Update: beaTunes 5.0.4

Today's update addresses a couple of nuisances, like a too small speaker icon, issues with inline BPM editing, etc. Furthermore, it contains some of changes that are supposed to make things run more smoothly, if you happen to have a large library (at least 10,000 songs—see also this post).

Because it has been requested independently by multiple people, I have added a field containing the date of the last analysis. This should make it easier to selectively analyze songs, based on when you last analyzed them. Note that this field does not indicate which analysis task you ran—just that you analyzed something. Initially this fields is empty, because beaTunes did not keep track of when you analyzed your songs prior to version 5.0.4. Also new in this version is the description field. It's the equivalent of the ID3 subtitle frame. If you are using an iTunes-based collection, please be aware that this field is not automatically read from iTunes, because iTunes does not seem to export it to its iTunes Library.xml file. If you want to populate it for specific, selected files, you might want to use File -> Refresh from File.

As always, you can download the new version from the download section of the website.
