To go along with the recently updated server, we released version 0.5.1 of Picard today. The downloads links are:
- picard-0.5.1.tar.gz (*nix tarball)
- picard-setup-0.5.1.exe (windows installer — XP, 2000, NT, Me, 98, 95)
To make all the changes happen inside of Picard, we also needed to release a new version of libtunepimp:
- libtunepimp-0.4.1.tar.gz (*nix tarball)
Important note for Picard users: Picard 0.5.1 introduces a new naming variable %albumartist (and %albumartistsortname) to support the new features on the server. Individual tracks on single artist albums may now be attributed to different artists which will cause these tracks to be saved in different locations on your hard drive if you use %artist in your naming string right now. You should replace all instances of %artist and %sortname with %albumartist and %albumartistsortname, respectively, if you want to keep organizing your files in the same manner as you did prior to the 0.5.1 release.
Thanks very much to Lukáš Lalinský, for taking on this release singlehandedly!
