Gapless playback w/ local files

The new gapless playback feature doesn't appear to work with local files.  Is there a reason for that?  Thanks.

I noticed this too. Is it a bug?
First was the record, then the cassette, the CD, then came along Spotify... that really did change everything!

You now have 30 Android solutions.
You're awesome! 100 Desktop Solutions is a great achievement.
Wow! Three years; you're practically a veteran.
One thousand kudos. That's a ton!

Well that's kind of crap. Gapless is necessary for a lot of the albums I listen to - is there any plan to fix this? It makes me not want to use Spotify for my local files. If I can't do that, then I might as well not use Spotify...
