1446       collection when it's connected.

1450     * You can now elect to rescan specific folders. Right-click on a folder in
1451       the collection setup dialog to rescan just that folder. This will only
1452       work for folders that have previously been added to the collection, i.e.
1453       you cannot check a folder and immediately rescan it. This will never be
1454       recursive (as that defeats the point of scanning a specific folder!)
1455     * Non collection files with a cue sheet will now load their tracks as
1456       individual tracks in the playlist instead of as one big track with
1457       bookmark markers.

1477       in standard desktop services.

1483       message in the status bar.

1485     * Duplicate unique file identifiers are now indicated in debug output,
1486       along with the paths of the files, when found instead of being silently
1487       ignored. This can help discover multiple copies of the same file or
1488       files which incorrectly have the same MusicBrainz unique identifier.
1490   BUGFIXES:
1491     * Prevent custom sliders from allocating a lot of pixmap resources (xrestop)
1492     * Fix multiple busy indicators being shown in the Context View. (BR 208102)
1493     * Corruption of guid strings by passing them as a KUrl caused podcast episodes
1494       to be readded on each update. This issue has been solved.
1495       If you have episodes that appear twice, remove the channel and add it again.
1496       (BR 219516)

1509       from the file browser. (BR 217002)
1510     * Allow fetching of album covers in the unified view. (BR 220873)
1511     * Lyrics applet: Fixed scrollbar incorrectly displayed (and sometimes not
1512       at all) for long lyrics under KDE 4.4. (BR 222260)
1513     * Fixed bug in Photos applet that made it break with translated versions
1514       of Amarok. Patch by Bellegarde Cédric <gnumdk@gmail.com>. (BR 222566)

1533       the order inversion arrow on hover. (BR 209011)
1534     * The automatic character set detection for tags has been disabled; it
1535       caused too many problems with legitimate UTF-8 tags. It can be
1536       re-enabled from Settings->Collection. (Many BRs)
1537     * Dynamic mode is now automatically disabled when replacing the playlist.
1538       (BR 214759)

1566       (BR 218167)
1567     * Fixed relative links in wikipedia work. (BR 218512)
1568     * Fixed multilevel playlist sorting by time since last played so it sorts

1570     * Fixed crash with "Edit Track Details" dialog. (BR 217625)
1571     * Fixed a number of cases where markers such as "current track", "stop after 
1572       this track" and others would get shown in both group header and the first 
1573       track in the group. (BR 197842)
1574     * Fixed regression causing non default moodbar styles to not work.

1587     * Made "Last.fm Love" (and potentially other global actions avaiable for all

1764       during collection scanning. (BR 210201)

1792       have not changed, for extremely large speedups in some cases. For very
1793       flat collection trees, the difference is basically between a small
1794       incremental scan and a near full rescan.
1795     * Ask the user for confirmation before refetching lyrics and overwriting
1796       cached ones.

1806     * The GUI layout is now crash persistant. (BR 211509)
1807     * Ensure that ReplayGain float values are stored in the database with a

1809     * Fixed crashes with Icecast Directory script. (BR 206579)
1810     * Enabled C++ exceptions handling in Amarok. This fixes various crashes
1811       with liblastfm. (BR 212115)

1815       (BR 208468) (BR 211015)

1819       contained the default MusicBrainz UUID. Patch by Egbert König

1827     * The On Screen Display now uses a sane font size with all display
1828       resolutions. (BR 195186)
1829     * Fix rare regression where inaccessible subfolders (due to permissions)
1830       in the collection could not be picked up by an incremental scan when
1831       permissions were fixed and their mtime updated, requiring a full rescan.
1832     * When using a MySQL server with "Watch Folders For Changes" disabled,
1833       very long periods of idle Amarok could allow the server to close the
1834       local connection. This is now detected and should be worked around. 
1835     * Correctly set the lyrics applet's title when displaying HTML formatted lyrics
1836     * Track selection is now correctly preserved when using Dynamic Playlists.
1837       Patch by John Atkinson <john@fauxnetic.co.uk>. (BR 208349)

1871     * Fixed regression where the genre field in the Tag Dialog would show the

1874     * using a random sort order.
1875     * Fixed the Various Artist node sometimes being shown in the Collection

3070       add features such as cached albumcover downloads, searching and filtering
3071       to the individual services. Services can also be track providers, meaning

3634       to iTunes, Firefly Media Server etc. (BR 100513)
3635     * Dynamic Collection: improved support for songs on removable external
3636       harddisks, SMB and NFS shares
3638   CHANGES:
3639     * Skip tracks that failed to transfer to media devices instead of stopping
3640       transfer process. (BR 130008)

3642     * Lift size limit on pathnames and comments in collection databases not
3643       managed by MySQL. (BR 130585)
3644     * Generic media device plugin is improved. Users can configure supported
3645       filetypes and get more control over the location of songs and podcasts
3646       on disk (Patch by eute).
3647     * Move composer tag to its own database table.
3648     * Re-enable adding videos to iPods with recent libgpod-cvs. (BR 130117)

3650       streams.
3651     * Advanced Tag Features (ATF) deferred to 1.4.3: Public release delayed
3652       pending some bug fixes in both Amarok and a dependency. It will be
3653       automatically disabled the first time you run 1.4.2 if you had it enabled
3654       from 1.4.2-beta1. (It will still be available in subversion snapshots.)
3655     * Optionally finish transferring all queued tracks to media device after
3656       pressing disconnect button. (BR 129716)
3657     * It's now possible to edit scores and ratings for multiple tracks in
3658       TagDialog.
3659     * TagDialog won't make Amarok unresponsive while committing tags changes
3660       to files anymore.
3661     * Exact playtime as tooltip in statusbar. Patch by Markus Kaufhold
3662       <M.Kaufhold@gmx.de>. (BR 130463)
3663     * Suspend collection rescanning while organizing files. (BR 129885)
3664     * Always use metadata from original file for transcoded files transfered

3667       files are moved.
3668     * Tag Editing Dialog is now ATF-enabled.
3669     * In-line tag editing is now ATF-enabled.
3670     * Previously, using ATF with MP3 files would wipe out existing UFID frames
3671       from other applications. Now Amarok plays nicely and only touches its
3672       own UFID frame.
3673     * ATF no longer requires a restart to enable or disable it.
3674     * ATF read-only functions are always enabled if a UID is found in the
3675       file. Option in the configuration dialog now only controls whether new
3676       UIDs are written to new files.
3677     * ATF will now automatically run the rescan and clear the Playlist only on
3678       the first time it is enabled.  After that it will simply display an info
3679       reminding users that they may need a rescan if their library has changed
3680       since the last time it was enabled.
3682   BUGFIXES:

3688     * Double colons in the collection filter would lead to invalid queries.
3689       (BR 132551)
3690     * Handle changed semantics of MySQL 5.0.23+ (BR 132114)

3692       (BR 132355)

3694       Patch by Joe Rabinoff <rabinoff@post.harvard.edu>. (BR 128340)

3701       with Postgresql.

3708     * Correctly pass links containing parentheses to external browsers. Patch
3709       by Thomas Lindroth <tholi945@student.liu.se>. (BR 131307)
3710     * iPods would not show podcast descriptions. (BR 129824)
3711     * Carry over rounding increments to next larger unit for fuzzy time
3712       display. (BR 131383)

3724       fix problems with too many orphaned and stale items. (BR 126431)
3725     * Correct action of queueing current item in dynamic mode. (BR 130313)
3726     * Double clicking in the filebrowser will append to playlist. (BR 117465)
3727     * Fixed problems with last.fm streams containing spaces, e.g. "Hip Hop".
3728     * When generic media devices were specified manually, transferred files
3729       would not always get converted to VFAT-friendly names if they were on a
3730       VFAT filesystem.
3731     * When using ATF, tags in MP3 files would be written as ID3v2 only and
3732       existing ID3v1 tags would be stripped, which could lead to media devices
3733       and tagging libraries that were not ID3v2.4-aware to report that no tag
3734       existed.  Now both tags are written with identical data.
3735     * Correct handling of filenames with special characters. (BR 132243)

3779     * Inotify support. On kernels 2.6.13 and above with Inotify support
3780       compiled in, the collection will automatically be rescanned and
3781       updated as soon as a watched folder has changed.
3783   CHANGES:

3787       you want to maintain it, grab it from SVN and release on kde-apps.org.

3789       now always one. (BR 120044)

3797       it was causing crashes for many people.
3798     * Usability improvements for the Script Manager, including a tree view.
3799     * Use KMimeType for resolving file type for metadata acquisition before

3802     * Also copy non-local URLs to collection when dropped onto collection

3815     * Dynamic mode no longer skips to the next song if you press play (via
3816       dcop, for instance) while already playing a track. Instead it restarts
3817       the current one.
3818     * The Actions menu has been renamed the Engage menu. It's way cooler,
3819       right? I mean, Star Trek is really cool, right?
3820     * Multiple podcasts can be configured at once by selecting multiple channels
3821       or by configuring the children of a folder.

3825     * Make changes to the default dynamic playlists persistent.

3851     * xine engine would truncate the last seconds of a track, if no other
3852       track followed in the playlist.
3853     * Fixed AudioCD playback with xine-engine. Patch by Markus Kaufhold
3854       <M.Kaufhold@gmx.de>. (BR 127388)
3855     * If dynamic mode was turned on and then off, the previous random and
3856       repeat modes would be forgotten. (BR 123743)
3857     * Removing the current track through DCOP while editing a field of the
3858       track in the playlist would cause a crash. (BR 119152)
3859     * Make characters encoded with % (such as a forward slash, %2f) display

5037       Konqueror/Universal sidebar can show them when amaroK is not running.
5039   BUGFIXES:
5040     * escape '&' char in contextmenu entry (BR 101276)
5041     * Track is set as a number in the database, so shouldn't be added rounded

5050     * Images shown on OSD where incorrect for action notifications.
5051     * The handbook translations were not built when amaroK was installed from
5052       the tarball. I've written a new release script in Ruby, which can
5053       handle the new structure of kde-i18n. (BR 100498)
5054     * GStreamer-engine can now play vorbis radio streams properly, with
5055       full metadata support. (BR 89821)

5846 VERSION 0.5.1:
5847   added a Tip of the Day at startup to explain the user interface a bit
5848   added restarting of artsd on first program start to make sure it registers
5849     the new mcopclasses
5850   fixed possible compile error in viswidget.cpp
5851   amaroK uses much less CPU now than it used to. This was mainly achieved by
5852     using a new FFT-analyzer module, which I took from Noatuns "Winskin"-plugin,
5853     and modified slightly to my needs. Also some other optimizations were made,
5854     which improved the standby performance, when no song is playing. I'm still
5855     not satisfied with overall performance, tho, but it seems that most of the
5856     load is produced by the aRts code itself, so this will rather be difficult
5857     to improve.
5858   fixed crash when "next" or "previous" was pressed without a track
5859     loaded
5860   thanks to valgrind I was able to find and squish some serious bugs,
5861     most of which were related to pointers. to sum it up: pointers are evil.
5862     valgrind is great.
5863   lots of UI-changes in the main widget. uses a background pixmap now, a
5864     custom font and widget for the time-display, and generally looks better
5865   fixed issues with the liquid skin. unfortunately, there seems to be no way
5866     to display pushbuttons correctly with a black background under liquid. so,
5867     until I find a solution for that, the expandbutton widget doesn't look quite
5868     as cool as it used to. maybe I should ask mosfet about this..
5870 VERSION 0.50:
5871   renamed 0.15 to 0.50
5873 VERSION 0.15:
5874   playing streams now works! *yipeeee*
5875   fixed tons of bugs in aRts playing code. i think i got it right now.
5876   fixed loading and saving of playlists. can cope with all protocols now.
5877   fixed a bug in EffectWidget.cpp, that gave a compile error on some systems.
5878   Converting QString into std::string was not done correctly. Thanks to
5879     Whitehawk Stormchaser for that one :)
5880   changed project name to "amaroK" and built new project-file
5882 VERSION 0.14 (internal):
5883   implemented use of arts-software-mixing, in case hardware-mixing

5886   changed the direction of the volume-slider. maximum is now at the top
5887   added automatic saving of current playlist on exit
5888   added previous/next track
5889   added two radiobuttons in the playerwidget for toggling the
5890     playlist/equalizer on and off. admitted, the equalizer doesn't yet exist, so
5891     it's just a dummy button :P
5892   added popup-menu for the playerwidget. opens on
5893     right mouse button. this menu finally replaces the ugly menubar.
5894   added some icons (from noatun) for the player-buttons instead of text
5895   added pause function
5896   changed most names in the source to comply with the
5897     (unofficial?) KDE c++ coding standard (using the prefix "m_" for member
5898     attributes and so on). This was real slave-work :/
5899   cleaned up code in several classes
5900   fixed problem where subwidgets got keyboard focus and were drawn dark with
5901     the liquid style. switched off focus completely, since it's not needed for

5914   fixed flicker in analyzer widget
