SqueezeCenter 7.3.3 beta ebuild

Slim Devices' Squeezebox

I have pushed a beta ebuild for SqueezeCenter 7.3.3 here:
http://github.com/hickinbottoms/squeezecenter-ebuild-for-gentoo/tree/7.3...

This is a beta ebuild for nightly r26709 since 7.3.3 has not yet been released. Keep an eye on the git tree since I might push out an update or two when I've had time to test it. I'll use a different beta tag if I do that.

This has had minimal testing and so if you have any problems let me know. I'll get an official 7.3.3 pushed out to the Portage tree when 7.3.3 has been officially released.

LazySearch 3.5.2 Released

I have released version 3.5.2 of the LazySearch Music plugin for SqueezeCenter.

This is a bug-fix release that provides the ability to create MusicIP mixes from the results of a keyword search. Other than that there should be no change.

As usual you can get it early from my plugin repository (http://www.hickinbottom.com/sc-plugins/repo.xml), or you can wait for it to be updated within the official plugin repository (Logitech usually do that a few days following the release here).

For those of you that manually install their plugins instead, you can download it from here:

LazySearch 3.5.1 Released

I have just released version 3.5.1 of the plugin. This is a minor bugfix release that silences a warning from the SqueezeCenter log file when the Server Power Control plugin is not present.

As usual, the updated plugin is available directly through my plugin repository (it should find its way into the official Logitech repository soon):
http://www.hickinbottom.com/sc-plugins/repo.xml

LazySearch 3.5 Released

I have just released version 3.5 of the plugin. This is only a minor update that includes integration with Gordon Harris' Server Power Control plugin - server suspension will be disabled during the period of database lazification.

As usual, the updated plugin is available directly through my plugin repository (it should find its way into the official Logitech repository soon):

SqueezeCenter Ebuild on GitHub

GitHub Logo

I've greated a public git repository to hold development and release versions of the SqueezeCenter ebuild for Gentoo. I'll push release versions there at the same time that they're submitted for formal inclusion in Portage, but I will also push beta versions that should be stable and will contain changes that will probably appear in future ebuilds. Some ebuilds will appear from time-to-time for nightly releases for SqueezeCenter on the way to support for future released SqueezeCenter versions. Read on for the URLs.

Lazy Searching Now a "Recommended Plugin"!

I'm happy to report that Slim Devices/Logitech have identified Lazy Search Music as a "recommended plugin" within the Extension Downloader (present in beta form in SqueezeCenter 7.3.0 onwards). That means the plugin can be installed without having to manually add my repository to the Extension Downloader. Thanks to Logitech, and thanks also to the Community for recommending it.

Plugin Repository for SqueezeCenter Created

I have now created a SqueezeCenter plugin repository here:
http://www.hickinbottom.com/sc-plugins/repo.xml

If you have SqueezeCenter 7.3 or later (still in beta at the time of writing), then if you add this repository address to the Extension Downloader then you'll be able to easily install my plugins and keep them up to date.

This repository currently contains my Lazy Search Music and AutoRescan plugins.

Lazy Search Plugin for SqueezeCenter 7.2 Released

I have updated the Lazy Search Music plugin so that it works with the newly-released SqueezeCenter 7.2. Apart from that there are no other changes.

Lazy Search Plugin for SqueezeCenter 7.1 Released

I have issued a small update to the Lazy Search Music plugin so that it works on both SqueezeCenter 7.0 and the upcoming 7.1 release. Apart from that there are only relatively minor internal tweaks that you shouldn't make any visible difference.

Lazy Search Plugin for SqueezeCenter 7.0 Released

I've put together a formal non-beta release of the plugin that fully supports SqueezeCenter 7.0 now. The changes since the previous formal release (for SlimServer 6.5) are as follows:

  • The plugin has now been ported to SqueezeCentre 7.0.
  • Enhancement added to allow the SEARCH button to always enter the Lazy Search menu - ie to disable the option to toggle to the original search mode.
  • Enhancement added to allow repeated presses of SEARCH to step through search types (in line with a similar enhancement for the standard search in SqueezeCenter 7.0. Note that this is only active for the new setting where pressing SEARCH will always enter the Lazy Search menu.
  • Lazy Search menu item ordering is now consistent with that for the standard search mode.
