Amarok 2.2.1 "Weightless" publié

Seulement 6 semaines après le lancement d'Amarok 2.2.0, l'équipe d'Amarok est fière de vous présenter cette nouvelle révision : Amarok 2.2.1. Pendant que les développeurs se concentraient sur la résolution de bugs et le perfectionnement des fonctionnalités existantes, quelques nouveautés ont aussi fait leur apparition.

Une grande partie de ces efforts se retrouvent dans la section Podcast, il est maintenant possible d'étiqueter ces podcasts comme nouveaux, de les grouper et de les manipuler sous cette forme. Quand une connexion réseau est disponible, les podcasts se mettent à jour automatiquement, un système d'emblème permet alors d'indiquer leur statut.

La liste de lecture reçoit aussi son lot d'améliorations. La ligne d'édition de la liste de lecture sert maintenant aussi à redimensionner les éléments ainsi qu'à l'édition rapide de métadonnées. Les favoris peuvent être supprimés sans passer par le gestionnaire de favoris. Un nouveau raccourci clavier (Ctrl+J) a été ajouté qui permet de se positionner dans l'onglet de recherche de la liste de lecture.

Dans ses entrailles, Amarok 2.2.1 reçoit des améliorations pour son moteur de collection. Désormais, les mises à jour récursives ne détectent plus les sous-dossiers si ils n'ont pas subi de modifications. Ceci amène une augmentation significative de la vitesse de détection sur les grosses collections. Le moteur filtre aussi les dossiers déjà analysés, au lieu de les traiter une deuxième fois. Sans compter sur le fait que les opérations d'analyse ont été largement améliorées, ce qui amène une augmentation de la vitesse de détection variant de 30% à 300% selon les premiers retours connus.

Cette version introduit une nouvelle fonctionnalité de mise à jour des scripts. Un gestionnaire de mise à jour vérifie les nouvelles versions de scripts primaires (ceux développés par l'équipe d'Amarok), nous permettant de vous proposer des mises à jour rapide en fonction des changements des sites auxquels ils se connectent. Il utilise une signature numérique qui assure que seules des modifications provenant de l'équipe Amarok ne soient prises en compte.

Comme à l'accoutumée, un nombre important de bugs ont été résolus, améliorant ainsi la stabilité du logiciel. La liste complète se trouve dans le fichier de suivi des modifications ci-dessous (en anglais uniquement)..


Nous vous rappelons que notre appel aux dons annuel est actuellement en cours et que ces dons nous permettent de garder le bateau à flot. L'équipe d'Amarok tient à remercier chaleureusement tout les généreux donateurs qui ont déjà contribué.

  • Enhanced --debug feature: When a function takes very long to run (> 5s), we print a special message (DELAY) that can be searched easily.
  • Middle-clicking an item in the Collection Browser appends it to the playlist. Patch by Felix Geyer <debfx-kde@fobos.de>. (BR 197423)

  • Allow changing of playlist layout item sizes using the inline editor.
  • Initial KNotify support.
  • Show total playlist file size in a tooltip when hovering over the total play list time. (BR 91640)

Changes

  • Do not automatically fetch the entire Jamendo database every time the Jamendo service is started.
  • Database now does consistency checks on a semi-regular basis, with full checks upon full rescans.
  • Removal of most SQL during scan result parsing means enormous speedups during collection scanning. (BR 210201)
  • Usability improvements for the Videoclip applet.
  • Restore the proper custom bias when switching between saved biases (BR 209350).
  • Don't crash when receiving bogus data from Last.Fm when asking for recommended songs (BR 208173).
  • UMS device plugin now checks MIME types of tracks both by content and filename. Thanks to Aran Cox <aroncox@gmail.com> for the patch.
  • Some optimization of SQL queries during scan to speed things up. (BR 210201)
  • Use an emblem for indicating a podcast episode is on disk. (BR 209433)
  • Scanning speedups by getting rid of unnecessary code paths and optimizing some queries. Patch by Egbert König <e.kunig@home.nl>. (BR 209822)
  • New main toolbar and renaming of ToolbarNG to Slim Toolbar.
  • Huge performance improvements for the Cover Manager. Thanks to Michael Reiher <redm@gmx.de> for the patch. (BR 210454)
  • Improved usability and look of main control buttons.
  • Multiple usability improvements for the Dynamic Playlist UI.
  • Moved the Podcast category to the top level of the Content panel.

  • Improvements to the row heights in the playlist, making especially the size of the rating stars more consistent.
  • Usability improvements in the Context View's applet tab bar.
  • Collection scanner won't scan a directory more than once if passed in multiple times. Should significantly speed up certain incremental scanning cases.
  • When doing a recursive incremental scan, the scanner will no longer scan subdirectories of changed directories if those subdirectories' mtimes have not changed, for extremely large speedups in some cases. For very flat collection trees, the difference is basically between a small incremental scan and a near full rescan.
  • Ask the user for confirmation before refetching lyrics and overwriting cached ones.
  • It is now possible to stop editing lyrics without saving changes in the lyrics applet.

Bugfixes

  • Fix issue where data structures were loaded with wrong values. (BR 212676)
  • Videoclip applet didn't work correctly on some systems. Thanks for the patch go to Jacopo De Simoi.
  • Proportions of layout stay correct after window resizing. (BR 200527)
  • The GUI layout is now crash persistant. (BR 211509)
  • Ensure that ReplayGain float values are stored in the database with a period, not a comma. (BR 212676)

  • Enabled C++ exceptions handling in Amarok. This fixes various crashes with liblastfm. (BR 212115)
  • Reversed the priority of repeat and random modes. Repeat now always takes precedence. (BR 178056)

  • Automatic playlist scrolling was broken in some cases. (BR 193459)
  • The On Screen Display now uses a sane font size with all display resolutions. (BR 195186)
  • Fix rare regression where inaccessible subfolders (due to permissions) in the collection could not be picked up by an incremental scan when permissions were fixed and their mtime updated, requiring a full rescan.
  • When using a MySQL server with "Watch Folders For Changes" disabled, very long periods of idle Amarok could allow the server to close the local connection. This is now detected and should be worked around.
  • Correctly set the lyrics applet's title when displaying HTML formatted lyrics
  • Track selection is now correctly preserved when using Dynamic Playlists. Patch by John Atkinson <john@fauxnetic.co.uk>. (BR 208349)

Old toolbar was pretty, new default one is ugly and slim toolbar is useless (for me)
