I just updated from 2.9.4 to 3.0.1 and it works flawlessly !
I fell in love with the iTunes skin in the old version but now I've set it to the Flat White, wow ! ;)

I just have one question. In 2.9.4 when browsing by genres it would show the album list on the left. Now with 3.0.1 it displays the artist list and then their albums.
It's not a bad idea but with genres like videogame or anime music, where there are several artists involved with the album, it looks kinda messed up.
So I need to browse by folder for these genres.
No big deal though. ;)
Here's a screenshot I made if my explanation wasn't clear enough:



Nevertheless, thanks again for the good work ! ;)

There was many requests to show artists first, so I changed it in 3.0.

Ok, so that's normal. ;)
Guess there aren't many users who have multi-artists albums.
Well, as I said, no big deal. ;)

By "make relative path" you mean that you use portable version?

So...
How did you make this path on your screenshot? The path starting with a dot is incorrect in the library dialog.

Easy: I wrote path manualy in library.xml
\path = Root of drive
.\path = Application folder

The correct format for library.xml is:
/path = Root of drive -> should be ?:\path\
./path = Application folder -> not supported

Anyway, I do not recommend to manually edit this file. Winyl already uses relative paths for portable version.

@Alexander
You mentioned once that support for cue sheets was planned for version 3.1, it was released but Winyl still can't read cues. I hope that you haven't discarded the idea of adding support for cue files (I do not use Winyl on a regular basis mainly because it cannot read cues). If cue sheets are needed I have a huge audio collection which contains many .CUE files.
Best regards

CUE support is partially done, it will be added to 3.2. A beta version will be released within a month or two.

Can you add folders in smart lists? Also, can you add rating of album based on rating of songs in album? Excellent app. Thanx.

Can you add folders in smart lists?
New smartlist -> From -> Folders -> "C:\Music\Folder + D:\Music\Another Folder" (without quotes).

Also, can you add rating of album based on rating of songs in album?
With smartlists you can select top rated/lowest rated albums, it will be based on rating of songs in album.

Hi,

is it possible, in future release, to add these features to the smartlist creation ?

- add a filter on the "Comment" field => to enable users to make fully customizable classification

- add the possibility to use joker char (or regex) : using "*metal*" in the genre criteria would return all "Atmospheric metal" and "industrial metal" songs. This could also be done by adding a dropdown list with the "equals", "contains", starts with" and "ends with" items.
