Release Notes: ID3 chapters and table-of-contents support. A new plugin for setting the podcast bits on/off (necessary for iTunes). ID3 POPM support. A new --remove-frame option. An improved statistics plugin. Plugin API enhancements. Better support for malformed ID3 tags, UTC timestamp support, etc.
Release Notes: The command line script now supports plugins. The default plugin is the classic interface for tag reading and editing. Plugins were provided for writing NFO files, displaying lame/xing headers, jabber tunes, and library statistics. The module name is now 'eyed3' for better conformance to standards. A new tag interface based on properties was added. ID3 date frame support was improved, and 2.3<->2.4 conversion and other conversions in general were improved. Native support was provided for many more ID3 frame types. Installation with 'pip' is now supported. MIME type and Unicode support was improved. This version is not API compatible with 0.6.x releases.
Release Notes: This release supports disc number frames, adds %Y (year) and %G (genre) substitution variables for file renames, improves XML (--jep-118) escaping and a new output (--rfc822) format, makes --rename no longer clobber files, and adds the new option --itunes to write only iTunes-accepted genres. If available, the "magic" module will be used to determine mimetypes when the filename is not enough. --set-encoding can be used along with a version conversion arg to apply a new encoding to the new tag. Less crashing now occurs when invalid user text frames or invalid BPM values are encountered.
Release Notes: Invalid utf16-encoded strings are now worked around. All genres are shown in -list-genres. A workaround was made for invalid PLCT (i.e. playcount) frames. All tracks are shown in -nfo output. Support was added for URL frames W??? and WXXX. A program exit code is now produced by the "eyeD3" command line tool.
Release Notes: A typo with sysnc/unsync data was fixed. An infinite loop when dealing with malformed APIC frames was fixed. A Tag.removeUserTextFrame helper was added.
