    I have noticed that the problem where some tracks of an album are not
    recognised to be part of the same album as other tracks (i.e. two albums
    appear instead of one) has improved since Beta1, but I still have some albums
    where this happens. All the album info (artist, album name, year, genre) is
    exactly the same, but the tracks won't merge into one album - how can I fix
    this?

  2. I have found that if you manually type the same information as appears to be
    in the Album Artist field over the top of itself, then you will have more
    luck with merging. v11 appears to "fake" the Album Artist being filled in if
    the field is actually empty and the Contributing Artist is not. It's not an
    obvious solution, and I don't know if MS intends to undo the behaviour
    change in v11 that causes it.
