QtMPC 0.3.1 released!

The last post about the release of version 0.3, “sb” made a comment containing some suggestions. Obviously we take the few users we have very serious and started improving right away… ;)

So here’s the latest release: 0.3.1

It’s basically a bugfix release, therefore it’s not 0.4, but contains some rather nice GUI changes too.

So what has changed?

  • Improvements to the GUI to make it stop resizing when a cover is loaded
  • Restyled the playback buttons using new icons from the Oxygen project and stylesheets
  • Use the very same playback icons in the tray menu too
  • When pressing “enter” while typing a keyword in the music library, start searching. (no longer needed to actually push the “search” button…)

  1. Gee, thanks for mentioning me :) I feel, well, useful, even though I can’t program.

    Anyways, for those who didn’t notice, the download link is (almost as always):
    http://files.lowblog.nl/qtmpc/QtMPC-0.3.1.tar.bz2 ;)

    As for the bugs, I think I found something:
    *When the option “Show in system tray” is off, the only way to close QtMPC is to chose File>Quit from the menu. The close button on the window decoration does not work at all. It happens both on KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.0.0. Gnome wasn’t tested as I don’t use it.

    However, the close button works when the system tray option is on, resulting in hiding the app in the tray, which is good :)

    Apart from that, everything seems fine and smooth, but if I find something, I’ll let you know.

  2. That’s splendid. So maybe in the future I should just check out the svn instead of posting descriptions of bugs that would have already been fixed.

  3. That’s good to hear.

    speaking of SVN, I’ve got a problem with checking out QtMPC repository, because all the time I get the response:

    svn: REPORT request failed on ‘/svn/!svn/vcc/default’
    svn: REPORT from ‘/svn/!svn/vcc/default’: 400 Bad Request (http://qtmpc.lowblog.nl)

    I never had such a problem with other SVN repositories, but still the problem may be on my side (or, more precisely, on my ISP’s site)

    I hope that there is a workaround so I will be able to checkout your svn.

  4. I use version 1.4.4 (latest in Ubuntu Gutsy repositories). While looking at the current 1.4.6 svn’s changelog it doesn’t seem like there was a change that would affect my situation (but I may be wrong, I’m not an expert). So I believe that the fault is connected to my internet connection. So I’d better stick to downloading stable packed releases

    “subversion version” sounds funny ;)

  5. Ok, I think I know what my problem is about. Unfortunately the problem lies in the connection between my and your svn servers. It seems that the connection is dropped by a proxy, located between me and the server, which blocks REPORT requests or something.
    There appears to be a workaround: using https connection for handling such svn. I tested it but trac doesn’t let me do it this way.
    Long story short: I’m stuck and I won’t be able to get the latest revisions for testing. Still, I’ll be happy to try every new bzipped release you’ll publish.

  6. Ah, that’s too bad… In the future we might consider generating daily snapshots but at the moment there’s no real point in doing so since the svn is accessible by most people. Except you unfortunately… ;)
