I don't really understand or find an explanation about the difference between "show similar songs" and "new matchlist": I use the same rule set for both, but I don't get (exact) the same results. Can you help me?

    It should be pretty much the same.
    How do they differ?

    Looks like you sorted the match window by name, but didn't sort the playlist.

    That said, come to think of it, creating a match list involves a bit more logic in that beaTunes actually tries to have songs follow each other that match.

    When just showing similar songs, it only shows songs that are similar to the selected song, not messing with the order at all. Perhaps that explains it.
