Does BeaTunes play nice with iTunes 12.2?

I'm on BeaTunes 4.0.24 and my Mac is requesting to update iTunes to 12.2…

Ordinarily, I would go ahead, but this is a big iTunes leap. I'm not sure whether any of the newness will be worth a five-minute update, but while I ponder taking that plunge I want to find out whether it would screw up any BeaTunes functionality.

Anybody know of any conflicts?

    So far, I'm not aware of any issues.

    Yes. Although BeaTunes analyses the music files as expected, I have found that apps and booklets are now turning up, with offers to fix cover art and other tags in the 'Inspect' function. iTunes, BeaTunes 4.0.24. Also I have noticed that iTunes has been adding cover art to files that I know didn't have any, sometimes inaccurately (not a BeaTunes issue).

    Good this works :-)
    Those functions have been available in beaTunes 4 since it's been released.

    Oh dear! Too late now. No idea why iTunes has to mess with tags. As long as all of my music is actually there I should be fine. I still haven't got the iCloud library working, I might give it a rest for a version or two. The three-month free trial is the main reason that they haven't got massive backlash. iTunes Match has been known to be broken for a long time, yet they clearly based Apple Music on it. Marketing must be too influential within the company. I don't get the whole streaming thing anyway, I like my files. :-)

    Hunter/gatherer? ;-)

    There is something to be said for simply being able to play stuff when and wherever you want and... yes! ... giving a file to a good friend to listen to.

    Plus, your stuff is still there, even when you haven't paid the monthly fee.
