      R5.1.1 Changes

      Fixed bugs related to iTunes M3U playlist reading.
      Configuration dump feature has been split into "normal" and "complete", the latter not exporting huge album art cache file, as the resulting dumps were problematic to transfer.

        New option to combine multi-disc albums as one album (disc 2 would have tracks offseted from 100) enabled by default
        Improved Linux web interface, made apply button semantics more obvious as that it was confusing before
        Mac OS 10.9 is now the oldest supported Mac OS for the Asset application.

          Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

          R6.1 Changes

          Search changes merged from Windows codebase.
          Better handling of ../ relative paths in playlists.
          Better response to entering an invalid path in media/playlists folder configuration.
          Added visible feedback when there's not enough free space in Asset's data folder.
          Prevented the same criteria under "Additional" from being selected more than once.
          Playlist manipulation fixes.
          Made specified playlist folders indexed recursively.
          Prevented 'playlists' root browse tree entry from disappearing when no playlists currently reside directly in the specified folders.
          LAME updated to 3.100
          libvorbis updated to 1.3.6
          Various debug logging refinements to aid with future debugging.
          Improved reading of ArtistSort, AlbumSort etc values from various file formats. We now accept either spelling of the field name, "artist sort" (with space) or "artistsort" (without space) and so on.
          QNAP packaging and folder structure cleanups - no more config data in bin folder, smaller distribution size.
          File naming cleanups, removed "trial" which confused some people - installing trial or beta over registered always results in Asset functioning as registered.
          Added support for new QNAP devices with 64-bit ARM processors, TS-128A and similar.

          Bug Fixes

          Fixed ugly Asset device image due to outdated included image.
          Fixed missing album art for some folders when browsing by filenames & folders.
          Fixed "download configuration dump" feature giving wrong data on embedded Linux (QNAP and other NAS types).
          Fixed mishandling of UTF-8 BOM in M3U8 playlists.
          Fixed web configuration glitches.
          Fixed download configuration dump giving nonsense on embedded Linux... previous fix wasn't quite working as it should. *sigh*
          Fixed for specific devices such as LG TV hammering Asset and causing excess memory usage.
          Fixed missing playlists after manual editing of browse tree text.
          Fixed lockup when trying to stream non existent files without decoding/reencoding.
          Fixed extreme memory usage when a client walks a large shuffle-tracks folder in small steps (encountered with LG TV).
          Fixed missing DoP option for DSD files.

            Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

            Release 6.3

            Made transcoded MP3 bitrate configurable via webconfig (Linux)
            Made possible to edit database fields through configuration dialogs/pages
            Made device ID generation consistent with Windows version of Asset, should fix certain devices being unable to show more than one Asset instance
            Mac OS Mojave Dark Mode compatible
            Improved behavior of playlists referencing external storage on Mac OS.
            Fixed missing Composer info when browsing.
            Added automatic recovery from database file corruption; should address problems with Asset completely failing to see music for some users.
            Added Mac OS Catalina compatible code signing.
            Mac: Mac OS 10.10 "Yosemite" or newer required
            QNAP: ARMv5 no longer supported. This affect very old QNAP models only.

              Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

              Release R6.4

              Fixed missing folder watching inotify code on Linux. Music folders are monitored in real-time again.
              Added a workaround for some control points failing to show Asset after its unique identifier formatting was changed in R6.3.
              Fixed --shutdown command not working reliably.
              Improved feedback to manual rescan of media library folders - in some scenarios, the information about rescan-in-progress would only show with a delay.
              Added INSTALL.sh and UNINSTALL.sh scripts. Just unpack the tarball and run ./INSTALL.sh in the folder to get Asset installed in ~/bin/AssetUPnP and registered to run on startup (via crontab). If Asset is already installed there, existing installation is upgraded. UNINSTALL.sh reverts these changes, removing Asset and its configuraiton. No need to run as root.
              Added ARMv5 binary.
              Once again compatible with old QNAP models where R6.3 would not run.
              Should work on ARMv5 based Synology models.

              Note OSX is not updated t R6.4.

                Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

                Release R6.5

                Improved reading of certain malformed ID3v2 tags.
                Internet radio bug fixes.
                Made ID3v2 TIT1 always read as 'Style' in all file formats using ID3v2 tags; a full rescan of your library is needed for this change to take full effect.
                Memory usage improvements.
                Improved scanning of very large libraries - resumes where it left if interrupted, rather than starting over.
                Fixed extreme memory usage and failure to read tags with certain multi-chapter M4A files.
                Made various web interface operations use HTTP POST rather than GET to avoid unintended actions.
                Fixed spurious restarts of Asset on some NAS devices.
                Added support for cover art encoded with WebP.

                  Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

                  Release R6.6

                  Fixed issue causing some parts of the library to disappear in specific conditions.
                  If you were affected by this bug, new version will detect malformed data and perform a full library scan to clean this up.

                  Made web interface /setconfig reject GET so you can't accidentally wipe the config by opening /setconfig from web browser history.
                  Fixed browse tree shortcuts to dynamic browsing showing empty track lists.
                  Fixed some cases of "new albums" browse tree showing empty track lists.

                    Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

                    Release R6.7

                    This is the final maintenance update of R6 series. R7 is being worked on.

                    Install script now prints a link to the web interface upon successful startup of Asset.
                    Fixed an issue with browse tree shortcuts not working properly in some cases.
                    Added _gsdata_ to ignored folder names.
                    Additional debug logging of skipped music folder content.

                      Re: Asset for QNAP, OSX, Linux & Pi

                      Updated to R7.5 - all versions except Windows

                      Updated "albums defined by folder" logic, default behavior is again consistent with pre-R7.4.
                      Tweaked sorting logic.
                      Fixed too quiet decoding of specific AAC audio files.
                      Additional debug logging added to investigate specific bugs.
                      Fixed web config lockup.
