TagLib 1.8 released

I'm sorry this took longer than expected, but I've just released the final version of TagLib 1.8. There are a few changes compared to the beta version, see the change log below.


If you find any problems, please report them at the GitHub bug tracker.

Changes in 1.8 final:

  • Added support for OWNE ID3 frames.
  • Changed key validation in the new PropertyMap API.
  • ID3v1::Tag::setStringHandler will no londer delete the previous handler, the caller is responsible for this.
  • File objects will also no longer delete the passed IOStream objects. It should be done in the caller code after the File object is no longer used.
  • Added ID3v2::Tag::setLatin1StringHandler for custom handling of latin1-encoded text in ID3v2 frames.
  • Fixed validation of ID3v2 frame IDs (IDs with '0' were ignored).

Changes in 1.8 beta:

  • New API for accessing tags by name.
  • New abstract I/O stream layer to allow custom I/O handlers.
  • Support for writing ID3v2.3 tags.
  • Support for various module file formats (MOD, S3M, IT, XM).
