Does not support id3v2.4 tags (introduced in 2000!)

id3lib3.8.3 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Discovered whilst trying to figure out why the various id3lib tools did not report any ID3 metadata for a bunch of MP3 files I'd created (with metadata) using Audacity.

After some research it seems that id3lib 3.8.3 was released in 2003 and hasn't been updated since and does not support id3v2.4 tags. v2.4 was introduced in the year 2000 and it's now 2018.

At the very least the debian/control Description field should be amended to make it clear that this library and any tools depending on it do not support/show v2.4.
