    Speaking of future versions, today's a good day to release one.

    New since the previous version:
    Better Long-Hold handling.
    Delete Files through the Playlist window.
    Very basic support for RSS feeds.
    Completely changed how the program manages the current playlist and WMP. Much more efficient.
    Added an additional skin, with captions under the buttons. Just like the original, this one supports multiple monitors.
    Added some support for Flash objects (including SetVariable and FScommand) , but have not tested yet.
    Filename cleansing is back (removes underscores, repeated information from filenames)
    Reduced CPU usage by separating some timers.
    Added .FLAC to the default settings for Audio Extensions.
    Changed how the program manages the Grayed versions of images.
    Removed some skin commands. Added some as well. And made some commands more generic.

    Slowed down the text-to-speech.
    Smarter multi-screen support.

    New version.

    New since previous version:
    Fixed DrivingStats not updating via GPS speed -- It was only using OBD.
    Clean up some BlueTooth code.
    Added "hue-control" through the skin. So now, the default skin is provided with different color-schemes.
    Fixed Logging function not handling variable-paths (like %appPath%) correctly.
    Fixed the volume setting not restoring properly when the program was restarted.
    Tweaked the NavBar on the main screen, for larger track title text.

    Voice-Commands almost ready.

    Error Question

    Clockwork,

    I just started using your DriveLine frontend and it is really nice. Everything in xml is really awesome and makes customization easy, thanks for sharing it.

    I just added some mp3 to the playlist folder and tested out the audio. It worked great when I started used it, but when I shut it down and restarted driveline it tried to load and then gave an error and had to shutdown. I then cleared the xml with the saved playlist and it opened normally.

    Have you seen this? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Disregard the Error Question.

    I had too many songs in the playlist I guess. I cut it down to 10 and it worked fine.

    Thanks again.

    I'm glad that you got it working. However, the playlist size should be almost limitless (like 2 billion items max). I've put 10,000 items into the list before without issue. My guess is that one particular file or path caused an error. If you can reproduce it, let me know. I'll look into the code a bit to see if there's any additional error-trapping I can add.

    MP3 Error

    Clockwork,

    Thanks for responding, I reproduced the error but I wouldn't worry about it.
    A while back I used some software to save mp3's from the internet as they were playing.
    Some saved correctly with artist name and song and some saved as WEBDUMP_08D40400.mp3 etc.
    I found that if mp3s like the latter were in the playlist DriveLine wouldn't open. It will play them, but won't reopen after saving the xml playlist file.

    It turns out that just a few must be corrupt.
    I tried 5 different ones with similar names and this is the only one that crashed it.
    I renamed all of them the same way. Don't know what happened.

    I attached the mp3 if you want to check it out, but I wouldn't waste much time.

    Josh,

    Thank you very much for the information, and the sample file to reproduce the problem. I found the cause. The program attempts to clean up the filenames that are displayed in the playlist. Part of that involves removing numeric columns from the filenames (such as track numbers). Unfortunately, the way I wrote it was the lazy way, and now I must pay for that decision.

    The next version I post will have this fixed. This error is caused by a filename with a long string of numbers (usually 10 numeric digits, or, apparently 8 hexadecimal digits) in it.
