RK
22
23 <div class=section>
24
25 <p>PulseAudio is now supported, if the support library is available at
26 build time. It is the default for client applications, reflecting its
27 widespread use in desktop environments.</p>
28

2f575936
RK
40 <p><code>disorder-playrtp</code> now selects playback API using
41 a <code>--api</code> option. The old API-selection options remain
42 available but are deprecated and will be removed in the future.</p>
d9bc9ccd 43
2f575936
RK
44 <p>RTP playback can now transmit to multiple unicast destinations, added
45 and removed on demand. This is controlled by the new <code>rtp_mode</code>
46 option. The motivating use case is a bridged network with high- and
47 low-capacity components. However it is may also be useful in a routed
48 network without multicast routing support.</p>

52 <h3>GStreamer support</h3>
53
54 <div class=section>
55
56 <p>If it's detected at <tt>configure</tt> time, a new decoder
57 program <tt>disorder-gstdecode</tt> is built. It uses the GStreamer
58 library for audio decoding and sample-rate conversion, among other
59 features.
60
61 <p>The decoder has a number of options for controlling the sample-rate and
62 audio format conversion, allowing various tradeoffs between quality and
63 processor time. (High-quality conversion can consume more processor time
64 than decoding, so this is potentially useful on very a small device such as
65 a Raspberry Pi.</p>
66
67 <p>The GStreamer decoder can also use ReplayGain information stored in
68 audio files' metadata to adjust playback volume, so that tracks with very
69 wide dynamic range don't sound really quiet in comparison. This
70 information can be added using tools such as <tt>mp3gain</tt>,
71 <tt>vorbisgain</tt>, or <tt>metaflac</tt>. This is turned on by default if
72 you use the decoder; you can choose between per-album or per-track
73 settings, or turn it off entirely, using command-line options.</p>
74
75 <p>The GStreamer decoder is not used by default, but it can be enabled
76 easily enough by dropping something like the following into the server
77 configuration file:
78 <pre>
79 player
80 player *.flac execraw /usr/sbin/disorder-gstdecode -ralbum -f-8.0
81 player *.mp2 execraw /usr/sbin/disorder-gstdecode -ralbum -f-8.0
82 player *.mp3 execraw /usr/sbin/disorder-gstdecode -ralbum -f-8.0
83 player *.ogg execraw /usr/sbin/disorder-gstdecode -ralbum -f-8.0
84 player *.wav execraw /usr/sbin/disorder-gstdecode -ralbum -f-8.0

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

593 <p>Disobedience has been largely rewritten:</p>
594
595 <ul>
596
597 <li>All the tabs now use native GTK+ list/tree widgets, resulting in
598 greater speed in some cases and more consistency with other GTK+
599 applications.</li>
600
601 <li>You can now use type-ahead find in the choose tab. The initiation
602 of a search is delayed slightly to avoid lots of updates when you're
603 half way through entering search terms.</li>
604
605 <li>The choose tab now shows track lengths.</li>
606
607 <li>Many buttons are now more reliably made insensitive when they can't
608 be used.</li>

660 <h4>Event Scheduling</h4>
661
662<div class=section>
663
664 <p>It is now possible to schedule events to occur in the future.
665 Currently the supported actions are playing a specific track, and
666 changing a global preference (thus allowing e.g. random play to be
667 turned on or off). See the <tt>schedule-*</tt>
668 commands described in disorder(1).</p>

670</div>
671
672<h4>Random Track Choice</h4>
673
674<div class=section>
675
676 <p>This has been completely rewritten to support new features:</p>
677
678 <ul>
679
680 <li>tracks in the recently-played list or in the queue are no longer
681 eligible for random choice.</li>
682
683 <li>there is a new <tt>weight</tt> track preference allowing for
684 non-uniform track selection. See disorder(1) for details.</li>
685
686 <li>there is a new configuration item <tt>replay_min</tt> defining
687 the minimum time before a played track can be picked at random.
688 The default is 8 hours (which matches the earlier behaviour).</li>
689
690 <li>recently added tracks are biased up; see <tt>new_bias</tt> and
691 <tt>new_bias_age</tt> in disorder_config(5).</li>

697<h4>Web Interface</h4>
698
699<div class=section>
700
701 <p>This has been largely rewritten. The most immediate benefits are:</p>
702
703 <ul>
704
705 <li>the search page is integrated into the choose page, and
706 includes links to parent directories.</li>
707
708 <li>if you try to do something you have insufficient rights for,
709 instead of getting an error page or nothing happening, you are
710 redirected to the login page.</li>
711
712 </ul>
713
714 <p>Customizers should find their lives easier: the syntax is less onerous, it
715 is possible to define macros to avoid repetition, and the documentation is
716 less monolithic (see disorder.cgi(8) as a starting point).</p>

836 <p>Mac OS X and FreeBSD are somewhat supported. There is now a bash
837 script in <tt>scripts/setup</tt> which will automate the setup after

842<h3>Server</h3>
843
844<div class=section>
845
846 <p>Users are now stored in the database rather than a configuration
847 file.</p>
848
849 <p>The server now has a built-in list of stopwords and players, so
850 only additions to these need be mentioned in the configuration file.</p>
851
852 <p>The default inter-track gap is now 0s.</p>
853
854 <p>How sound is played is now controlled via the new <tt>api</tt>
855 configuration command. This also controls how the volume is set,
856 which now works with ALSA as well as OSS.</p>
857
858 <p>A bug in the MP3 decoder was fixed (also in 2.0.4).</p>

866 <p>The web interface now uses cookies to remember user identity, and
867 allows online registration of new users. Also it is no longer
868 necessary to manually specify the URL of the web interface (but you
869 can override it if you don't like the value it figures out).</p>
870
871 <p>It is possible to allow users to register via the web interface.</p>
872
873 <p>The web interface's browser support has been improved. It has
874 been tested with Firefox 2, Safari 3, Konqueror 3, Internet Explorer
875 7 and Opera 9.</p>

885 'deselect all tracks' option, mirroring 'select all tracks.</p>
