    that's really all i need so as long as the music side works, i'm happy


    just thought of something-- if i donate to OM, does the dev's get it, or does it only go to justin-who-is-no-more?
    There is no repeat (unless Borte added it recently). I personally have not ran through testing all the music side of things yet so I cannot quote on stability. HD radio and such are not working yet but I hope to have them all updated this week.

    The sourceforge donate goes to Justin as of right now. Will have to discuss this with the current active devs. I have my own in sig that I use to buy new carpc hardware to add in/support.

    Newly rewritten sensor framework should be checked in tomorrow night unless I come across any issues.

    It has repeat active by default and as of now there is no way of turning it off. Is than an option that people would like to have (on/off for repeat)?
    Failure is not an option...

    Some of the skins are not yet updated to use the new graphics so some will still look a bit "funny", this is a work in progress though so more and more plugins will be converted in the coming days.

    Yes!

    Also if on shuffle/random, and user presses "previous track", OM will pick another random track. it does NOT go back thru the last XX tracks played. I think it more intuitive if OM remembered the last XX tracks (let's say 20) that were played so when the user hits PREV it will go back through those tracks instead of playing random tracks.

    Yes I understand that I was just saying great progress is being made. I can't wait until it's good enough for an official release.

    no that is fine for me.. all of my playlists are over 1,000 songs, so i rarely hit the end, but it gets really annoying to have to re-do a playlist in the middle of traffic... the only reason i brought it up is because RR's repeat function is disabled by default, i always enable it.

    +1. i would be ok with remembering the last 5 tracks if that was easier on the programming side..

    Remembering the last 5 or 20 is the same thing just the size of the buffer. I'm working on a solution for this where you can go backwards trough the last played songs. What should happen when it reaches the end of this list? Stop going backwards or start generating random songs?

    Excellent question. I'm thinking stop going backwards. This would be a cue to the user that you have reached the end of the buffer. They can then press Next or Play to resume random play.

    Of course, generating random songs is fine also, but there is no notice that they have reached the end of the buffer. Not important, but I personally prefer the first option to stop. Maybe one of those fancy pop-up banners saying "End of List" or something :-)

    Now, this brings up another question: While scrolling backwards through the buffer, and the user presses 'Next', does it move forward thru the buffer? Then when reaching that end of the buffer, does it stop or play random tracks again? I think when it reaches the "most recent" end of the buffer that it resumes random play.

    So basically, during random playback:

    - PREV scrolls backward through time through the buffer
    - When reaching the end, stop with message
    - NEXT scrolls forward through time through the buffer
    - When reaching the end, continue with random play
    - PLAY (while not paused) jumps to end of the buffer (most recent) and resumes random play
    - PLAY (while paused) plays resumes where left off when PAUSE pressed.

    Make sense to anyone else but me?
