Couple of things I wonder if anyone else is experiencing.

Browse by Artist... if I go to browse music, browse by artist and hit the "j" button on the keypad it jumps to the "j" artists but it is in the middle of the artist list instead of being at the top of the "j" artist listings.

Shuffle/Unshuffle behavior. When shuffling or unshuffling a large playlist the server will lock up and stop responding, the players will disconnect and reconnect 20-40 seconds later. Is anything being done to optimise shuffle/unshuffle behavior?

All in all though a very solid release, thanks SD!

I'll let someone who's more familiar with that code respond..

Yes - this is one of the higher priority items for 6.1

Anyone else experience the same thing with browse by artist not going to the top of the artist list for certain letters?

Yes I've seen this (on my Slimp3's). It seems to be aggravated by my
extensive use of TSOP tags (performer sort order). It's not new (for
me) in 6.0 and 6.0.1, but has been there for a long time. I haven't
filed a bug because it's a pain-in-the-butt bug to file. Short of
sending my entire collection, I'm not sure how to describe how to
duplicate it. Maybe the .db file is enough for Dan et al. to figure
out why this is happening.

Yeah - the DB file should be enough.

The existing code displays the list in alphabetical order, taking into
account TSOP tags. Looking at it right now, it seems that it doesn't use
the TSOP information when dealing with number scrolling. This would
explain a discrepancy.

The player-based browsing code is being rewritten for 6.1 to make better
use of the database. You should see improvements fairly shortly.

Thanks,

Vidur,

That's great news. Is there a bug under which this work is being
performed? I'd like to add myself to the cc: list so that I will know
when to check this out and give you feedback.

Thanks,
Ben

The main bug under which the browsing code is being modified is
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=55. It's not directly
related to this specific issue, so feel free to create a new bug and
mark it dependent on bug 55.
