    Let's here some suggestions for SlimServer 7

    Since 6.5 is pretty much in the bag, what do you want in SlimServer 7?

    Me? I feel that the two biggest omissions in SlimServer currently are the lack of

    - multiple music libraries

    - individual user customization

    Multiple libraries would solve the Singles problem for me, so thats a good one.

    Obviously there are the existing tickets, like the network clock for player syncing that is important.

    That pretty much does it for me, can't think of anything else that is dependant on SS to make it perfect for me

    I would like a plugin for MediaPortal to use SlimServers library instead of the current MyMusic in MP, but thats not SDs problem. I might need to have a bash at .NET in the not too distant future....

    drm issues are more to do with the providers than the clients.

    DRM has nothing to do with the legality of music downloads.. but that's another issue entirely! ;-)

    Better integration of he Alien BBC use of mplayer so that albums ripped in rm format could be played conveniently.

    Pause/restart using mplayer that worked as best it could even after a delay, say be remmebering the position and trying to reposition. This is currently an issue with the BBC archived stuff and would be for rm on disk if the above got done.

    Some mechanism for automatically detecting update for plugins in use - like the extensions management in Firefox.

    yup, well aware of that one.
    digital rights doesn't mean everywhere.
    it means you have to do what the provider says, if they even let you
    have a chance.

    Multiple music libraries is the biggie for me too, alongside User Personas.

    A music library would contain a list of configurable music folders to scan (ie. rather than using shortcuts), with settings to define when/what type of scan to perform on each configured folder.

    Music libraries could be used to represent specific users music, or for other needs. Eg. "Phil's Music", "Alex's Music", "Live Concerts", "Squeeze Network" could be different music libraries.

    I'd like to be able to set up several user accounts, with an easy mechanism to switch between them. Each account would have different settings, eg. slimscrobbler/LastFM user, Live365 user, screensaver, etc. Each account could select a music library to use.

    Phil
