<<Back to software description

Changes for v2.0 Preview 8 - v2.0 Preview 10

  • – [Fixed] Lyrics “Search again” doesn’t work
  • – [Fixed] High CPU and memory usage



Changes for v2.0 Preview 7 - v2.0 Preview 8

  • – [Changed] Updated the Croatian translation
  • – [Fixed] Albums are not fetched based on Album Artist when choosing a artist in the Artists screen
  • – [Fixed] Option to toggle artists is missing since last preview
  • – [Fixed] Spectrum analyzer stutters on Now Playing screen
  • – [Fixed] Artists and Genre screens don’t show songs for Cyrillic alphabet
  • – [Fixed] Artists info pane displays white stars instead of actual artist pictures



Changes for v2.0 Preview 3 - v2.0 Preview 5

  • This preview fixes 5 bugs and brings back the light theme. It is very stable, so if you’re still using version 1.5.x, I encourage you to try out this preview. Especially if you wish to have the latest fixes and try out the cool new features that version 2.0 brings.
  • Enough talking. Here’s the change log:
  • – [Changed] Updated the German translation
  • – [Changed] Updated the Swedish translation
  • – [Changed] Removed song covers in playlists. Loading so many images in memory causes a huge memory footprint.
  • – [Changed] Created and enabled the light theme
  • – [Fixed] Fixed incorrect sorting for Artists and Genres because the prefix “The” wasn’t ignored anymore since preview 2
  • – [Fixed] Fixed invisible text on some context menus
  • – [Fixed] Fixed an issue deleting entries from playlists, after files have been removed from or renamed on disk.
  • – [Fixed] Fixed playback order being alphabetical when enqueuing from Explorer (This would not have been a problem if humans and computers used the same sort order. One hour of my life I’ll never get back)
  • – [Fixed] Fixed inconsistent UI when the player reaches the minimum window size



Changes for v2.0 Preview 1 - v2.0 Preview 2

  • The road to this preview was challenging. I decided to add 2 very demanded features: Folder view and Smart playlists.
  • I’ve kept delaying the implementation of Smart playlists (since version 1.3, I believe), because I was scared of it. That fear appeared to be justified: it was a colossal task. So, I’m glad the basic implementation is done. Adding extra functionality should be a lot easier. Folder view was not so hard. But I took some shortcuts to make my life easier and to keep the code base clean.
  • So now, I’m very curious about user feedback concerning both these new features.
  • The look and feel of the UI didn’t change much since the last preview. What did change however: I decided to remove the drawer menu and hidden hamburger icon. Two reasons to motivate that choice:
  • 1. Accessing the drawer’s items required too many clicks
  • 2. The hamburger menu was hidden behind the headphone logo, and that wasn’t clear for everyone.
  • Instead, the options from the drawer menu are now in a totally visible hamburger menu at the top right of the main window.
  • Adding music should now also be easier than it ever was. The collection settings have been moved to a “Add music” option in the new hamburger menu.
  • Alright enough talking. Below is the full change log for this preview. I hope you enjoy it.
  • And don’t forget, if you enjoy my efforts: please consider donating. Thanks!
