Posted on byThe last month has been completely insane. We've been busy fixing bugs and not-quite-finished features like there's no tomorrow. Our Subversion repository has seen more than 70 commits (those are generally changes to Mixxx's code) in the last month, and we've still got a few things to finish before the beta.
Some cool stuff that's been done in the last month though is:
- Multithreaded library scanning . Mixxx will scan your library in the background. Unfortunately, the actual library saving/loading part is slightly broken at the moment and I don't know if that will get fixed before the beta. (It just rescans your library every time, which is semi-annoying, but you always cancel it and use "Browse" mode.)
- Automated (opt-in) crash reporting . We've added an exciting under-the-hood feature that allows us to gather crash reports automatically. This is strictly opt-in and so you're asked on your first run whether you'd like to help us out by enabling it or not.
- The play queue works more or less now. This is a good example of the kind of dangling unfinished features we've been trying to get working before the beta.
- Speed optimization
- A few tweaks to the vinyl control in order to make it a little easier to use.
I've written a Vinyl Control page on our wiki which should hopefully answer some questions people have about it.
