  • Crashes now contain information about what decoder is crashed. This is help your to uninstall bad written and problematic decoders, that can't properly work in true multithreaded environment such as Similarity



  • Additional keyboard shortcuts



  • Counter in analysis mode
  • Bug with 100% similarity precise algorithm fixed
  • Network improvments

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.

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.

Duration check added

  • New Similarity icon.


  • New decoders tab in options, you can now enable/disable decoders, set priority and extensions to them.


  • Some fixes in DirectShow decoder

  • By default we disable DirectShow decoder, you can simply enable it in options, if you want. Reasons:
      1) Many users doesn't want to decode video files and compare audio streams in them.
      2) More important, all crashes that we received recently were caused by bugged 3rd party DirectShow filters, not by Similarity, some of this filters can't work correctly in true multithread environment, some simply bugged. Several people use very old, invalid filters, that they installed via some packs and never updated. We can't change and fix that, only user can solve this by removing unnecessary codecs and filters.

1. The new "Precise" algorithm is introduced. This is previous experimental algorithm with super fast speed and caching, enable it in options dialog.



2. Keyboard shortcuts added, keyboard usability improved than you delete, ignore.



3. Many new features (coming and present) depends on network functionality (as "Precise" algorithm), you must automatically registred by program than you go to network tab.





4. Very raw and experimental technology of P2P tags sharing, it tries to get tags information from over Similarity users, it's not share any content of sound only artist, album and song title.






5. Not very intuitive sensivity fields in options, replaced by threshold percentage fields - "what your see is what you get".



6. New results showing mechanism, one pair of duplicates shown only once in one group. This remove redudency in results view.

7. Results showing mechanism improved, it now very fast and not slows down as old than too many results. Tested on 200 000 results (30 000 files).

8. Some bugs fixed (like disk selection)

9. New translations: Estonian,Italian.
