CDpedia 2.0

Hello everyone,

here it is: CDpedia 2.0.

IMPORTANT: Beta users of CDpedia 2.0 will have to run the command "Refresh iTunes" from under the Help menu, as the program won't do it automatically since you have used the beta, and due to the new capitalization insensitive matching it will not allow you to close the edit window, unless you have refreshed iTunes.
