v0.617 ongoing development..(BETA released April 27!)

v0.617 BETA released April 27!

This version will require a data table update, so I'm trying to make sure I add in requested fields now...

Here's a list of what will be new in v0.617:
BIGGEST CHANGE is adding 8 new file formats!
OggVorbis Audiofiles (OGG)
Monkey's Audiofiles (APE)
FLAC Audiofiles (FLA/FLAC)
WMA Files
Musepack Audiofiles / MPEGPLUS (MPP, MPC)
AAC Files
Shorten (SHN)
AIF Files

Tag formats (read-only):
APE Tags Version 1.0 and 2.0
OggVorbis Tags
MP4/M4A Comments

Already supported:
MP3-Files (MP1, MP2, MP3)
MP4/M4A Files
Windows Wavefiles (WAV)
Tags formats:
ID3 Tags Version 1.0, 1.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 (writeable)
Lyrics Tags Version 1.00 and 2.00
WAV Tags

Some of the file formats aren't that common -- it would be great if you could send me a few of the unusual formats for me to test before release

Winamp directly support ALL of these formats (either built-in or with a plugin) -- so I'm playing all these formats through Winamp!

Other changes
20 new user categories
Improvements to Detail View -- including support for new formats
10x faster copy -- so you can use MP3-Boss to copy to your mp3 player
Much better MusicIP support, with a registered key
More visual feedback during scanning
Longer fields - to eliminate those 'field too short' errors during scanning
Form background change to light-blue instead of green marble (easier to read)
HTML codes in artist name are translated to correct text
More than 100 new fields ... including:
Scan date & time
TrackArtist (Guest/Featured Artist)
Compilation (checkbox)
MD5 checksums -- full & music

Just in time! I was about to convert all my formats to MP3... I hope this version will hit the street soon!

Re: v0.617 ongoing development..(BETA released April 27!)

So far, I like the new version quite a bit -- I'm sure it will do a better job if you need to scan 10's of thousands of new files at a time.  I did some things to reduce memory use, and also made it much more flexible (so you can decide how many files to scan per segment, turn off the animated horse during scanning, default to form pictures off...).

The only annoying problem I've found so far is the registration code bug...I've already fixed it, but won't be able to release a new version until I head home from Singapore.

Still..if you're interested, I hope you'll take a look at the beta!  Just remember to save a copy of what you have now (since it always might be possible that you'll have to upgrade from v0.616 to the official release).
