SongKong 6.9.4 Mercury released 29th of May 2020

This minor release makes improvements to Song Only matching. With song only matching SongKong could sometimes try to work out the Album and Album Artist values. But it was doing this too often, sometimes causing songs from the same album to end up with differing values for Album or Album Artist, now it is much more careful and will only set these values when it is sure it can be set the same for all songs in the grouping. There are also a a number of minor improvements made to the song only matching algorithm.

The Browse by Artist/Album and Browse by Album sections of the report now only group songs by the Album Artist . Previously if the Album Artist was missing they would group by the Artist field instead, but this was confusing because it then looked like the album had been split when in fact the issue was that there was no value for Album Artist.

There was an issue with the startup file in the Docker version preventing SongKong from starting, but this is now fixed. If you have already downloaded SongKong 6.9.4 image and it is not working please simply delete and download again.

There was an issue with startup files on Windows if you had never installed a previous version of SongKong, we have now fixed this and replaced the two SongKong downloads.
