Two new features are available: the Automated Librarian
and Playlist Exporter
The iTuner Automated Librarian
automatically cleans the iTunes library, removing dead tracks and duplicates. As a track is played, if no other track from this album has yet been played during this iTuner session, then iTuner automatically cleans that album of dead tracks and duplicates. These two features and an empty directory
scanner, are also available from the context menu, allowing you to clean either the current album or playlist, or run individual scanners against the entire library.
This is also the first release of the Playlist Exporter
, allowing you to copy music to other devices such as thumb drives or MP3 players. You can export and convert all tracks on the current album, by the current artist, or in the current playlist and convert these tracks using various encoders such as AAC, M4A, MP3, WAV, or other formats. Finally, you can choose to generate one of multiple playlist index files, such as M3U, PLS and WPL, describing this exported playlist.Notes
