6762ac8a 141 should be a bit lower. Note though that all the sound output code has
f71fc3ab 142 been reorganized and in some cases completely rewritten, so it's possible

536 <p>The <tt>gap</tt> directive will no longer work. It could be
537 restored if there is real demand.</p>

539 <h4>Event Scheduling</h4>
540
541<div class=section>
542
543 <p>It is now possible to schedule events to occur in the future.
544 Currently the supported actions are playing a specific track, and
545 changing a global preference (thus allowing e.g. random play to be
546 turned on or off). See the <tt>schedule-*</tt>
547 commands described in disorder(1).</p>
548
549</div>
550
551<h4>Random Track Choice</h4>
552
553<div class=section>
554
555 <p>This has been completely rewritten to support new features:</p>
556
557 <ul>
558
559 <li>tracks in the recently-played list or in the queue are no longer
560 eligible for random choice.</li>
561
562 <li>there is a new <tt>weight</tt> track preference allowing for
563 non-uniform track selection. See disorder(1) for details.</li>
564
565 <li>there is a new configuration item <tt>replay_min</tt> defining
566 the minimum time before a played track can be picked at random.
567 The default is 8 hours (which matches the earlier behaviour).</li>
568
569 <li>recently added tracks are biased up; see <tt>new_bias</tt> and
570 <tt>new_bias_age</tt> in disorder_config(5).</li>
571
572 </ul>
573
574</div>
575
576<h4>Web Interface</h4>
577
578<div class=section>
579
580 <p>This has been largely rewritten. The most immediate benefits are:</p>
581
582 <ul>
583
584 <li>the search page is integrated into the choose page, and
585 includes links to parent directories.</li>
586
587 <li>if you try to do something you have insufficient rights for,
588 instead of getting an error page or nothing happening, you are
589 redirected to the login page.</li>
590
591 </ul>
592
593 <p>Customizers should find their lives easier: the syntax is less onerous, it
594 is possible to define macros to avoid repetition, and the documentation is
595 less monolithic (see disorder.cgi(8) as a starting point).</p>
596

597 <p>Mail is now sent via the system sendmail program, though it remains
598 possible to use TCP to connect to an SMTP server. See <tt>sendmail</tt> and
599 <tt>smtp_server</tt> in disorder_config(5).</p>

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

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

711 <h3>Platforms And Installation</h3>
712
713<div class=section>
714
715 <p>Mac OS X and FreeBSD are somewhat supported. There is now a bash
716 script in <tt>scripts/setup</tt> which will automate the setup after
717 <tt>make install</tt>.</p>
718
719</div>
720
721<h3>Server</h3>
722
723<div class=section>
724
725 <p>Users are now stored in the database rather than a configuration
726 file.</p>
727
728 <p>The server now has a built-in list of stopwords and players, so
729 only additions to these need be mentioned in the configuration file.</p>
730
731 <p>The default inter-track gap is now 0s.</p>
732
733 <p>How sound is played is now controlled via the new <tt>api</tt>
734 configuration command. This also controls how the volume is set,
735 which now works with ALSA as well as OSS.</p>
736
737 <p>A bug in the MP3 decoder was fixed (also in 2.0.4).</p>
738
739</div>
740
741<h3>Web Interface</h3>
742
743<div class=section>
744
745 <p>The web interface now uses cookies to remember user identity, and
746 allows online registration of new users. Also it is no longer
747 necessary to manually specify the URL of the web interface (but you
748 can override it if you don't like the value it figures out).</p>
749
750 <p>It is possible to allow users to register via the web interface.</p>
751
752 <p>The web interface's browser support has been improved. It has
753 been tested with Firefox 2, Safari 3, Konqueror 3, Internet Explorer
754 7 and Opera 9.</p>
755
756</div>
757
758<h3>Disobedience</h3>
759
760<div class=section>
761
762 <p>A bug which would cause a crash if you attempt to rearrange the
763 queue while no track was playing has been fixed. There is a new
764 'deselect all tracks' option, mirroring 'select all tracks.</p>
