SongKong 6.8.1 Rumours released 12th February 2020

We have now released SongKong 6.8.1 bug fix release

This release is a bug fix release, includes a two important fixes for Delete Duplicates

We have also improved support for browsing by single track works with MinimServer, and dealing with songs where the existing data incorrectly sets album artist as track artist

Note:There is one issue with the MacOS version, last year Apple introduced notarization to protect against malicious software and we added notarization support from SongKong 6.6.1 onwards. Unfortunately just this month Apple has tightened the requirements for notarization, and now the version of Java that SongKong uses cannot be notarized, unfortunately we cannot update to a newer version of Java simply, it will require additional code changes.

Since this may take time and the bug fix release was ready we have released as is but on MacOS when you first start SongKong on MacOS you will get an error, but it is easy to resolve by right clicking on SongKong in the /Applications folder, full details how to solve this at Cannot launch SongKong 6.6 on Mac
