18.0.182 (5/14/2013)

1. Fixed: Tagging in the action window could crash.

18.0.181 (5/10/2013)

1. Fixed: Some m4a and alac files would not import or play because of a mismatched sample count in the mp4 STTS header.  We now ignore this error since it shouldn't impact playback performance.
2. Fixed: Radio streams would 'click' every few seconds because metadata was not getting parsed out of the stream.

18.0.180 (5/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Tooltips were not showing properly in the last few builds.
2. Fixed: Clicking away from an in-place list edit control would not reliably stop the editing.
3. Fixed: DoP bitstreaming of DSD was not working with some devices.
4. Fixed: Hardware with complex buffer arrangement could crash when playing to only some of the channels.
5. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
6. Changed: Updated Polish translation (thanks Janusz Grzybek).
7. Changed: Czech language translation updated (thanks Johnny B).

18.0.179 (5/7/2013)

1. Changed: Main windows are no longer marked as 'not opaque' (as this could cause performance issues on some machines).
2. Fixed: The 'Tempo & Pitch' DSP plugin was causing crashes during playback.
3. Fixed: Metadata in languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc. was not displaying correctly - just drawing square boxes.
4. NEW: Added support for play / pause, previous, next, and volume media keys[.
5. Changed: 3GA files are treated like AAC / MP4 audio files, so they can import, play, and tag.
6. Fixed: Using the popup expression editor from an in-place expression editor in options could lead to a crash.
7. Fixed: The mouse controls could become unavailable with certain types of displays in Display View with build 178.

Still can consistently crash with Gizmo. After the crash, I have to relaunch and then most of time I can't reconnect the tablet to MC -- takes many many tries.

Would the report generated be useful if I pasted it in?

The field "Date Created" is overwritten with the current Date/Time when files are tagged.
This is true for all versions of MC Mac since the first one.

Happens on MacMini, MacBook and iMac on OS 10.6.8 and 10.7.5.

Playing WebRadio stations crackles and makes strange sounds for every station i hear.
The same stations work perfectly in iTunes.

Can you post a couple station links for us to try?

Sure, it is a pleasure :-).

Here are some of them, but none of my whole collection plays without permanent errors:

http://stream-1.ssatr.ch:80/rsj/mp3
http://mp3stream1.apasf.apa.at:8000
http://mp3.webradio.rockantenne.de:80


These all sound great to me listening with build 182.  Except my high school German from decades ago doesn't allow me to understand the announcers :(
Is there anything unusual with your audio settings that I should test here?

I got a "MC quit unexpedly" error when I closed MC via its
  • corner.  It was not 182, rather 181 ... but that thread is closed, and I don't see where you've addressed it in the 182 release.  See attached ...

Cannot install a plugin (FabFilter Pro-Q).... JRiver attempts to open an installer package and stops working.  Immediately looks in my Documents folder for the plugin but stops there with a spinning ball.  Is this feature working?
