Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Puddletag is an audio tag editor that uses a spreadsheet-like layout, in order to enable the users to easily edit tags. Among others, it has support for extracting tag info from filenames, renaming files based on tags, by using pattern matching. The latest version available is Puddletag 1.0.4, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:
- Regular expression parsing
- Discogs API no longer working. Fixed it so that searches can be done using Discogs release id only.
- Fixed comparison of boolean values in format strings.
- Scripting function escaping wasn’t working.
- All config options are stored as JSON. Should fix issues with not being able to store certain values.
- $to_num scripting function. Converts text to numbers for easy comparison.
- AIFF support.
- Configuration is stored using XDG dirs. Settings are in ~/.config/puddletag and ~/.local/share/puddletag
