    How to port and test applets for 7.4 ?

    Hi there,

    I recently wrote a small applet for headphone switching, testet it in SqueezePlay, moved it to a 7.3 controller and everything works nice

    Now I try it out on 7.4 (pushed it to the controller) and it isn't working anymore
    I still can see an entry on the main menu, but the submenus are not working anymore.

    I'm a bit helpless currently, can anyone answer the following questions:
    1) is there an overview of obvious changes, that have to be done to existing applets ?
    2) How would I test an applet currently, without uploading it to the controller all the time. SqueezePlay doesn't seem to exist in a 7.4 version.
    3) Can anyone help me with my current problem [edit: solved in the meantime]:

    In /var/log/messages I can see some messages:
    Code:
    Aug 28 22:36:18 squeezeplay: ERROR  squeezeplay.applets - AppletManager.lua:470 Error while loading applet Headphones:/usr/share/jive/jive/utils/log.lua:75: attempt to index upvalue 'log' (a nil value)
    If I look at the new applets I'm also aware that lines like
    Code:
    local log = require("jive.utils.log").logger("applets.screensavers")
    are not used anymore.

    Just to make sure I didn't make a mistake, I took the Wake-On-Lan-applet (http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.ph...zePlay_Applets) which worked very good with 7.3. Now under 7.4 it shows similar effects (top-level menuitems appear, but then errors start and I won't get into submenus).

    So - if anyone can tell me how this simple applet needs to be changed I'll be able to change my own as well.

    anyone for question 1+2 ?
    Did you know: SqueezePlayer will stream all your music to your Android device. Take your music everywhere!
    Remote Control + Streaming to your iPad? Squeezebox + iPad = SqueezePad
    Want to see a Weather Forecast on your Radio/Touch/Controller ? => why not try my Weather Forecast Applet
    Want to use the Headphones with your Controller ? => why not try my Headphone Switcher Applet

    Could you please open SVN for jive again and publish current SqueezPlay-Builds, now that the Touch + Radio are 'released'.

    I saw a squeezplay in erlands screenshots, which pretty much looks like a 7.4 version (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showpo...20&postcount=1), which I'm just not able to get a hand on.

    Plugin-/Applet-life is so complicated without it

    Yes, soon. We're heads down working on Radio at the moment so it's ready for release. Moving the private branch to be public will cause a little disruption for the team, so it needs to be done at a convenient time. We should be able to get a desktop build published, I'll see what can be arranged this week.

    Once Radio is ready to ship we should also have a little more time to respond to questions on the forums.
