JRiver Media Center 20.0.57 for Debian
« on: January 16, 2015, 12:09:42 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.57.deb

20.0.57 (1/16/2015)

1. Fixed: DSP Studio presets could not be saved/loaded/deleted.
2. Changed: Internal coding changes to satisfy GCC. Ideally this will do away with some difficult to reproduce bugs.
3. Changed: Desktop file. On Unity systems this will make all of MC's windows to show up at the same Icon in the bar.

20.0.54 (1/8/2015)

1. Changed: Newly created windows should always be in the foreground now.
2. Changes from the mainstream. Note that if you are using client side volume leveling over DLNA and are using MC on multiple platforms, all builds need to be >=20.0.52 for this to continue to work.

20.0.50 (12/19/2014)

1. Fixed: Mouse pointer changes on hover over actions work now (like resize, change split, etc).

20.0.49 (12/16/2014)

1. Changed: Upgraded to cURL library 7.39
2. Fixed: Numeric keypad characters that were being ignored.
3. Fixed: GUI, disabling input in background windows.
4. Changed: GUI, greatly increased speed in operations inside of MC's windows. Fixes playlist lists, reduces CPU usage.
5. Fixed: Convert format when changing the destination path.

20.0.46 (12/05/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

20.0.43 (11/25/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

1. Fixed: Clearing "Now playing" from a remote will not pop up a confirmation box now.

20.0.42 (11/21/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

1. Fixed: DLNA: MC as renderer, when receiving a SetNextAVtransportURI, MC was allowing the playlist to grow beyond 2 items which is incorrect. This caused playlist sync issues.
2. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller, fix bug in event send when changing playlist position 1.
3. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller timing issue, make sure the first track is playing (for at least 5 seconds) before doing the SetNextAVTransportURI function.
4. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller, when playlist position current +1 changes send a new SetNextAVTransportURI to devices that support it.
5. Fixed: The change from 20.0.31 (Back out library server hiding when the library is empty introduced in 19.0.71) missed the library server visibility (it was showing the DLNA servers).

20.0.33 (11/10/2014)

1. NEW: Support for thumbnail grabbing from video files.
2. Changed: Matrix height correction when using gnu unifont (it's got a bug in it's size specification).
3. Changed: For SSL network operations, use TLSv1 instead of SSLv3.
4. NEW: Support for Shorten and Opus audio playback using the new JR playback engine (using FFmpeg).

20.0.31-1 (11/1/2014)

1. There was something off about that last upload build (version number was wrong for one). Replaced with 20.0.31-1

20.0.31 (10/31/2014)

1. Happy Halloween  ;) Just changes from the main branch.

20.0.27 (10/24/2014)

1. Fixed: Filesystem character problems in Rename, Move and Copy files.
2. Changed: Added hinting to window creation to try to get the window manager to move and resize windows in larger increments.
3. Fixed: CPU usage, especially during the drawing of the Spectrum Analyzer during playback, bug introduced in 20.0.22

20.0.25 (10/16/2014)

1. Changed: More UI changes. Extra desktop hinting on window, title bar and icon creation. Suspend desktop hinting when moving or resizing the root window. Attempt to fix initial window placement issue. Needs testing.

20.0.23 (10/13/2014)

1. Changed: More UI changes. Needs testing.

20.0.22 (10/9/2014)

1. Fixed: Video Playback crashed on stop when playing from a library server.
2. NEW: If using the system volume control and there is no mixer for the PCM device, we'll fall back to using the Master mixer for the device.
3. Changed: UI fixes. Startup position and position of popup windows should be stable now. This includes the controls in fullscreen video mode.

20.0.20 (10/2/2014)

1. Fixed: https protocol broken in 20.0.18
2. Changed: Switched to gnutls from openssl for https support because of a bug in the openssl static libs that prevented some websites certificates from being verified (i.e. twitter)

20.0.18 (9/26/2014)

1. Fixed: JRWorker segfaulting occasionally prevented some file types from being recognized.
2. Fixed: MediaCenter also occasionally segfaulted on exit.

20.0.17 (9/19/2014)

1. NEW: Implemented the file "locate" function.
2. Fixed: Menu items that open a URL in a browser.
3. Fixed: Disabled menu items unsupported on linux.
4. Fixed: Default for managing links changed to external browser.
5. Changed: possibly more ability to play Internet streams. Needs testing.

20.0.16 (9/16/2014)

1. Fixed: Series and Season cover art downloaded to the wrong folders.
2. NEW: Video playback supports playing from a library server.
3. Fixed: Last.fm scrobbling.

20.0.15 (9/12/2014)

1. Fixed: Fullscreen video playback is functional.
2. Changed: The video renderer uses VSYNC if available in the graphics driver.

20.0.13 (9/8/2014)

1. Fixed: Corrected the latency calculation for the ALSA output.
2. NEW: Video support.

The latest build (with spaces instead of hyphens that I used to test) works perfectly with Ubuntu/Unity. It should also address any related issues on any GNOME 3 system too, e.g. MC being called Unknown instead of its name. Thanks and good work as always.

Confirmed that the desktop file change fixed the "unknown" issue on gnome 3.14, as well as some other related issues (opening files from a file manager using media center would always spawn a new instance, even if MC was already running, because gnome could never "find" a running copy of MC, now Gnome just uses the running copy).

No smooth dragging of jriver window. Also the mouse arrow is changing shape accessing the menu.

Hi,
I'm trying to run the server in a stand alone mode. Is it possible? I can't figure it out.

When the main window in MC is being moved, window redrawing is suppressed. Somehow your desktop is preventing this.
Are you in the first virtual window or one of the others? For some reason this seems to make a difference.
Also not that you can use the system move (ALT + right mouse click) to drag the window. This seems to work better on unity.

The mouse now changes shape on borders, the title bar and separators. I'm not able to get it to change on the menu items.

Thanks
MC still needs an xserver even in this configuration.
If you aren't running from a desktop you'll need to install a dummy xserver.

Sorting by number of plays ascending in a "smart playlist" does not place items with no plays first.

Dragging and resizing still doesn't work correctly for me. I tested on XFCE, with and without Compton (compositor) and on KDE 5.

Would you mind trying the resizing by using the non-movement borders (right, bottom and lower right bottom).
Note please if there is screen redrawing going on inside of the MC window while you resize or move.

On my XFCE Debian Wheezy i386 stock system it works very smoothly.

fwiw, on Plasma5 openSUSE/TW, the bottom and right and corner seem to work as expected, but yes, moving the window around it literally goes loopy, meaning as I move the mouse to the left, the window does some kind of circle while I move it.  Additionally, the sizing from the left border seems to get stuck and I have click a bunch of times to get the window sizing to stop.

Take my results for what they are, however.  I'm on Factory (devel) Plasma5 and we just got the 5.2 beta on top of the 5.6KF5 and there are other things non-MC-related that don't quite jive.  Plasma5.2 is shaping up to be a solid release, so when it's final in another month or so, we should have more consistent results.
