Smartcrawl Shortcodes in Titles

So I grabbed the newest version of Smartcrawl and I can no longer render out shortcodes in the meta titles of my pages. I tried using the_title() for pages and then add_filter( 'the_title', 'do_shortcode' ); which renders out title shortcodes just fine on the page but not in the meta title. It does however work if I manually put <title><?php the_title(); ?></title> after wp_head but then Smartcrawl doesn't hook in to be able to edit from the smartcrawl settings panel. It used to work just fine but I would assume you're now processing the title tag via wp_head and due to the title tag placement, Wordpress can't process the shortcodes. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
