List --
There is a new version of the imdb-bulk-update.pl tool.

A user (xirtama) gave me a heads up that the latest version of imdb.pl
added a new field of output (Release Date), and was thus skewing the
values of the fields I was grabbing. This was causing blank Plots, cast,
etc. However, title, year, and the poster grab were still valid. I updated
the code and hopefully made it more resilient to change in future releases
of imdb.pl.

I also went ahead and added additional functionality to the -Folder flag
so that it can be used in conjunction with -N or -A. This will allow a
user to target a particular directory to search against. All other videos
will be ignored and paths will be ignored.

Please note the download link has changed.
