Please note that this is a BETA release. You can download latest stable release (0.6.0) from http://musicbrainz.org/wd/PicardDownload.
This version of Picard was build using libofa, a preliminary version of libtunepimp and the Python XML Webservice binding:
- libofa: The Open Fingerprint Architecture library from MusicDNS.
- libtunepimp: This ALPHA version of libtunepimp. This version can create PUIDs, the new acousting fingerprint ID, and that is about it. To create PUIDs with the examples/puid program, you need to register for a clientID at MusicDNS.org.
- python-musicbrainz2: The new Python XML web service client, version 0.2.2
A lot of these releases are still quite rough. We'll be adding more documentation and cleaning things up in the coming days.
Q: I don't get this. How am I supposed to use the new PUIDs? When I klick on "Analyze" the track gets moved to the "New Files" folder and then to the "Ungrouped Files" Folder. And then nothing happens. Should this not load a MB page with the PUID? Even if I klick on "Lookup" after a successful analysis (i.e. a PUID has been generated), Picard just launches a normal lookup. How is this supposed to work? --DonRedman
A: If a PUID has been generated (you can see it next to the file name in the status bar) and Picard moved the file to the "Unclustered files", then it means that MB doesn't know about this PUID yet. In this case use text search to find the right album, drag&drop the file to the right track and click on the "Submit tagged information to MusicBrainz button" button. --LuKz
