Musique 1.1 released
I’m happy to announce the release of Musique 1.1! This release brings many improvements. I tried to listen to user feedback and set priorities accordingly.
Last.fm scrobbling finally comes to Musique with a streamlined UI. I hope you’ll appreciated the effort I made trying to avoid clutter and keep the app “preferences-free”.
The music collection scanning has seen various improvements. It is now much faster. At least 2x or 3x faster. Photos are found for a greater number of artists. Track titles are now corrected automatically using data from Last.fm. Album covers are loaded from image files following common naming conventions such as “cover.jpg”, “front.jpg” and “folder.jpg”. Album covers embedded in audio files are also supported. Once the scanning process is complete, remote album covers and artist photos will start downloading in the background.
Lyrics embedded in MP3 files are now supported.
Album release year inside tags has now precedence over Last.fm often incorrect release year.
On Windows, an important bug causing duplicate tracks after a rescan has been fixed. On the Mac, the UI has been enhanced by using the native, rounded search box and a new style for the sliders. Also application menu items such as “Quit” and “About” should be properly localized for languages other than English.
Enjoy and spread the word about Musique!
