Metadata editor beta
So I finally got around to adding a long-standing request: metadata editing.
What the metadata editor does is edit the data stored in Astiga's database. This means it does touch your files at all. The reason is that it is error-prone, but more importantly, to change the file's metadata, the file needs to be downloaded, the metadata changed, and then uploaded again to your cloud storage. This would be not be performant.
Once you change a file's metadata, it will be excluded from the sync. This includes force sync. That way your changes will not be overridden. The changes will however be lost when you (re)move the file and sync again, or if you manually remove the file from your library.
This also encompasses a long-awaited change to AutoTag, which now no longer runs during the sync, but instead can be called as a separate button in the metadata editor. It makes the sync faster, and AutoTag more useful, as it won't try to make sense of your untagged voice recordings any more.
For the time being the metadata editor is available for everyone. It will most likely become a premium feature in the future. There are still some things planned before that though, the main one being able to edit several songs simultaneously.
