this is an incremental update and includes all changes since version 3.4 - unzip (to the music folder MusicBee is installed for portable versions) and then run MusicBee_Setup_3_5_8150.exe
- upgraded to .NET 4.8. Most people should already have this installed on their machine
- Tools/ Artwork now includes an Artist Thumb Manager to manage artist thumb images used in the Artist view and thumbnail browser
- right click/ "Add to Playlist" is now "Include in Playlist" where you can now add or remove the selected track from playlists
- the track information panel can now show an indicator that there are PDF files in the album folder and clicking the icon opens the PDF file, or lets you select which one to view. See
- the track information panel now aggregates the following fields when multiple files are displayed: play count, skip count,  date last played (set to most recent date), and file size
- support for third header line in the artwork/ expanded panel view
- you can now override the number of columns displayed in the expanded panel by setting a maximum number of columns
- all fields now supported in custom views for the artwork layout
