Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release, but it also brings two new plugins, one for playing music in desktop players and another for organizing your directories into “buckets.” It also brings huge performance optimizations to queries, so your beet ls commands will now go much faster.
Release Notes: There's support for tracking and calculating musical keys, the ReplayGain plugin was expanded to work with more music formats via GStreamer, this release can import directly from compressed archives, and the lyrics plugin is more robust.
Release Notes: This release brings a hodgepodge of medium-sized conveniences to beets. A new "config" command manages your configuration, there's now bash completion, and the "modify" command can delete attributes. There are also some significant performance optimizations to the autotagger's matching logic.
Release Notes: This release changes how item and album fields work internally. Along with laying the groundwork for some great things in the future, this brings a number of improvements to how users interact with beets.
Release Notes: This update brings new plugins for fetching acoustic metrics and listening statistics, many more options for the duplicate detection plugin, and flexible options for fetching multiple genres. The “core” of beets gained a new built-in command: beet write updates the metadata tags for files, bringing them back into sync with your database.
Release Notes: This release adds support for Opus files, transcoding to any format, and two new plugins: one that guesses metadata for "blank" files based on their filenames and one that moves featured artists into the title field.
Release Notes: Albums and items now have flexible attributes. This means that when you want to store information about your music in the beets database, you’re no longer constrained to the set of fields it supports out of the box (title, artist, track, etc.). Instead, you can use any field name you can think of and treat it just like the built-in fields.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. The authors are in the midst of preparing for a large change in beets 1.3, so 1.2.2 resolves some issues which came up over the last few weeks.
Release Notes: This release introduces a major internal change in the way that similarity scores are handled. It means that the importer interface can now show you exactly why a match is assigned its score and that the autotagger gained a few new options which let you customize how matches are prioritized and recommended.
Release Notes: This release features new data sources for the autotagger, new plugins that look for problems in your library, tracking of the date that you acquired new music, an awesome new syntax for running queries over numeric fields, support for ALAC files, and major enhancements to the importer’s UI and distance calculations.
