Picard 2.7.3 fixes macOS packages

Picard 2.7.3 fixes a packaging regression for macOS, which caused the app to be reported as damaged when trying to launch it. This affected especially users of macOS 10.13, see PICARD-2395 for details.

There are no other changes in this release. If you are running Picard on a different operating system or if you are using macOS but could start Picard without an error message than you don’t need to upgrade.

The latest release is available for download on the Picard download page.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-11-29

Another set of mostly small fixes and improvements, of which the most significant change might be that editors will need to explicitly confirm that they want to add a “disc 1” or “CD 1” medium title; this should save editors some cleanup work in the future. A report for this issue has also been added to help cleaning up the ones already there.

A new release of MusicBrainz Docker is also available that matches this update of MusicBrainz Server. See the release notes for update instructions.

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-11-15

Just a few bugs and improvements this time – the most interesting change might be that it is now possible to see if we have cover art for a release group from release group lists (including the artist overview page).

MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-10-25

This release includes a bunch of fixes for collections, URLs and relationship display. It also further improves the external links editor thanks to yyoung, by adding highlights to indicate what is being removed, added or edited in the same way as in other relationship editors. Additionally, the last of the edit detail pages has now been converted to React.

Picard 2.6.4 released

Picard 2.6.4 is a maintenance release for Picard 2.6. It contains a couple of bug fixes, including possible crashes and startup issues on Windows. Users of Picard 2.6 are highly recommended to update.

The latest release is available for download on the Picard download page.

Thanks a lot to everyone who gave feedback and reported issues.

What’s new?

Bugfixes

  • [PICARD-2199] – Saving ID3 ratings fails, if rating e-mail contains non latin-1 characters
  • [PICARD-2200] – Copy and pasting function names from inline scripting docs can copy Unicode left-to-right mark
  • [PICARD-2230] – Picard fails to start on Windows if the hostname contains non-ASCII characters and browser integration is enabled
  • [PICARD-2269] – “TypeError: arguments did not match any overloaded call” with Python 3.10
  • [PICARD-2274] – Picard 2.6.3 crashes when track is removed or moved during lookup

Known issues

  • On Windows if the computer name contains non-ASCII characters the browser integration will not work. The only known workaround is to rename the computer so the name consists only of ASCII characters. While Picard 2.6.3 would crash in such a situation when starting, we fixed this crash in Picard 2.6.4. But the root cause is actually a bug in Python 3, which we will solve by an upgrade to Python 3.8.10 with the upcoming release of Picard 2.7. See PICARD-2230 for details.
  • Copy and pasting code from the built-in script documentation Window when using Picard with Arabic or Hebrew language can cause invisible Unicode left-to-right mark control characters to be copied. This can have unintended side effects in your script. This will be properly handled with Picard 2.7, where control characters will be made visible in the script editor. For details see PICARD-2200 and PICARD-2204.

A beta release for the upcoming Picard 2.7 will be available soon.
