    New feature "Automatically detect changes" in 7.6.2 is missing in 7.7.0

    In version 7.6.x a new very anticipated feature was introduced:
    Server Settings - Advanced - Performance:

    -Automatically detect changes
    "Squeezebox Server can watch your music folder and automatically detect changes. New and changed files should appear in your library within several minutes."

    In beta 7.7.0 this feature is missing. Does it mean it is discarded?

    Sorry, forgot to mention. I'm using the Linux Debian packages.
    The feature actually works very well in my setup.

    It's probably going to come back at some time, found this in the svn log:

    Bug: n/a
    Description: disable AutoRescan for all but SqueezeOS. It should be implemented in Media::Scan.

    I imagine the added complexities of 7.7's scanning queue either broke auto-rescan or made it difficult to re-implement.

    ....except that aforementioned change happened about three weeks before I
    even introduced the queueing :-P

    But yes: auto-rescan never really worked reliably, and adding the media
    scanner didn't help. We still hope to eventually implement it in the C
    part of the code.

    OK, it never actually worked. No surprises there.

    Not even on Linux - in your view? Just curious because it worked fine for me (and others with Linux).

    Would be nice for the scanning code to do a super quick, file and folder only import of the directory structure so you can view and play music within 30 seconds. Then as a background task it continues pulling in album artwork, artist, genres and all that fun stuff, that is basically a nice to have later.

    The large caches on hard disks these days would present this data so quickly to LMS it would be a major win in my opinion
