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 » April 5th, 2008, 12:53 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_v1.0b97.exe
OR
Xion Server -> http://xion.r2.com.au/download/beta/qa-xion_v1.0b97.exe

Changelist:
  • Fix the default size of the Skin Browser so that it shows two rows by default
  • Fix Year and Track not being properly formatted in the Title Display
  • Tweak the startup process when launching with files to help fix songs not starting immediately
  • Fix File Locking so that when you stop a song, Xion completely unloads the file to allow deleting, etc
  • Fix Radio streams being connected to, but stopped, when you start Xion; even when you've turned autoplay off
  • Update BASS and BASS plugins to 2.4
  • Ensure Xion scans up to 64k of data before declaring a file is invalid
  • Fix Always On Top, now includes all windows and functions properly, not just 99% of the time
  • When pasting a copied select in the playlist, paste it just after your current selection, otherwise at the end of the list - Thanks Kat!

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:

New version of the BASS Audio Engine, 2.4 along with upgraded verisons of the plugins. I've fixed everything so it works again, but let me know if you find any issues!

If this build works for everyone, I'll release build 98! Thanks everyone for testing this!

Enjoy!

Cliff :)

New bug: Crashes when a file without tagging information is played or added to the playlist. This didn't happen in 95 and 96 ...

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a file with Xion - plays fine
2. Use a tool like Mp3Tag to remove tags from the file
3. Open the same file with Xion - crashes

alternatively: Play an arbitrary WAV file (WAV doesn't support tags) - crashes

Same error here. xiontags.dll at fault and files not loading when tags are missing. Same goes for radio streams.
