Most likely not, because in 2.1 musicbrainz support requires ffmpeg which cannot be included in Fedora, and thus upgrading to 2.1 in F-17 would mean loss of functionality which as I interpret it is against the intent of Fedora's stable release updates policy.

At least kid3-qt from Rawhide works on F-17 (yum --enablerepo=rawhide upgrade kid-qt).  Haven't checked the main kid3 package, but if you need the features in 2.1, I suggest trying out the F-18 build.

Thanks for your response, but I'm confused... if there is a problem with 2.1 regarding ffmpeg why is it in the F-18 repository?  

Would it be better to then move kid3 then to the RPMFUSION repository or are there plans to compartmentalize the musicbrainz functionality as a separate plugin in the same manner that amarok/qmmp etc. handle mp3 support?  In other words, the main program would remain in Fedora, but the musicbrainz part would be in rpmfusion.

Changing feature sets between releases are a fact of life, and Fedora is a forward moving distribution, and F-18 is the development repo, most bleeding edge of it.  I'm not sure if this is what you asked though - there's no ffmpeg in Fedora so there's no problem with it in kid3 either...

I have no idea about your second question but I will point out to upstream what the ffmpeg dependency means to the kid3 package in Fedora.
