Security warning

If you have installed Muse.Net PHP SDK it is recommended that you remove the view_source.php file. It's a stale file left over from development which may compromise your machine to a certain extent by allowing users to display any globally readable file on your system.

v1.1.0 tarball is posted


Version 1.1 of the SDK has a couple of new features (playlists and SmartNames) as well as numerous bug fixes.

Upgrading to this version is recommended for anyone who's currently hacking musephpsdk. Anyone new to the SDK should use this version as well.

1. Playlists have been enabled in Muse.Net SDK. You can add any combination of artists/albums/tracks to create a playlist. Multiple playlists can be saved server-side.
2. SmartNames - normalizes the titles you may have inherited from CDDB ("The Specials" => "Specials, The" for example). This option is ON by default, but may be toggled through the 'Options' link in the site.... read more
