MMS 1.1.0 alpha 2 released

Postby arj » Sun Jul 29, 2007 9:11 pm

I'm pleased to announce a new alpha release of MMS 1.1.0 (revno 1024 :D). This new version comes with a few new features, a number of bugfixes and some code cleanup. It's just one (natural) step closer to a beta release.

I think it's very important to release early and often with alpha releases as they often have glaring bugs that are reported and fixed quickly after a release.

For this release I went through the bug database and fixed all the major bugs reported against 1.1.0. So the bug database is hungry again, looking for your bug reports :-)

Download here

New features:
- Improve navigation by displaying the current folder in the header, making it easier to navigate and remember where one is
- Add movie information to list view
In list view, MMS will now display information about the movie such as
length, audio codec etc.
- Improved search in plugins. Allows one to search all folders inside a plugin (like the global search)
- Support for submitting audio playback pattern to last.fm

Bugfixes:
- Fix #231, better description of audio device config setting
- Don't crash on no input plugins found
- Don't display fancy game in configure unless game is enabled
- Fix #228 - Icon view mode for movie plugin in 16:9
- Fix #226 - lower CPU-usage on idle
- Fix #229 - Movie database is not updated
- Cleanup graphical modes
- images in all plugins are now the same size
- images are better centered
- various small bugfixes
- optimize busy indicator by not drawing when nothing has changed
- Stop on make error since it's almost always fatal
- In movie playback inside mms, on button click to minimize movie
playback, eat the input so that it only has the effect of exiting
fullscreen mode and not a double meaning
- Larger thumbs in list view
- Save the size of the thumb so that we won't have this "please clear
your cache" anymore
- Small German translation fix
- Fix wrong zoom on some pictures
- Fix #234 - Games Module: MMS doesn't show some of the .zip roms of a folder
- Fix reload + inotify not working in games
- Show more results when searching in imdb for something like macbeth
- Fix #113 - (process:22751): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_main_quit: assertion `main_loops != NULL' failed
- Fix #107 - Rename Xine to cxfe(Xine) in movie options
- Fix #235 - regression? Options are not saved
- Fix #215 - Take care of thumbs-creation with Y larger X
- Fix two bugs in audio
- Playlist was not updated after pressing stop
- Playlist commands was not working
- Make inotify more fault-tolerant
- Fix bug in general search for audio file
- Make dxr3 compile with debug enabled
- Make dvb compile
- Make lcd compile

i'm testing the alpha release and the new arquitecture of mms is realy fantastic, but the screensaver would be a independent feature.

compile problems:
can't detect if immsd is installed
only python 2.4 ? (--enable-python)
can't detect upnp libs are installed. (--enable-upnp)

runing problems
the screensaver exit on press next track.

startup problems
don't detect new files or directories on start mms.
problem with upnp and dhcp config. don't start mms if ip change.

see tomorrow
