Dear Madsonic Community :!:


Today we officially start our new development phase for the upcoming Madsonic Server/Client/Node version 7.0. :D

Currently in progress:

GENERALL
  • new Madsonic logo re-branding
  • transfer Madsonic backend to a faster infrastructure
SERVER
  • upgrade EHCache 3.6.x (faster Cache)
  • upgrade HSQLDB 2.5 (improved compatibility)
  • upgrade Jetty 9.14.x (improved Webserver)
  • upgrade Lucene 7.6.x (improved Search)
  • upgrade FFMPEG 4.1.x (improved transcoding)
  • upgrade Java 8.x/11.x (enhanced compatibility)
  • upgrade Sonos 10.x (enhanced compatibility)
  • upgrade jaudiotagger 2.6 (improved tagging support)
  • improved search functions (improved)
  • new search suggestions (improved)
  • sortable media column
REST
  • add new REST upload API
  • add more REST chart API
BOOTER
  • upgrade Jetty 9.14 (enhanced compatibility)
  • upgrade to exe4j 6.0.1 (enhanced compatibility)
INSTALLER
  • upgrade to Java 1.8.201 (enhanced compatibility)

NODE

  • upgrade FFMPEG 4.1 (improved transcoding)
  • upgrade to exe4j 6.0.1 (enhanced compatibility)
... and many more improvements.

At the moment there are still problems with the upgrade of the existing database schemas,
but as soon as a stable testable version is available, it will be deployed to the community.

Stay tuned,
best regards,
The Madsonic Team :)

i have a question, in the Server 6.3.9760 released in 2017 changelog there is an image showing a charts feature
http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/img/build/9700/4.png
and "addtoptrack"

i am running the latest version (2018) of the server available, and i don't any of the mentioned features
neither its mentioned anywhere is the api

so is it hidden or still not official or has to be activated or what ?

indeed this is missing :roll:

you can do this with the REST2 API call:

Code: Select all

http://localhost/rest2/getTopTrackSongs.view?v=2.2.0&u=admin&p=admin&c=android&artist=Abba&size=10
with the upcoming REST3 this API call is deprecated and will be replaced

Code: Select all

http://localhost/rest3/getSongListID3.view?v=3.0.0&u=admin&p=admin&c=android&type=topTrack&artist=Abba&count=10

¿Why don't put download links with a "this will delete all your previous data", or a "pre-indev0.0.0.0.1-not_even_alpha-version"? :D

Hello I'm not very happy with this organization, I can not listen or even my friends my music this for 2 or 3 days. it would have been nice to warn everyone on their mail to say that a cut would be done, on the other hand when will it walk again? if it lasts too long and I have no news, I think back to subsonic.

I've been a Madsonic user for too many years to remember -- like many users here I am super happy with it and many thanks! I use it at home, on Android, and in the car. Keep up the good work!
Looking forward to v7!

I have used Madsonic for almost two years, and although Madsonic is not perfect (search function), it's the best there is for scanning speed, usability, sharing, cross platform app support.

I have tried Subsonic, Plex, and others.

Thanks.

What's is the reason behind to remove download section as well as withdraw app from the store. This is really annoying! For the past two months we cannot download anything we paid for!

The lack of update, download, and nuking of the forums makes it pretty clear... the app is dead. :(

What i absoluteley do not understand is a countdown for relaunch and then: NOTHING.

It might be not dead but what i see here is a huge lack of social competence :!:
No announce, no answer: only pointing to the newsletter is not good!!!
(this was before the same, you rarely get an answer here)
No communication overall.
Madsonic ist active, but he does not talk to us.
I don't use FB nor have an account, but what i could see was last update in 2017 or so....
I don't observe this...FB: dislike!
Old Board erased and nothing new so far since month....

Subsonic also looks abandoned since 2 or 3 Years, so very bad times for streamers have been evolved.
There are other solutions out there but unsatisfiying.
So What now :?:
Waiting so long time is the worst thing ever :x :evil:

Agreed. I paid for premium just before this happened. By the time I went to download the included free app it was gone from the store. I was supposed to be entitled to 2 free apps with my subscription and I have none! Email to support has also been ignored.

I really like Madsonic but this is so disappointing. @madsonic please give us an update and access to what we have paid for.

Title: I wan't my money back!

Dear Madsonic Admin,

I'm actualy paying for an Application that I can't use. I had to reinstall my Server and can't download any sources for month...
I kindly ask you to pay my money back. If I don't get an answer until next Thursday, 25th April, I have to call a Lawyer.
I'm really sorry for that, but at the Moment I pay for big amount of nothing. No Software, No Sources, No Communication, No Information! That is unaceptable!

Account Information:
Payed via xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Greetings
KaeTuuN
I feel really sorry for that, but there seems no other way. :cry:

I agree, it is really a shame, since it is a good product. I was optimistic for further enhancements, since Airsonic and Plex just does not cut it for me.

Let us see if something really is in development.

If you’re into attempting a deploy using Dockers, then those can still be pulled from dockerhub (not been updated in 2 years however and still on 6.2.9040)

KaeTuuN, I still have "20180107_madsonic-6.3.9840-standalone" lying around, in case that is the right version for you.

I got an answer and since today you can at least download 6.2.9082.
Bad thing is, that there is no DEB Package or Docker Container.

Hi Madsonic Team,

Any chance of an updated Newsletter so we can see how things are going?

Is there any more progress since the last snapshot a couple of months ago - 7.0.10390?

Appreciate all your hard work so far, hoping you have some more good news for us all soon :D

Cheers

Kev
