foobar2000 1.5

  • New and improved Properties dialog, with the ability to manipulate attached pictures as well as scan and modify ReplayGain values.
  • Greatly improved Selection Properties performance for large track lists.
  • Various prompts (such as delete/recycle) now come with a “do not show this again” checkbox.
  • Restored pre-1.4 behavior of main-window-hidden/notification-icon-only status being remembered after foobar2000 restart.
  • Added logging of Media Library scanning errors – “show errors” button in Media Library Preferences.
  • Added Advanced Preferences option for flushing playback queue on manual track change (default: on).
  • Made “Open containing folder” command work with tracks in archives – opens folder containing the archive.
  • Added an option to preserve last-modified timestamps of tracks when updating tags.
  • Additional safeguards against corrupted configuration in case of a system crash while saving (FlushFileBuffers).
  • File Operations: delete/recycle prompt always says “Delete” rather than “Recycle”, since not every volume supports recycle action.
  • FFmpeg 3.4.6, now compiled with MS compiler, binary size reduced due to DLL runtime.
  • FLAC 1.3.3
  • Implemented reading of cue+bin audio CD images.
  • Implemented asynchronous drag&drop, for less stalls when dragging tracks from foobar2000 to another program.
  • Removed transacted filesystem support. There are no known benefits to it and even Microsoft documentation says not to use it.
  • Improved programming interfaces for External Tags and Skip Track components.
  • Made album art loading/resizing operations in Default User Interface asynchronous. Large pictures no longer make the app momentarily unresponsive.
  • Converter: Added Opus encoder selection for –music / –speech modes.
  • Converter: New list control in various dialogs. Column sizes are remembered.
  • Improved playback position reporting with Skip Silence and similar DSP effects.
  • Made possible to check for updates of components listed but not hosted on foobar2000.org.
  • Enabled embedded cuesheet support for MP3 files.
  • Made WavPack/DSD MD5 visible – using another field so Verifier doesn’t try to verify it.
