Release Notes

This is a beta release. Main addition are commands to query MCE for audio library information (Artists, Albums, Tracks) and to play be the retrieved information.

Note all the list, play, and queue* will take an index (returned from the list-artists) - using this index makes the commands fast

New library commands:
1. list-artists: returns a list of artists in the library (very slow - my 1K artists takes 1 minute to return)
2. list-artist-songs: returns a list of songs by a given artist (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
3. list-artist-albums: returns a list of albums by a given artist (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
4. list-albums: returns a list of all albums (can be slow)
5. list-album-songs: returns a list of songs on the specified album (using the index returned by #1 or #3 makes this fast)
6. list-all-custom: returns everything using the specified custom format (see artist.template to define formats)
7. list-artist-custom: returns everything by a specified artist using the specified custom format (see artist.template to define formats)
8. list-album-custom: returns everything on a specified album using the specified custom format (see artist.template to define formats)
9. list-song-custom: returns information on a specific track using the specified custom format (see artist.template to define formats)
10. play-audio-artist: Starts playing everything by the specified artist (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
11. play-audio-album: Starts playing everything on the specified album (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
12. play-audio-song: Starts playing the specified track (using the index returned by #1-#4 makes this fast)
13. queueaudio-artist: Adds everything by the specified artist to the now playing queue (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
14. queueaudio-album: Adds everything on the specified albumto the now playing queue (using the index returned by #1 makes this fast)
15. queueaudio-song : Adds the specified track (using the index returned by #1-#4 makes this fast)

Other new commands:
