After much inattention to mt-daapd due to changing jobs and other
things, I'm pleased to say that I'm working on mt-daapd again. Yay.
I would be pleased if you would help test the cvs code to get it into
shape for a 0.2.1 release. If checking out from cvs is a pain (and it
is!), nightly snapshots are available here:
The primary feature of the 0.2.1 release will be background file system
scans -- periodically, the daemon will scan the mp3_dir to see if there
are new mp3 files added or deleted, and update connected iTunes clients
This is implemented in current cvs, as well as the most recent
snapshot. The config file directive that controls the background
scanning interval is called (not surprisingly) scan_interval. More
details on it can be found in contrib/mt-daapd.conf.
Other changes since 0.2.0:
* Thanks to David Berry and some of the folks in the Roku forums,
mt-daapd implements browse and query support -- this is for embedded
music devices with low memory (like the Roku SoundBridge) to browse the
music database without having to pull the whole database into memory.
Search support still needs to be implemented.
* Support for more AAC tags (comments, grouping, composer, bpm, etc)
* Support for BPM tag on .mp3 files
* Support for bitrate, bpm, and date (of the mp3 file) in smart
* Other minor bug fixes.
I would be especially pleased to hear any feedback on how the 0.2.1
