Version 1.4.1 released
« on: September 02, 2010, 22:11:32 »
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.

Although I understand that making/supporting a good, useful piece of software costs money, I'm not willing to pay for it.
The reason is simple: I have a HUGE collection of mp3's (>100k songs) and so far Similarity wasn't able to go through that collection without hanging or crashing.  :(
I'm sorry...

It's not true, all crashes what we received latter caused by 3rd party decoders (except very rare out of memory situation) , we can't rewrite this decoders, they not ours, examples of problematic decoders mmf:DivXMFSource.dll, dshow:OpenQuickTime.
You can disable Similarity decoders or limit they file extensions, example replace "*" with something like "mp3 aac mp4", after this, no other files touched by universal decoders.
