Note – There are no changes for Linux users, so they can safely skip this release if they want.
Given the massive feedback about the shortcomings of the Windows and macOS versions of Picard, we decided to do a minor release addressing some of the issues with our executables.
As usual, you can find the latest downloads on Picard’s Website.
The change-log is as follows –
- [PICARD-1283] – Fingerprinting not working on macOS in Picard 2.0
- [PICARD-1286] – Error creating SSL context on Windows
- [PICARD-1290] – Improve slow start up times by moving to a non single file exe
- [PICARD-1291] – Use an installer for Picard 2.x windows exe
Basically, the Windows executable is now a proper installer and some missing SSL dependencies are bundled with it.
The macOS builds also include the missing AcoustID fingerprinting binary.
The startup time for both the Windows and macOS version has been improved as well.
Have fun tagging your files!

Windows version now works(no more API connect errors) and the installer gives it much more polished experience! Plugins also appear to be working again as expected.
Nice quick work.
I’d like to write a Picard Plugin but unsure where to start, is there some documentation somewhere or way of debuging during development?
