Running MB 3.5.8698

I have an auto-playlist defined with one match condition:

Code
Artists: Remixer = has a value



In version 3.5.8447, this resulted in a playlist with about 850 tracks:



 After updating to 3.5.8698, the playlist is empty:



I've tried the various other Artists:xxxx rule options as well and they also appear to fail to match any tracks after updating to 8698.

That fixed the auto-playlist but now the Music tab thinks all my music is from 2014



The library stats show the right info though

I am sorting by date added yes, but I have added hundreds of albums since 2014. I rolled back to the unpatched version and it works fine:



There is no filter applied to the view in either screenshot, it's my entire collection view.

you added tracks to your library in 1994? MusicBee didnt exist then. What is the default windows date format for your country?
If you are happy to PM me a link to your musicbeelibrary.mbl file in the root music library and your settings file (help/ support/ view settings) then that would make solving this easier

Sent you a link to those files, but also the Date Added field will occasionally pre-date MB just because I manually edit that field for some albums that I add from my CDs collection since I don't want albums I bought 30 years ago showing up at the front of that list.

Thanks for sending those files. However I cant reproduce the issue you are reporting ie. the az bar shows all dates you expected
What version does help/about say?
