Media Center 19.0.83 -- Available Here
« on: November 27, 2013, 11:29:31 am »

This is the latest release of Media Center 19 for Mac.  Please post bugs here.  Please start a new thread for anything requiring discussion.  Non-bug posts will be deleted.

[Build pulled by JimH for memory problems]

19.0.83 (11/27/2013)

1. Fixed: The display would not update after extended playback when Spectrum Analyzer was enabled in the player window. This would make the UI appear to be frozen.
2. NEW: The Apple Remote (white plastic) is now supported (play/pause, ff/rew, next/previous, volume up/down).

19.0.76 (11/18/2013)

1. NEW: Visualizations in the player bar at the top of the program are now shown during playback.
2. Changed: Copy and paste cover art was working for image data only.  Now artwork files/URLs can be copied from Finder or web browsers.

19.0.75 (11/14/2013)

1. Changed: This build includes debug symbols which will show up in crash dumps to ease debugging.  Regular builds have these stripped out.

19.0.74 (11/12/2013)

1. Fixed: A bug in the menu tracking system could cause crashes.

19.0.73 (11/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Frequent crashes due to a threading bug introduced in build 71 with the way JRTools objects were created.

19.0.72 (11/7/2013)

1. Fixed: Media Network was broken in the previous build. A crash would occur when thumbnails were sent to a remote device.

19.0.71 (11/6/2013)

1. Fixed: Alphabetic sorting of lists could be incorrect in some situations with some locales.
2. Fixed: At application startup, JRTools objects were not getting created in the correct order - possible cause of crashes.

19.0.68 (11/1/2013)

1. Changed: Auto update now launches the downloaded DMG updater.
2. Changed: Improved support for integer mode on devices that use multiple output streams.
3. Fixed: Back slash in filename caused file to not import.

19.0.67 (10/29/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback on little endian devices that used padding was not working.
2. Fixed: When caps lock was on, lists would think the shift key was pressed, making them difficult to use.

19.0.65 (10/28/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback on devices that used padding could result in incorrect playback (testing appreciated).
2. Changed: Sorting of devices in Options > Audio is more logical.

19.0.64 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback mode was not working properly with devices the used MSB padding instead of LSB padding.

19.0.63 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback mode was not working correctly with devices that used padding.

19.0.62 (10/25/2013)

1. Changed: Integer mode will work with more hardware.
2. Fixed: Media Network was not working properly.

19.0.60 (10/24/2013)

1. NEW: Added support for integer mode playback ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=84657.0 ).
2. Faster: Improved performance, with JRMark scores are about 40% higher for the database section and 5% higher for the image section.
3. NEW: Real-time 2xDSD output using DoP (configure in DSP Studio > Output Format).
4. Fixed: Dropboxes (in tagging action window for example) would sometimes lose keyboard focus so you couldn't type anything.
5. Fixed: Drop suggestion boxes were drawn without a border.
6. Faster: Core drawing engine uses SSE acceleration for flushing and flood filling (helps performance of all user interface).
7. Faster: Speed improvements to date handling that help performance in many areas of the program.
8. Fixed: Crashes on 10.9 (Mavericks) in Media Network http header handling.
9. Fixed: App signing was not being done right.  Could cause warning message at install time about unrecognized developer ID.
10. Changed: Improved how Options > Audio exposes Core Audio devices to make device selection more clear.

19.0.57 (10/17/2013)

1. Fixed: Ape files with very long paths (> 260 characters) could crash on import.
2. Fixed: Ape format files on read-only drives could not be imported or played.
3. Fixed: Right-to-left reading text (Hebrew for example) was not displayed correctly. Symbols for each word were all bunched on top of each other.
4. Changed: The processor extension requirement has been lowered to SSE2 (added in 2001 to Intel, 2003 to AMD). Previously SSSE3 was required.
5. Fixed: When converting audio to WAV format, the RIFF chunk size could be set wrong by 8 bytes.
6. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).

19.0.55 (10/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Filenames containing combining diacritic marks (German umlauts for example) were displayed incorrectly in file listings and could cause crashes.
2. Changed: Volume up / down commands from hot keys (volume keyboard buttons, remote, etc.) work in 5% increments instead of 1% increments.

19.0.54 (10/10/2013)

[Build was pulled due to not containing the latest code updates]

19.0.53 (10/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Deadlocks (beach-balls) could occur when viewing file lists with thumbnail images.
2. Fixed: 2XDSD was included in the drop-list for DSP / Output Format / Output Encoding even though it's only supported with ASIO on Windows.
3. Fixed: Genre field could be incorrect when imported from certain M4A format files with integer id3v1 genres.  In MC they would look like an '8' in parenthenses instead of "Jazz" for example.
4. Fixed: Handling of 32-bit integer input files was not working in the last few builds.
5. Fixed: Added support for MP4 files that used a custom genre atom in their tag, but stored a standard genre by putting a number in parenthesis.
6. Fixed: Double-click on the pause button while playing was not stopping.
7. Changed: Updated the Indonesian translation (Thanks elda).
8. Fixed: Fonts that used left or right overhangs could draw with the overhang portion cropped.
9. Fixed: The white-list for allowing system volume to work while bitstreaming was not working with some Resonessence Labs hardware.
10. Changed: Added the ability to use the token [User] in the playerbar to display the name of the current user.
11. Fixed: Customization to the playerbar would not always take effect right away.
12. NEW: Added 'Set levels from decibel meter' button to Room Correction to make it easier to calibrate levels.

19.0.49 (10/2/2013)

1. Fixed: Copying zone settings was causing crashes.
2. Fixed: In the JRiver folder under Application Support, an unnecessary "Generic" folder was getting created at program startup.
3. Fixed: A running instance of Media Center would prevent OSX from shutting down.
4. Fixed: Audio calibration tool was not available because the plugin 'in_audiotest' was not included with the build.
5. Fixed: Skin effects menu item was missing.
6. Fixed: Many non-applicable image/video items were still in the options dialog and some menus.

I'm sorry to say that this release eats memory REAL fast. (2Gb under 5 min.)

Jumped from the .74 release to this one.

Nope; I've got the "play file from memory instead of disk" option unchecked (in the .74 version to which I reverted)

Memory usage can spike if MC is doing something in the background (thumbnailing or analyzing files, for example), but it will return to normal.  I don't think there is a problem in this build.

This version has memory leaks. I can see the memory increasing forever in Activity Monitor until finally I get a dialog box saying I ran out of memory. I started the program less than 5 minutes ago and it already says 3.23Gb. But still growing. Forever. Please look into this.

Thanks,
Nuno

Not even 10 minutes later... 4.91Gb of used RAM. I'm going back to the previous version. Please address this issue as this version is unusable in OS X 10.8.5.

I got a pop up warning saying MC 19 has used too much application memory. This has never happened to me in the past with any other build.

Downloaded 19.0.83. After playing half a dozen tracks went to close the program....and the mac min beachballed...eventually the program closed. Hadnt experienced this with any other previous versions. 2013 Mac Mini running OSX 10.8.5. Also noted that the program wasnt as responsive to inputs such as a mouse clicks etc. Often a noticeable delay.

Hi, Agree with above.
I've been using 18 and 19 since inception.  Not since early on have I had any issues, but with .83 I have brief pauses in playback, slow response time of other programs, and sluggish performance of the computer.  This was exactly what happened after the initial release when there was an issue with memory leak.  OSX 10.7.5. 2.4 Core 2 Duo, 4GB.
Thanks,
Fred

This has been a problematic release. Sluggish performance, playback pausing and skipping, and eventually dragging down pretty much the whole computer with it. Even getting the program to quit has been difficult. I went back to the previous version for the time being; there's something in this current release that needs repairing.

Good Morning! A short email to advise about a different issue with build .83. I noticed in the OPTIONS menu that some selections are blacked out. For example I can check/uncheck memory play but tick boxes above and below are blacked out. This was not the case with the earlier build. Perhaps it is just cosmetic? Please note I have had no trouble playing tunes with build .83.

Regards, Richard

I want to add my voice to the memory leak as well. Went back to the previous version and now all is well.

Memory leak too. Sw increases memory occupation on playing. Media player don't releases memory, I think.

I have 16 Gb of memory in my Mac Mini so have not been experiencing the memory leak issue reported nor any sluggishness, I will try running it non stop for a few days to see if anything issues raise their ugly head. Also will check memory usage more rigorously...

I just posted this in another thread on memory issues with this version.  My 2010 Mac Mini has 8GB RAM and I have never experienced "doesn't have enough memory" before. I was listening for the past 90 minutes and at the same time I was updating tags. After about 60 minutes I notice the music would stutter as I entered tag information or saved tag changes. After 30 more minutes MC crashed. If I understand correctly you are recommending reverting to an earlier version until the next revision with this memory leak problem is resolved.

Good luck. I hope you figure it out soon.

Locking this now until the memory problem is fixed.

Turning off Media Network might affect it.
