Error after update to Beet 1.4.9 "Plugin types defines flexible field danceable which has already been defined with another type."

Hi, today I updated Beets to version 1.4.9 through the command:
pip install -U beets

When I run
beet import -it
with the import path appended.

I get the following error

Traceback (most recent call last):

beets.plugins.PluginConflictException: Plugin types defines flexible field danceable which has already been defined with another type.

As far as I understand the error it has to do with a field in the Types plugin that has already defined differently but I have no idea where. I’ve read through the changelog but couldn’t find anything that pointed to a change regarding Types plugin.

Any ideas to fix this would be very welcome :slight_smile:

Thanks, Jan

A recent release added built-in type declarations to the acousticbrainz plugin, so you no longer need those manual type declarations via the types plugin.

Thanks for the fast response @adrian.
Does that mean that I can remove all Types declarations like danceable: float in my config except the ones that I use for the inline plugin?
Because I define e.g. av_bitrate: int among others.

You can remove all the ones for the tags that come from the acousticbrainz plugin.

Terrific thanks for the additional info.
