MediaMonkey 3.0.0.1105 RC-2

Post by rusty » Wed Nov 14, 2007 2:24 am

Here's Release Candidate 2. It's a bit of a misnomer, since there are a couple of issues that still must be fixed, but it's really solid in regular use, despite the extensive number of changes. Note that it's still a release candidate -- it's near-ready, but the volume of changes in this build makes it advisable to take precautions and backup your data/files to protect against data loss during installation or usage.

Please keep the feedback coming, but keep in mind that our focus at this point is only on critical bugs.

MediaMonkey 3.0.3.1147 Beta 2

Post by rusty » Fri Mar 21, 2008 3:40 pm

It's been awhile, but we're happy to announce 3.0.3 Beta 2. It fixes a variety of issues that have been reported over the past month, and includes a variety of performance, usability, and functional improvements.

We only have a couple more things planned before we create an RC, so please let us know what you think. Thx.

What's new?

    i.e. 'The Beatles' -> 'Beatles, The'
    -- $Group(string,integer) - Groups the first letter of the first parameter to groups of
    letters given by the second (optional) paremeter. Works just like <Artist@1>.
    -- $Replace(string,what,by) - Replaces all occurences of 'what' by 'by' in 'string'.
    -- $If(<Year><1990,...) - $If() function now accepts also <,<=,>,>= and <> operators.
    e.g. $If(<Year><1990,80's,$If(<Year><2000,90's,2000's)) returns 80's for year 1984.
    -- $Assign(variable,value) and $Use(variable) - Variables that can be used several times
    in mask, e.g. '$Assign(V,A)$Use(V)$Use(V)' produces string 'AA'.
    -- $First(string,count,start from) - There was added parameter 'start from' (optional), which
    specifies to skip a number of items in multi-value string. E.g. $First(a;b;c,1,1) returns 'b'.
