I have been using nested crates for almost a year, and I like this functionality quite a bit. I also like that you can save searches using the library on that branch.
However, I’m also digging Mixxx 2.3, and I see that nested crates are not going to be integrated moving forward. Instead, we have the very interesting Aoide library, And custom tags which is based on Aoide.
It looks like Aoide support is suspended in favor of custom tags, and this will be introduced in 2.3. It also looks, from the changelog, that stable releases come out about 2 months after beta releases. If this is the case, I will just wait a couple weeks and download 2.3 with the custom tags.
Otherwise, I’m curious to know if it’s worth compiling the custom tags or Aoide branch now, and if so, which one. I saw hints on github that Aoide may be fully integrated into Mixxx in the future, and it actually looks more interesting from its screenshot.
