They have instructions on how to upgrade, but you need to be a linux expert to understand them.

Yes, I believe you can even install your own mirror manually, the virtual image just makes it easy and ready to use for you in a virtual environment.

For unRAID, there is a working Docker container already utilizing the new schema.

My latest update is:
"Last replication packet received at 2016-06-29 08:00 UTC"

Hi, I know how to use linux a little bit, but does this mean every user must create their own mirror for the scraper to work again?

My albums are tagged with both the original release date of the album as well as the year of the specific release. The latter is the year tag. Is there any easy way to modify Kodi or Add On settings so that "year" in the Kodi music library is the year of the original release date and not the date for that CD? In other words if a CD is remastered I'd like to see year in the library to be the date of first public release of the album, not the year of the remaster.

Thanks.

Not as far I know. I use Musicbrainz Picard and mitigated this issue by using the original date as date. Set
Code:
$set(date,%originaldate%)
as tagger script in Picard.

Thank you. It sounds like I have to change the tags rather than adjust kodi or the addon. I'd prefer not to change the music tags as having both the original date and the date of the release I find pretty useful.

Andy, leave your tags if you have both dates. I have it on my todo list for v18 to get Kodi to process and store both kinds of date tag - at the moment it puts them all into one year value. At that time I will look to be able to scrape both these dates for albums too. Persoanlly I would like to be able to see and filter by the recording date, sort all those 60s recordings that get released onto >90s CDs into their proper place.
