Hi All,
I'm currently using iTunes for Windows as the backend for Slimserver. I was
wondering if it would be possible to bring through the rating for each song
(it is in the xml file) into the UI. It would be nice to be able to display
in the Now Playing section. You might decide to rerate a song while
listening to it. Also, is there a tag for marking a song as explicit? I've
got a two year old who I don't want listening to Frank Zappa or The Streets
while I've got a full library shuffle going. I know I can put a keyword in
the comments field and then use a smart playlist to filter them out, but is
there a more formal way of doing things?

Got a couple of bugs too. Using 13/1 exe running as service. Web Interface
is reporting 0 tracks until i play one, when it registers just that track.
i.e Library contains 400 artists, 0 tracks and 200 albums. Also when
skipping a song, the slimp3 UI is briefly showing the last track (before the
one that is playing) before the screen gets updated. Finally, playlist
playing shuffled, pressed Down to see enxt track and found myself at the top
of the list, ahd to scroll all the way down past Current PLaying to get to
the next track. I believe it was then ok.
Cheers,
James

These are great reports/suggestions. Could you take a moment and put
all of the details into our bug system here:

If not, let me know and I'll try to extract from your posting...
