What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· A modification in handling MusicBrainz ID tags was needed to avoid problems with falsely duplicate tracks.
· We fixed a weird behaviour when the "Use Music Location?" question is answered "Yes" on the first run.
· We now have worked around the QtWebkit ↔ GStreamer bug that caused frequent crashes on track start; this happened if the Wikipedia applet tried to load a page containing an audio tag.
· The database is now also created if the home directory contains non-ASCII characters.
· The Nepomuk Collection now also shows track numbers.
