Software update: Mp3tag 2.35

With the help of Mp3tag it is possible to adjust metadata of various audio formats. For example, it is possible to rename files based on the tag(s) and the tags of music files can be supplemented by looking up all data via an online database. Mp3tag supports Advanced Audio Coding, Free Lossless Audio Codec, MPEG Layer 3, Ogg Vorbis and Windows Media Audio formats, among others.
