Minor changes, For new features see Beta 1.7.0

  • The licensing terms has been changed.
    Now all licenses are lifetime, and limitations apply to updates only.
    Now your annual license will work with all older versions even if it expired already. It won’t work with newer versions only.
    Also an option to purchase the licensed version with lifetime subscription to updates is available to old customers only – those who purchased the program before this day.
    All old customers don’t loose anything: if they bought an annual subscription, they will be able to run all previous versions even after the subscription expires,
    while lifetime license users already has a subscription that’s not available anymore.

  • New multi-thread caching mechanism what minimize locking, improvement in speed up to 2-5 times (depends on core count)

  • Added OpenCL support. "Precise" algorithm now can calculated on your video card. OpenCL - is a framework for writing programs that execute across different platforms consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and other processors. It's support drivers for nVidia CUDA and AMD/ATI APP.


  • Detailed logs and work threads limit count options in config



    (Detailed specially designed to find problems with network and scanning process, Similarity writes to log every step of working, please, if you encounter some problems enable detailed logs and send them with your issue)

  • New translations: Danish and Brazilian Portuguese

  • New algorithm of searching max. frequency

  • New activation mechanism with online and offline activation. Premium uses should reactivate Similarity with they keys, because old activations not compatible with new.





  • Removed Network, at this time it unused, rewritten all remaining network algorithms.

1. New Analysis mode introduced, it's primary goal to show you unquality, problematic music files. We publish detailed article about this mode latter.





In future we planning to add some more sophisticated algorithms to it. And it works more slowly, because it's scan full content of file, not just a begining.

2. Some small bugs fixed.

News / Version 1.4.1 released

Starting from this version of Similarity we introduce a paid Premium subscription to some of the advanced functions. They include:
  • Precise comparison method
  • Automatic save and restore
  • Automatically mark
  • Rearrange groups
  • Folder groups
  • Priority 48 hours technical support.

We are forced to switch payments to the subscription form, because as it’s being developed, Similarity needs more and more resources to support it: we spend that money on tag auto-filling server rental, extending the functionality of the program, translating it to other languages and so on. The basic functionality is still free. Thank you for your understanding.
