Version 3.3.0 is released

Post by SubJunk »

General:

You can download it from the front page.

This release lets you further customize your server name, automatically muxes more types of files, improves video compatibility, especially on Panasonic TVs, and more!


Changes since 3.2.0:
  • General:
    • Added the option to toggle the display of the profile name after the server name on the renderer
    • Added a warning on the Status tab if the UMS port is being blocked
    • Added some missing entries to UMS.conf
    • Added automatic video scaling to renderer resolution limits in FFmpeg
    • Added the ability to use asterisks for the "Force transcoding" and "Skip transcoding" options
    • Added config option "itunes_library_path"
    • Improved detection of which videos should be muxed automatically when using MEncoder or FFmpeg
    • Fixed files with compatible video but incompatible audio not muxing video
    • Fixed support for outputting 24-bit FLAC files as 24-bit by muxing them with video
    • Fixed audio playback if VLC is enabled
    • Made server restarts more reliable
    • Made sure FFmpeg outputs a compatible colorspace when transcoding to H.264
    • Made sure the transcode folder appears before files instead of after (below)
    • Renamed config setting "ffmpeg_font_config" to "ffmpeg_fontconfig"
    • Renamed config setting "hide_new_media" to "hide_new_media_folder"
  • Renderers:
    • Improved video compatibility on Panasonic TVs
    • Updated the PS3 image
    • Updated the XBMC logo
  • Languages:
    • Minor language tweaks
    • Renamed "Advanced Monitoring" to "Include in New Media folder"

Upgrade Notes:

For all versions below 3.2.0:
If you have enabled FFmpeg's fontconfig or hid the New Media folder, you will need to re-apply those settings.

For all versions below 3.0.0-b1:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. Windows users can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

virtual_folders = name|/mnt/path,/mnt/path2;name2|/mnt/path3; <-- dosn't work

it gave exception that "/mnt/path2;name2| could not be readed.

virtual_folders_file + json file work ok

and why it make a folder "/" which I see its real root '/' - and both UMS.conf files dont include it. Is it a bug then ?
I removed folders from my config, default config is not edited. and at virtualfolders.conf I dont include any folders with name '/'

Hi sapsa. The note in UMS.conf explains what went wrong:
# Note: Backslashes must be doubled. For example, if you have a folder named
# SubFolder inside ParentFolder, write it like ParentFolder\\SubFolder

Ain't backslash \ use in winOS ?
weren't slashs / use on Linux ?

If for both I should use \\ then ok.

But why then when using only virtualfodlers.conf I end up with "/" ? Should i use double backslash in virtualfolders.conf too ?

Option to both check for update and check automatically for updates is greyed out for me (Mac version).
