=== Differences between Xml output and New Json Output

  • All list elements removed and their attributes displayed as elements of the parent
  • If attribute name could clash with attribute of child of parent rename. i.e both disc-list and track-list elements of medium can contain count element so renamed to disc-count and track-count
  • All elements that were stored in the list now stored in json array and pluralised i.e tag ->tags, release ->releases
  • Some renaming is not that simple, i.e medium -> media,
  • Name-Credit within ArtistCredit has been anonymized
  • Data displayed in Xml for backwards compatability not shown in json , i.e release-group type attribute
