    public release 4B- Some important bug fixes

    die bug die!

    finally squelched that nasty bug allowing mouseclicks/finger pokes while windows are animating. could cause some really annoying problems see below for all...

    Public Release 4B-

    Main Application

    New Features: None

    Bug Fixes: fixed an issue where the user could send events while windows are animating, which in turn could cause the interface to become unresponsive if the key window was changed during an animation

    fixed a rather moot bug where the incomplete modules wouldn't exit completely causing a problem that would result in an unresponsive interface if the user entered the main application options without clearing the erroneous state by entering the music module

    Changes: None

    Known Issues: Using expose can have dire consequences (I can only duplicate when the visualizer is open). (may not ever be fixed so the best solution at the moment is to not use expose)

    Music Module

    New Features: Added ability to start playing tracks from an artist/album selection by pushing the playbutton which previously had done nothing

    Bug Fixes: Fixed an issue where pushing previous/next would start playing a song unless music was already playing
    Improved accuracy when the table views determine if a row was clicked or if the user had scrolled to a different selection

    Changes: changed the table views to both show the background instead of just one of them
    had to change the visualizer not to animate out of view when closing (somehow moving the window off screen would cause problem that could lead to a crash if the user would repeatedly open and close the visualizer)

    Known Issues: None

    I decided one more fixer up wouldn't hurt before I move on to release 5.
    please enjoy. get it from the usual place.

    Public Release 4C-

    Main Application

    New Features: Added ability to show/hide mouse in the general preferences

    Bug Fixes: Nothing noticeable

    fixed a rather moot bug where the incomplete modules wouldn't exit completely causing a problem that would result in an unresponsive interface if the user entered the main application options without clearing the erroneous state by entering the music module

    Changes: tweaked the layout and appearance of general preferences
    finally got around to making the sliders change color
    dead code stripping

    Known Issues: Using expose can have dire consequences (I can only duplicate when the visualizer is open). (may not ever be fixed so the best solution at the moment is to not use expose)

    Music Module

    New Features: None

    Bug Fixes: added more boundary checking in the AAC atom parser so prevent buggy behavior with somewhat corrupted or lousily constructed AACs (seen with some podcasts)

    Changes: minor speed boost when playing a new song

    Known Issues: None

    Public Release 5-

    Main Application

    New Features: key bindings to controls tab- change focus space- execute x-close window up/down rotate dial
    added a master volume controller visible in any options even in any module options

    Bug Fixes: fixed a slew of problems with accurate dial creation and rotation. it is now 100% accurate.
    patched some memory leaks
    fixed an issue where the mouse would become visible (when set to be invisible) when the application becomes active such as after waking from sleep
    fixed a crash resulting from attempting to rearrange the module button in focus after launching a module
    fixed an issue that would allow a background window to move forward


    Changes: dead code stripping
    made the dial drawing more efficient
    marginally improved app launch time
    dial has a new layout which now only supports 10 modules. (future release may see dynamic resizing)
    consolidated dial rotation code
    smaller memory footprint
    combined all window subclasses into a hierarchy to facilitate future additions/changes and to simplify things and reduce repeated code hopefully alleviate some bugs more easily
    tableviews now back their selection with a colored oval (changes color with the rest of the interface) instead of a gradient
    overhaul of application graphics and color


    Known Issues: hitting the action key while dragging the dial can get it into some interesting positions

    Music Module

    New Features: user can now configure the browser screen to their choosing (still has just 4 active buttons at the bottom, but they can drag replacements in as well as rearrange the active buttons)
    added several new filter choices. (playlist, song, audiobook, podcast... not yet active except for song)
    beginnings of key binding support (user can scroll lists and choose selections, but no music control)
    added a module volume controller in the preferences so user can set music volume (will eventually be a factor of master volume)
    added the ability to jump to sections in the active list by typing the first letter (virtual keyboard coming soon)
    enhanced the ability to play all songs from any given selection by double tapping/clicking the selection (artist/album/etc)
    added support for track number on now playing screen


    Bug Fixes: changed track time to be a larger data type in order to allow for longer tracks. long tracks could previously cause an overflow.


    Changes: completely new music browser. now only one window with a split view. much easier to manage
    track duration now decrements to reflect time remaining
    track times now calculate to allow for hours had previously so now a track that is over an hour now reflects that so a track that is an hour and 14 min will now show 1:14:00 instead of 74:00 for example
    various graphical improvements
    overhaul of module graphics and color
    added an album art reflection


    Known Issues: Visualizer can cause application to crash on rare occasion (expose induced)
    Buttons at the bottom of the music browser don't have a focus ring but are in fact active. put your memory to the test
    no way to get back into the responder chain once stepping off it with tab (without using a mouse/finger)

    sorry once again for the extraordinary delay. Ill try not to let it happen again ;-)

    will be posted on our site shortly
