I select tracks and nothing happens. Nothing at all. The synchronization helped. The box popped up in the upper right corner asking me if I want to analyze the songs I just added. After I have them analyzed and it says it's done, the new songs don't show up in my library, and my song total doesn't change. Weird thing is, the new songs show up in iTunes.

So, I have to do all that every time I add music?
No, that would be super-annoying. Thanks for making me aware of the issue. Please update to beaTunes 5.2.5—it should fix the issue.
Background: when beaTunes works with iTunes, it indeed adds the new files to iTunes and then re-reads the new state from iTunes. What went wrong was two things. 1) beaTunes attempted to read the state too soon. iTunes hadn't created a new XML dump yet, so the new tracks did not show up. 2) Even after the XML contained the new tracks, beaTunes failed to rebuild all playlists (the library is also just a list). The fix now waits for a new XML file to be available (which can take a little while) and then correctly rebuilds all playlists.
