    AMP v0.9a release:
    http://www.aychamo.com/amp/AMP.zip

    - Bug fixes
    - Small bug where it wouldn't save the config file when it should
    - A few graphical things, just minor misalignments

    - New features
    - Clock
    - "Visuals" pop-up window, this lets you control music from the visual window, without breaking out back to the music list. Also, in this view, it's optional if you want the view to fade out after a few seconds (leaving you back at the visual), or to remain permanently on screen. If you choose permanent on screen, you can still click the album art to get rid of the screen
    - iTunes visuals (note: it "works", but none of the visuals I have in iTunes show anything because iTunes isn't playing the music, but perhaps someone has visuals that aren't dependent on that)
    - Option to stretch visuals, & movies to full screen (for whatever reason) [note, AMP by default puts everything 800x480; if you are running 800x600, etc, this is the option you should select. The interface wont be in your resolution, but the visuals, movie, etc will be]
    - Note:
    - The four above things are all "optional" from the new configuration menu (to access it: from the main menu, click on "Utils" [Dashboard Icon], then "Configure", then "Misc"

    - radioSHARK favorites (finally, lol)
    - Partially: There is a "music" button in the web browser now, but it doesn't load any menu yet, it's still being worked on

    -

    As always, please post any suggestions, bug reports, feedback, etc. Thank you!

    is saying I love you weird. cause i think that is the only way to describe how awsome you are. Holly crap, first acutal mac front end.

    edit: I am playing with it now. but its got issues.
    1) when you try and use the apple visualizations cant choose or edit what song you are listening to. However you can control back and forth with the keyboard.
    2) when i try and go to a different webpage in the brower, nothing happens, the little icon spins and then nothing. the Mp3car site comes up with no probs.
    3) Is there a way to have it show what song is playing while watching the pictures slide show. The show works great, but to have maybe in the corner somewhere the album art and what is playing. just in a partially transparent box?
    4) finnaly. Is there a way or a place to have the clock on the main screen. I like the way it looks so i would keep it up as my main screen unless changing song or something.

    besides that, perfect, i love the part of getting rid of individual visualizations.

    edit: your about still says version .08a I dont know if that matters to you or not.

    Hey man!

    Ok, I gotta be quick.

    1. I should have put that as a caveat. You'll have no control over music when using iTunes' visuals. I implemented it as a request, but to be 100% honest, I think it's a worthless feature. iTunes' visuals take over the screen, and there's nothing I can do. If anyone can make any nice visuals in Quarts Composer, we'll never have to worry about iTunes ever. - I wlil never use this feature.

    2. You need to preface the web addresses with http:// (theres a button on the keyboard that makes this easier) - I should make a fix in the code to automatically add it in - Thank you

    3. I may be able to do something like that. Or, a button to pop up some transparent music controls (like the visual control screen in the visualization view) - good idea, thank you. A problem with showing the info all the time is it takes up space, which interferes with the photo. I'm trying to give as much screen room as possible for the photos ------ oh, you mean the picture slide shows?? Like the Apple iPhoto style transitions? No, there really isn't a way. It uses a custom graphics view, and it's really not possible to use my components there.

    4. Hmm. I can do that. I guess keep it in the same location (upper-right corner?) No problem there

    Re: About screen - OOPS! lol! - I guess it fits in though, my versioning system is really just a big joke anyone, I guess sort-of mocking the whole development process. I suppose I should make this automatic.

    Thank you for the input - sorry this is so short, I'm in a huge rush,

    Aychamo

    Just a note, I'm posting from within AMP's browser, and I've fixed your #2. It'll be in the next version. For now, just preface the URLs with http:// (via that little button) - in the future it will be "user proof" lol

    Let me know how it works out with the new version, later today!

    I think everyone is talking about this:
    http://www.macvroom.com/node/36
    They made an applescript that automatically configures the display everytime you startup the mac mini.

    I dont remember if i already pointed out this link earlier and im too tired to look back (it's midnight right now).
    MacCar progress:
    Planning:-----> [||||||||||||||||||||] 70%
    Parts:---------> [||||||||||||||||||||] 0%
    Construction:-> [||||||||||||||||||||] 0%

    Car broken into... progress is basically zip...

    Really great stuff. Thanks a lot. My only request would be to make everything centered on the screen. I know you've said its for 800x480, but when viewed in 800x600 everything is bottom left aligned. This leaves you with blank space at the top of the screen.

    Anyway, thanks for the hard work.

    Just played with it on my laptop. I'll try to get it on my Mini tomorrow.

    When the minutes (and presumably hours) are less than 10, they aren't padded with a zero. "11:8pm" just looks funny to me Any chance you could pull the format for the Menu Bar clock from ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist using the AppleICUTimeFormatStrings key? (Set via the International pref pane).

    If you can do that, then everyone can tweak it to their own tastes (I prefer US 24 hour time with seconds myself ).

    - "Visuals" pop-up window
    Nice touch.
    I would still prefer something that just pops up over the list though (as an option?).

    Also, the rotating CD case seems to hide the track name under the time scale. I remember you said that this wasn't yours before, but I don't recall it doing that and didn't know if you tweaked it.

    Looking really good.

    Thanks,
