Classical Extras provides tagging enhancements for artists/performers and, in particular, utilises MB’s hierarchy of works to provide work/movement tags. All options are set through a user interface in Picard options->plugins.
While it is designed to cater for the complexities of classical music tagging, it may also be useful for other music which has more than just basic song/artist/album data.

Provide option (in advanced tab) to disable Classical Extras processing if no file is present; this enables (for example) single discs from box sets to be loaded without incurring the additional processing overhead for all the other discs. The settings of the main Picard options "translate_artist_names" and "standardize_artists" is now saved along with the Classical Extras options so that they can be used to over-ride the displayed options. This is because they interact with the Classical Extras options in certain cases. Also:- graceful recovery from authentication failure; improved UI - more scalable; minor bug fixes

Fixes to allow (1) disabling of 'use_cache' across releases which may share works (previously, shared works left incomplete look-ups if use_cache was disabled) and (2) works which might appear in their own right and also have arrangements. Also, re-set certain important options to defaults on starting Picard, namely: 'use_cache' set to True, 'log_debug', 'log_info' and 'options_overwrite' set to False; the user will need to deliberately re-set these on starting Picard if required - this is to prevent inadvertently leaving these flags in an abnormal state.
Subject to any bugs and code-tidying, this is intended to form the next pull request.
EDIT 29/12/17: The UI in classical_extras.zip (not the source files) has been updated to allow scrolling and use with smaller screens.

Assets 3

Revised treatment of "conditional" tag mapping. Previously, if multiple sources were specified for a tag mapping and the "conditional" flag set, only the first non-empty source was used. Now all sources will be mapped to a tag if it was empty before executing the current tag mapping line. This is considered to be more intuitive and leads to less complex mapping lines. However, it some cases it may be necessary to split a line from a previous version if the previous behaviour was specifically desired. Improved algorithms for extending metadata with title info. Bug fixes.
