2. Fixed: Registration issues (losing previous registration, etc).
3. Fixed: WOL Mac address were not being supplied to the access key server properly.

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)

19.0.133 (5/9/2014)

1. Changed: The font loads orders of magnitude faster.

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

19.0.129 (4/21/2014)

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).

1. Changed: More maximize/not maximized work.


19.0.124 (3/25/2014)

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)

2. Fixed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, wouldn't move on to the next track in a playlist properly.

Wheezy 64bit

Hello, just noticed that the tool tips are appearing in the audio tree (Audio->artist) for albums that have a name wider than the display.  I believe these were disabled in an earlier build?

Bob noticed this on Friday as well, and he'll look into those next week.

This installs fine, but when I start mediacenter19, I get a window with the message "Web page viewing is not yet supported on this platform"

Running Debian wheezy, xdm and fluxbox

What do I need to do?

Thanks

Finally completed setting this up yesterday using Debian wheezy, and my E-MU 0404 card...

Output from the E-MU goes to a Yamaha pre-amp and from pre-amp to KRK rokit 8 g3 monitoring speakers...

Big big big thanks to the JRiver crew for such a fantastic product...

Phase II of the project is to find a suitable iPad app to control JRiver...

JRemote is quite pricey IMO and will like to know about other existing alternatives

Any advise?

Thanks

Gizmo on Android is free and then there's Eos too, a paid app for Android.

At any rate, any of these paid apps (including jremote) is a steal IMO.

I'm based in Europe...

The app store lists JRemote at 9.99 which converts into $13.64...

I don't mind a paid app, but at $13... I would like to check first if there are other alternatives,

Thanks anyways...

Some criticism of the development of MC for Linux

Do not get me wrong - I think the development of MC for Linux is a great work.
But for a long time I observe that here in the forum all possible properties
discussed and improved (Network - HDMI - DSD - remote and other stuff)

I'm just a simple user and not a programmer. I can't judge how difficult the individual development steps are.
Surely every user has different custom and priorities.

So my wish list what should be improved in the near future:
 
- The ability to rename files after tagging and move to other directories
- The functioning of the link bar- MC should be able to call the links via the external browser.
- URL s to stream (radio)
- Various graphical problems

At present it is for me still necessary to use MC for Win parallel to make all these basic works.

Thanks for the feedback. Most of those are near the top of the rather lengthy list.

I'd like to add my thanks. Latest version is almost perfect for the way I use it (serving the media library to the lan/internet).
I cant remember the first linux version number I ever installed, in the 80's I think??? Not sure now. I've been installing the latest builds as they've appeared. 146 seems to be rock solid. Previous versions would crash intermittently (just have to restart, I'm ok with that). Icing on the cake is the auto detect now fully functional, so I can rip to my heart's content on another computer and the new tracks appear as if by magic.
Many thanks for your hard work.

I noticed single clicking anywhere in the top section of the main window client area (where there are no controls) will cause the maximized window to unmaximize. Is that intentional? Seems like pretty strange behaviour. Normally this requires double-clicking in the title area.

Screen updates from dragging dividers around are extremely slow. Moving a divider 200 pixels takes like 8 seconds or so to accomplish. This is on a machine that has a R7 260X video card with the latest proprietary AMD drivers. Any ideas on what the issue might be there?

I don't seem to be able to resize the categories in Panes. I also get no cursor change on mouse over indicating they are resizeable (also the case with dividers and the columns in the track list which I know are resizable).

Renaming issues: base path seems to have no effect. It always uses the directory the file is currently sitting in as the base path. The rules require backslashes rather than regular slashes to be parsed correctly. With the first problem it is not really usable.
