1.5.0.5

This should be the last pure bug fix update for 1.5.0.x.  It will probably be awhile until the next update since adding chromecast support is not something that can be done overnight.

1.5.0.5 (04/29/14):
-Fixed Queue -> Play Next
-Fixed the album image's context menu
-Fixed issue where delete context menu option is not always available in the song view
-Fixed rare case where playing a track using the context menu would start at the beginning of the album instead of the selected track
-Fixed some typos in the preferences
-Fixed issue where the image cache does not get setup correctly
-Toggling between artist and album artist mode will now properly refresh the album and track count
-Properly handle cue files with years with dashes (ie 2009-07)
-Caught exception trying to listen for incoming phone calls (to pause the music) when the user denies GMMP the READ_PHONE_STATE permission. Please do not block this permission and expect the app to work correctly.
-Lots of other minor bug fixes

3 Years

It was 3 years ago today that I started working on GMMP with a challenge to myself to make a music player in a weekend:

Challenge
Result

Its pretty crazy scrolling through the posts from the last 3 year and watching the player evolve.

Anyway, I am still in maintenance mode with GMMP fixing bugs, but once I am happy with the current build I'll be switching focus to add Chromecast support
