    Track.getSimilar ?

    Any reason get Similar Tracks method is missing from Tracks calls in v2.0?

    Thanks,
    - Lee

  • Hmmm, yes, that's a little disappointing. I realize this was sort of an unofficial/experimental feature in the old webservices, but it actually worked pretty nicely, and one of my Quod Libet plugins rather depends on it...

    On that note: Any idea when the 1.0 webservices will stop working?

    The new API *does* look fantastic btw, and kudos for not encouraging users to give out their passwords to other applications! :)

  • Also seemingly gone are the user tag urls like:

    http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/user/%s/tracktags.xml?artist=%s&track=%s
    http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/use/%s/artisttags.xml?artist=%s
    http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/user/%s/albumtags.xml?artist=%s&album=%s

    These are essential for synchronizing my tags between last.fm and local collections. Again, I have created a plugin to do just this...

    Kids, be patient. As the announcement makes very clear: this is an early release, we will certainly keep adding services.

    We'll continue supporting the 1.0 webservices for some time, and we'll let you know a ways in advance when we do eventually deprecate them.

    Thanks Dad, we'll try to be more patient.

    The new API is looking ace! I look forward to the new services!

    Cheers,
