Version 10.0.0 released

Post by SubJunk » Thu Jan 14, 2021 8:35 am

General:

Welcome to UMS v10!

V10 focuses on providing more dynamic features to let you filter and sort your media in useful ways, and some big improvements to the web interface. A full list of changes is in our wiki here, and some features are described briefly in the features section of this website.

Since the alpha release, we have fixed some bugs and improved resiliency of metadata lookups. Thanks for all the feedback from our alpha testers. We hope to see even more feedback now that the final release is here.

Download:

Downloads for Windows, macOS and Linux, and commands for Docker and Homebrew are available on our download page or from our official mirrors.


Changes since 9.8.3:
  • DLNA browsing:
    • When browsing a TV show in the Media Library, all videos across all seasons are visible.
    • There are two new folders within the Movies and TV Shows folders - Filter by Progress and Filter by Information.
    • Filter by Progress contains the Watched and Unwatched folders which used to sit within the Videos folder in the Media Library
    • Filter by Information lets you filter the videos by a new rich metadata set (actors, genres, country, director, genre, IMDb rating, release date).
    • Alongside that is a similar folder Filter by Information which lets you filter the videos by API metadata (actors, genres, etc.)
    • New folders Recently Added, Recently Played, In Progress and Most Played are in the Media Library
  • Web interface:
    • Added breadcrumbs at the top of each page
    • When in the TV Shows area of the Media Library, the TV shows themselves are shown as thumbnails, with covers from the API
    • When browsing a TV show, a movie, or a TV episode, any API metadata is displayed along with a large cover image, including actors, awards, classification, country, directors, genres, plot, ratings, year, and total seasons.
    • On those pages above, the colors on the pages are based on the cover image
    • Clicking on an individual actor, country, director, genre, or start year, takes you to a list of other media that matches that metadata
    • The last few items in the Recently Added, Recently Played, In Progress and Most Played folders are displayed on the front page
    • Each TV show and movie has an IMDb icon and direct link if one is found
    • Folder and media covers are shown
    • Fixed bugs with the Back button
    • Version has moved to the settings menu
    • Minor design updates
  • General:
    • API is enabled even without filename prettifying
    • Failed API lookups are debounced by 1 week to avoid network spam
    • Changed prettified season/episode number formatting from Series - 101 - Episode to Series S01E01 - Episode
    • Fixed some bugs with prettifying to support more files
    • Added support for audio playlist thumbnails (thanks, sf666!)
    • Playlist folders are correctly identified via UPnP (thanks, sf666!)
    • Fixed automatic file watching
  • Renderers:

Great job.

Hope I can do some more testing and help on github.

Recently played is only available when the media library is activated?

Thanks! Yes these are all Media Library features, since that is the part of UMS that caches media metadata
