23rd of April 2008 Jaikoz v2.4.0 Build 1045 released

This is a major release that adds many new features and improves the stability of Jaikoz.

New Features
  • Added support for the following fields Barcode, Label, ISRC, Conductor, Lyricist, Media, Remixer, Mood, Release Offical Url, Release Wikipedia Url, Release Discogs Url, Artist Offical Url, Artist Wikipedia Url, Artist Discogs Url for all formats
  • Barcode, Label, ISRC, Conductor, Lyricist, Remixer,Release Wikipedia Url and Release Discogs Url can be automtically populated from MusicBrainz.
  • Added a Delete Duplicates task. In the preferences you can specify that a duplicate is a track with the same MusicBrainz Id as another track, the same MusicIP Id as another, or the same Musicbrainz Id and MusicIP Id as another.
  • Added a Prefer Acoustic Id even if rating lower than meta match that is disabled by default, (Jaikoz previously acted as if this option was enabled). Keeping this option disabled will make it more likely that Jaikoz will use the same release for all tracks on one album.
  • Added Possible Matches must be within Track Duration option that is enabled by default (this works the same as Jaikoz previously). But if you disable this it will allow musicbrainz to return tracks that are outside the range of your track length. This is useful for picking up tracks where the track length has been entered incorrectly in Musicbrainz or where your encoding is inaccurate.
  • Your preferences are now preserved from your previous version of Jaikoz
  • Added Complete Italian translation
  • Added Dutch translation, this is not yet complete but feel it is still useful for Dutch speakers
  • Add Translate Foreign Artists to English option, this is most useful for artists that use non latin charcters such as Japanese or Chinese that cannot always be displayed properly

  • Add filter and highlighter to find records with the same musicbrainz Id AND Music IP Id .
