This is an alpha release of Media Center for Mac.  If you aren't comfortable with a few problems, please wait a few days.

Please read this before downloading.

Download:
http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v18/latest/MediaCenter180146.dmg

18.0.146 (3/8/2013)

1. Changed: Added support for more audio hardware (Lynx Hilo, RME Fireface UC, etc.).
2. Changed: Double-click, escape, etc. work on the playback display to exit Display View.
3. Fixed: Using some tools like Analyze Audio and Get Cover Art could prevent the program from closing even if they were no longer running.

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.
2. Fixed: Cover art next to audio files was not loading properly.

18.0.140 (2/25/2013)

1. Fixed: The program would not run on systems without SSE 4.1 support.
2. Changed: Retooled SSE assembly everywhere in the program so that SSSE 3 is the low-water mark for SSE acceleration (previously SSE 4.1 was required in most places to get acceleration).
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.

1. NEW: Added support for Core Audio exclusive output in Options > Audio > Output mode settings (enabled by default).
2. Fixed: Memory playback was not working properly.

18.0.137 (2/21/2013)

1. Fixed: Audio format converter working.
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.

Happy to report that the double click works in SL to escape from display view. :)

I see you also skipped version .144 and .145.  Trying to keep on our toes?

I'll check the issue I was have with smart list next.

the issue I was having in .143 is still there with the smart list.  The screen sort of disappears, I have tried to capture what I see with a screen shot, as provided in the attachment.  What you see is some of the form, but it can recover.

2012 Retina Macbook Pro
2.6GHz i7; 16GB RAM
Mountain Lion 10.8.2
no AV or software firewalls installed

When outputing through the rMBP headphone/optical out, I can change volume using the rMBP volume control, but when using the two USB DACs that I have (Calyx Coffee & Meridian Explorer), output volume level doesn't change even when my on-screen volume change indicator shows I am changing volume via rMBP volume controls.  I see you have added more audio hardware compatibility, so I figure more & more will be added as well.

Some builds are only released on Windows.  Some only on Mac.  It depends on what has changed.

Do those USB DACs have a system volume that does something (even at the OS level)?

If not, try Internal Volume:

In my 32 bit 10.6.8, mp3's play for about 10 seconds then MC terminates.
It's not a particular audio device, I get the same behavior with BlueTooth.
It is possible that it's got something to do with having the files on a afp share on linux which is what I switched to.

Now the library management is almost stable.
Imported MP3 and AIFF (with no tags but this is low priority now)

Most important thing: no sound at all (Something went wrong etc..) to built-in output or Echo Af4 (firewire)

You may have to do something to make your personal Library directory visible in the finder.

Is your media on the local hard drive or on a nas/network share?

Mine seems to have trouble with files on a share but seems fine with local files.

I'm noticing that the "DSP" settings page sometimes comes up "under" the settings page.  I couldn't click on anything until I moved the settings page and got to the DSP page.

Not a big deal, just figured I'd add it to the list.

After extended playing (through the Files view) of + 8 hours, the MC "music" interface was locked. I couldn't change the view or the track, though the playback buttons still worked (pause, stop, forward) and the main menu still let me exit without a crash.

I'm seeing the same things... it's as if the mouse can nolonger click.  Sometimes I can still do things with the keyboard and JRemote etc still seem to work.

Yes, the program losses focus once a playlist or album has been played. I find that multiple mouse clicks, both left and right usually bring back the ability to select something else.

Another point, the window at top that displays information about the track thatís playing, after a while losses the ability to display the bottom line of information, this is replaced by Ė Volume: N/A Ė which is a little strange as this is not a selected option in any of the schemes. Once lost it rarely displays correctly again, I have noticed that this always occurs when the screen goes off (no screensaver other that this) but can happen at anytime.
