RadioDJ v.1.6.5.1 Released!
« on: November 02, 2013, 02:47:30 PM »
Changes List:

- Improved directory import speed. Faster checking for already imported tracks added [NEW];
- Tracks that are skipped from import in directory import will be added to the logs [NEW];
- Improved main track change speed and memory usage [NEW];
- Added clear search text button [NEW];
- Implemented category/subcategory/genre list refresh when adding/deleting them [NEW];
- Implemented category for albums/artists/years that will be populated by track album data. [NEW];
- Implemented active rotation save when changing it using events [NEW];
- Added new event action "Seconds to Wait"[NEW];
- Added the option to specify a fade in/out duration for input [NEW];
- Improved MIDI plugin code;
- Fixed bug which muted the input when opening the Options window;

The database wasn't changed at all, so to update from the previous (1.6.5.0) version it's enough to replace the files.

QUICK UPDATE METHODS:

METHOD 1

1. Replace all your plugins (.dll files) with the new ones
2. Replace RadioDJ.exe with the new one
3. Replace PluginInterface.dll with the new one

METHOD 2

1. Unzip the new version somewhere on your HDD.
2. Delete from the new package the settings files (they are named like settings_XXXXX.xml).
3. Copy all files from the new package over your old files in order to overwrite them.

ALTERNATE METHOD 3

1. Replace all the files with the new ones.
2. Customize the settings of the program/plugins.

NOTE: the language files have been modified in order to add the new event action, so you should replace them also with the latest ones.

Thanks Marius,


What is the best way to upgrade from v.1.6.4.8 to this one?

@dennus, since that version, a database change has occurred, so you'll need to update the database first.
Please check the 1.6.4.9 update method: http://www.radiodj.ro/community/index.php?topic=3957.0

And please, don't stick with older versions, because at some point it will be very hard to update it.

@KingsbridgeRadio, that's not a good sign...  :huh:

I understand.
The problem is that updating a LIVE station it can be a bit troublesome every two weeks. :-(

So first I go from 1.6.4.8 to 1.6.4.9
then to 1.6.5.0 ??  and then to 1.6.5.1


Or can I skip from 1.6.4.8 to 1.6.49 and directly go to 1.6.5.1 ?

The update process takes less than 5 minutes. However, you are free to do what you consider that is better for your station.

You should only update the database, and then use the files from the 1.6.5.1. But i would wait 2-3 days to see if the problem KingsbridgeRadio reported will be confirmed by other users too.

I agree, but if something goes wrong and the database is messed up?!??
I have learned to live with the rule "if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it".
But I agree with you about the reason why you need to upgrade.

Where can I find 1.6.4.9?   
On the downloads page it is gone?

@dennus: You don't need that version. You apply the update following the instructions from that topic, but you will use the files from this version.
Do a dabatase backup first!

@ThP: use the language files from this release.

Can anyone else confirm this? I'm thinking about skipping this update because I can't afford this issue since we are a regional FM station.
Radio is one of the best things that happened to the world.
