Picard 2.0.4 released

This is a minor release that fixes a lot of issues, most notably few annoying crashes and a bunch of audio file formats-specific bugs.

I’d like to thank Philip Wolfer (outsidecontext/phw) for the fantastic job he did on this release.

As usual, you can find the latest downloads on Picard’s Website.

  1. Just downloaded the new release today. It keeps crashing anytime I add mp3 files to be sorted.

  2. Sorry, can’t be bothered to make an account right now, but this is the problem:

    Before 2.0.4, you could use shortcuts like Ctrl+Y/U/L to do things like scan, group or look up files in Picard. These shortcuts have been removed (no reaction, also no indication in the menu that these exist). I’m pretty sure this changed from 2.0.3 to 2.0.4. I’m using the x64 version on Windows 7 with all the updates.

  3. Also forgot this: change the sorting by clicking on “Title” or “Duration” at the top so that it switches through three states (sort ascending/descending/not at all). Right now, if I click on it (I sometimes do accidentally), the album list will forever be sorted, which can be annoying when you’ve got a lot of releases.
