Helium 14.4 beta 1 available

The main goal with this update is to introduce some major changes to our tag-engine:

  • Fully changed WMA handling. This applies both to reading of audio properties and tags and writing of tags.
  • Fully changed OggVorbis handling. OggVorbis now supports:
    -Segmented Ogg-files
    -Opus-files
    -Picture support when tagging

Apart from the above, several improvements and optimizations have been made to the tag ending.
The changes to the tag-engine are implemented to make the engine fully cross-platform compatible.

Apart from the above changes, database-drivers have been updated and other minor improvements has also been implemented.

Working with the beta version

Please note that this version is not 100% tested yet, if you find anything that does not seems to work as it should, please let us know.

If you submit an issue, please be sure to include as much reproduction information as possible so that we can assist you as quickly as possible.

This version does WILL NOT perform database upgrades, meaning that it WILL work with the current official version of Helium 14 and Streamer 4. We recommend you to take a backup of your database before working with this version.

When working WMA and OggVorbis file, be sure that you have a backup of your files since the handling of these formats has changed.
