Changed:

  • Improved ID3v2 specification compliance by adding terminating 0x00 for text strings.
  • Randomizing a filtered file list by clicking on first column header resulted in resetting of list contents.
  • Missing breadcrumb links in help topic for “Configuration > Tags > Mapping” and missing link from “Configuration > Tags”
  • Converter ‘Tag – Filename’ treated paths that were built from field values ​​containing slash characters as relative.
