18.0.143 (3/5/2013)

1. Fixed: Removed printing options from menu as they are not available yet on Mac and could cause a crash.
2. Changed: Changed text and link on "Help -> Registration Info" pop-up to reflect timeout and no license needed.
3. Fixed: Using cmd-Q to exit the program would result in a crash.
4. Fixed: Program text was garbled in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean translations.

18.0.142 (2/28/2013)

1. Fixed: SACD ISO files were not importing.
2. Fixed: Several cover art issues.
3. NEW: Internet POST requests work (makes Last.fm, etc.).
4. Fixed: If a background thread showed a message box, it would lead to a hang.
5. NEW: File move, rename, copy dialog functional. Not recommended for large scale or critical file operations until more testing is done.
6. Fixed: Problems with support of 32 bit only OSX systems, e.g. playback of MP3 files.

18.0.141 (2/26/2013)

1. Fixed: Sound devices that requested planar instead of interleaved data were not working.

18.0.140 (2/25/2013)

1. Fixed: The program would not run on systems without SSE 4.1 support.

3. Fixed: Thread priorities were not implemented fully on Mac.

18.0.139 (2/22/2013)

1. Fixed: Wrong options file was being used in the 138 build resulting in frequent crashes.

2. Changed: Register dynamic libs on first run after install rather than every startup.
3. Changed: Auto-update partially works. It will show whether version is up to date and download new version. Need to manually install.
4. Fixed: Show/Set update download directory not working.
5. Fixed: Search in options dialog not working.
6. Fixed: Encoder properties dialog in options not working.

The problem in SL that when deleting smart playlists that MC aborted has been corrected with this release.
However the issue when picking display view still brings up a full screen view of the album cover but the only way to get out of this view seems to be to shutdown the computer.  Steps followed where start playing file, click on display view (cntrl+3) and then the full view is shown with no way to get out.  Pressing the minimize button shrinks the page, but it springs back immediately.
I hope this explains the issue.

Still can't get any sound out of my USB soundcard in version  18.0.143.
OS is 10.6.8 on MacMini server (core2duo).
Built-in output does work.

Is there any kind of ETA on getting the sync/connection between libraries working? The way my library is set up that will just make things much easier to have my master windows server be the backend for my mac. Not rushing anyone, just want to know when I should peer back in.

Thanks!

We hope to get Mac to Mac networking going in the next several weeks.

I don't know when or whether we'll be able to do Win to Mac.

Please use another thread for anything requiring a discussion.  This thread is reserved for bug reports.

Try a double click.

The screen provides a full size view of the album cover and in the top left corner a - and + button the red button is not red and is not active.  Double clicking on the yellow - button or the green + button has no effect  I have to press the computer shutdown to get out, fortunatley MC being active prevents the computer from shutting down.

This version seems to play the most steady of all of them for me (or else I've just mastered the correct settings finally).  However, it still crashes immediately upon making a new playlist.  I click "add playlist" then type in the name of the playlist in the box.  When I press "enter" the entire program shuts off the visual display yet the music continues to play.  I can't get the screen to come back up unless I exit the program.  Very odd....

EDIT:  I still get very bad stuttering when the program goes into "get cover art" mode (seemingly on its own) and I can't make it quit seeking cover art and have to force quit and reopen the program.  I posted this under the stuttering audio thread, too....
