  • if a client has subscribed to "server push notifications" then the "song is missing, do you want to find it?" dialog will never be shown, the song will just be skipped, and the client will be notified

  • fixed another potential crash on startup (wrt: hide / showing the TriceraSoft store)
  • when buying from Karaoke.Net, if your CC details aren't correct, you get taken to the CC dialog, not the KDN dialog
  • auto-cue (skip silence at beginning) threshold is now 0.01, instead of 0.001. is that bad?

  • when you play a song that is a music store song, one that you already bought, and the bought song from the library is substituted in, and the store song happens to not have a duration, we copy the duration meta data, so you can see how long the song will be
  • FIXED HANG: when purging sort lists on a back thread (it's sent to the front thread)
  • When playing a store song in a non-store playlist (eg: the library or some other playlist), and that causes a purchase to happen, the song will now play the full song (not the 30 second preview) and you'll also see the video (instead of the video being blank)

  • updated the "wtkJams" ShowScreen so it includes Android

  • FIXED SLOWNESS: in the server due to wtkJams

    • if the "up card" for intro or outro won't fit in the available space, kJams will seek one with " (small)" at the end of the name. if that fails, " (tiny)".
    • comp blobs can be marked as "label sensitive". if so, the background color is set by the label color (experimental)
    • name of element picture can contain the [cBak] key, meaning you can get a different pic depending on what's in the "Background" meta data column
    • you can turn on a checkbox that will show the current CDG "Font" rectangle that is being drawn

    • when creating a page that has only 2 lines, it should now draw the lines such that they span only 2 CDG rows, instead of 3, so the page loads faster (2 wipes instead of 3)
  • Windows:
    • if you got the error about "initializing audio output", it may have been about that the channel was already taken. made the error message more clear about that.
    • if you had a non-CD disc in your CD / DVD drive, you'd get an error about "track start / length". fixed
