did the upgrade and yes 30 secs is about the normal. Had to redo some of the now playing stuff but simple to do after up and running. Wondering why the autoupdate did not do this for me? Marius is it due to being a whole new version or am I missing something?

 :ok:  METHOD 2.  Thank you Marius for the Priority and Play Count resets by subcategory and genres although it will take some getting use to the NEW LOOK  :bash:  of the Tracks Manager.  About 2 minute prep time with ZER0 downtime.

Thank you so much for the new release, install took only a few seconds.  I was worried at first, thinking the options on the track manager for moving around multiple selected tracks was gone, until I adjusted my eyes and found them under the menus at the top  :cool:

 ;D   :cool:  Just noticed the NEW entry in the Directory Import.  A new check box that ALLOW DUPLICATES.  I have not tried it yet, so I'm not quite sure what it will do, but one can hope this will now let you put the same song in different categories.  If that's true, Then RADIODJ is in a whole new league.   ;D  And you didn't even list that in your Change List.

Without bitching, I preferred the old version of the music manager.
I liked all the buttons on the side!  :'(

otherwise the 1.8.0.0 version works correctly since this morning.

Marius thank you!

Post by: rodger212 on April 27, 2015, 01:15:51 AM
method 2 worked fine :)
thanks Marius!!
my first upgrade :) love the new tracks manager layout! (but I hardly had a chance to get used to the old flavour)
is there any further info on the "allow duplicates" in the import database settings?
I "think" this could be HUGE for me :)
again thanks so much Marius
the fact that there are people that do things for others, ahead of becoming rich, sort of renews my hope for the future :)
and the thriving community of lovely people
makes me smile a little inside :)

Here is further info: It simply skips checking if the file name (not full path) is already present in database. IMHO, that check is strange and may have undesired side effects in some cases.
