Mp3tag v3.06a released

Mp3tag v3.06 released

This new version is mainly about spring-cleaning with lots of improvements and fixes and I want to take the opportunity to detail some of the new features and changes for you.

It's also first version that requires Windows 7 as a minimum operating system. It was about time :slight_smile:

Retry for Tag Sources

If no results are returned for a certain search at Tag Sources, it's now possible to retry and having the previous query already filled in. No more entering the same information twice (or trice!).
I've also added the option to retry for error case, e.g., when the internet connection of the servers are flaky.

Option to disable auto-sizing of columns in Tag Source results

So far, the column width for Tag Sources results has been decided based on the content that was returned from the query. While it always displays the full content, it also means that some columns are outside the dialog width and scrolling is needed. You can now disable the auto-sizing of column via the context menu of the column header.

Undo via Ctrl+Z in Tag Panel fields

This was quite some time in the making (I've received the first bug report on that back in Jan 2014). You can now undo text entry in Tag Panel fields without undoing the last tag-write or rename operation.

Actions and Tag Sources available via context menu

The file list context menu now also has the Actions and Tag Sources available via submenus. Sometimes it's just faster to trigger them from the context menu.

I've just released Mp3tag v3.06a as a hotfix release for Mp3tag v3.06. I've introduced an issue where using the freedb lookup (yes, it's still used and supported) resulted in an undefined application state (sometimes freeze, sometimes crash).

Thanks to the handful of people who reported this issue!
