    Announcement thread LMS 8.0 - what are the differences?

    Hi

    I can't find the announcement for LMS 8.0 (searching for "LMS 8.0" yields no results) - can somebody point me to it, or to the changes in this version compared to the nightly releases?

    Thanks,

    Rainer

    Thanks - But I was looking for the release announcement to see the changes. I have installed it already (and it is working - thanks).

    The changelog summarises the main changes. Git hub can be used to look at individual file changes https://github.com/Logitech/slimserv...are/public/8.0

    I think the main feature is online services integration but the a secondary reason is that it is time to move onto a major version otherwise LMS will be seemingly stuck on minor version changes when in fact significant changes have happened.

    I'm sorry, I totally forgot to do this... but then there's not really
    much to announce yet, except that the work has started. But it's all
    still in heavy development. Not ready for primetime. (though I'm already
    using it at home, concentrating on the issues _I_ am facing :-))

    Happy to see this:

    New Features:
    Online music library integration: list your collection of albums vetted in your favorite streaming service as part of your "My Music" collection.


    Does that mean that Tidal favorited tracks (and even "My mixes" autogenerated playlists?) will become findable within the LMS interface ? I really, really miss those features.

    I'm not sure where the journey goes, yet. I haven't updated the TIDAL
    implementation yet, as I don't want to break the offical implementation
    on the way. But currently the integration is only albums and playlists.
    I don't think I'm going to do favorited tracks. But we'll see.

    Albums and playlists would be a big step forward. But here's a big vote for favorited tracks too - a lot of genres that I like e.g. reggae are and have always been very track-based, any albums are often (especially golden age 70s reggae) just a compilation of singles and b-sides of varying quality. BTW, as I mentioned in another post regarding Tidal, after I complained about missing search results for another Carribean-based artist, where only one of or two of seven albums would appear in search results, now all appear through LMS. Not sure if anything was changed or who changed it. Good news, anyway.

    How would you imagine a list of tracks to be included in LMS? Just as
    individual "albums"?
