    For me the benefit would mostly be the better treatment of artists. Nothing pressing, though. Perfectly willing to wait. I am very happy with Daphile as it is, already.

    Can you explain about the player control application and the file manager tool?

    Faster scanning (very much with larger collections and enough memory),
    faster web UI browsing, faster Browse Music Folder, some new features
    like Browse by Album Artist, Browse Random Albums, return of Browse
    Music Folder while scanning, browse folders without importing them into
    the database...

    The best LMS ever ;-)

    Sounded so tempting that I had to try. The update to Daphile went pretty smoothly. There seemed to be some really good improvements. Excellent work, thanks Michael! I didn't notice any problems on quick tests. However I could not find the "Browse Random Albums" feature. I used the latest nightly build (7.9.0 - 1410966819).

    Below are the download links and instructions to use this pre-release version of Daphile.

    If you have full installation of Daphile, you can upgrade to the pre-release version as follows:
    • go to http://daphile/cgi-bin/Devel on your Daphile PC
    • copy the following link text (either x86_64 or i486 version) to input field besides the "Install" button
      http://www.daphile.com/tmp.CXGION7npB/daphile-14.09-b180642-i486.iso
      http://www.daphile.com/tmp.CXGION7npB/daphile-14.09-b180642-x86_64.iso
    • press "Install"
    • reboot

    This version has the ssh server, VT2 console login and root password enabled ("zaq" without hyphens).

    "Player control application on local UI (optional)" means that you can have jivelite enabled (disabled by default) on the local console. This enables the real stand-alone operations (excluding the settings management).

    "File manager" tool in web interface enables to copy/move/organize files and directories with web browser. Many operations are faster than with the NAS access, because all the operations are done internally. "File manager" also enable simple drag-and-drop support to copy files (not directories) from the control PC to Daphile's drive (eg. the wallpaper for the jivelite).

    It's disabled by default. You'll have to enable it in
    Settings/Player/Additional Browse Modes.

    Thank you Michael and kipeta!

    I have installed the Daphile pre-release with LMS 7.9 - and its looking great so far. I do love the compilations view - nice one!

    Kipeta, is there anything particular you would like me to test/try?

    I'm especially interested if there is something that does not work in the Daphile's web UI but works fine in the standard LMS web UI at port 9000. And of course all the other Daphile related bug reports and feedback are warmly welcomed. I would prefer the feedback through the contact form at www.daphile.com.

    Oh, you're using a customized web skin, don't you? What kind of
    customization did you do to the skin templates? There have been a few
    optimizations to them...

    very random album browsing

    ok i have an issue with the random album browsing....

    When I click on a displayed album a different album plays! So I guess that is very random

    For example:
    I select Browse Random Albums
    A number of albums are displayed, maybe one of them is U2 Songs of Innocence
    I click the album art it to play/select that album
    But Jamiroquai - Travelling Without Moving will play....for example

    PS: If I click the "Play" button or other buttons for that album the correct one WILL play, but when I click the actual album art (or cover art) then a different album is selected.
