MediaMonkey 3.0.x Testing

Postby rusty » Fri Feb 16, 2007 1:50 am

We're begining a new round of testing for MediaMonkey 3.0. This is a major release that adds a fair bit of new functionality (only some of which is complete at this stage).

The most recent 3.0 build will always be in the most recent post in this thread. To be notified of future builds, just subscribe to the thread.

Before you rush into downloading it, remember that it's an Alpha build and contains a variety of changes that have not been thoroughly tested. The software is being provided for feedback and testing purposes by advanced users who are comfortable with pre-release software. If you plan on testing it, take precautions to backup your data to protect against data loss during installation or usage.

In terms of feedback, at this stage we're most interested in major issues related to the database, tagging, playback, vista support, etc. (some of the new features are still fairly raw, and we have more work planned on improving them). Let us know what you think!

[IMPORTANT: THIS BUILD IS OUT OF DATE. The most recent build is in the last post in this thread]

Installation
Double-click the downloaded file and follow the installation instructions:
-When prompted for an install directory, choose a new directory such as /Program Files/MediaMonkey3/ so as to preserve your existing MediaMonkey installation.
-When prompted for path to shorcuts, choose something like MediaMonkey3 so that you'll have shortcuts to both versions of MediaMonkey in your Start folder.

Enjoy!

MediaMonkey 3.0 Alpha 5 (3.0.0.1045)

Postby rusty » Mon Jun 18, 2007 4:08 pm

I think you'll enjoy this new build. Thanks to Morten, who pushed and prodded for new skinning features and spent countless hours creating a new skin, MM is now much easier on the eyes! Aside from the looks department, there's a lot in this build under the hood that improves database performance and adds brand new filtering functionality to segregate collections within a library. Also, most known stability issues have been resolved.

Before you rush into downloading it, remember that it's an Alpha build and contains a variety of changes that have not been thoroughly tested. The software is being provided for feedback and testing purposes by advanced users who are comfortable with pre-release software. Take precautions and backup your data/files to protect against data loss during installation or usage.

Please keep the feedback coming! There's a lot of it so we're not able to respond to all of it, but we are listening.

What's new?
    3088 Added Glided skin as default. Special thanks to Morten!
    2957 Added Casino Orange skin.
    3042 Added various new skin objects to support Glided skin

At long last...RC-1. Fixes upon fixes upon fixes, and MM is now just about ready for regular usage. 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.
