Xion Audio Player

Xion 1.0 build 96 Beta Release

Beta Builds of Xion. These are builds that are not quite ready for Release, but need feedback and bug submissions in order to move it to Release Status

Postby Cliff Cawley » March 31st, 2008, 12:38 am

WARNING:
This is a Beta Build. That means it has fixes and features that are NEW. It is also possible it has bugs that are NEW! If you are looking for stability, please don't expect this build to be perfectly stable. It may have issues. If on the other hand you are happy to try this build out and post any bugs back in this thread, then please do!

Download Installer Version:
r2 Studios Server -> http://www.r2.com.au/downloads/files/beta/qa-xion_v1.0b96.exe
OR
Xion Server -> http://xion.r2.com.au/download/beta/qa-xion_v1.0b96.exe

Changelist:
  • Update G15 LCD control to use notification to show when its started
  • Re-arrange Artist/Title on the main screen
  • Fix VuMeter animations 9, 10, 11 freezing on last frame and flickering on first frame
  • Removed the Station name from the end of the track title until tag formatting is enabled again
  • Fix Library->Playlist integration so that you can once again load playlists
  • Fix Library highlight colours
  • Re-Add support for Track Title format
  • Give the playlist window focus when using the Open File keyboard global shortcut
  • Fix update of Radio Streams and ensure we get HTTP if no ICY data is available
  • Fix the Radio tags for OGG radio stations
  • Modify how Radio State is displayed
  • Ensure that Radio Tags obey user formatting
  • Modify Default Tag string so that - is added/removed depending on if a Title/Artist exists or not (Users will need to manually clear this field in order to reset to default)
  • Add a separate window for vieweing Radio/Net Stream information when viewing its properties, instead of making it look like it has standard tag information that you can save and remove
  • Fix kbps reading for netstreams that don't report it from the server
  • Modify Sorting for all lists, so that we use Natural Sort order instead of Ascii Sort order
  • Tweak the natural sorting to elevate numbers above values. Test now seems to be 100% similar to Explorer sorting
  • Tweak Natural sorting algorithm to ignore no alphanumeric and numeric characters when comparing, and continue on to the next character
  • Add Tab Control to the Skin Browser window
  • Move the View all skins to the far left
  • Make the View all button disable/enable instead if show/hide when available
  • Allow Animation frames to inherit more properties from the main Animation Layer set, such as moveable
  • Add the ability to Reset animation Types 1 and 2 using the new action_anim_reset or acanrset keywords
  • Add the ability to trigger a button object (as though someone had clicked on it) using the new action_object_trigger and acobtrig keywords
  • Fix bug with animtype 1 and 2 where the last frame action is triggered twice
  • Add the ability for Animation Types 1 and 2 to reset playing when it has indi_active/indi_inactive assigned to itself and you give/take focus. This allows for animations when getting/losing focus
  • Add support for trans_volumeb, trans_volumem and trans_volumet for Transparent Bass,Mid and Treble
  • Add support for triggeron_songchange and trigonsc keywords. This basically allows you to automatically trigger a button, layer or animation when the song changes

If you find bugs specifically related to this build, please post them here instead of the Bug reporting forum. Any feedback positive or negative should also go in here, no new threads. This way all feedback, etc related to this build will be in the one place.


ABOUT THIS BUILD:

Loads of new stuff since the last release (less than one month ago). Check out the new skin system features! They're all documented on the Layer Chart

I'm hoping to do monthly Public releases from now on, with in between Beta builds, so please give me feedback on this build! Let me know of any bugs! If there are none, I'll release 97!

Enjoy!

Cliff :)

Radio stream testing

Some playlist files still don't open and start playing when Xion isn't running before the file is ran. This is not the case with a few of mine, which are mp3 streams apparently. Will PM you the files if needed for testing.

Variable bitrates are now displayed as proper, although static. If that was intended, there should be something added to it that would show the presence of a variable bitrate.

OGG stream titles are fixed, thanks!

You'll have to send me the files so I can reproduce here.

It's pretty much just an average of the current bitrate as the song is downloaded incrementally. There's no point flicking around all the rates anyway.

It looks nice, but the skin viewing window should be extended a bit in terms of height to fit in two rows of skins, at least.

Yup, I forgot to do it before the Beta release, already fixed and ready for build 97 :)

all things seem to work propperly again (didn´t check the new skinning features yet).

The bass/mid/treble anim doesn´t flicker anymore. Anyway I never saw the treble really acting much, maybe it is set to super sonic ;-)

My suggestion for the skin browser is to make it get back to the ´mother skin´ (and to center it) after ´(view) all skins´, so one doesn´t have to scroll again to go on. (was also the case for former builds...)

Yes, sorry the Skin browser window is only showing half as many skins as I was planning. Fixed for the next build :)
