EasyTAG 2.1.9 Brings Numerous Improvements After One Year of Development

This new release comes with a preliminary Windows build

After almost one year of hard work, David King was proud to announce this past weekend that version 2.1.9 of his EasyTAG open source tag editor software, which supports MP3, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis audio files, is now available for download with numerous new features and bugfixes.

EasyTAG fans rejoice, as your favorite audio file tag editor software has been updated to version 2.1.9, a release that introduces many general stability and refactoring improvements, a DocBook XML man page, and fixes lots of memory leaks and invalid read fixes.

EasyTAG 2.1.9 no longer splits Ogg and FLAC files by default, removes the old Ogg Vorbis comment compatibility (COMMENT and XMMS fields), fixes some GTK+ 3 deprecation issues thanks to Florian Müllner, fixes a crash when the MusicBrainz CDDB search fails, and replaces most mini buttons with GtkEntry icons.

Moreover, this release adds many fixes when building EasyTAG for MinGW, uses GtkDialog for child windows, replaces the old libmpg123 library with the id3lib one for reading the MPEG header, and ports the app to GIO/GFile thanks to Abhinav Jangda.

In order to better fit with the GNOME HIG, the menus have been rearranged and the keyboard accelerators have been adjusted. In addition, EasyTAG 2.1.9 uses GApplication for application life cycle, replaces various custom icons with the themed equivalents, adds total tracks support thanks to Mathias Reineke, and improves the FLAC ID3 tag thanks to Adrian Bunk.

Last but not least, the following translations have been updated in the brand new EasyTAG 2.1.9 release: Portuguese, Czech, Turkish, Catalan, Hungarian, German, Lithuanian, Russian, Slovenian, Serbian, Polish, and Spanish.
