Purchase link

19.0.152 (7/15/2014)

1. Fixed: Detection of mountpoints under /media and /mnt, treated as "drives"
2. NEW: Implemented the functions which allow "Rename, move and copy files" to work.
3. NEW: For deleting files from the library, moving to the recycle (Trash) bin implemented. Since this is desktop dependent you'll need to symlink ~/Trash to your desktop trash directory.

19.0.148 (7/3/2014)

1. Fixed: Multichannel mapping.

19.0.146 (6/26/2014)

1. Fixed: Watched folders now see subfolders properly.

19.0.144 (6/24/2014)

1. NEW: Implemented DSD over DoP. Tested with Mytek Stereo192 DSD DAC.
2. NEW: Added S24LE audio format.
3. Fixed: Registration issues (losing previous registration, etc).
4. Fixed: Socket handle leak.

19.0.143 (6/19/2014)

1. NEW: Added DPMS control to the HDMI screen option under audio.
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)

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.

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.

Nice! Quick questions though, how can I get this expression used on Windows working on Linux? And Mac too for that matter...

Code: [Select]
[Album Artist]\regex([Album], /#^(\.*)(.*?)(\.*)$#/, -1)replace([R1],.,_)[R2]replace([R3],.,_)
I've adapted the expression to change the backslashes to a forward slashes but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Also, is supporting hidden folders (on Linux, Mac, Windows, etc.) on the to-do list? That way I can use the [Album] field instead of the expression to workaround the hidden folders 'issue'.

Not sure why the regex wouldn't work, it is using boost, same as the windows version.
Also now that the "drive/mountpoint detection" is working I wouldn't expect that to cause any more problems with regular paths.

As for hidden folders, like .foo, I thought those were already working. It's been a concern though with the Apple network filesystems on linux where you have the resource fork as .AppleDouble/blah/blah/file.mp3
for example which isn't an mp3 file but a resource fork for the mp3 file on a Mac filesystem.

3. NEW: For deleting files from the library, moving to the recycle (Trash) bin implemented. Since this is desktop dependent you'll need to symlink ~/Trash to your desktop trash directory.

It would probably be easier on users if you followed the FreeDesktop.org specs on this, which pretty much any desktop environment that would be running mediacenter19 (GNOME, KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE) is going to implement.

http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/trash-spec/
http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/basedir-spec/

Trash should be in $XDG_DATA_HOME/Trash

Unless $XDG_DATA_HOME is being overridden, it should be ~/.local/share. The trash-spec defines some fallback behavior.

Sounds good to me.
On my system (xfce) $XDG_DATA_HOME is NOT set but the trash is in
~/.local/share/Trash

Super and many many thanks - "Rename, move and copy files" works well. The day seems not far where I can archive the virtual machine with Windows and MC 19.

1. Fixed: Detection of mountpoints under /media and /mnt, treated as "drives"

So, I mounted my ipod under both /media and /mnt but I don't see it anywhere in MC.  Exactly where should I see it?

The changes to recognize "drives" is for internal logic (like rename, move and copy).
The Portable Drive code isn't ready in linux yet.

I think that the Trash is not working correctly.
Trash in archlinux is /home/user/.local/share/Trash/ but files are saved in /home/user/.local/share/Trash/files

If I create a symbolic link with
ln -s /home/user/.local/share/Trash/files Trash
the deleted files in Mediacenter19 will go to /home/user/.local/share/Trash/ instead of /home/user/.local/share/Trash/files

The same is happening (but this is obvious) if I make a symbolic link with
ln -s /home/user/.local/share/Trash/ Trash

The same is happening (but this is obvious) if I make a symbolic link with

That's odd, I just tried that and it worked fine.
Code: [Select]
bob@exp:~$ ln -s .local/share/Trash/files Trash

bob@exp:~$ ls -l Trash
lrwxrwxrwx 1 bob bob 24 Jul 22 10:10 Trash -> .local/share/Trash/files

[sent a tune to trash in MC]

bob@exp:~/.local/share/Trash$ ls -l
total 12
drwx------ 2 bob bob 4096 Nov 11  2013 expunged
drwx------ 2 bob bob 4096 Jul 22 10:10 files
drwx------ 2 bob bob 4096 Nov 11  2013 info

bob@exp:~/.local/share/Trash$ ls -l files
total 23616
-rwxr-xr-x 1 bob bob 24182355 Dec 10  2013 Blackhawk - Who Am I Now (6).wv

Still, we'll try to get the desktop spec supported asap and fallback to the home Trash dir if there isn't a desktop trash dir.

Is there a way to change the path for storing the cover images? On options-> file location> Cover it is not possible to change the path.

It's waiting on the linkup to the file browser (which is used everywhere in that dialog).
If you need to change it now, you could edit the User Settings.ini file (while MC is not running).
Be careful if you mess around with the settings files directly since there is obviously no error checking that way.
