Update of V3 tags

Is there a schedule for when update of V3 tags will be available?

I have a load of updates that I want to write back.

Re: Update of V3 tags

I will add at least limited support for ID3v2 tags in the next (or next + 1) beta -- at least those items that are the same as the ID3v1 tags.

Re: Update of V3 tags

Any idea when that is likely to be?

Re: Update of V3 tags

I've been taking a bit of a break to see if I would get anymore bug reports from the v0.602 beta (there have been a couple reports without enough info for me to reproduce the problem).  So far v0.602 seems pretty good.

I'll try to shoot for a end-of-July to mid-August release.  Sound OK?

Re: Update of V3 tags

How is the ID3V2 tag support going?

Any idea when you are likely to be "shipping"?

Re: Update of V3 tags

I've added some ID3v2 support...but only the ID3v1 items (using the ID3v1 tagging form).  Title, Artist, Album, Year, Comment, Genre

Are there specific extra items I should add?

I'm still trying to figure out how to best support rewriteable CD disks.

Re: Update of V3 tags

I donít really understand the difference between the ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags.

I a file already has some ID3V2 tags and I try to update the artist what is the result?

Are all the ID3V2 tags removed and only the ID3V1 tags remain or is it more complex than that?

Are the images different?

Re: Update of V3 tags

With the new version, if you update the tags -- but the ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags will be synchronized.

The main difference is that ID3v1 tags are limited to 30chars for each item.  ID3v2 can be unlimited lengths.  So...a 255 char comment will be stored in full.

There aren't any images in ID3v1 tags.  I won't delete any of the ID3v2 info -- just update the stuff that is also in ID3v1.
