    MetaX 2.4.4 is a bugfix release:

    * Fixed chapter writing. Audio issues should be gone.
    * Improved search results interface.
    * Improved automatic title creation.

    MetaX will no longer edit the audio track within your mp4 file when editing the chapter track. Any issues caused by this, such as audio losing sync, should now be gone. One side effect of this improvement is that chapter writing is now much faster.

    The user interface has received a bit of a facelift in this version as well. The search results are now presented in a table, displaying the source that they came from. I welcome feedback on this new look.
