I feel as though I am being dim here. I have downloaded and installed the most recent version (7.7.2 r0).
However, when comparing what I see on my desktop with what is shown on the Wiki pages here:

http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/SqueezePlay

and particularly here:

http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/SqueezePlayUI

there is much missing.

I don't see the "track buttons" that allow a track to be played, added to playlist or added as a favourite.

Similarly, when moving the mouse, it suggests a "play controller" should appear.

I don't get any of that. Is the Wiki article a wish list, or do I need to install a differnt version or plug-ins/add-ons to enable the enhanced experience?

I am running LMS 7.7

Many thanks from all in advance

You'll note that it has been almost 4 years since the wiki page has been updated. There have been a lot of changes to the firmware/software since then. The current SqueezePlay interface looks just like a SB Radio, SB Touch, or SB Controller.

The big question is, despite the outdated wiki, can you find your way around the SqueezePlay menus? If so, go with that.

The wiki is ancient.

Left-click and hold on a track to get a pop-up for play options.

That's terrific. Many thanks.I'll poke around and see if it will serve the purpose.

I have used the web interface to control my players (Rio receivers running SLimRio), but it's pretty clunky. I have also played with Moose which keeps a local copy of the database to allow searching and selecting. That's snappier, but it tends to choke when switching between players, particularly when they have many items in the queue to be played.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your prompt replies
