http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter-19.0.138.deb

Purchase link

19.0.138 (6/6/14)

1. Fixed: Asynchronous crashing triggered by Media Network being enabled.
2. Fixed: Ratings.
3. Fixed: Bug in eventing.
4. NEW: Licensing is now enabled. The trial period starts.

19.0.135 (5/9/2014)

1. Fixed: The watch folders function.
2. Fixed: A memory leak from above.

19.0.134 (5/15/2014)

1. New: The font dialog is enabled (Options->Tree and View->Select Font). You can choose from the default Lucida, GNU Unifont and a user defined font string. The User Defined font string has to be acceptable to XLoadQueryFont. If the font isn't found, MC will fall back to Lucida and then Mutt-Clearlyu. The font height can also be trimmed manually. Height in pixels of trim.

19.0.133-2 (5/12/2014)

1. Change: Reverted from requirement for dynamic ssl and crypto libs added inadvertently in 19.0.133

19.0.133 (5/9/2014)

1. Changed: The font loads orders of magnitude faster.
2. Fixed. The maximum size calculated for the font characters were not being calculated properly at load time resulting in imprecise placement of elements in the MC window.

19.0.129-3 (4/22/2014)

1. Changed: libcurl system shared lib dependencies reduced.
2. Fixed: Internet reader timeout.

19.0.129 (4/21/2014)

1. Changed: libcurl integrated into the JRReader. Greatly reduces dependencies and uses a newer version of libcurl. Needs testing to see if anything is missing and to check compatibility with distro's (unsupported) other than debian wheezy.
2. Changed: xz compression on the .deb greatly reduces download size.

19.0.128 (4/15/2014)

1. NEW: System volume control and mute control if supported by the device (controls the PCM output). The mixer is discovered during audio device config (reselect your audio device to get it).

19.0.124-5 (3/27/2014)

1. Changed: More maximize/not maximized work.


19.0.124 (3/25/2014)

1. Fixed: Use 64 bit stat functions. Fixes problems using mounted windows (and CIFS NAS) filesystems. Probably also fixes other random file problems.
2. Fixed: Moving the main window works properly now.
3. Changed: Method of screen position saving restoring (again). Needs testing.
4. Fixed: Resizing works (as long as nothing is playing).
5. Fixed: Restores maximized/not maximized state upon start.

19.0.122 (3/14/2014)

1. Fixed: Remembers size and position on re-open. Needs testing on different platforms / window managers.
2. Changed: The method used to allow moving/resizing. Needs testing on different platforms / window managers.

19.0.121 (3/11/2014)

1. Fixed: Memory leak introduced in 19.0.119
2. NEW: WMA playback support.
3. Fixed: HTTP authorization tokens weren't being done properly, so that only one server authorization was stored at a time.
4. Changed: Timeout advanced to July 10th 2014.
5. Fixed: Internet reader, HTTP redirects were not handled properly.
6. NEW: Use backing store for windows if the server supports it (UI speed increase).
7. NEW: Mouse cursor changes (on click) for main window move/resize. Intend this to work on hover in the future.
8. Changed: More tweaking of the tooltip and transient window hints (need feedback).

19.0.119 (2/28/2014)

1. Fixed: Movement and resizing of MediaCenter works properly now.
2. Fixed: HTTP authentication was broken in build 19.0.118.

19.0.118 (2/21/2014)

1. Fixed: The linux network reader fixed to handle custom methods (needed for DLNA events).
2. Fixed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, wouldn't move on to the next track in a playlist properly.
3. Fixed: Tooltip windows to work better with more window managers. Still not transparent however.

19.0.117 (2/14/2014)

1. Fixed: Enabled filesystem statistics gathering function.
2. Fixed: Allow : in filename (was filtered out by windows code).
3. Fixed: Remove special treatment of UNC style paths (windows code).
4. Fixed: Remove special treatment of . in pathnames, i.e. foo./bar (windows code).
5. Fixed: The fixing of the documents path causes the automatic database backup to occur. (~/Documents/JRiver ....)

19.0.116 (2/10/2014)

1. Fixed: Prevent tooltips and transparent windows from stealing input focus. Fixes upper right corner search box.

19.0.115 (2/5/2014)

1. Changed: Completely reworked the linux ALSA audio output device control to be more efficient and reduce latency.
2: NEW: Allow advanced user control of the latency.

19.0.112 (1/30/2014)

1. Fixed: Stability improvements.
2. Changed: Moved timeout to April 9th 2014

19.0.109 (1/23/2014)

2. Changed: More dependencies tuning.

19.0.102 (1/3/2014)

1. Changed: Bumped timeout to February 9th 2014
2. Changed: Package no longer depends on the various linux audio encoders to install, they are recommended but not required leaving it up to the user to install. These are Lame, Vorbis-tools, Musepack-tools. They can be 32 or 64 bit.

Trying to register my license using the permanent code and getting an error "There was a problem communicating with the license server."

Yay for ratings!

No firewall issues.  MC18 for Windows works fine in a VM on this same system as does everything else.
Media Server also seems to work fine.   It's just the registration.

Just tried it here and it worked fine.
Check to make sure you don't have a space at the beginning or the end?
If it still doesn't work, PM me your details and I'll try to reproduce it with your code.

Thanks..

On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit the registration went smoothly. But what do I have to do exactly with the mjr file sent by email?

The mjr file can be used to register MC if the automated process failed, or to register other installs on other systems in your house.
If everything worked out automatically, you can disregard it.

I have the same problem as RemyJ, "failed to communicate with license server", when I enter my reg code.

I also have my original .mjr file (useless now?).

If I want to use the mjr file, it doesn't seem to work opening it with Media Center application. Do I need to open it with another executable?

It did pop up the license box, but it didn't use the registration file.

The .mjr is only good for 10 days after it's generated.
You can always get a new .mjr using your registration code from our online license restore page.
I would think you could install it from a command line like this:
mediacenter19 yourlicense.mjr (but I just tested and that doesn't seem functional)

I'm guessing that everyone having trouble with the is NOT using debian. Can we confirm this?

I'm on Arch, so yes, not using Debian.

My mjr file is new.

A wild guess is that MC can't do secure ssl on non-debian platforms because it's looking for the certs, etc in the debian places.
You could try playing with this via symlinks.
The debian stuff is mainly in /etc/ssl
/etc/ssl/certs
/etc/ssl/private

The command line install of the mjr will get implemented.

As far as I can tell my certs are in /etc/ssl/certs too. whole bunch of symlinks in there to /usr/share/ca-certificates/.... .

/etc/ssl/private exists but its empty (which I think its to be expected).

For me it was the SSL certs not being in the right place.

For debian, /etc/ssl/certs contains individual certs in pem format with links to them with the subject hash as the name.  

Arch, Mint and Suse seem to have the same layout but Fedora (of course) has a different layout.  Once I got the certs in place, I was able to register.

Another thing to watch is for leading and trailing spaces or other characters when one puts the code into the registration box.
I did that once and got an error.

Yeah, that did it here on openSUSE.

I set up a link in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt => /var/lib/ca-certificates/ca-bundle.pem

Successful install on Debian Jessie (Alpha 1 Installer)

License key was accepted.

However, I was not able to copy paste into the license window.  It registered the Ctrl-V as 'v'.

+1 YAY! for ratings!!!

Probably a dumb question, but I did license this release.

My question: once licensed, will I need to re-license for newer releases of MC19?

Thanks,

v138 Saving tag changes on ratings

I rated a track while it was playing earier today.  The message displayed in the bottom of the screen saying "Saving tag changes (1 remaining)". 

I just noticed an hour later and 20 songs later that the message remains.  I have now stopped playback and the message remains.

Looking in the playlist, the rating I assigned is showing properly, however, when I open the MP3 file in Rhythmbox, the rating is not set.

So, it appears to me that MediaCenter is not updating the MP3.

Is the file writeable by your user?
Do you have the options set so that the changes are written back to the file tags?

Re: tag changes

It was a file permission issue.  After I changed file permissions all is well.  Perhaps an error message would be helpful.

Thanks!

Install 19.0.138 first.  Then restore your license.

v138 Debian Wheezy, Gnome 3

I'm sure this is on the to-do list, but the tool tips pop-ups are really getting me down.

The tip pops up over the album title I'm trying to select and preventing me from selecting it unless I carefully click on the icon.

I see that this only occurs on titles that are wider than cannot be fully displayed due to the column width.  Is there some way to control this behavior?

No, however in the next build (later today) they will be removed completely.
