« on: June 13, 2014, 06:33:15 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter-19.0.141.deb

Purchase link

19.0.141 (6/13/2014)

1. Changed: Default volume mode is now "Internal" rather than "System".
2. Changed: Added command line switch for restoring license from an MJR file (/RestoreFromFile).
3. Changed: Tooltips that obscure underlying clickable fields removed.
4. NEW: Screensaver control enabled (turn on hdmi screen option under Audio).
5. NEW: Added command line alsacap to the debian package (in MC's shared library location).
6. Changed: Audio driver configuration changed to be more like windows/mac.
7. NEW: The ALSA driver selection can be made from the WebRemote control panel.
8. NEW: DSD Encoder working.

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)

Wheezy, Gnome 3.  Since the 138 thread is locked, I'll post here.

If I click on a MediaCenter menu which drops down, then Alt-Tab away from the MediaCenter window, the menu persists in the same location on top of whatever other windows there are.  The only way to close the menu is to switch back to MediaCenter.

Hi,

when I click on the download link for release 19.0.141, I get a XML response as follows:

Code: [Select]
<Error><Code>AccessDenied</Code><Message>Access Denied</Message><RequestId>abc</RequestId><HostId>xyz</HostId></Error>

I'm also disappointed about the lack of information about using the registration code and .mjr file unter Linux. I've bought the Linux licence already in February. Then last wednesday I installed the 19.0.138 release and because I couldn't find any option to register the .mjr file, I tried the menu option "Install Key". After entering the registration key from the purchase email, MC told me that the program is registered. When starting MC again this morning, MC told me that it's not registered again and that there are 27 days left. So I repeated the procedure, and MC told me again that it's registered again ... And now, a few hours later, MC tells me again that it's not registered ...  ?

Then I saw the 19.0.141 link and that there should be an option to load the .mjr file. And I hoped that this would solve my problems. But this file isn't downloadable ...

As a result, I now have only 8 of 10 restores left due to the misleading "Install Key" option and the missing option to install the .mjr file under Linux  ?


PLEASE provide a downloadable 19.0.141 .deb file and a short explanation how to install the .mjr file under Linux. Thanks  :)

You can download the build now.

To use the registration with a file, go to a terminal window as your user (not root or sudo) and do

mediacenter19 /RegisterFromFile yourfile.mjr

Put in you mjr filename in place of yourfile.mjr
If it has spaces either rename it or put it in quotes.

Remember mjr files are temporary. If it's older than 10 days or so you need to get a new one from the restore page.

Licensing in this way isn't necessary unless you are running on an unsupported distro.

I'm afraid the registration is still not working for me.

I tried with a new file too. As my regular user I run:

mediacenter19 /RegisterFromFile MediaCenter19Linux-250890.mjr

The mjr file exists in the current directory, I renamed it to remove the spaces as its shown on the commandline above.

MediaCenter starts without any popups, but when I go to registration info, it says 21 days left. When I restart MC without the parameter, it pops up the trial message again.

I assume you are running it from the command line as the same user that it's running in the GUI (no sudo)?
You could PM me your registration key and .mjr and I could check it.

After trying the registration (unsuccessfully) a bunch of times, I noticed that my Machine Settings.ini file had a whole bunch of BuyButton entries.   Deleting the file and restarting MC allowed the registration to stick and I haven't had a problem since.

That's interesting.
Invalid entries are supposed to get removed.
InflatableMouse, can you check your Machine Settings.ini file?

I could not find any buybutton entries in my machines.ini file. When I removed it, MC said the trial period was over when trying to register it from the command line.

Yes, same user no sudo. I'll email you.

Thanks.

Same for me. The new /RegisterFromFile didn't work, neither with an existing Machine Settings.ini nor after deleting it.

Here's what worked for me: Deinstall MC19 -> Delete ~/.jriver folder -> Reinstall MC19 -> Enter the original registration code from the purchase email into MC19 (don't know how that menu item was named because since successful registration this menu entry doesn't appear any more).

Same is true for me. It counts down to 19 days now.

I checked the conversation between my pc and your server during registration. It seems like the server stopped talking to my pc!

We've discovered an issue with the registration that causes it to be lost if the network is not in a stable state (with IP address)  when MC is started.
This will be corrected in the next build shortly.
