21 <h3>PulseAudio support</h3>
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
29 <p>Volume settings is not currently supported when PulseAudio is in
30 use.</p>

62 without arguments to clear the lists, as per the documentation.</li>

80
81 <div class=section>
82
83 <p>The server will now automatically initiate a rescan when a filesystem is
8488cf7d
RK
84 mounted or unmounted. (Use the <tt>mount_rescan</tt> option if you want to
85 suppress this behavior.)</p>
5bb003c8
RK
86
87 <p>The server takes care not to hold audio files open unnecessarily, so
88 that devices can be unmounted even if tracks from them are currently being
89 buffered.</p>

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

105
106 <p>A <tt>.desktop</tt> file is now shipped, making Disobedience visible as
107 an application in freedesktop.org-compliant systems.</p>

115 <p>The Debian package now includes a cronjob that backs up the database
116 daily. See <tt>/etc/cron.d/disorder</tt>. You can put settings
117 in <tt>/etc/default/disorder</tt> to turn this off or to control how long
118 the backups are kept for.</p>
119
120 <p>The <tt>disorder-dump -r</tt> option was broken.</p>

f71fc3ab 207 <p>Gapless play should be more reliable, and playback latency over RTP
6762ac8a 208 should be a bit lower. Note though that all the sound output code has
f71fc3ab 209 been reorganized and in some cases completely rewritten, so it's possible

536
537 <div class=section>
538
539 <p>Disobedience has been largely rewritten:</p>
540
541 <ul>
542
543 <li>All the tabs now use native GTK+ list/tree widgets, resulting in
544 greater speed in some cases and more consistency with other GTK+
545 applications.</li>
546
547 <li>You can now use type-ahead find in the choose tab. The initiation
548 of a search is delayed slightly to avoid lots of updates when you're
549 half way through entering search terms.</li>
550
551 <li>The choose tab now shows track lengths.</li>
552
553 <li>Many buttons are now more reliably made insensitive when they can't
554 be used.</li>
30f2f8c9
RK
555
556 <li>You can now play tracks off the recent tab.</li>

559
560 <p>Disobedience attempts to cope with servers from older versions, up to
561 a point, but this is not well tested and it's best to keep the server
562 fully up to date.</p>

600
601<div class=section>
602
603 <p>The <tt>gap</tt> directive will no longer work. It could be
604 restored if there is real demand.</p>
605
606 <h4>Event Scheduling</h4>
607
608<div class=section>
609
610 <p>It is now possible to schedule events to occur in the future.
611 Currently the supported actions are playing a specific track, and
612 changing a global preference (thus allowing e.g. random play to be
613 turned on or off). See the <tt>schedule-*</tt>
614 commands described in disorder(1).</p>
615
616</div>
617
618<h4>Random Track Choice</h4>
619
620<div class=section>
621
622 <p>This has been completely rewritten to support new features:</p>
623
624 <ul>
625
626 <li>tracks in the recently-played list or in the queue are no longer
627 eligible for random choice.</li>
628
629 <li>there is a new <tt>weight</tt> track preference allowing for
630 non-uniform track selection. See disorder(1) for details.</li>
631
632 <li>there is a new configuration item <tt>replay_min</tt> defining
633 the minimum time before a played track can be picked at random.
634 The default is 8 hours (which matches the earlier behaviour).</li>
635
636 <li>recently added tracks are biased up; see <tt>new_bias</tt> and
637 <tt>new_bias_age</tt> in disorder_config(5).</li>
638
639 </ul>
640
641</div>
642
643<h4>Web Interface</h4>
644
645<div class=section>
646
647 <p>This has been largely rewritten. The most immediate benefits are:</p>
648
649 <ul>
650
651 <li>the search page is integrated into the choose page, and
652 includes links to parent directories.</li>
653
654 <li>if you try to do something you have insufficient rights for,
655 instead of getting an error page or nothing happening, you are
656 redirected to the login page.</li>
657
658 </ul>
659
660 <p>Customizers should find their lives easier: the syntax is less onerous, it
661 is possible to define macros to avoid repetition, and the documentation is
662 less monolithic (see disorder.cgi(8) as a starting point).</p>

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

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

778 <h3>Platforms And Installation</h3>
779
780<div class=section>
781
782 <p>Mac OS X and FreeBSD are somewhat supported. There is now a bash
783 script in <tt>scripts/setup</tt> which will automate the setup after
784 <tt>make install</tt>.</p>
785
786</div>
787
788<h3>Server</h3>
789
790<div class=section>
791
792 <p>Users are now stored in the database rather than a configuration
793 file.</p>
794
795 <p>The server now has a built-in list of stopwords and players, so
796 only additions to these need be mentioned in the configuration file.</p>
797
798 <p>The default inter-track gap is now 0s.</p>
799
800 <p>How sound is played is now controlled via the new <tt>api</tt>
801 configuration command. This also controls how the volume is set,
802 which now works with ALSA as well as OSS.</p>
803
804 <p>A bug in the MP3 decoder was fixed (also in 2.0.4).</p>
805
806</div>
807
808<h3>Web Interface</h3>
809
810<div class=section>
811
812 <p>The web interface now uses cookies to remember user identity, and
813 allows online registration of new users. Also it is no longer
814 necessary to manually specify the URL of the web interface (but you
815 can override it if you don't like the value it figures out).</p>
816
817 <p>It is possible to allow users to register via the web interface.</p>
818
819 <p>The web interface's browser support has been improved. It has
820 been tested with Firefox 2, Safari 3, Konqueror 3, Internet Explorer
821 7 and Opera 9.</p>
822
823</div>
824
825<h3>Disobedience</h3>
826
827<div class=section>
828
829 <p>A bug which would cause a crash if you attempt to rearrange the
830 queue while no track was playing has been fixed. There is a new
831 'deselect all tracks' option, mirroring 'select all tracks.</p>
