Software Update: Mp3tag 3.11

Florian Heidenreich has released version 3.11 of Mp3tag. With this program, the meta tags of the most common music formats can be modified. Support is available for ID3v1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, mp4, wma, Vorbis comments and Ape tags. Furthermore, the file names can be modified on the basis of those tags and playlists can be generated. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:


  • Added support for new Windows 11 context menu. †#54629#54833
