TagLib 1.6 is released. This release includes support for four new
file formats - ASF, MP4, AIFF, WAV, new ID4v2.4 frames - POPM and
PRIV, and a number of bug fixes.

I'm not sure if Scott has time to update his page, so I've created a
_temporary_ page for TagLib 1.6 where you can find
download/documentation links and change log --

As I said in the 1.6 RC announce email, this is the last release in
1.x series. The next release will be 2.0, which will include
incompatible changes. I'll send a separate mail regarding 2.0
development later.
