Music App update – Sep 8th. 100th rev and v 0.6!

closeDetta inlägg skrevs för 6 år 3 månader 1 dag sedan, och om det är av karaktären åsikt, så reserverar jag mig för att jag mycket sannolikt kan ha ändrat den sedan dess. Är det en guide så kan det också vara så att det inte längre är applicerbart eller fungerar. Dock vill jag inte ta bort, eller orkar sortera, gamla inlägg och därför är det kvar.

Happy 100th revision! For me this is truly a milestone. I mean, 100 revisions since Music was just a basic UI concept. Now look at it. It plays music, sorts tracks by artist, album, has playlist support, shows cover art, seeks and starts to look pretty darn good.

We celebrate by giving you Music 0.6!

New Queue - Now Playing

Victor has made a lot of progress with integrating the new Mediascanner (which will be system wide in Ubuntu) into Music. Packages for using it – together with Grilo QML bindings – are landing in the Core Apps PPA. This is one of the most heavy (important) things that will have to be done by the time of 1.0 release.

The UI/UX is undergoing a real facelift to look like Lisette Ledgers design: http://design.canonical.com/2013/08/music-app-focus-on-the-content/

The focus is on the content with the Queue now playing a central role. The new design are coming a long nicely with both large and small fixes coming in continuously.

The main theme of the discussion me, Victor and Andrew right now is the Toolbar and the expanded listitems, which will make a lot of change.

We are also awaiting the API to make the app stay awake (keep playing music) after screen off.

So there you have it. The changes to and the release of Music 0.6.

There’s still a lot that needs to be done for 1.0 in October, but we’ll get there.
