Written in Python, it enhances a music file's metadata, adding new details about the contained file.
It then provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing the music.
Because it's designed as a library, it can be used from the console or to write music management programs.
News in the current Beets by Adrian Sampson version:

• A new plugin, "lastid", adds Last. fm acoustic fingerprinting support to the tag. Similar to the PUIDs used by MusicBrainz Picard, this system allows beets 1.0b5 to recognize files that don't have any metadata at all. You'll need to install some dependencies for this plugin to work; a guide is available on the project wiki here: http://code. google. com/p/Beets [beets1.0b5.exe]/wiki/LastID

• To support the above, there's also a new system for extending the autotagger via plugins. Plugins can currently add components to the track and album distance functions as well as augment the MusicBrainz search.

• String comparisons in the autotagger have been augmented to act more intuitively. Previously, if your album had the title "Something (EP)" and it was officially called "Something", then Beets - 0MB would think this was a fairly significant change. It now checks for and appropriately reweights certain parts of each string. As another example, the title "The Great Album" is considered equal to "Great Album, The".

• New event system for plugins (thanks, Jeff!). Plugins can now get callbacks from Beets 1.0b5 when certain events occur in the core.

• The BPD plugin is now disabled by default. This greatly simplifies installation of the beets core, which is now 100% pure Python. To use BPD, though, you'll need to set "plugins: bpd" in your . beetsconfig.

• The "import" command can now remove original files when it copies items into your library. (This might be useful if you're low on disk space. ) Set the "import_delete" option in your . beetsconfig to "yes".

• Importing without autotagging ("beet import -A") now prints out album names as it imports them to indicate progress.

• There's a new "mpdupdate" plugin that will automatically update your MPD index whenever your beets library changes. Read the plugin's documentation on the wiki: http://code. google. com/p/beets/wiki/MPDUpdate

• Efficiency tweak should reduce the number of MusicBrainz queries per autotagged album.

• A new "-v" command line switch enables debugging output.

fixed bug that completely broke non-autotagged imports ("import -A").

• Fixed bug that logged the wrong paths when using "import -l".

• Fixed autotagging for the creatively-named band!.

• Fixed normalization of relative paths.

• Fixed escaping of / characters in paths on Windows.
