    Reorder the songs, remove them (swipe an entry) or just select which song you want to hear next.
    OK, that's really awesome. I love it.

    I need to take a short break now though. Worked too much in the night the last weeks.
    As for speed and caching: v 1.5 seems to be considerably quicker than v 1.4, so my former request for caching is not important anymore. I have a collection of 150,000 songs, 20,000+ artists etc and the artist list comes very quicly. The 2 star US rating is unbelievable, he must have a very slow computer! I use a mac mini server and this is much quicker than even a higher spec'ed windows machine.

    On a NAS with a big collection loading the albums list can easily take 30min or longer.
    You need to cache or to do paging if you want to support these kind of devices.

    But come on. Then one shouldn't run on a NAS anymore.
    This will be a nightmare on any SqueezeBox Device as well, as SqueezePlay isn't caching as well (to my knowledge).

    This particular user says it takes 60secs to load the artist list for a 12.000 track collection. This is 3x the size of my collection and I wait less than a second and I'm only running on a SheevaPlug.
    As this is a huge mismatch for me it looks like he runs on a hopeless undersized NAS for his collection.

    Anyway - enough grumbling.
    As said caching was the next thing to do anyway.

    New playlist option

    Hi bluegaspode

    The new playlist option makes a HUGE difference to me, it works really well, especially with the context menu options which I wasn't expecting!

    What with this and IPeng I haven't picked up the controller for some time.

    SqueezePlay is caching and SqueezePlay is also paging.
    It's still a nightmare, I agree, but there are thousands of people out there who use exactly this.
    BTW, the Touch with a big library is a similar case.
    This particular user says it takes 60secs to load the artist list for a 12.000 track collection. This is 3x the size of my collection and I wait less than a second and I'm only running on a SheevaPlug.
    Now that's interesting. 12.000 Tracks is about what I have and I would regard this a small to medium library.
    My albums list takes about 10s to load in SqueezePlug. I agree 60s for artists (which is faster than albums) sounds too long for that.
    But there are people with >100.000 track collections out there. I know of people who run that kind of library from a ResdyNAS.
    As this is a huge mismatch for me it looks like he runs on a hopeless undersized NAS for his collection.
    ReadyNAS. ReadyNAS is hopelessly undersized but I bet it's the most widely used NAS for the Squeezebox.

    Good choice. I wonder when you will tackle the other big, big issue SqueezePlay IMHO has (and which makes me use it almost never due to complete inconvenience). The last one, btw., I think everything else is about taste, personal preferences and details.

    I'm not aware of big big issues ? What are you referring to ?

    Are you talking about caching album covers ?

    Or are you saying it also caches the menu contents ? I know it does paging but I thought it requested the menus from the server every time, at least that's how it looks like in my server logs. Or is this something new in 7.6 ?

    I'm not 100% sure whether this is on the server or client side but menus load much faster when you reload it than whenever you open it the first time.
    I thought someone said it's being cached for a certain time. Would have to have at the code.
