dmcat is a Digital Music CATalog program. Written in Perl, it recurses a physical directory, searching for digital music files, and builds a virtual catalog (out of symbolic links) in a sister directory. It currently only supports the MP3 format using ID3 tags. The following hierarchies are supported: Album, Artist, Artist_Album, Genre, Miscellaneous (catch-all), Title, and Year.

Release Notes: A fix for a playlist creation bug, a fix for a hostname bug, and a new requirement of Perl 5.6.1.
Release Notes: This release includes support for "normalization" of all names (artist, album, title, etc) so that strange characters are replaced with low-ASCII strings, and support for lowercasing of all names.
Release Notes: Support for WinAMP genres.
Release Notes: A fix for URL encoding (use of "%20" instead of "+" for spaces), and an option to remove the leading "the " from tag elements.
