While previous versions of mp3Tag Pro supported Unicode in tags, the program depended on your system locale to save them properly. Thus it was not possible saving, for example, Greek characters, if your system was set to English. Starting with mp3Tag Pro 8.0, the program fully supports Unicode and can properly read, edit, rename files containing various characters in their names, as well as save any characters to tags independently of the currently used system settings.
In mp3Tag Pro 8.0, tags of music files are displayed directly in the list. To edit a certain entry, just click it in the list and provide necessary corrections.
Previous versions of mp3Tag Pro distinguished between minor and major upgrades. Minor upgrades were free, major upgrades required some payment. mp3Tag Pro 8.0 introduces new licensing rules: now all upgrades, both minor and major, are free throughout the whole period of license validity. Furthermore, after purchasing a license you get access to the package of 5 programs (full versions): mp3Tag Pro, Visual MP3 Splitter & Joiner, AudioConverter Studio, Music Duplicate Remover, MIDI Converter Studio.
mp3Tag Pro 8.0 makes it easy to see the situation with tags and filenames at once: songs without tags are highlighted with red, songs without lyrics are shown without any highlighting, songs with lyrics are highlighted with green. Furthermore, you can easily filter songs by different paramters: show songs without covers, without lyrics, without tags (the rest will be removed from the list, if a filter is applied).
The new version of mp3Tag Pro comes with an additional engine for lyrics search. Now the program can search for lyrics in two different ways, providing more flexibility. Scripts allow you downloading lyrics from specific sites, making sure that the text comes nice and clean, with proper formatting.
In mp3Tag Pro 8.0, you can add album art to your files much faster, as the program will automatically open the folder where the corresponding song is stored.
mp3Tag Pro 8.0 uses new API of MusicBrainz and Discogs, which results in downloading more information about music albums.
There are some optimizations and compatibility improvements. This allows mp3Tag Pro 8.0 saving ID3 tags faster, compared to previous versions.

mp3Tag is great, by the way. I am a bit of an addict when it comes to music. I download a lot of music files from blogs and many of them are poorly tagged and named. mp3Tag makes the process of making them more useful so very easy. I have hundreds of files from a time before I purchased mp3Tag and am now going through those files to fix them. I simply could not do this without mp3Tag.
Keep up the great work. I look forward to future versions.Randy
