I cannot remember what's in this release. Unlike some other projects I don't do version control or commit messages, because this is supposed to be fun. Some bugfixes for sure. Something to do with PHP 7 being even crapper than PHP 5 was, or something along those lines. Also a lot of new fonts. Mostly new fonts. The zip file has got much bigger, so probably mostly new fonts. I like fonts. Yeah. Keep it funky.
Another small bugfix release. I'm too tired to remember what, but there were a few problems brought up by the release of Mopidy 2.0, so I hope this addresses them.
Another small bugfix release. There are a few small things that I've fixed, nothing major. Playlist editing is now supported for Mopidy, seeing as Mopidy 2.0 supports it.
0.74 is another bugfix release, most notable for the problem that was reported relating to radio stations with MPD. There are several other small bugs fixed also.
0.73 contains a few bugfixes and a couple of new features, including the oft-requested search box in the National Radio panel that I said I'd never do :) There's also an updated German translation from Frank Schraven. Thanks, Frank. :)
0.71 fixes a few bugs that inevitably cropped up immediately after releasing 0.70. Seeing as I was also working on other things there is a new collection sort option and this version should use a little less memory and load faster than the previous one.
Whatever you do, do it funky.
Mopidy support continues!
Rompr 0.70 is a major update and contains important changes. These have been prompted by recent changes to Mopidy and also my desire to make the code easier to maintain.
Mopidy is still supported, however Rompr now uses Mopidy's MPD frontend. Support for the HTTP frontend has been removed.
The way the Music Collection is built has been completely rewritten, and is actually better now. You can choose which backends you want to build your collection from and it uses far less memory - Low Memory Mode is no longer required.
Mopidy 1.1 or later is required.... read more
Due to recent changes in Mopidy's API I can no longer guarantee correct operation of Rompr with Mopidy. Your Music Collection may fail to build. Other functions should continue to work for the time being but over the course of time, Music Collection support and Playlist support will fail, certainly by the time Mopidy 2.0 is released, and probably before.
Much discussion with the Mopidy developers has failed to resolve this problem. ... read more
A few fixes following a couple of regressions following Mopidy's update to version 1.0.0
This version is also (finally) able to extract track names from radio streams with Mopidy, now that mopidy supports that.
NOTE: The PPA release of this version will be delayed - and may never happen. PPA users who really need this release might prefer to update from here from now on.
A few bugfixes, and an updated Italian translation by Luca Morisi. Thanks Luca!
A new release with a whole swathe of improvements and new features. The docs will get updated over the next few days but here's a summary
New themes, new icons, better looking interface
Updated mobile version is now faster and easier to use
Spotify info panel which for Mopidy users allows browsing of albums and artists, and tracks to be added directly into the current tracklist.
Loads of new Smart Radio options - favourite tracks, favourite artists, favourite albums, spotify reccomendations etc.
Much improved performance, especially with Mopidy
SQLite is now supported as the default Collection backend, meaning everyone can use tagging and rating without having to set up a MySQL server.
'Composer' tags can now be used to sort the Collection
The collection can be displayed by Artist or by Album
The Artists which appear at the top of the collection (previously 'Various Artists') can be configured
The prefixes to ignore when sorting (previously 'The') can be configured, which will make non-English speakers able to sort their collections the way they like
Collection updates are now performed 'in the background' - meaning you can continue adding tracks even while the update is going on
Collection updates can be automated using a cron job
The 'Now Playing' area can show Composer and Performer information as well as just 'Artist', if your tracks have those tags.
Improved Podcasts display
People using the mopidy-podcasts backends will be able to subscribe to new podcasts directly from Rompr
Much better support for some of the more recent mopidy extensions (eg Bassdrive, Internet Archive) which didn't work in rompr 0.52
Loads more keyboard shortcuts
A minor update with a couple of bugfixes.
Added an option to fade in the alarm clock (Mopidy only, sorry mpd people)
Added an option to ignore unplayable tracks when building the Music Collection (only relevant to Mopidy)
Added a German translation by Frank Schraven. Thanks Frank :)
A minor update with a new feature and a couple of bugfixes
Loads of new stuff this time around.
Lots of good new stuff in this one.
Non-english speakers have a lot to thank Vitaly Ignatov for:
1) Vitaly provided a patch that allowed RompR to use the browser's default language for getting Last.FM info. This set me off on making Wikipedia do it too.
2) Vitaly suggested I make RompR translatable, so I did.
Vitaly also contributed the patches that have finally permitted me to add custom scrollbars to replace the awful old browser default ones, and to make the playlist scroll to the current track.... read more
The next version of RompR will support translations - the interface can be translated into any language. So we're in need of people who can help out, since I only speak English and I'm not even very good at that.. :)
If you'd like to help out, please read the wiki post: https://sourceforge.net/p/rompr/wiki/Translating%20RompR/
It's been a while but RompR 0.40 is ready.
The docs will be updated in due course but until then here's a summary of the changes:
Small bugfix - the search function wasn't working in the Files list. Hopefully it should now. I don't think there are any other changes.
A Small Update
Fixed a small bug in the search
Added the ability to use albumart stored in your local album folders. Simply add the path to your local music in the new field in the preferences panel, and your music folders can be searched for images. I'll update the Wiki with a fuller explanation.
The download is up here on SF.net, Ubuntu users might have to wait some time for me to updates the PPA because I can't be bothered with Linux all that much any more :)
RompR goes mobile! Version 0.30 now has a fully-functional mobile client!
The mobile client will be selected automatically if you access rompr from a mobile phone. I've decided that tablet devices run rompr quite well in normal mode and so these should display the normal rompr.
To force the mobile version just go to /rompr/?mobile=phone
To disable the mobile version just go to /rompr/?mobile=no
All the features of rompr are present in the mobile version - this is not a slimmed down 'lite' version, but a fully functional one that has been tweaked for small screens and touch interfaces.... read more
Some updates and new features. This may well be the last release for the time being.
Some incremental changes from the previous release.
You test and you test and you test and then you find a bug the day after your release :)
In 0.20, RompR will crash if you enable 'Don't Scrobble Radio Tracks' and then play... some radio tracks :) 0.20.1 fixes this. There are no other changes.
Phew, what a lot of work.
What started as a little bug hunt turned into a host of major changes - some necessary, some just because...
This version has some major changes to the way the pages are laid out. You won't notice any difference but it is now a lot more efficient. However this comes at a price - you will require a modern browser (i.e. a recent version of Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Opera, or Safari). Internet Explorer definitely won't work now, but I don't think it ever did :)
What else is new?... read more
My pseudo-random version number system continues!
There isn't much new in this release. I've made a few minor tweaks and bugfixes and a couple of speedup improvements.
But the biggest change is that the music Collection is now cached, which massively speeds up loading the albums list and the files list.
There is a new option in the Configuration to make RompR update the Collection every time you load the page - enabling this option basically reverts RompR to the old behaviour. Additionally there are new buttons to force a Collection update and to force a complete Rescan of the entire collection.
People running mpd/apache on slow machines (eg Intel Atom/Raspberry Pi/hacked NAS devices) might find this update to their liking.
Enjoy the music :)
