SongKong 5.6 - Modify Mp3 Metadata without new file creation

When modifying the metadata for Mp3 files SongKong would use the existing metadata space including any padding space to write the new metadata. But if there was not enough room to write the metadata then a new temporary file would be created and then the files renamed instead of directly modifying the existing file.

The trouble with this approach  was that this meant that the file now had a new creation date, also some customers had restrictive permissions setup so that there was problems creating the temporary files.

We have now improved file modification so no temporary files are required. This problem was specific to Mp3 files it does not occur for other audio formats.
