When encoding an MP3 file (from Flac) the genre tag in IDv1 section is always value 255 (empty, unknown), regardless of what it is in the source file or what I selected from the genre drop down list. The genre file in the ID3v2.3 section is right anyway.

Using v1.0.21a.

    Thanks for reporting this!

    The problem is now fixed in CVS and the fix will be in v1.0.22.

    The problem only affects fre:ac 1.0.x which uses libid3 to support ID3 tags. The library expects the genre to be supplied in a specific format when writing ID3v1 tags. fre:ac snapshots use their own implementation of ID3v1 and do not exhibit this problem.

    I will set this ticket to pending status and close it once v1.0.22 is released.

    This bug was fixed in fre:ac 1.0.22 released two weeks ago. Closing...
