The Washington Post covered the MusicBrainz Tagger in their weekend edition (reg required):
MusicBrainz does this by computing a music file’s digital fingerprint, based on its length and acoustic properties, then seeing if it can find a match in a growing online database of songs. The program will then work its magic, even reporting its confidence in less-than-exact matches. It was right in most of our tests, even when it reported that a song’s fingerprint matched only 55 percent of a title in the database.
Just wait until they see Picard… Speaking of which, I’m supposed to be working on that right now.

How is picard coming? I can’t wait to start using it!
There might be a release as early as this week! Stay tuned!
yes, but on which platform(s)?
This next release will be for Windows and Linux. Windows will have an installer, but Linux will be more do it yourself. In the near future there will also be a Mac client.
But the UNICODE stuff is kicking my butt right now, and it will be next week before Picard sees the light of day…
Can’t wait to try Picard. Will it have support for authenication proxies? Killing me I can’t use it at work with the password protected proxy and take advantaged of the quick internet connnection.
Thanks and keep up the good work,
