    Public Release 3 now available

    Sorry to say that the feature complete music module I mentioned, (see poll thread)
    will likely be delayed due to my actual job and some unexpected difficulties in implementing new features. Fear not, I still have a new release for you all today.

    Public Release 3-

    Main Application

    New Features: None

    Bug Fixes: None

    Changes: Window animations are now handled by the windows themselves (does not apply to bezels)

    Known Issues: Dial does not always calculate the "ideal" lock position

    Music Module

    New Features: support for embedded album art (AAC only)
    support for track data, including album art, in visualizer
    playing a song now displays a "now playing" screen (incomplete)
    when reentering the music module from the main screen, if a song is playing user is taken to "now playing" screen

    Bug Fixes: some variables were not being properly initialized, causing a crash upon launch under certain circumstances. Now fixed

    Changes: previous button will now restart a playing track (if less than 1 second in)
    window animations are now consistent

    Known Issues: Navigating by artist will show a "No Album" section in each artists respective album list, however it is never populated even when it should be
    A problem with the visualizer may cause a "crash" on app exit

    it will be uploaded to neonboombox.com shortly (give us an hour)

    nice work. will d/l and try tonight.... Is the music playback still the only working feature of the app at the moment? all the other features give me a blank screen, at least I can say release 3B actually loaded and worked on my PPC mac mini!

    Thumbs up Public Release 4!

    we are getting close to feature complete!

    Public Release 4-

    Main Application

    New Features: None

    Bug Fixes: Dial Now properly calculates the ideal locking position -
    Fixed a graphical glitch with the power button bezel -

    Changes: changed the color changer slider to match the rest of the interface (doesn't yet change color tho) -
    whole slew of under the hood changes tweaks and adjustments -

    Known Issues: slider doesn't change color with the rest of the interface

    Music Module

    New Features: Added a track scrubber to the now playing screen (doesn't yet change color)
    Added repeat in options
    Added shuffle in options
    Added and "All" selection to artists, albums, and genres

    Bug Fixes: fixed an issue where after the player moved on to the next song the player would repeatedly stop every so often
    fixed the issue where the "No Album" for each artist would be empty even when they shouldn't be
    fixed some overflows in the aac and mp3 parser
    fixed a bug where clicking on the previous/next buttons would cause unexpected behavior

    Changes: album tracks are now sorted by track number
    visualizer no starts rendering immediately when opening the visualizer instead of waiting for the window to finish animating
    album art is now loaded before the now playing screen is animated in
    updated button graphics to match the main application
    whole slew of under the hood changes tweaks and adjustments
    double clicking table view selections is no longer necessary

    Known Issues: slider doesn't yet change color with the interface

    Application will be posted shortly. I am awaiting the updated graphics.

    P.S. I am hopping release 5 will be feature complete for the music module so I'm going to list what Is coming so you people can tell me if I left out anything

    Public Release 5 road map-


    Main Application

    New Features: Added a Master volume control in the preferences
    User Preferences are now saved and loaded each use
    Expanded Framework for SDK

    Bug Fixes: ?

    Changes: slider now changes color with the rest of the app

    Known Issues: ?

    Music Module

    New Features: Added a volume controller in the preferences. (will be relative to master volume)
    Added support for 3rd party visualizers
    Added new visualizer(s)
    Added support for track number in now playing/visualizer
    Added ability to set visualizer color(s)
    User preferences are now saved and loaded each use

    Bug Fixes: ?

    Changes: slider now changes color with the rest of the app
    under the hood adjustment to use SDK framework instead of module included classes for objects/functions that will be globally used

    Known Issues: ?

    Please let me know of anything I am missing ;-)

    P.S. If you cant tell from the coming features in release 5 I am revamping the SDK to try and generate at lease SOME interest (and to simplify/better demonstrate how to make modules). if not just for creating your own visualizer (its very easy if you are at all familiar with quartz composer)
