Bug Description

0.3.x still has many regressions from 0.2.14 which need to be fixed. This is a tracking bug to ensure we don't forget anything. It should be edited (or commented upon) to account for any deficiencies in the list and/or progress made in removing regressions. If more-detailed information or discussion on a regression is required, that should be done in a separate bug and linked to from here.

List of known regressions:
  - CD burning support
  - transfer to ipod (?)
  - mtp device support (possibly blocked by pymtp)
  - visualizations
  - custom sink
  - blacklist support
  - support for album covers in collection
  - library auto-scan / auto-update options in the GUI
  - proxy support
  - date added field for smart playlists.
  - lyrics pane, wikipedia info (make info providers-based, add as source?)
  - no man page (bug #479780)

Plugins that need porting:
  - icecast (needs multi-sink output support)

The smart playlist search is missing a couple of fields that were available in 0.2.14:
- Data Added (most important in my opinion, for what new stuff do i have queries)
- Last Played

that should be *Date* not Data

The option to use cover art as thumbnails in the collection list is missing in 0.3.
Also right clicking and selecting properties doesn't work in 0.3, instead this is printed in the terminal:
Traceback (most recent call last):

Am I missing something or exaile does not support anymore ?

Sorry guys, but this new release is.. how i can define.. crap?

i can't scrobble
i can't manage my ipod
i can't view the lyrics

wait.. i can control the volume from the notification area ;D </sarcasm>

AudioScrobbler and LyricsFly work
Lyricswiki was broken because of lyricswiki, not the Exaile developers.
iPods would work much better if Apple wasn't so pissy about breaking
compatibility with every release

By the way, bug reports are not your psychologist's consultation room.
Please only add comments if you have something useful to say for the
resolution of a bug.

I'll second ezekiel000 - Dynamically adding similar tracks to the play list doesn't work in

reacocard (reacocard) wrote :

@Kevin - works for me. Make sure the " Dynamic Search" plugin is enabled in the prefs.

ezekiel000 (ezekiel000) wrote :

If Dynamically adding similar tracks is dependant on Dynamic search plugin then the button shouldn't appear if the plugin is disabled to avoid confusion.

Closing this bug since for the most part, the remaining features either already have their own bug, or haven't been asked after in 0.3.x. If you wish to continue discussion on any of these, please use a different bug.
