32.0.8 (1/25/2024)

1. Fixed: MCWS Browse/Rules wasn't parsing the type properly.
2. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukáč).
3. Changed: Switched from DLNA to Remote for MCWS Browse/Rules.
4. Fixed: The manage library fields dialog could be very small when showing for the first time.
5. Fixed: MC could not load EXIF "User Comment" tag written by other apps (e.g. Lightroom) if the image was previously tagged by MC.

32.0.7 (1/23/2024)

1. Changed: The MCWS function Browse/Rules takes an optional type parameter and you can specify "tree" or "DLNA".
2. Fixed: View extras playback would always start on file zero instead of the selected file.
3. Changed: The MCWS function to show the user interface returns that it's not able to run if a library is currently loading.
4. Changed: XMP "Event" tag is mapped to MC's "Album" field.  Removed support for custom field "Event".
5. Changed: MCC_TREE_SET_EXPANDED with -1 saves and restores again (but Ctrl;G still uses 0 to collapse all).
6. Changed: MCC_TREE_SET_EXPANDED with 1 expands the tree roots but not everything (because that was overly slow).
7. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
8. Changed: Added Type to the MCWS Library/Fields so it can report if the field is a user field, saved in the tag, etc.
9. Fixed: The "List (loose)" data type did not show in the Manage Library Fields dialog (list fields that don't check acceptable values).
10. Changed: MC "Genre" field is mapped to IPTC:ObjectAttributeReference array tags, and to XMP:IntellectualGenre tag.
11. Changed: Reversed the change on "Camera" field made in build 5.  Now "Camera" will be editable.  MC will split the fields into Make and Model when saving to tags.
12. Changed: MC will simplify camera make and model strings by removing duplicates and wordy phrases.  For example,"NIKON CORPORATION" will become "Nikon" for Make tag, and "NIKON D310" will become "D310" for Model.

32.0.6 (1/18/2024)

1. Fixed: Theater View playback of "Play All" did not start on the selected file.
2. Changed: MC will not only remove XMP, IPTC, MJMD image segments, but also remove the entire EXIF segment when executing "Remove Tags".
3. Changed: Removed the Media Library node at the root of Browse/Rules in MCWS.
4. Fixed: The new version of the upgrade installer didn't handle remote libraries and libraries in non-standard paths.
5. NEW: Skins and Trackinfos courtesy of English Tiger.
6. NEW: TrackInfo_InsertURL(fieldname) used to load a Hexified version of the named field into a TrackInfo Plugin.

32.0.5 (1/17/2024)

1. NEW: Holding shift while pressing right arrow in the tree expands all (like the recently added menu item).
2. Fixed: The combobox height could be too tall when editing list fields.
3. Changed: Some tuning to the new Browse/Rules function (use full path, named categories, etc.).
4. Changed: "Camera" field is made "Clear-only", so users will not be able to change camera Make and Model in EXIF image tags.  Also user-defined custom fields "Make" and "Model" will not be supported in EXIF handling.

32.0.4 (1/16/2024)

1. Changed: Removed the Back to Exit function from Theater View introduced in 32.0.1.
2. NEW: Added Browse/Rules to MCWS to return the rules used when building the browse tree.
3. Changed: MC's "Genre" field is no longer mapped to ITPC/XMP Category tag.
4. Fixed: Some navigation issues for Prime Video in Theater View.

32.0.3 (1/15/2024)

1. Fixed: Analyzer could show extreme numbers when playing noise files (for not a number values) but now it simply shows a question mark.
2. Changed: In the tag window, list data type fields show the values as a list (instead of list edit type fields) which makes genre, artist, etc. show lists.
3. Changed: The MCWS UserInterface/Show now returns success if it doesn't need to change the selection.
4. Changed: Back to exit Theater View only exits if a half second has passed since the last back click.
5. Fixed: The new track info colors had the red and blue channels reversed.
6. Changed: When saving to XMP and ITPC image tags, "Artist" field that contains semi-colon separated list in MC will be saved in multiple "creator" (XMP) and "by-line" (IPTC) tags, instead of a single one.
7. Fixed: MC did not read XMP tags "xmp:Label" and "xmp:Rating" from the XMP segment.

32.0.2 (1/12/2024)

1. Changed: Updated the copyrights to 2024.
2. Changed: Made a few improvements to the new download library and files tool.
3. Fixed: TRACKINFO_INSERT_BACK_COLOR / TRACKINFO_INSERT_TEXT_COLOR were not working.
4. NEW: Added the right-click tree option to expand all the items under a selection (instead of just the selection).
5. Fixed: Some XMP image tags that involve alternate language arrays were not saved properly.

32.0.1 (1/9/2024)

1. Fixed: When playing an ATSC channel, the context menu item "Audio Programs -> Use current audio stream as default" did not work for some channels.

14. NEW: Full screen video window will have a Minimize button in addition to the Window Size button and Close button.

21. NEW: Copy Library and Files from Server.
22. NEW: When recording TV shows, "TV Channel Number" field is filled with appropriate data for all channel types that carry such data (<major channel>-<minor channel> for ATSC, <logical channel number> for other types).  For ATSC and DVB, if recording is in WTV format the file is tagged with this data too.

32. Changed: Removed some old code that no longer has any effect for playing a live TV channel on a Library Server client (using a tuner on the server).
33. NEW: Added "Duplicate" to the right-click menu on library views to make a new copy of the view.
34. NEW: Added TRACKINFO_INSERT_BACK_COLOR and TRACKINFO_INSERT_TEXT_COLOR to track info pages so the hex of each color can be loaded.
35. Fixed: Improved support for JPEG images with uncommon color encoding.

39. Changed: A 400 error is returned from MCWS when the function name is not found.

If I look at the remote view definitions, I see an entry Playlists at the end which has no child categories and no search information associated with it (I'm fairly sure it's part of the default setup).

However this entry is not present in the MCWS Browse/Rules output so looks like a bug to me

Struggled with Windows security :-X Nightmare but got there in the end. Only been on my PCs since 2015 but download clamped up as unrecognised software. So Windows knows nothing and isn't learning at all. And in a year's time I'll have forgotten this and run into the same issue no doubt :)

Thanks as ever. MC32 running on one, just 2 more to process, fingers crossed.

Regards

3. Changed: The MCWS function to show the user interface returns that it's not able to run if a library is currently loading.

This implementation just seems wrong.  It catches one possible case out of hundreds or thousands.

I have a driver program that allows making MCC, MCWS, and command line calls.  When the library is changed, there is a settling period before MCWS should be callable again because there are many MCWS calls that are library-specific; otherwise, the data from the currently loaded library is returned, not the one being loaded.

I really think that Load/Library needs to block until the requested library is loaded and MCWS is ready to return its status against the requested library.  Otherwise, it makes chained operations such as:

Code: [Select]
mcws load library main && mcws info playlists
unreliable without inserting randomly long, arbitrary pauses:

Code: [Select]
mcws load library main && sleep N && mcws info playlists
where N entirely depends on machine speed, library size and system load.  Since command line programs are generally stateless, later commands in the chains can't know previous commands loaded a library.  Instead, the call to load the library should block so the the command can exit when the library has been successfully loaded and MCWS is ready to work with the newly loaded library.

The Library/Import has a Block attribute which allows long-running imports to be blocked until MC has imported the files.  Load/Library should support the same.

The issue is that loading a library tears the web service functions down so they simply can't wait to return or it would just lock up.

Something has to restart MCWS right?  I suppose you have no way to inform the higher level.

No matter, I'm handling it by delaying exit in my Library/Load calling function by pausing briefly until MCWS shuts down, and then test polling for the connection to come alive again.

Thanks.
