This week we've worked on the following:
- Aren converted the database save from Pickle to Shelve, in an attempt to make better use of memory and to speed up loading and saving. This changed the format of the music.db, so you'll need to remove this and rescan your library if you're following the weekly tarballs. Just rm ~/.local/share/exaile/music.db
- The addition of the "tagcovers" plugin. This will search for album art embedded in id3 tags of mp3 files.
- Album compilation support: If there is more than one artist in the same directory with the same album name, it's marked as a compilation. They will show up under "Various Artists" (as well as just under the artist) in the collection panel, and will be treated as one album where the album art manager is concerned.
