19.0.82 (11/26/2013)

1. NEW: Basic copy/paste support using cut buffers (the Primary method).
2. Fixed: DLNA functions which had been causing crashes (fixed across all platforms).

19.0.81-1 (11/23/2013)

1. Fixed: (again) the ALT-GR key

19.0.81 (11/22/2013)

1. Fixed: Only one thread was being used in drawing.
2. Fixed: Standard View Skins (only Noire was working).

1. Fixed: More tweaking of the ALT-GR international keyboards.

19.0.74 (11/12/2013)

1. Fixed: International keyboards, ALT-GR no longer generates an unexpected character.
2. Changed: More .deb file tweaking to work with gui installers.

19.0.73-1 (11/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Menus were in the background in some windows managers.
2. Changed: .deb to work around xfonts and platform architecture dependencies. xfonts-75dpi and xfonts-100dpi still need to be installed but aren't included in the dependencies list.

19.0.73 (11/10/2013)

1. Fixed: When first showing a window, a white box could appear at the wrong position and then move to the correct position.
2. Fixed: Tooltips (and other similar windows) could incorrectly show a taskbar button in some cases.
3. Fixed: Showing a tooltip could shift the focus away from the main program.

19.0.72 (11/7/2013)

1. Faster: Unlocked SSE acceleration in image / drawing engine providing faster performance, and better looking rendering.
2. Changed: More dependency tweaking for MultiArch.
3. Changed: Program has an icon now.

2. Changed: More precise dependencies for package installation.

19.0.70 (11/4/2013)

19.0.62 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Windows title. Shows when minimized.
2. Changed: Program binary name is now mediacenter19 to allow side-by-side versions to run properly.
3. Changed: Updated debian build package to be more to spec. To replace the current version first remove the existing version (will not affect library or settings). Do this by: sudo dpkg -r mediacenter. Then install the new build. For non-debian systems, remove /usr/bin/mediacenter.

19.0.61 (10/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Pause now works with ALSA playback.
2. Fixed: Dragging the main window to position it was not working nicely.
3. Fixed: Menu tracking and keyboard navigation was not working properly.
4. NEW: Added desktop files and icon.

19.0.60 (10/22/2013)

1. Changed: Better ALSA device enumeration, should help to coexist with pulseaudio.

1. NEW: Added support for 24-bit ALSA devices.
2. Fixed: When playback failed to start, it could lead to a crash.
3. Fixed: Mouse move tracking was not working, causing many UI issues.
4. Fixed: Typing in an edit control that showed suggestions could segfault.

2. NEW: Compiled without SSE support. Need Feedback.

19.0.52 (10/4/2013)

1: NEW: Fallback to S16_LE sound if the ALSA driver doesn't support S32_LE.

Seems to work as expected with context menu (copy/paste) as well as selection.  Nice.

build 82 is the most unstable build I've played with so far.

Playing music is not an issue, but frequently it will just close while I'm going over options, sometimes 2 or 3 times in a row.

It happens most often opening device settings under audio device.

Didn't you also change your OS?

When hovering over track details in bottom pane, sometimes it will show a tooltip with magnification of tag being hovered over. This disables double clicking to have track play.

It seems to be the Media Network. So much for better stability!
I turned off Media Network and it's been running for 2 days. With it on, if it worked for an hour I was lucky. I suggest trying it with Media Network off or regressing to the previous build.

I'm sorry I probably wasn't clear. The log I sent was in relation to this message. That was during playback.

The crashes I talk about here are specifically when going through the Options dialog and specifically opening the device options. It crashes regularly even when nothing is playing.

For a few hours yes, I reverted back to stable. Bob wasn't the only one with convincing arguments. When I told my collegue about my brave adventures into the unknown he facepalmed.

Resizing or moving windows around is still scarey compared to other applications. The windows flicker, the background turns white and it takes time to repaint it (not like all other progs.)

Stability or crashes: I've running the playback at two zones and have the server running and no crashes during playback. I wasn't able to crash it by walking thru the submenus, however most of those menus don't have any action behind.

A workaround is to right click the taskbar button for MC, and choose move or resize.

I had that trouble with the audio device pulldown too. Did a re-build and it seems stable (so far) on my machine.

Thanks.

New crash I'm afraid. I wanted to add a new view but instead clicked customize view. I cancelled it and MC crashed. I've attached a log.
