I have been using 6.5.0 for a couple of weeks but have been getting increasingly frustrated with some of the changes. I have now reverted to 6.3.0 and am happy again. My main experiences with 6.5.0 are as follows:

1. Random Mix does not work. No names on genres (only numbers)
2. No browse available for Album Art
3. Album Art image size is small and not centralised. Much bigger centralised images with 6.3.0.

I am using WinXP SP2 and all music files are mp3.

fixed in more recent nightly builds, but also fixable given procedures
already noted in the forum. Delete all folders in
Plugins/RandomPlay/HTML, except for EN. This is an upgrade problem
moving from 6.3 to 6.5. It is also solved by completely uninstalling
6.3, and deleting remanants, then installing 6.5.0. An install of
6.5.1 nightly builds will clear this up for you automatically

Also noted in prior posts on the forum, AND in the release notes. This
is now located in Browse Albums, with an icon in the top right for
"gallery view". This allows cover art viewing for ALL album lists,
instead of just a top level. A cookie is used to store this pref. Try
it, you'll like it.

yup. It was a requested change for "reasonable size". I'd point out
the bug report, but I'm too annoyed by the unending bitching from both
sides to waste time looking it up again. I'll let the requester speak
up if he feels so inclined.

Thank you for your helpful reply. I have now got Random Mix and Album Art browsing working.

Would it be possible to include a control for adjusting Album Art image size and position?

Album Art thumbnail size can be adjusted here:

Server Settings --> Interface --> Thumbnail Size.

Not sure about position.

Cheers.
