Planned features for Subsonic 6.1

Postby sindre_mehus » Tue Feb 07, 2017 8:52 pm

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share with you what I've been working on for the upcoming 6.1 release:

New: Improved video streaming with HLS.
New: Bookmark support for podcasts, audio books and videos. Works across web players, SONOS and apps.
New: Improved artist radio feature. Prioritize top songs.
New: Improved search relevance.
New: Moved shuffle button next to player controls.
New: Added tooltip to player buttons.
New: Added controls for selecting all tracks in album/podcast/play queue.
New: Moved menu above play queue.
New: Show album and artist images on search result and "starred" pages.
New: Added tag support for AIFF files.
New: Added support for manually selecting video bitrate (in addition to HLS adaptive bitrate switching).
New: Added support for using MySQL or Postgres as database backends.
New: Upgraded default database HSQL to version 2.3.4.
New: Added table headers in web interface.
New: Nicer cover art images on hi-res screens.
New: Updated Dutch translation, courtesy of Toolman.
New: Updated Korean translation, courtesy of Rhetor Choi.
Bugfix: Fixed broken Chromecast support.
Bugfix: Avoid multiple submissions to Last.fm
Bugfix: Missing artist images.
Bugfix: "Save as playlist" broken in Firefox.
Bugfix: Left pane reloads when reloading random albums.
Bugfix: Download play queue broken if containing duplicate songs.
Bugfix: Windows uninstaller should only delete known files.
Bugfix: "Download all" sometimes causes corrupt zip file.
Bugfix: Some podcasts with https don't work.
Bugfix: Delete all pertaining files when deleting a podcast channel.
REST: Added getScanStatus and startScan methods.

I hope to release a beta version within a few weeks.

Take care

can you post, here or on the API google group, which of these are seen by the API? I know you talked about "similar songs" using the top-songs aspect, per "New: Improved artist radio feature. Prioritize top songs.", but wondering if the search queries' results will be different, etc.

Obviously, "REST: Added getScanStatus and startScan methods." is new. Not sure I'll add it to subfire directly, but maybe to SubFire Radio (the playlist generator). Is there a minimum security level (e.g., "must be Administrator") to use that feature in the API?

Yaay! What about the "put the song I'm listening on the top when I click shuffle" :D Or the posibility to "Play Random" playlists.

¡Thanks a lot!

Hey, that's really cool. I'm just messing around with our audiobooks. :roll:

What about an option to put a book-description somewhere (tag or textfile like booksonic does)? Would that be complicated?

This is great news! So video transcoding will work again? I haven't been able to stream videos since v5.
