Test Notes:
  • This is pre-release software and is being provided for feedback/testing and development purposes -- please backup your files to protect against data loss.
  • Installation of MediaMonkey 5 can be on top of MediaMonkey 4, or independent of MediaMonkey 4. If you run both versions, changes made in one DB will not be reflected in the other.

Post by rusty » Fri Mar 20, 2020 5:40 pm

Hi,

I just want to take a moment to wish everyone the best of health. It's been a rough week for those dealing with the loss/illness and 'social distancing' / isolation. Congrats to those of you who are able to refrain from non-essential contact--it really saves lives.

Here's a new MediaMonkey build with 10+ fixes and improvements. It includes more fixes re. View management and we'll hopefully have that aspect of MM5 completed by next week. Details appear in the changelog.

Test Notes:
  • This is pre-release software and is being provided for feedback/testing and development purposes -- please backup your files to protect against data loss.
  • Installation of MediaMonkey 5 can be on top of MediaMonkey 4, or independent of MediaMonkey 4. If you run both versions, changes made in one DB will not be reflected in the other.
  • If you have a MediaMonkey 3/4 Gold license, Gold functionality will be active until MediaMonkey 5 licenses are made available for sale.
  • Scripts / Addons from MediaMonkey 4 are not compatible.

  • Double-click the downloaded file and follow the installation instructions. It's recommended that you install it to a different directory than your existing MediaMonkey installation. For example:
    • In portable mode: /Temp/Portable Apps/MediaMonkey 5/ so as to preserve your existing MediaMonkey installation.
    • In regular mode: ...Program Files (x86)/MediaMonkey 5/...
  • The codec pack can be installed from within MediaMonkey via Tools > Extensions . Note that it is only compatible with MediaMonkey 5
