Helium Music Manager 8.5 is now officially available!
This version comes with fixes and improvements since the last build, as well as new major features which are described below.
We are very excited to introduce the new Discover artists and Discover tracks views for the Music Browser.
Select any artist from your music collection and choose the Discover artists command to browse artists that are similar to your selected artist. Helium Music Manager will instantly search for similar and related artists in your music collection.
From each artist discovered you can click on that artists name to discover more artists.
You can also click on the number of tracks label to see the a tracklist with tracks from this artist, allowing you to instantly listen to tracks from newly discovered or forgotten artists.
Clicking a track in the tracklist from the Discover artist function will take you to the Discover tracks view which allows you to find similar tracks related to the selected track.
As for the Discover artists function, related tracks are found by fetching tracks from similar artists in your music collection.
The resulting similar tracks allows further discovering of more tracks and artists.
The new views are designed to be easy and fun to use. The results are fetched in the background and when downloaded they will be presented in a visually appealing manner with smooth animations and transitions.
We have created a new tool that allows you to edit the information for multiple artists simpler and quicker.
The tool comes with a new download feature which will download information from multiple online sources as well as merge it with the existing information with just one click.
Apart from the above mentioned fixes we have also completed all tickets reported by users since Helium Music Manager 8.4 was released.
