Music Manager Bugs

So my last Goggles Music Manager (0.9.4) was really a rough release. It took until 0.9.8 to get all things right. Of course then the next couple of days you discover even more bugs, so a 0.9.9 is on its way.

Yesterday I discovered that in combination with gap less playback the piece of code that updates the playing track information is never called, which affects the status information in the GUI, but also the updating of the play count and eventually also the submission to last-fm. The bug was hard to find, because it would work about 50% of the time.

There was also a crash in the edit track dialog when referring to a deleted file. I also fixed the issue that when you press stop, it will update the current item in the track list, so when next time you press play again, it will start from the last track you played.

Now it wasn't all bugs this week. I also spend some time implementing support for embedded album art in mp3 (and flac files with id3v2 tags) files. I hope to also implement support for album art for regular flac files.
