Announcing python-musicbrainzngs, release 0.6

From the better late than never department…

After more than 2 years we’ve finally released version 0.6 of python-musicbrainzngs, a library for accessing the Musicbrainz webservice from python.

After such a long time we have perhaps too many new changes to describe. Some major changes include:

  • Better handling of authentication private user collections
  • Support for loading all types of user collections (artist, event, place, recording, release, work)
  • Work attributes
  • Support for the Cover Art Archive
  • Support for Events, Instruments, Places, and Series

And numerous other bug fixes and small changes. See the CHANGES file  for more information.

This release contains contributions by Alastair Porter, Corey Farwell, Ian McEwen, Jérémie Detrey, Johannes Dewender, Pavan Chander, Rui Gonçalves, Ryan Helinski, Shadab Zafar, and Wieland Hoffmann. Thank you everyone!

 

The new version can be downloaded from github, pypi, or installed with pip

    I would like to add the (what MusicBrainz calls) tag Grouping – I see this carried over from other files I tagged using MP3 ID3X – a Cocoa based app that ran under Snow Leopard. I can only modify it on files for which it has already existed. I can’t find a way to force this tag field to always show up on any file. Thanks.

    Hi, This is probably not the right place to ask a question like this. You should ask it on the MetaBrainz forums instead.
