Notes:

Please report any issues with the beta in this thread only.
Make sure your report is complete, according to the stickys in Bug Reports
(clean install, no 3rd-party plugins, full step-by-step method of reproduction, relevant system specs, links to sample files, etc).

Particular areas which need testing are:
  • Album Art support (view/pane in ml)
  • Media Library navigation tree (drag+drop items, collapse/expand, etc)
  • New ML Local Media filters/panes/config
  • New PMP filters/panes/config
  • Check for any gen_ff/skinning bugs
  • New Podcast views/features
  • CDDB2.5 features/editor
  • Playlist Generator (play tracks similar to)
-Album Art support is still incomplete (more to come: download, refresh, etc) ;-)
-Currently looks for folder/cover/%album%.jpg/gif/etc then embedded (in tags).
-(this order will be reversed in the next public beta).
-Note: At the moment, the only way to clear the cache is:
-to close Winamp and delete the art*.* cache files in the "Plugins\ml" folder
-(art.dat, art.idx, art60.dat/idx, art90.dat/idx, etc).

-mp3surround is playback only for now (no encoding).
-You can find tracks at www.all4mp3.com/music/

-Playlist Generator is still in early beta (rt. click ml/pledit items > Play tracks similar to).
-Notes:
-1) Manual config via: Prefs > Plugins > Media Library > ml_plg.dll > config
-2) Initial Scan may take some time. The more files in your mldb, the longer...
-3) Limited to 20 results only (with option to change coming later)
-4) Obeys the Play/Enqueue as default action in ML Prefs
-5) Database stored in Winamp\Plugins\Gracenote (along with all other GN/CDDB files).
-6) Selected item is not in the generated list (but will be in a later beta).

-Re: Skinned ml scrollbars
-For support, Wasabi version needs to be specified as 1.3 in skin.xml, eg.
-<WasabiXML version="1.3">


Hidden settings:

plugins\gen_ml.ini
Navigation_ItemHeight=18 (default)
Navigation_ShowIcons=1/0 (show/hide tree icons)
Navigation_FullRowSel=1/0 (hi-lite full row in tree, or just the text)
Navigation_MouseDownSel=1/0 (rt-click selects item, or not)

plugins\ml\cdrom.vmd
showeject=0/1 (show/hide 'Eject CD' icons in tree)
showparent=0/1 (group CD Drives under 'Rip & Burn' parent, or not)

These settings will hopefully be accessible via the UI eventually....

__________________________________________________________________________


Known Bugs/Issues:

-Updated JTFE (gen_jumpex.dll) to come later
Includes fixes for a couple of known 5.35 bugs
Also known: Enter & dbl-click aren't working when the JTFE dialog is skinned.

-New CDDB features may still be a bit buggy (eg. see ujay's post below)

-Mouse cursor disappearing over ml column headers (1504-specific) *

-Winamp Modern skin Album Art window still checked in menu when closing it via the 'x', and not changing with colorthemes (fixed version here) *

-"Send To > Format Converter" is broken for multiple selections *

-Alas, Winamp 5.36 Full/Pro is probably no longer compatible with Win9x (Win 98/ME)
(Lite should still be ok, as it is mainly the ML which is incompatible).

* = Fixed internally
