Version 7.0.0-a1 released

Postby SubJunk » Sat Dec 31, 2016 4:58 pm

General:

This release adds new features to dynamically sort your media, most notably there are new "TV Shows" and "Movies" folders that are populated automatically with content from your shared folders.

Your feedback on this pre-release will be valuable, so let us know how it is working for you!

Note: This is an alpha version, which means the feature list is incomplete and may be unstable. Use at your own risk.
Note: It is recommended you take a backup of your profile directory before installing this, as the changes to the fully played data are not reversible. The location of your profile directory are near the top of the "Logs" tab in the program.


Download:

Windows
Linux
OS X

Note: These unstable releases are for versions of Java from 7 upwards, but we will continue to release all stable versions in Java 7 and 8 variations.


Changes since 6.5.2:

  • General:
    • Added "TV Shows", "Movies", "3D Movies", and "Unsorted" folders to the "Media Library" folder
    • Added right-click menu to navigation pane
    • Renamed "Cache" folder to "Media Library" folder and enabled it by default
    • Changed "Hide" options to "Show", e.g. "Hide Media Library folder" becomes "Show Media Library folder"
    • Library is re-scanned whenever a file is added/changed/removed in a shared folder
    • Fixed bug where removing a directory in UMS does not remove its contents from the Media Library.
    • Fixed sorting in dynamic folders
    • Fully played tracking is stored in the SQL database

I also tried several files with ps4 media player. Unlike before most files seems to play now, but 720p files weren't full screened .. same files with vlc were, so it could be a settings-thing in media player. No time to test more as its time to go BOOOOOZZEEEEEE

Thanks for the new version mates, and HNY everyone

i've tested a couple of vídeos and images on the ps4 media player its working fine most of the time i had a slowdown problem on just one vídeo in 1440p the rest in 1080p or lesser resolutions worked fine. the áudio is also ok good quality, no noises, no delay its seems pretty fine for a alpha version. my laptop is with Windows 10 64 bits, the java version is 8 update 122 b04 early acess also in 64 bits.



keep up with the good work guys and thanks again for this 7 version. :D

Thanks guys for the release and all the best for you and this pretty little piece of software in the next year. :)


Did a quick testing after a clean install.

With a lot of shared folders with many files i got some java errors (out of memory) and ums did freeze.

I dropped some of the folders and now its working fine. Will add the rest gradually.

Jens

Cool, glad to see there is a 3D Movies folder as I am a fan of 3D.

BTW I just bought a NAS and found out UMS is available on it so I will have to take a look. There won'be be a nice GUI like on Windows so I will have to look at the config file. Hope it will work without having to touch it.

I noticed i can't autoupdate from 6.5.2 to 7.0.0-a1. If i push the update button, it just says "No update available"

Edit: Oh it's a not a "final" release?. I also see the main download from the frontpage is still 6.5.2

Thanks for the testing and feedback guys. It does seem there's a memory leak in here somewhere so that will need to be fixed :)
