Muutokset v1.8.0 Beta 3 - v1.10 Beta 1

  • Two-way synchronization between devices and the Songbird library
  • Automatic organization of downloaded and ripped files into an Artist/Album filesystem hierarchy.
  • The PlaylistCommandsBuilders interface has been deprecated. Add-on developers should use the new playlistcommands interface (documentation forthcoming -- see bug 23893).



Muutokset v1.4.2.1434 - v1.4.3

  • CD Rip Support (Windows only)
  • Songbird can now rip music from audio CDs to the main Songbird library.
  • Firmware Update for MSC (Windows only)
  • Songbird will be able to manage the firmware on selected MSC devices.
  • Purple Rain
  • Songbird has a new default feather.
  • Display panes are blank on a 1.2 -> 1.4.1 update ( bug 19334)
  • Clean install does not launch into EULA ( bug 19365)



Muutokset v1.2.0 - v1.4.2.1434

  • CD Rip
  • Songbird will not recognize USB CD drives plugged in while the application is running. Quit and restart Songbird to mount your CD drive inside the application. ( bug 18033)
  • Users must click within the CD Rip media view to activate the CD Rip-specific keyboard shortcuts. ( bug 18267)
  • CDs will occasionally not eject automatically after a successful rip when the auto-eject option is enabled. ( bug 18291)
  • Album artwork for some compilation CDs will not be fetched during the CD Rip process. Users can manually fetch artwork for the album once the ripped tracks are in the Songbird library. ( bug 18328)
  • The CD Rip node will be displayed for data-only CDs. ( bug 18349)
  • Users must select a track within the CD Rip media view to see the artwork associated with the album. ( bug 18331)
  • Will be fixed for 1.5.0 release.
  • Attempting to manually eject CD while rip is in progress cancels current track rip and moves to next track. ( bug 18418)

  • Inconsistent Music Folder naming based on Locale (18484)
  • Intermittently when downloading tracks, progress bars stop animating ( bug 18595)
  • Mac only: The new feather (Purple Rain) will display with some artifacts from the old feather (Gonzo) if 1.4.1 is installed directly on top of 1.2 instead of using the in-product updating mechanism. To fix this, go to the View menu, choose Feathers, and choose Purple Rain.

  • MSC (Mass Storage Class) Device Support – Sync tracks (and playlists on compatible devices) to MSC devices. (Windows only, requires the MSC add-on)
  • CD Rip Support – Pretty self-explanatory, right? Lookup metadata from Gracenote, and rip CDs to Flac or Ogg (Windows only, requires the CD Rip add-on)

Muutokset v1.4 Beta 2 - v1.4 Beta 3

  • bug fixes



Muutokset v1.2 Beta 2 - v1.2.0

  • NEW FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS
  • Automatically Organize Library Files
  • Songbird can now automatically organize the files that are contained in your library. Once enabled, it will consolidate your media in one location. You can customize the structure of the folder and file names based on metadata contained in every track.
  • 2-Way iTunes Import/Export
  • If you’re using iTunes Music Store to purchase content, you can now automatically expose iTunes library tracks and playlists into Songbird. You can also export tracks and playlists added to Songbird back into iTunes, so that they can easily be synced to your iPhone or iPod touch.
  • Last.fm Radio
  • Last.fm Radio supports artist, tag, and user stations, mapping station links on the Last.fm website to play internally in Songbird. It includes the Radio Directory allowing you to conveniently browse and explore the tag and artist relationships on Last.fm. Additionally, the Radio directory includes quick links for playing stations based on your Last.fm library, your Songbird library, and friends/neighbors’ libraries.
  • 10-band Equalizer
  • Now you can tweak the frequency response of the audio playback to match your room’s acoustics or your personal preferences.



Muutokset v1.1.1 - v1.1.2

  • BUGS FIXED IN THIS UPDATE
  • Volume changes between tracks. The problem documented in bug 15751 caused Songbird to change playback volume between tracks with different sample rates.
  • Crash on exit in Windows. Songbird will no longer crash on exit bug 15642. This was an intermittent problem that did not affect all Songbird users on Windows.
  • Media deleted from iPod during Songbird update. The bug that caused media to be deleted from iTunes-managed iPods during a Songbird update was fixed with an add-on update ( bug 15640). This Songbird update has an updated add-on block list to ensure that the buggy version of the add-on cannot be loaded by the application ( bug 15788).

Muutokset v1.0.0.860 - v1.1.1

  • On Demand Fetching of Album Artwork
  • Songbird can now fetch album artwork from the web at your command. Simply select or right-click a track and choose "Get Album Artwork". You can also select your preferred source of artwork. By default, Songbird will retrieve album art from Last.fm but you can install from other sources such as amazon.com via an add-on.
  • MTP Device Support
  • We fixed many bugs affecting MTP devices on Windows. We've also added the ability to synch authorized Windows Media DRM'ed content to your MTP device. To see if your MTP device is supported, or to report your findings, visit our MTP Device Support page.
  • Watch Folders
  • You can choose to watch a folder hierarchy for changes and the content will auto-magically be imported in your library. If a file is removed from the watched folder, the corresponding track will be deleted from your Library.
  • Better Sorting
  • Library sorting supports unicode collation and better handling of leading definite and indefinite articles such as "The" and "a".
  • Replay Gain Support (Normalization)
  • If a track's metadata contains replay gain (including iTunes-specific) information, Songbird will adjust the playback gain appropriately.
  • Reduced Installer Packages
  • We've reduced the installer package size on Mac and Linux by about 45% on each of those platforms.
  • Improved Memory Usage/Performance
  • As part of our project to bring down memory usage in Songbird, we've re-tuned the database to be less greedy with your system's memory. On some memory starved systems, this should actually increase performance, but most users shouldn't notice any difference in searching, sorting, scrolling, filtering, or smart playlists. Users with very large libraries (>100,000 tracks) will see the biggest memory use improvements. If you do find things are more sluggish than you remember, please see Tuning Songbird Memory Usage and try adjusting the page cache size upwards. If you find any problems in these areas, please file a Bugzilla issue against Songbird.
  • 7digital MP3 Store Add-on (Beta)
  • We've partnered with 7digital to bring you the highest quality MP3s (320kbps). You can easily search, purchase, organize and get recommendations directly into Songbird. Just click on the 7digital Music Store node in your Songbird service pane. NOTE: The UK store is fully stocked, but the US and other European stores are still continuing to populate a complete catalog of music. Please file any bugs, issues or suggestions for the 7digital MP3 store specifically in our Bugzilla database.

Muutokset v0.7.0 RC 2 - v0.7.0 RC 3

  • New UI:
  • The new UI includes significant visual and functional changes such as:
  • A new dedicated tab that contains all of your media content
  • Ability to show/hide the service pane when viewing webpages (it's automatically hidden when viewing web content, but a button will allow you to toggle show/hide)
  • Ability to choose where the player controls live, the top or bottom of the window, based on user preference (right click on the player control pane to change its location or on some platforms View menu -> Player Controls).
  • New look and feel for the Mini Player
  • Faster Media Scan:
  • Scanning for media on your local drive is significantly faster.
  • First Run Wizard:
  • The wizard will walk you through EULA, media scanning, and installing recommended add-ons when launching the application for the first time. You'll need to create a new profile to be presented with the wizard (since you will not see it if upgrading).
  • Drag & Drop:
  • The drag and drop experience in the application has been greatly improved.
  • It now supports visual feedback to show you how many items you are dragging.
  • Smart Playlists:
  • We now have smart playlist support which not only allows you to create your own customized playlists, but also provide defaults for:
  • Highest Rated
  • Most Played
  • Recently Added
  • Recently Played
  • Album Art
  • Songbird can now read, write and display album artwork. There's a new Album Art Display Pane in the bottom of the Service Pane that shows the artworkassociated with currently playing track. In the Metadata Editor, you can add or remove artwork to a track - changes will be saved to the file(s) you edit.

  • 0.5 -> 0.5.1 -> 0.6 complete upgrade causes Media Core Error failure upon 0.6 launch (10307)
  • taglib not packaged properly (10338)



Muutokset v0.5 - v0.6

  • We have implemented jemalloc as our memory allocator for XULRunner on windows and linux. On these platforms we’ve been noticing Songbird’s memory footprint has reduced between 15-20%.
  • There is a new metadata editor! To check it out select a track and choose cmd/ctrl+e.
  • We now write metadata back to the file.
  • For Windows, the latest MTP add-on has been revved and we’re supporting more devices.
  • For all OS platforms, the iPod add-on has been completely rewritten to support our new device API
  • Major performance improvements in the library when scrolling, filtering and importing (we now support much larger libraries too.)
  • For Mac, the latest Quicktime add-ons for ppc and intel greatly improve playback performance for local MP3 and M4A files (no more latency issues before playback begins.)
  • We have added a survey to Help Make Songbird Better in this release. We will use your feedback to improve future versions of the Bird!
  • KNOWN BUGS/ISSUES
  • Attention Extension and Webpage API Authors:
  • sbINumberPropertyInfo (and createNumberProperty() for you Webpage API developers) was not originally intended to support floating point values. Due to tighter number format validation, you will get exceptions/errors if you try to set a number property to be a floating point value. For our next release, we intend on being able to support floating point values, but this is not yet available for 0.6. For workarounds you can treat them as regular string properties, and parseFloat() them to floating point values as needed. This is being tracked as Bug 9914.
