Update kid3 to 3.7.0

Authored by Harvey on Feb 19 2019, 2:22 PM.



Lots of changes since 3.5.1 here is their summarised list

  • 3.7.0 The most important new feature is a playlist editor. Playlist items can be added, removed and reordered. Improvements include editors for the formats to convert between tags and file names and drop down lists with available tag values when multiple files are selected. The new file list fixes problems with updates when directories are renamed.
  • 3.6.2 This bugfix release fixes the use of free form MP4 atoms, import from CSV with DOS line endings, the application icon in KDE wayland sessions and other bugs. The generation of file names from tags is improved by supporting conditional text around a value from the tags, which is only inserted when the corresponding value exists.
  • 3.6.1 This bugfix release improves the speed when saving with a lot of unchanged files in the directory. It fixes wrong parsing of the xid atom when using the Mp4v2Metadata plugin, scrolling to the opened file when using a custom sort order in the file list and avoids changing the file name extension when setting file names from the tags.
  • 3.6.0 Ratings can now be edited using stars with configurable mapping between rating values and the number of stars. New options include a maximum length for file names and showing hidden files. Support for MP4 files is improved by handling more atom types. Bug fixes include renaming of directories with subfolders on Windows and finding frames by their frame ID. The Android app has a fresh look in Material style.
Test Plan

use kid3-qt to edit mp3 title and album metadata
use kid3-cli to edit mp4 title metadata

Fixed newline

Congratulations with your first revision :)


There is a pkgconfig for that: pkgconfig(gstreamer-1.0).
Use pkgconfigs always when it's possible. You can see if package has it by running eopkg info <package name>
