Versions 1.2.02 and 1.3.03 released

New stable and unstable builds are available, but there isn't that much to say about them, especially about the stable one, 1.2.02.

1.2.02 simply got into the stable branch all the changes from 1.3.01, which are a few bug fixes that didn't affect most users, plus the acknowledgment that Discogs integration no longer works, so it got disabled.

Unstable version 1.3.03 has a few changes that may be more important:
  • Some error messages during / after crashes should make more sense
  • An additional cache is included in the hope of helping with speed (and maybe errors) when scanning external drives. As I don't have hardware that exhibits this issue, I don't know if it actually does any good. Perhaps reports from users will clear this up.
  • VBR files whose Xing/LAME headers incorrectly include themselves in the frame count are now treated differently, and they don't get deleted by "Repair VBR data". The reason is that such headers don't usually cause problems, even if they are wrong, and may contain useful information (like gapless play details) which until now got discarded by "Repair VBR data".
