I think it would be very useful to be able to extract the debug information generated by taglib. I think it is the programs that use taglib that should be displaying this information to the user. Right now this information is just sent to std::cerr by taglib. This information could be very useful.

> Subject: TagLib 1.7 RC1 released
> To: taglib-devel at kde.org
> Even though I wasn't planning to make a 1.7 release by the time 1.6.3
> was released, moving forward with the 1.x series seems to be the
> easiest way to go. There are many new features in this version. The
> biggest ones are full support for Monkey's Audio files and cover art
> support for WMA and FLAC files. There are also a number of bug fixes.
> The reason why I decided to go with a RC is that some code had to be
> rewritten in order to add the new features, so I'd like more people to
> test it before there is a final release. Also, if I've forgotten about
> somebody's patch that should be included in the final release, please
> let me know.
> One important thing is that TagLib 1.7 no longer supports building
> using automake/autoconf. If you used this build system, try our
> CMake-based build system which was available in TagLib for a long
> time. The INSTALL document has been rewritten to cover the most
> important CMake options.
