Details

This is the 2nd part of adding a metadata section to the manual. The new subsection includes two tables to visualize the featuresset that is supported by our metadata parser for a) generic metadata tags (like ID3, APE, Vorbis, MP4, ASF) and b) codec specific metadata (like supported for .tta, .mod, etc).

Next steps will be to add important limitations of our parsers. In the forums questions about limited string lengths for comment or artist names are raised.
This task depends upon

- RealAudio container format supports AAC, AC3, ATRAC3 and Cook (similar to m4a which supports AAC and ALAC)
- RealAudio G2 (Cook) is the supported "Real Audio" format
- ATRAC3 is the supported "Sony Audio" format

Added comments, removed the gapless table entry, and corrected PNG support.

Removed gapless from 2nd featureset table as well. Deleted note about gapless support.

v10 with slight changes has been submitted (r29894).

v12 introduces an overview of the featureset for each codec. For now the table shows seek/resume/gapless. I am not sure whether ATSC A/52 (AC3), ADX, ATRAC3, COOK or Dialogic telephony type support gapless.
