this post isn't to demand immediate fixes or anything like that, i just wanted to list those bugs i have voted for, and i am curious what lists others have of bugs they want resolved?

with as many posters as we have here, i think everyone should create an account in the "bug tracker" system, IF ONLY so they can vote, and demonstrate to SD where the priorities should be.

its not any harder than using the msg board. and it can be very informative, plus its a way to be heard!

here are my "unresolved" bugs that i voted for, altho it should be noted some are feature enhancements, not true bugs.

PLEASE VOTE FOR MY BUGS! :) (click the numbers)

1053 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1053) Ability to cycle through multiple screensavers.
1607 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1607) Analog VU screensaver should show now playing at start of each track correctly
4079 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4079) Browse Years ignores pulldown sort order
4329 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4329) Firmware Upgrade uses power off brightness setting
4335 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4335) Remote streaming replaygain
4631 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4631) Adding music via Browse Music Folder doesn't generate artwork thumbnails
4633 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4633) Browse genres page bar and sort order are broken
4699 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4699) GD crashes slimserver when bad JPEG header encountered

(this one [above] is a GD issue at heart, and not something that affects too many people, but its a killer if it does)

4786 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4786) Automatic Replay Gain
4874 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4874) Artwork only scan

Squeezebox
4856 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4856) Firmware update whitout remote

*** as fyi:

these ones WERE resolved:

3255 alphapagebar links miss targets in browse artwork
3350 Browse Artwork doesn't recognise Various Artist albums
4294 Provide Feedback from the scanner as to scan progress.
4762 slimtray.exe doesn't release file handles

Have you looked at SaverSwitcher? I'm biased, but I think it addresses both these issues.

thats cool, but i have to admit i'm not good with SS plugins. i haven't had much luck with them. hopefully 7.0 fixes that.

any chance SD would take your work here, and incorporate it into the main pgm? is that ever done? i don't know the ettiquette in such matters.

whats your bug list?

I doubt it. We're rather concentrating on the main tasks and leave the special features to plugins. Many are asking for a SlimServer Light, or asking to not add any feature, but concentrate on improving the current feature set. It's not that bad an idea.
