibility with other applications (e.g., foobar2000) and provides a consistent view with all revisions of the ID3v2 specification.

Enjoy and be well
