MediaElch 2.8.12 - Coridian

The next version 2.8.12 is here! This is a bugfix release only. There were two crashes in v2.8.10 (and v2.8.8) that needed fixing as soon as possible.

What’s new?

Only some bugfixes. First, we fixed three crashes that happened when movies were reloaded. One of which existed even prior to v2.8.8 when the file searcher was aborted.

Furthermore, we have fixed the AllMusic review scraping. We didn’t properly load the AllMusic ID from MusicBrainz (with the Universal Music Scraper).

Known Issues

There are some known issues that were not fixed in v2.8.12. We will fix them in the near future.

  • The custom TV scraper may have issues with loading episodes details from other sources than TMDb.
  • The TMDb scraper does not load certain episode details like IDs when you load multiple episodes at once.
