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 29 <p>Volume setting is not currently supported when PulseAudio is in
d9bc9ccd
RK
30 use.</p>

2f575936 34 <h3>Changes To RTP Support</h3>
d9bc9ccd
RK
35
36 <div class=section>
37
38 <p>Disobedience now has a menu to select the network playback API.</p>
39
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>

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

100 global preferences in Disobedience

103
164f2e93
RK
104 <p>The &ldquo;Manage users&rdquo; option is now more reliably greyed out if
105 it will not work. This depends on a server change too, so it may still be
106 wrong if a new Disobedience is used against an old server.</p>
51827ce3
RK
107
108 <p>A <tt>.desktop</tt> file is now shipped, making Disobedience visible as
109 an application in freedesktop.org-compliant systems.</p>

114

117 <p>The Debian package now includes a cronjob that backs up the database
118 daily. See <tt>/etc/cron.d/disorder</tt>. You can put settings
119 in <tt>/etc/default/disorder</tt> to turn this off or to control how long
120 the backups are kept for.</p>
121
122 <p>The <tt>disorder-dump -r</tt> option was broken.</p>
123

f71fc3ab 209 <p>Gapless play should be more reliable, and playback latency over RTP
6762ac8a 210 should be a bit lower. Note though that all the sound output code has
f71fc3ab 211 been reorganized and in some cases completely rewritten, so it's possible
900fa0b8

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

RK
557
558 <li>You can now play tracks off the recent tab.</li>

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

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

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

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

682
683 <p>There is now a new user management window. From here you can add and
684 remove users or modify their settings.</p>
685
686 <p>Relatedly, the server will only allow remote user management if you set
687 <tt>remote_userman</tt> to <tt>yes</tt>.</p>

780 <h3>Platforms And Installation</h3>
781
782<div class=section>
783
784 <p>Mac OS X and FreeBSD are somewhat supported. There is now a bash
785 script in <tt>scripts/setup</tt> which will automate the setup after
786 <tt>make install</tt>.</p>

790<h3>Server</h3>
791
792<div class=section>
793
794 <p>Users are now stored in the database rather than a configuration
795 file.</p>
796
797 <p>The server now has a built-in list of stopwords and players, so
798 only additions to these need be mentioned in the configuration file.</p>
799
800 <p>The default inter-track gap is now 0s.</p>
801
802 <p>How sound is played is now controlled via the new <tt>api</tt>
803 configuration command. This also controls how the volume is set,
804 which now works with ALSA as well as OSS.</p>
805
806 <p>A bug in the MP3 decoder was fixed (also in 2.0.4).</p>

810<h3>Web Interface</h3>
811
812<div class=section>
813
814 <p>The web interface now uses cookies to remember user identity, and
815 allows online registration of new users. Also it is no longer
816 necessary to manually specify the URL of the web interface (but you
817 can override it if you don't like the value it figures out).</p>
818
819 <p>It is possible to allow users to register via the web interface.</p>
820
821 <p>The web interface's browser support has been improved. It has
822 been tested with Firefox 2, Safari 3, Konqueror 3, Internet Explorer
823 7 and Opera 9.</p>

827<h3>Disobedience</h3>
828
829<div class=section>
830
831 <p>A bug which would cause a crash if you attempt to rearrange the
832 queue while no track was playing has been fixed. There is a new
833 'deselect all tracks' option, mirroring 'select all tracks.</p>
