The classical_extras plugin is broken upstream and causes crashes for anyone who uses this plugin:
Pushing this update could cause confusing breakage. Unfortunately the classical_extras plugin is shipped in default installations, versus an individual user decision to install and use the plugin. Upstream recommends holding off on 2.2 upgrades until an all-clear is given for classical_extras. Currently, they recommend manually replacing the ZIP file with a downloaded version from the MusicBrainz website. Perhaps a patch file could be written to fix this in Fedora, but I'm not sure if it is worth the work of a patch or to wait for a proper upstream fix.
Thanks for the report... the actual ticket is here: https://tickets.metabrainz.org/projects/PICARD/issues/PICARD-1615?filter=allopenissues
Appears that the plugin was using an unsupported function. I double checked and this plugin must be manually activated, so we can't be sure how many people are actually using it - therefore, I'll open a bugzilla ticket with information to either deactivate the plugin or backout to the previous release until this is fixed.
Thanks for digging further. As I understand, classical users are a more narrow subset of the Picard user base. Do you think it makes sense to ship this, knowing that some advanced users may end up with a crash loop every time they open the "Options" menu? Curious what you think makes sense here.
Well, it was pushed to stable before you commented on the issue. Since this plugin is not installed by default I don't think that justifies pulling the entire update, especially since we don't know how many people are really impacted. I personally don't use the classical_extras plugin and don't have it installed. If people know enough to install, I'm assuming they know how to uninstall it and search for issues regarding this on the internet. I've opened a bugzilla ticket with the links the report you referenced and the actual ticket. I believe that is sufficient.
This update has been pushed to stable.
