    Release Notes: This version focuses on transitioning the autotagger to the new version of the MusicBrainz database (called NGS). This transition brings with it a number of long-overdue improvements: most notably, predictable behavior when tagging multi-disc albums and integration with the new Acoustid acoustic fingerprinting technology. The importer can also now tag incomplete albums when you’re missing a few tracks from a given release. Two other new plugins are also included with this release: one for assigning genres and another for ReplayGain analysis.

      Release Notes: Manual tag editing, updating the database from on-disk tags, moving/copying files, re-tagging files you've tagged previously, incremental imports (just point beets at a directory and it will only import the new stuff you've added since last time), and an experimental Web interface.

        Release Notes: This release focuses on a large number of small fixes and improvements that turn beets into a well-oiled, music-devouring machine.

          Release Notes: This release of beets brings two significant new features. First, beets now has first-class support for "singleton" tracks. Previously, it was only really meant to manage whole albums, but many of us have lots of non-album tracks to keep track of alongside our collections of albums. So now beets makes it easy to tag, catalog, and manipulate your individual tracks. Second, beets can now (optionally) embed album art directly into file metadata rather than only storing it in a "file on the side."

            Release Notes: This release's focus is on better support for "various artists" releases. These albums can be treated differently via the new [paths] config section and the autotagger is better at handling them. It also includes a number of oft-requested improvements to the beet command-line tool, including several new configuration options and the ability to clean up empty directory subtrees.

              Release Notes: This version consists primarily of bug fixes and other small improvements. It's in preparation for a more featureful release in beta 7. The most important issue involves correct ordering of autotagged albums. Also, a new "quiet import" option is available, and support for WavPack and Musepack formats has been added.

                Release Notes: This version of beets focuses on increasing the accuracy of the autotagger. The main addition is an included plugin that uses acoustic fingerprinting to match based on the audio content (rather than existing metadata). Additional heuristics were also added to the metadata-based tagger that should make it more reliable. This release also greatly expands the capabilities of beets' plugin API. A host of other little features and fixes are also rolled into this release.

                  Release Notes: This thrilling new release of beets focuses on making the tagger more usable in a variety of ways. First and foremost, it should now be much faster: the tagger now uses a multi-threaded algorithm by default. Second, the tagger output now uses a little bit of ANSI terminal coloring to make changes stand out. This way, it should be faster to decide what to do with a proposed match: the more red you see, the worse the match is. Finally, the tagger can be safely interrupted and restarted later at the same point. 'b' can be entered to aBort at any prompt to stop the tagging process and save its progress.
