    This refers to mainly albums with various contributing artists - I usually
    put "various" as the album artist, and for each track have the contributing
    artist. Sometimes a track is separated from the album because the album
    artist shows the contributing artist. In Beta 1, all I needed to do was
    change the album artist of the track to "various", the contributing artist
    would stay correct, and the track would merge with the other tracks to form
    the complete album.

    Now in Beta 2, if I change the album artist to "various", it also
    automatically changes the contributing artist to "various". How can I
    prevent this??

    Try making the changes in the "detail" view rather than in the "tile" view.
    Also once you enter the change hit enter to complete it.
