7 vs 6

Unread post by zzzonedotnet » 24 Apr 2019, 13:00

snapshot of version 7 server working well for me on Win 10.

However, I don't see any differences from version 6 except for the new Madsonic avatar :D

Thanks.

Hi there,

The main differences are under the hood, many libraries have been updated to run technically with all current system environments.

Support for
  • Java 11
  • Sonos 10
  • Tomcat 9
  • Jetty 9
  • Lucene 8

You can find more details here:

Best regards

I understand.

However as an end user, I would have liked a visible or audible reward for having upgraded. The upgrade process is always problematic mentally, because I am well aware that this type of beta/snapshot-ware may be unstable and cause problems or not function well. Therefore, the "tester" should be rewarded with some new feature that makes the process "feel" worthwhile in my opinion.

I guess my reward is the new logo.

I like the idea of getting rewarded, get colorful presents or even gift packs :-)

This is my way to keep my rewards as big as possible:

I read the Changelog and count the News or Bugfixes.

If I luckily find a topic I which I proposed somewhere in the forum, I count it double :-)

Then I decide if I might upgragde or not. (running system vs. maybe not running or instabil system)

In My case:
New ID3: add custom ID-tag reading/searching
New ID3: add multitag support for genre
New ID3: add multitag support for mood
New SCAN: settings to ignore symbolic links
New SCAN: settings to ignore files/folders during scan
New SEARCH: Apache Lucene 8.0.0 implementation (better search capabilities)
New SEARCH: improved search results
New GUI: option to show multivalues (genre, moods)
New GUI: use embedded cover art
New GUI: individual sorting on tables
New SCAN: improved folder scanning
As well as
New DLNA: new experimental implementation in courtesy of Allen Petersen
New SCROLLBAR: refactor implementation
Bugfix PLAYQUEUE: fix lost snyc after rerangement
Bugfix SYSTEM: fix exception without internet connectivity
Bugfix THEME: fix browser issues
Internal upgrades are mostly ...erm... internal and won't show any fancy banner/icons/stars aka new working menu-items.

When I upgrade to betas, I expect more bugfinding and troubleshooting than a smoothy running alltimes best working piece of software.

I guess and hope, that the new logo is not all the news we will find while listening to our music with MadSonic ;-)
