RK
44 <p>The &ldquo;Manage users&rdquo; option is now more reliably greyed out if
45 it will not work. This depends on a server change too, so it may still be
46 wrong if a new Disobedience is used against an old server.</p>

56 in <tt>/etc/default/disorder</tt> to turn this off or to control how long

541 restored if there is real demand.</p>

543 <h4>Event Scheduling</h4>
544
545<div class=section>
546
547 <p>It is now possible to schedule events to occur in the future.
548 Currently the supported actions are playing a specific track, and
549 changing a global preference (thus allowing e.g. random play to be
550 turned on or off). See the <tt>schedule-*</tt>
551 commands described in disorder(1).</p>
552
553</div>
554
555<h4>Random Track Choice</h4>
556
557<div class=section>
558
559 <p>This has been completely rewritten to support new features:</p>
560
561 <ul>
562
563 <li>tracks in the recently-played list or in the queue are no longer
564 eligible for random choice.</li>
565
566 <li>there is a new <tt>weight</tt> track preference allowing for
567 non-uniform track selection. See disorder(1) for details.</li>
568
569 <li>there is a new configuration item <tt>replay_min</tt> defining
570 the minimum time before a played track can be picked at random.
571 The default is 8 hours (which matches the earlier behaviour).</li>
572
573 <li>recently added tracks are biased up; see <tt>new_bias</tt> and
574 <tt>new_bias_age</tt> in disorder_config(5).</li>
575
576 </ul>
577
578</div>
579
580<h4>Web Interface</h4>
581
582<div class=section>
583
584 <p>This has been largely rewritten. The most immediate benefits are:</p>
585
586 <ul>
587
588 <li>the search page is integrated into the choose page, and
589 includes links to parent directories.</li>
590
591 <li>if you try to do something you have insufficient rights for,
592 instead of getting an error page or nothing happening, you are
593 redirected to the login page.</li>
594
595 </ul>
596
597 <p>Customizers should find their lives easier: the syntax is less onerous, it
598 is possible to define macros to avoid repetition, and the documentation is
599 less monolithic (see disorder.cgi(8) as a starting point).</p>

601 <p>Mail is now sent via the system sendmail program, though it remains
602 possible to use TCP to connect to an SMTP server. See <tt>sendmail</tt> and

605 <p>The web interface is now installed automatically. If you don't want it,
606 use <tt>./configure --without-cgi</tt>. If you want it in a non-default
607 location, or no location for it is detected, set <tt>cgidir</tt>
608 and <tt>httpdir</tt> on the <tt>./configure</tt> command line.</p>

618 <p>There is now a new user management window. From here you can add and
619 remove users or modify their settings.</p>

715 <h3>Platforms And Installation</h3>
716
717<div class=section>
718
719 <p>Mac OS X and FreeBSD are somewhat supported. There is now a bash
720 script in <tt>scripts/setup</tt> which will automate the setup after
721 <tt>make install</tt>.</p>
722
723</div>
724
725<h3>Server</h3>
726
727<div class=section>
728
729 <p>Users are now stored in the database rather than a configuration
730 file.</p>
731
732 <p>The server now has a built-in list of stopwords and players, so
733 only additions to these need be mentioned in the configuration file.</p>
734
735 <p>The default inter-track gap is now 0s.</p>
736
737 <p>How sound is played is now controlled via the new <tt>api</tt>
738 configuration command. This also controls how the volume is set,
739 which now works with ALSA as well as OSS.</p>
740
741 <p>A bug in the MP3 decoder was fixed (also in 2.0.4).</p>
742
743</div>
744
745<h3>Web Interface</h3>
746
747<div class=section>
748
749 <p>The web interface now uses cookies to remember user identity, and
750 allows online registration of new users. Also it is no longer
751 necessary to manually specify the URL of the web interface (but you
752 can override it if you don't like the value it figures out).</p>
753
754 <p>It is possible to allow users to register via the web interface.</p>
755
756 <p>The web interface's browser support has been improved. It has
757 been tested with Firefox 2, Safari 3, Konqueror 3, Internet Explorer
758 7 and Opera 9.</p>
759
760</div>
761
762<h3>Disobedience</h3>
763
764<div class=section>
765
766 <p>A bug which would cause a crash if you attempt to rearrange the
767 queue while no track was playing has been fixed. There is a new
768 'deselect all tracks' option, mirroring 'select all tracks.</p>
