puddletag is a tag editor for Linux loosely based on mp3tag. It uses a table layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable. puddletag excels at automating repetitive tasks like extracting tag information from filenames, tagging files from a text file or the clipboard, renaming or moving files and folders based on tags by using patterns, and manipulating tags using actions and regular expressions. Supported formats include id3v1, id3v2 (.mp3), AAC (.m4a), VorbisComments (.ogg, .flac), and APEv2 (.ape). Much of mp3tag's functionality has been replicated with added enhancements and tweaks.

Release Notes: This release fixes issue 189, a puddletag.desktop file installation error with the .deb file, and a Python 2.6 incompatibility. The AcoustID tag source is not loaded now if the fpcalc binary is not found.
Release Notes: This release adds German and Russian translations, an updated .desktop file (as per issue 186), an updated icon, and options in the .desktop file which will make it possible to right-click in FM and open in puddletag. It fixes cutting tags, encoding for the genre field, filtering not working with filename fields like __filename, multiple files being selected in file-view and edited, and, when changing focus, the new cell being opened and remaining with the value as before after the change.
Release Notes: New Cover art support for all formats (except ASF) Loading master releases in the Discogs.com tag source. For ID3 tags, UFID frames are only loaded if data can be decoded to UTF-8. MusicBrainz artist search retrieves 100 albums by default. Initial reading of a directory can be canceled now. Uncaught errors for Tag Sources shouldn't leave the Tag Sources window disabled anymore. Discogs artist/albums are parsed correctly instead of looking weird. Amazon keyword search wasn't working at all. Having periods in the Tag->Dir function were causing problems.
Release Notes: The "Tag -> Dir" feature can move directories. Incorrectly encoded files are corrected. Selected files can be moved up or down in file-view. The MusicBrainz tag source now retrieves more fields. The Discogs.com tag source was added, including artwork. The "Select All in Dir" function supports "Select All" in the previous or next directory. Tentative support was added for Mp3tag's tag sources. Language translations were added. The "~" notation can now be used to exclude fields in function calls. Separate options were added to remove ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags. Matches optionally can be automatically retrieved using Tag Sources. Shortcuts were assigned to Actions. The default file sort order is now remembered.
Release Notes: A host of additional features and enhancements were added.
