Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4.7, Package name: beets-1.4.7, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Beets is the best command-line tool for viewing, querying, renaming,
and updating your music collection.

The purpose of beets is to get your music collection right once
and for all. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving
its metadata as it goes using the MusicBrainz database. (It also
downloads cover art for albums it imports.) Then it provides a
bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music.

Because beets is designed as a library, it can do almost anything
you can imagine for your music collection. Via plugins, beets
becomes a panacea:

* Embed and extract album art from files' tags.
* Listen to your library with a music player that speaks the MPD
protocol and works with a staggering variety of interfaces.
* Fetch lyrics for all your songs from databases on the Web.
* Manage your MusicBrainz music collection.
* Analyze music files' metadata from the command line.
* Clean up crufty tags left behind by other, less-awesome tools.
* Browse your music library graphically through a Web browser
and play it in any browser that supports HTML5 Audio.

py-beets: updated to 1.4.7


This new release includes lots of new features in the importer and the
metadata source backends that it uses.
We've changed how the beets importer handles non-audio tracks listed in
metadata sources like MusicBrainz:

* The importer now ignores non-audio tracks (namely, data and video tracks)
  listed in MusicBrainz. Also, a new option, :ref:ignore_video_tracks, lets
  you return to the old behavior and include these video tracks.
* A new importer option, :ref:ignored_media, can let you skip certain media

There are other subtle improvements to metadata handling in the importer:
* In the MusicBrainz backend, beets now imports the
  musicbrainz_releasetrackid field. This is a first step toward
* A new importer configuration option, :ref:artist_credit, will tell beets
  to prefer the artist credit over the artist when autotagging.

And there are even more new features:
* :doc:/plugins/replaygain: The beet replaygain command now has
  --force, --write and --nowrite options.
* A new importer configuration option, :ref:incremental_skip_later, lets you
  avoid recording skipped directories to the list of "processed" \ 
  in :ref:incremental mode. This way, you can revisit them later with
  another import.
* :doc:/plugins/fetchart: The configuration options now support
  finer-grained control via the sources option. You can now specify the
  search order for different *matching strategies* within different backends.
* :doc:/plugins/web: A new cors_supports_credentials configuration
  option lets in-browser clients communicate with the server even when it is
  protected by an authorization mechanism (a proxy with HTTP authentication
  enabled, for example).
* A new :doc:/plugins/sonosupdate plugin automatically notifies Sonos
  controllers to update the music library when the beets library changes.
* :doc:/plugins/discogs: The plugin now stores master release IDs into
  mb_releasegroupid. It also "simulates" track IDs using the release ID
  and the track list position.
* :doc:/plugins/discogs: Fetch the original year from master releases.

There are lots and lots of fixes

py-beets: updated to 1.4.6

The highlight of this release is "album merging," an oft-requested \ 
option in
the importer to add new tracks to an existing album you already have in your
library. This way, you no longer need to resort to removing the partial album
from your library, combining the files manually, and importing again.

Here are the larger new features in this release:

* When the importer finds duplicate albums, you can now merge all the
  tracks---old and new---together and try importing them as a single, combined
* :doc:/plugins/lyrics: The plugin can now produce reStructuredText files
  for beautiful, readable books of lyrics.
* A new :ref:from_scratch configuration option makes the importer remove old
  metadata before applying new metadata. This new feature complements the
  :doc:zero </plugins/zero> and :doc:scrub </plugins/scrub> plugins \ 
but is
  slightly different: beets clears out all the old tags it knows about and
  only keeps the new data it gets from the remote metadata source.

Log message:

Version 1.4.5 adds some oft-requested features. When you're importing files,
you can now manually set fields on the new music. Date queries have gotten
much more powerful: you can write precise queries down to the second, and we
now have *relative* queries like ``-1w``, which means *one week ago*.

Here are the new features:

* You can now set fields to certain values during :ref:`import-cmd`, using
  either a ``--set field=value`` command-line flag or a new :ref:`set_fields`
  configuration option under the `importer` section.
* :ref:`Date queries <datequery>` can now include times, so you can filter
  your music down to the second.
* :ref:`Date queries <datequery>` can also be *relative*. You can say
  ``added:-1w..`` to match music added in the last week, for example.
* A new :doc:`/plugins/gmusic` lets you interact with your Google Play Music
* :doc:`/plugins/replaygain`: We now keep R128 data in separate tags from
  classic ReplayGain data for formats that need it (namely, Ogg Opus). A new
  `r128` configuration option enables this behavior for specific formats.
* The :ref:`move-cmd` command gained a new ``--export`` flag, which copies
  files to an external location without changing their paths in the library

There are also some bug fixes:

* :doc:`/plugins/lastgenre`: Fix a crash when using the `prefer_specific` and
  `canonical` options together.
* :doc:`/plugins/web`: Fix a crash on Windows under Python 2 when serving
  non-ASCII filenames.
* :doc:`/plugins/metasync`: Fix a crash in the Amarok backend when filenames
  contain quotes.
* More informative error messages are displayed when the file format is not

Update audio/beets to 1.4.3

pkgsrc changes:
 - Update HOMEPAGE
   (beets is now compatible with Python 3 too)
 - Misc cosmetic fixes and simplifications

1.4.3 (January 9, 2017)

Happy new year! This new version includes a cornucopia of new features from
contributors, including new tags related to classical music and a new
:doc:`/plugins/absubmit` for performing acoustic analysis on your music. The
:doc:`/plugins/random` has a new mode that lets you generate time-limited
music---for example, you might generate a random playlist that lasts the
perfect length for your walk to work. We also access as many Web services as
possible over secure connections now---HTTPS everywhere!

1.4.2 (December 16, 2016)

This is just a little bug fix release. With 1.4.2, we're also confident enough
to recommend that anyone who's interested give Python 3 a try: bugs may still
lurk, but we've deemed things safe enough for broad adoption. If you can,
please install beets with ``pip3`` instead of ``pip2`` this time and let us
know how it goes!

1.4.1 (November 25, 2016)

Version 1.4 has **alpha-level** Python 3 support. Thanks to the heroic efforts
of :user:`jrobeson`, beets should run both under Python 2.7, as before, and
now under Python 3.4 and above. The support is still new: it undoubtedly
contains bugs, so it may replace all your music with Limp Bizkit---but if
you're brave and you have backups, please try installing on Python 3. Let us
know how it goes.

1.3.19 (June 25, 2016)

This is primarily a bug fix release: it cleans up a couple of regressions that
appeared in the last version. But it also features the triumphant return of the
:doc:`/plugins/beatport` and a modernized :doc:`/plugins/bpd`.

It's also the first version where beets passes all its tests on Windows! May
this herald a new age of cross-platform reliability for beets.

1.3.18 (May 31, 2016)

This update adds a new :doc:`/plugins/hook` that lets you integrate beets with
command-line tools and an :doc:`/plugins/export` that can dump data from the
beets database as JSON. You can also automatically translate lyrics using a
machine translation service.

The ``echonest`` plugin has been removed in this version because the API it
used is `shutting down`_. You might want to try the
:doc:`/plugins/acousticbrainz` instead.

1.3.17 (February 7, 2016)

This release introduces one new plugin to fetch audio information from the
`AcousticBrainz`_ project and another plugin to make it easier to submit your
handcrafted metadata back to MusicBrainz.
The importer also gained two oft-requested features: a way to skip the initial
search process by specifying an ID ahead of time, and a way to *manually*
provide metadata in the middle of the import process (via the

Also, as of this release, the beets project has some new Internet homes! Our
new domain name is `beets.io`_, and we have a shiny new GitHub organization:

1.3.16 (December 28, 2015)

The big news in this release is a new :doc:`interactive editor plugin
</plugins/edit>`. It's really nifty: you can now change your music's metadata
by making changes in a visual text editor, which can sometimes be far more
efficient than the built-in :ref:`modify-cmd` command. No more carefully
retyping the same artist name with slight capitalization changes.

This version also adds an oft-requested "not" operator to beets' \ 
queries, so
you can exclude music from any operation. It also brings friendlier formatting
(and querying!) of song durations.

1.3.15 (October 17, 2015)

This release adds a new plugin for checking file quality and a new source for
lyrics. The larger features are:

* A new :doc:`/plugins/badfiles` helps you scan for corruption in your music
  collection. Thanks to :user:`fxthomas`. :bug:`1568`
* :doc:`/plugins/lyrics`: You can now fetch lyrics from Genius.com.
  Thanks to :user:`sadatay`. :bug:`1626` :bug:`1639`
* :doc:`/plugins/zero`: The plugin can now use a "whitelist" policy as an
  alternative to the (default) "blacklist" mode. Thanks to :user:`adkow`.
  :bug:`1621` :bug:`1641`

1.3.14 (August 2, 2015)

This is mainly a bugfix release, but we also have a nifty new plugin for
`ipfs`_ and a bunch of new configuration options.

1.3.13 (April 24, 2015)

This is a tiny bug-fix release. It copes with a dependency upgrade that broke

1.3.12 (April 18, 2015)

This little update makes queries more powerful, sorts music more
intelligently, and removes a performance bottleneck. There's an experimental
new plugin for synchronizing metadata with music players.

Packagers should also note a new dependency in this version: the `Jellyfish`_
Python library makes our text comparisons (a big part of the auto-tagging
process) go much faster.

1.3.11 (April 5, 2015)

In this release, we refactored the logging system to be more flexible and more
useful. There are more granular levels of verbosity, the output from plugins
should be more consistent, and several kinds of logging bugs should be
impossible in the future.

There are also two new plugins: one for filtering the files you import and an
evolved plugin for using album art as directory thumbnails in file managers.
There's a new source for album art, and the importer now records the source of
match data. This is a particularly huge release---there's lots more below.

There's one big change with this release: **Python 2.6 is no longer
supported**. You'll need Python 2.7. Please trust us when we say this let us
remove a surprising number of ugly hacks throughout the code.
