MediaMonkey -- Beta 3

Post by rusty »

Beta 3 is another big step forward in terms of stabilization. In addition, all strings should be frozen at this point, so unless there are any major gaffs, localization will be able to proceed shortly. Please give us your feedback.

Before you rush into downloading it, remember that it's still a Beta 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 regularly test pre-release software. If you plan on testing it, take precautions to backup your data to protect against data loss during installation or usage.

Please let us know how it works for you.

MediaMonkey 2.5 Beta 3:

If you are experiencing a problem which a debug log would help resolve, you can subsequently install a debug build from: ... _5_921.exe

Double-click the downloaded file and follow the installation instructions. You can install:
a) To your MediaMonkey directory, replacing the current version of MediaMonkey.
b) To a new directory (e.g. /Program Files/MediaMonkey_alpha), preserving your existing MediaMonkey installation so that you can use one version or the other.
