Version: v0.40a3
Type: Sound Application

Homepage: http://k-yamo.sourceforge.net
More Info:

 K-Yamo is a music-organizer for tagging music
files (mp3 and ogg atm)
,and ripping audio-cds. It uses the tags, to
rename files, and can generate complete structured
music-directories, out of your musiccollection
that way.
It can help you out with tags out of the database
it uses optionally, so you don't need to type
You can tag complete directory-trees at once, and
only change selected values. (for example set the
artist of a complete directory)
Since this version, K-Yamo can guess the tags out
of the filenames, and get missing tags from
(Please read the Howto included, to find out, how
the creating of the filters works. It is really
easy, if you know it.)

Sorry for the big version-jump, but it was
necessary, to make updating in distros better.

Once again: Have fun with this new version.

I need a feedback, so please post some comments.
(Otherwise I have to continue it only on my way)
