Unfortunately last.fm introduced some changes to the usage of their API and MusicBee is currently exceeding those restrictions. As such I have made a number of changes. The functions still implemented are:
  - scrobbling
  - playcount sync
  - track love and track love sync - however track love now updates last.fm only if the "synchronise Track Love to last.fm is enabled in the last.fm plugin preferences ie. without that being set, track love now only updates the musicbee database
  - artist biographies
  - similar artists
- as a fallback, spotify is also used for similar artists if none are found on last.fm or last.fm is failing
- as a fallback wikipedia is used if last.fm artist biography fails - however wikipedia is not ideal as its not specifically focused on music/  artists and i am expecting there will be some cases of rubbish results
- for artist thumbnails, fanart.tv is still used but as a fallback, spotify is used
- for artist pictures, fanart.tv is still used, now along with Wikipedia and Google. The results from google can be great or can be unrelated for some artist names so you can disable google in the Now Playing panel settings
- the last.fm cloud tagging is removed
- for auto-tag by album, spotify is used where last.fm was used for genres

I am told that last.fm track love and user playcount sync will be excluded from rate limiting late by the end of the week
