I'm so happy Mixxx is actively being developed. I've been trying out 2.2.0 but haven't used it live yet because of a really tiny issue:

It looks like that songs selected in the library don't cause histories/crates to become bold faced if they are in the same thing. I'd sorely miss this feature as I really need it if I can't think of a next song; that way I can see where in my histories it appears and what I played after then.
I'm running Mixxx on a MacBook Air Mid 2012 on the newest macOS.

Other than that, again, amazing work.



Great work on 2.2.2! I've tested it a bit today, however the quoted problem still doesn't seem to be fixed. If I select a song in the library, the playlists/crates that it is in are not shown in bold. I'll have to downgrade to 2.1.8 again :/

All crates that contain all of the selected tracks should be highlighted. I agree that highlighting all creates that contain at least one of the selected tracks might be even more appropriate. Did this behavior change from 2.1 to 2.2?? But for a single, selected track this shouldn't matter. Otherwise we have an issue on macOS.

But I don't remember that we ever had such feature for playlists? History = playlists, i.e. no highlighting.

I can't remember what version of Mixxx is currently on my main laptop but I know that for definite on that version, songs are highlights in playlists and history as well as crates. I don't know if this has changed in a later version - I'll check next time I'm by my laptop what version I'm running.

Oh, indeed, the code is still in place! But somehow inactive. I will report back what's going on here.

On Fedora I get the highlighting for playlists, I simply didn't use it:

What's wrong with macOS then? Does the highlighting not work neither for crates nor for playlists? Then please file a bug, this is odd!

Unfortunately I'm not able to verify or fix it. Apple does not provide any support for cross-platform development.

First fix for 2.2.3 to get rid of some inconsistencies that confused me (see above) when selecting multiple tracks at once:

https://github.com/mixxxdj/mixxx/pull/2242

Highlighting of crates and playlists is only supported for single selected tracks.

my ubuntu upgaded to 2.2.2 and mixxx hangs at the loading screen. Only rebooting can kill the process. I'll downgrade for now

Hi, thanks for the new version. I'd like to upgrade to 2.2.2 from 2.2.1 is there any way without uninstalling the old version and installing the new one (on windows)? how do I save crates/playlists?

Hello yann360.

The installer uninstalls the previous version and installs the new one. The settings and library are kept, because they are on a different folder (user folder), so you don't need to worry about your crates and playlists, because they will be there after the re-installation.
