backup:

- The copy tags commands (2 hotkeys and from the main edit menu) now copy all metadata, including tags that MusicBee does not know about. The one exception is for MP3 files, where MusicBee will copy all TXXX tags but wont copy specific 4 character codes it has no handling for such as GEOB.
- new "Bit Depth" field which shows the bits per sample for lossless files. Note that for lossy files (.mp3, .m4a, etc) that its a common mis-understanding that these files have 16-bits per sample when infact its undefined. As such MusicBee shows a blank value for lossy files. You will need to rescan existing lossless files for the value to show (right click/ Send To/ Rescan Files). The value is automatically captured for new files
- when retrieving artwork now has support for Back.jpg files. You will need to enable Back.* in Tags(1)/ artwork storage/ Edit List

- when creating new playlists, the name of the playlist is now set in the playlist configuration dialog
- there is now a second track information panel that can be included in the panel arrangement eg. you might dock it as a tab to show secondary track details
- numerous bug fixes

Unfortunately over the weekend MusicBrainz made a change to the output of one of their APIs that has effectively disabled MusicBee's artist and album picture lookup from fanart.tv, so I am re-releasing MusicBee 3.2. Again I will leave this a few days before making it available on the downloads page

Various bug fixes and minor enhancements:
- mini player now supports a large abum artwork layout
- for regular (non-bitmap) skins, there is better layout support in the main player for when there is a small amount of horizontal width available.
- additionally a stop button can now be displayed for all types of progress bars (regular skins only)
- minor layout tweaks for the "Now Playing" panel
- For the "Album Color Mix" view in the "Now Playing" panel, you can set it to display the artist biography and artist picture
- The Music Explorer panel now allows sorting tracks by title and also shows the album name for duplicate titles
- Playlist header now also shows the album count in the playlist
- when dragging files, the left sidebar no longer automatically pops up (you can hover on the left panel edge and it will pop up)
- in MusicBee v3.2, the bass library changed the default output mode from using DirectSound to WASAPI shared. There are some cases where you will want to use the old DirectSound api (eg. running on Linux with WINE, certain volume controls, etc). You can now instruct MusicBee to use the legacy DirectSound api from the Player preferences
