What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· User-customizable character replacement rules for filenames
· Now you can define you own rules for the filename character replacement. Rules for slash and colon are mandatory and cannot be deleted.
· Supported importing Sd2f disc images (from Toast, for example)
· Useful when you want to convert existing images ripped with Toast. You can also get a Sd2f output plugin from this page, but it is not recommended to use Sd2f as an image format because it cannot contain as much information as cue sheet, and the information is stored in the resource fork.
· Created a new "Fila Naming" preference tab, and moved some existing items to there
· When using MusicBrainz database, get track's own metadata instead of the recording's one if exists
· Added an interface to change the process priority
· Useful when you want to suppress CPU usage of XLD and there are other CPU hungry tasks running.
· Added an option for FLAC encoder to suppress writing ReplayGain tags
