What's next?

Now that 1.3.x is pretty stable, I will focus my attention on the next major update.  So what is planned for 1.4?

Ratings Rating support has been a popular request so I will add that.  Ideally ratings will be saved/written to the tags.  I would also like to include the ability to rating artists and albums (this will be useful for the smart playlists)

Smart Playlists Smart playlists are pretty straight forward.  You define the criteria you want like "Song Rating > 4 and Genre = Rock", and a playlist is created based off the music in your library.  The user can then decide to shuffle songs that match the criteria or create an actual playlist of X amount of songs that match.  Criteria will also be able to be weighted so you could set up a smart playlist that will play songs rated over 3 70% of the time.    

Jump to X View from now playing I will add the ability to jump straight to the playing artist, song, album, folder, and genre straight from now playing.  Selecting the s…

1.3.11 now available

There is a good amount of fixes/improvements since the last update plus some minor additions.    The majority of bugs that have been reported to me are now fixed, so I will now focus on working on the next major update, 1.4.  The focus will be on dynamic/smart playlists along with the addition of a rating system.  I will also be putting out an x86 version of GMMP in the next few weeks.

There might be 1 or 2 more updates under 1.3.x if there are some bugs that need to be addressed.  Just like the last few major updates, I will post a 1.4 beta on the forums after a few weeks of development.

Enjoy!

Improving tagless support

I'm currently working on making some improvements for playing audio files without tags.  I added lockscreen and widget support to use the filenames/folder names if the tags are not present.  This will be available in the next update (1.3.11)

Preview: Configurable widget opacity

I ran into some issues with my development machine so my work on the next update has been a bit slower than I would like.  1.3.9 will include a feature that many have requested: configurable widget opacity.
