Mp3tag v2.98 released

Mp3tag v2.98 released

I've just released Mp3tag v2.98 and wanted to take the opportunity to detail some of the new features and changes for you.

Discogs tag sources with multiple search criteria

The existing album-only search for Discogs often produced too many results or results that were not totally relevant for the current search. This is why many users wished for multiple search criteria for metadata-lookup from Discogs. The current version adds new tag sources for Discogs and Discogs Cover Art, namely:

  • Search by Artist + Album
  • Search by Artist + Title
  • Search by Artist + Year

Improvements for Web Sources Framework

The Web Sources Framework now supports up to three different search criteria and has support for reusing tag sources to reduce code duplication.

There are many other changes and fixes. See the changelog below and definitely get the new version.
