|My personal thanks to Bernd, Roy and Darryl for registration. Yes, you read well, till now (one month since
release of 4.60) I've sold 3 licenses total. I have to say that I was always in doubts about shareware concept,
but this is even worse than expected and it makes me sad.
Results of the ID3v2/Lyrics3 tags poll: Total 235 votes received. 53% voted for ID3v2 as prime tag,
24% would like to just read ID3v2 and save Lyrics3 tag, 14% wants to save ID3v2 as copy of Lyrics3 tag, 9% says that
Lyrics3 tag is enough. I am suprised that quite a lot of people wishes support for ID3v2... but it has probably
something to do with support of this tag in Winamp and I see that I should do something in this area as well.
Beta 1 of version 4.70 is almost done with complete support for track# in ID3v1.1 tag, duplicate finder and other
small improvements. I should be able to release final 4.70 till end of year. But... if I will not get another
registrations, I will close this project and 4.70 will be the last version ever.
Please register, I need your support!
| There is an interesting thread about MP3 Manager, Winamp and
tags ID3v1.1, ID3v2 and Lyrics3 on the MP3
Manager Web Forum. Go and add your thoughts!
Exactly 8 months from last version 4.51, MP3 Manager 4.60 is here. As pre-announced, MP3 Manager is now
becoming shareware. As I said on November 7th, I don't expect to be rich of MP3 Manager - reason is that
I have to pay unexpectadly a lot of money for a flat. It is very unpleasant for me to move to shareware, but
I see it as the only way to get some additional money... and to keep MP3 Manager alive at the same time.
I am trying to keep full functionality for non-registered users - there is no locked feature in 4.60.
This is fair to you, I think - please be fair too and register.
Download 4.60 now. The Filtering is in, as promised!
Beta 2 of MP3 Manager 4.60 is now in private testing and release can be expected during 1-2 weeks. That's good news,
I think. But bad news is, that it will be released as nonagged shareware. This decision came after almost 4 years
of making MP3 Manager for free. Those of you who know me may understand that this decision has been painful
for me and it has been done from serious reasons (I really don't expect to get rich of it). But until 4.60 will
be released, get 4.51 still for free!
Beta 1 of MP3 Manager 4.60 has been released to private testing today. I think you can expect final 4.60
in November. It will (really!) include advanced track filtering. I think you should be impatient:-)
Apology for no updates on both program and site since April. I am so busy... but I hope I will continue
programming latest August.
I've got another mirror at MP3.CZ. Thanks!
I found that professional burning software "Nero - Burning Rom" reads title
and artist for CD Text from extended fields of Lyrics3 Tag, when burning audio CD from mp3 files. Isn't it
success for Lyrics3 Tag?
I am pleased to announce that there is French help translation available in help download
page. Thanks, Alex!
As you probably see yourself, Lyrics3 Plugin is becoming quite old and is not updated anymore by its author.
But nevermind! There is another Winamp plugin available... and looks like native Winamp screen (it can be even
skinned!). I am happy, that I can add link to Winamp Lyrics plugin into
And what about development of MP3 Manager? Of course, I am continuing... Just started work on advanced
track filtering which will appear in version 4.60. You will be able to temporarily hide tracks which don't
meet filtering criterias!
MP3 Manager is 3 years old today! Really, first public version was released on March 26, 1997 - you can check it in version history page of help.
First non-English help file released - translated into Czech by me. New help file
download page has been created. As well English version of help has been slightly
corrected - some old forgotten informations updated etc. Both files are available for download.
Now is your turn - I hope that next translations will follow. If any of you will be willing to spend
few hours on translation to your language, let me know.
There is first known bug in 4.51 - Drop files window does not work if splashscreen is disabled.
MP3 Manager has been updated to 4.51 final today. Problem with enqueuing to Winamp 2.60+ solved,
Drag & Drop capability added and new HTML help included. Download 4.51 now!
I am delayed with 4.51 - but because of very good reasons. All known bugs from 4.50 will be corrected, html version
of help included, and drag&drop capability added! Please wait for few more days.
I got back mirror at MPX.CZ. Thanks to new owner of the old domain
(site is in Czech language).
As announced on web forum today, I am preparing fix for enqueuing to Winamp 2.60 (I am repeating that
error is on Winamp's end and there is no problem with any version older than 2.60). Version 4.51 could
be ready on Sunday.
4.51 should include new help style in html. It should make it possible to create multi-language help (see
discussion on web forum).
New web design! Isn't it nice? In addition it should take much
less of your precious bandwidth.
Two additional download mirrors added, "sideload" to your idrive/xdrive supported.
New e-mail address - firstname.lastname@example.org. I've lost my geocities
account. Geocities are complaining that I am using their drivespace only as storage place. They are right:-).
To be true, I am glad - I was receiving too many spams to my old address.
I've got back access to my mirror at mp3manager.mute.cz. So now there
are again 3 functional mirrors.
As promised, version 4.50 final has been finished today. Go to download section now!
Release candidate 1 has been released to private testing
today. Expect full release soon - it will include a surprise I was working on
since end of last year. Well... if you are curious, MP3 Manager can be started
in special visual mode... but I am talking too much:-) |
I've created new mirror on iDrive
