Quod Libet 3.3 Highlights

(Quod Libet is a audio library tagger, manager, and player for Linux / Windows / OS X)

Not that much, but anyway, here are some screenshots (also see the full changelog):

OS X support thanks to Eric Le Lay (https://github.com/elelay)

Download: https://quodlibet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/downloads.html#macosx


../../_images/diacritic.png

By default all text searches will match variants with diacritic marks. Can also be enabled for exact searches and regex searches.

All of the below will find "Sigur Rós":

  • Sigur Ros
  • "Sigur Ros"d
  • /Sigur Ros/d

../../_images/extra_browser_filter.png

Secondary browser windows now have a filter menu as well and support the listed accelerators.


../../_images/headerbar_prefs.png
../../_images/headerbar_disable.png

Dialogs now use header bars (aka client side decoration) for consistency with builtin GTK+ dialogs. It’s possible to disable this for Quod Libet alone using the “Theme Switcher” plugin.


../../_images/lyricswindow.gif

A new lyrics window plugin which shows LyricWiki lyrics in a WebKitGtk window.


../../_images/rb_import.png

A simple Rhythmbox import plugin which transfers song statistics and ratings.


../../_images/operon_edit.png
../../_images/operon_fill.png

Two new operon commands:

  • “edit”: for editing tags with a text editor
  • “fill”: for filling tags using parts of the file path

../../_images/programmatic_toggle.png

Some small tagging improvements:

  • Toggle programmatic tags in the editor (replaygain, musicbrainz)
  • Possible to remove tags if some of the selected files don’t support it.
  • Multivalue support for some WMA tags

../../_images/coverart.png
  • Support for embedded images in Wavpack, Musepack and Monkey’s Audio
  • Quod Libet will now search all files in an album for embedded album art. As a result only one needs to have an image to be detected.

../../_images/replaygain_skip.png

The replaygain plugin gained an option to skip processing albums which are already tagged.


../../_images/sort_select.gif

The song list will finally try to preserve the position during re-sorting.


../../_images/win_cmd.png
../../_images/win_debug.png

An additional Windows executable "quodlibet-cmd.exe" can be used in the command line and allows to send commands to the running instance ("quodlibet-cmd.exe --start" for example).

Also Quod Libet will now always focus an existing application instance instead of starting a second one.
