    Re: PerfectTUNES R1.5

    Updated to R1.6

    Changes

    Made Art searching label on manual page larger (could clip)
    Manual Album Art - when type a new value, it clears the existing entries
    Manual Album Art - when sort large to small, keeps the existing art in position 1
    Installer offers to create a desktop icon

    Bug fix: if write art to a flac file, then rerunning any PT program would indicate the flac file was corrupted (it was not, just our rescanner missbehaving)
    Bug fix: accuraterip export list could muddle filenames
