As a Christmas present for all the Windows users out in the world that want to run QtMPC (Hi dad!) I have created a nice .msi file so you do not have to install the whole Qt toolkit and build it yourself. It was a bitch to get SVG support but everything works now!
Grab the msi file for version 0.4.1 here.
So now there is absolutely no reason not to use QtMPC when you are running windows!
I have created a new component in the trac so problems with the installer can be reported.
So we got a request for a dir view in QtMPC. We already had it on the todo-list since January 2008. So it was about time I got myself to write the actual code. The timing could not be much better since Sander just finished the new design so adding a new tab for the Dir View was a piece of cake.
The code is (like always) available in svn. Ready for you to test!
Right now drag/drop does not yet work in the dir view. Also no searching. No custom sorting. So a lot can still be done. But the basics are working! So enjoy playing directories on Christmas.
I’ve been working on improving the layout/design of QtMPC and currently I’m quite satisfied with the result. Basically we’ve moved to a more Amarok style look, with a tabbed dialog at the left which we’ll use to display context information about the song being played (currently only an album cover), the music library and in the future we plan to add a directory view.
It’s in the current source code, so grab a fresh check out and please give feedback if you find something that could be improved.
