TagLib is a library for reading and editing audio meta data, commonly know as
- A clean, high level, C++ API to handling audio meta data.
- Format specific APIs for advanced API users.
- ID3v1, ID3v2, APE, FLAC, Xiph, iTunes-style MP4 and WMA tag formats.
- MP3, MPC, FLAC, MP4, ASF, AIFF, WAV, TrueAudio, WavPack, Ogg FLAC, Ogg
Vorbis, Speex and Opus file formats.
- Basic audio file properties such as length, sample rate, etc.
- Long term binary and source compatibility.
- Extensible design, notably the ability to add other formats or extend
- current formats as a library user.
- Full support for unicode and internationalized tags.
- Dual MPL and LGPL licenses.
- No external toolkit dependencies.
This package is the main metapackage for the TagLib Audio Meta-Data Library.
Historically packages using TagLib should depend on this package rather than
specific TagLib flavour even if the only vanilla (original) flavour is
available at the moment.

taglib (1.9.1-2.4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Provide a minimal symbols file (with no actual symbols yet)
to produce a shlibs dependency on libtag1v5 instead of
libtag1v5-vanilla, so that the use of dh_sameversiondep in
taglib-extras can work. (Closes: #794638)
2015-08-04 - Matthias Klose <>

taglib (1.9.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix multiple FTBFSes by confirming symbol files on more architectures.
* Symbol files require substitutions hence use pkgkde-symbolshelper at build
2013-11-04 - Modestas Vainius <>
taglib (1.9.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Drop RusXMMS flavour (libtag1-rusxmms package). The patch no longer
applies, it is hardly maintained upstream, its popcon is very low etc.
* Properly remove documentation in clean target.
* Update symbol files.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5: no further changes needed.
* Update Vcs-* URLs to canonical ones.
* Update Homepage URL in debian/control.
* Register taglib API documentation with doc-base.
* Update install files (new headers added).

* Update debian/copyright with a new project homepage on GitHub.
(Closes: #688504) Likewise, update debian/watch.
* Update upstream author information in debian/copyright.
* Build with -NDEBUG by default (unless noopt was requested). This will
suppress excessive pollution of stderr. (Closes: #632687)
2012-06-28 - Modestas Vainius <>
taglib (1.7.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
