f71fc3ab 75 <p>Gapless play should be more reliable, and playback latency over RTP
6762ac8a 76 should be a bit lower. Note though that all the sound output code has

337
338 <p>Disobedience has been largely rewritten:</p>
339
340 <ul>
341
342 <li>All the tabs now use native GTK+ list/tree widgets, resulting in
343 greater speed in some cases and more consistency with other GTK+
344 applications.</li>
345
346 <li>You can now use type-ahead find in the choose tab. The initiation
347 of a search is delayed slightly to avoid lots of updates when you're
348 half way through entering search terms.</li>
349
350 <li>The choose tab now shows track lengths.</li>
351
352 <li>Many buttons are now more reliably made insensitive when they can't
353 be used.</li>

RK
354
355 <li>You can now play tracks off the recent tab.</li>

358
359 <p>Disobedience attempts to cope with servers from older versions, up to
360 a point, but this is not well tested and it's best to keep the server
361 fully up to date.</p>

405 <h4>Event Scheduling</h4>
406
407<div class=section>
408
409 <p>It is now possible to schedule events to occur in the future.
410 Currently the supported actions are playing a specific track, and
411 changing a global preference (thus allowing e.g. random play to be
412 turned on or off). See the <tt>schedule-*</tt>
413 commands described in disorder(1).</p>
414
415</div>
416
417<h4>Random Track Choice</h4>
418
419<div class=section>
420
421 <p>This has been completely rewritten to support new features:</p>
422
423 <ul>
424
425 <li>tracks in the recently-played list or in the queue are no longer
426 eligible for random choice.</li>
427
428 <li>there is a new <tt>weight</tt> track preference allowing for
429 non-uniform track selection. See disorder(1) for details.</li>
430
431 <li>there is a new configuration item <tt>replay_min</tt> defining
432 the minimum time before a played track can be picked at random.
433 The default is 8 hours (which matches the earlier behaviour).</li>
434
435 <li>recently added tracks are biased up; see <tt>new_bias</tt> and
436 <tt>new_bias_age</tt> in disorder_config(5).</li>
437
438 </ul>
439
440</div>
441
442<h4>Web Interface</h4>
443
444<div class=section>
445
446 <p>This has been largely rewritten. The most immediate benefits are:</p>
447
448 <ul>
449
450 <li>the search page is integrated into the choose page, and
451 includes links to parent directories.</li>
452
453 <li>if you try to do something you have insufficient rights for,
454 instead of getting an error page or nothing happening, you are
455 redirected to the login page.</li>
456
457 </ul>
458
459 <p>Customizers should find their lives easier: the syntax is less onerous, it
460 is possible to define macros to avoid repetition, and the documentation is
461 less monolithic (see disorder.cgi(8) as a starting point).</p>
462
2eee4b0c
RK
463 <p>Mail is now sent via the system sendmail program, though it remains
464 possible to use TCP to connect to an SMTP server. See <tt>sendmail</tt> and
