Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Puddletag is an audio tag editor for Linux, very similar to the popular Windows application Mp3tag.

The MusicBrainz and Discogs music tag sources stopped working in the latest stable Puddletag version for quite some time because of API changes but today, a new Puddletag version has been released (1.0 beta), finally bringing support for the latest MusicBrainz and Discogs APIs.

Puddletag 1.0 beta also comes with full support for Mp3tag tag sources (in my test though, I couldn't get any Mp3tag tag sources to work for some reason - bug reported), mass tagging improvements and other changes.

This is a beta so you might encounter bugs - report them here.

Download Puddletag

Because this is a beta release, I didn't upload it to our stable Puddletag PPA. You can however install the latest Puddletag 1.0 beta in Ubuntu and stay up to date with future beta releases by using the WebUpd8 Unstable PPA. You can also download the .deb / source from its website.
