Kaseto 0.9.1 shows metadata changes immediately without any delay. The info tab in the metadata editor was broken for albums with only a single track. This is fixed now. There is also a minor update for the Italian translation.
With Kaseto 0.9, metadata (like title and artist for example) as well as covers can be edited directly in Kaseto. The most requested feature ever, is a volume control to change the volume independently from the system volume. Now it is there! Furthermore, the selection of songs and albums works more intuitive now.
The metadata editor for songs and albums can be opened via a right mouse click. There missing metadata can be added or typos corrected for example. It is possible to edit titles, artists, genres, track numbers and covers. Several artists and genres can be separated by commas.
The new volume control can be found in the header of Kaseto. According to the available space, the slider for changing the volume is located directly in the header or can be opened via a toggle button. The volume control works relative to the system volume.
In Kaseto 0.8 and prior, the control key had to be held to select a song or an album. Now the selection works more intuitive and similar to Windows Explorer. A single click selects a song or album and a double click triggers playing. Clicking on the play icon starts playing immediately.
Kaseto requires the .NET runtime 4.5, but Windows 7 contains only the version 4.0 out-of-the-box. This can cause unexpected crashes. Therefore, the .NET runtime will be checked at startup now.
The new release of Kaseto introduces multiple new comfort features. In the taskbar, the currently played song will be displayed and a mini player will appear in the window preview. There, the playback can be paused and jumped to the previous or next song by just one click.
In Kaseto, a click with the right mouse button on an album or song opens the new context menu. The menu item “Play” starts playback immediately. Via the menu item “Enqueue” an album or song can be inserted at the end of the queue of all music to be played. This means that the playback will start as soon as all other pieces of music have been played. The menu item “Open” is only available for albums and shows all tracks of it.
If you want to queue several songs at once, it may be convenient to activate the selection mode by holding the CTRL key. In the selection mode, clicking on an album or song will select it instead of starting to play it. The Shift key can be used to select a bunch of albums and songs at once. This works just like in Explorer.
Kaseto detects the language of the operating system when starting and chooses the language automatically. Another language can be chosen in the settings. German, English, French, Greek, Italian and Russian are currently available.

Several legacy audio players and editing tools save non-Latin letters in a non-standardized way. Kaseto 0.7.2 can detect such audio files and show all meta data correctly. If you have noticed any broken names in your music collection, just reload your music collection (Settings / Change…) after installing the latest version of Kaseto.
The first public version of Kaseto was published exactly one month ago. In that month, Kaseto has been downloaded more than 2,000 times and translated in three additional languages by users. Thank you very much!
Kaseto supports Italian language now. Thanks to Assistenza Tecnica Freddy for the Italian translation! There is also a bug fix for displaying Greek letters.
The new version of Kaseto provides a search function for albums and songs. A further new feature is the possibility to change playhead position of the currently played song. Loading and updating the music collection will be visualized as a progress in the taskbar now.
The search box is located on the top right in the header of Kaseto. Already while typing a few letters, Kaseto will start to search matching albums and songs, and show them instantly. Usually it is enough to type the first letters of an album, title or interpret for finding the right one. The search can be closed by clicking on the X icon in the search box or by pressing the Esc key.
Now the progress bar, which shows the progress of playing in the header, is clickable. This means that playhead position of the currently played song can be changed. For example, a song can be rewind to the middle by clicking on the center of the progress bar. The exact position will be shown as tooltip.
The progress of initial loading of the music collection or when Kaseto detects new audio files at startup will be visualized as a progress bar under the Kaseto icon in the taskbar. In Kaseto, the loading and updating of audio files will be always executed in the background. The music player is fully usable in the meantime.
Kaseto supports French and Greek language now. Thanks to Marc and geogeo.gr for the translations! Thereby, two additional languages are available, besides English, German and Russian.
The first public version of Kaseto is available and can be downloaded. Kaseto is still under development and additional features will be added step by step before releasing the final version 1.0.
Following features, amongst others, are planned:
- Search (already in progress)
- Changing covers and metadata directly in Kaseto
