Minor design changes for the high-resolution Explorer icons.

May 31, 2019

Refreshes Resonic icon set for Explorer.
While this may seem unnecessary at first it improves readability at all medium to small sizes. There is a new 32x32 icon set, and the tiny icons you typically get in Explorer's 'Details' view become useful as they now share the same look and color scheme as Resonic's file list. The little squares hint at the file's content kind (lossless, lossy, music, video, or rex).

The first Lab update in a while, but we have been very active these last months.
Here's a small portion of the metadata supported by our stronger-than-ever Resonic Meta Core presented in the brand new meta panel coming to Resonic Pro 0.9.2.
Our full focus is on database and search features. According to our philosophy on metadata, this is laying down the foundations for these features.
And yes, we do support Soundminer content.
Preview builds are always available on our Slack.
