XMplay 3.4 released
« on: April 03, 2007, 02:40 PM »
Here is the changelog:
new stuff includes output plugins, library directory monitoring, fullscreen visualisations, nested archive support, increased EQ bands, embedded CUE sheet support, CDDB info caching and a bunch of other stuff.

Here's the full "History" list...

* Output plugin system
* Optional resampling and downmixing
* Library directory monitoring
* Fullscreen visualisations
* Recursive/nested archive support
* EQ increased to 9 bands
* Actual filetype (not just extension) shown in playlist/library
* Per-extension saved settings replaced by per-filetype
* Ignoring of unwanted filetypes when adding new files
* DSP locking (prevent overriding by saved settings)
* Playlists in the library
* Library mass-tagging
* "Age" record added to library
* Waiting for track endings to decay
* Support for embedded CUE sheets
* Choice of CDDB info when there are duplicates
* CDDB info caching
* Info window text magnification
* Bubble text size configuration
* Sorting of search results by filename
* M3U playlist saving
* Scanning for playlists in HTML pages
* Drag'n'dropping between playlist and library
* MOD channel muting via middle-click in pattern display
* MOD auto-loop options
* Year tag extraction from MODs
* MOD signature shown in "General" info
* Auto-amp automatically disabled when replaygain is active
* Extended output buffer size range
* Balance shortcuts
* MOD interpolation/ramping/surround shortcuts
* Random played tracking always retained (option removed)
* Skinning improvements (see skinning kit)

With the introduction of output plugin support come new DirectSound and ASIO output plugins.

To better support nested archives, the archive plugin system has been updated, and so updated 7Z / LHA / PP / RAR / WAD / XPK / ZIP archive plugins are also available now (the rest will probably be updated later). Old archive plugins will still work too, but not as well.

The FLAC and MIDI input plugins have also been updated. The FLAC plugin has been updated to the FLAC 1.1.4 core, and also now supports embedded CUE sheets. The MIDI plugin contains a lot of improvements, notably reverb and chorus effects, resonant low-pass filters, and support for portamento and a bunch of XG/GS sysex/NRPN.

All the plugin systems have been updated, but while old input and archive plugins are still supported, old DSP plugins are not. For those using the Scrobbler ( plugin, an update should be available later today/tomorrow.
