Been slightly over a month since the last alpha release for blind testing. Here's what's been happening so far:
  • Tweaked Dark themes, and also other themes slightly
  • Fixed mpd remote detection
  • Added feature to remove PulseAudio if it's installed on your system
  • Many many bug fixes
You can always check the roadmap to track the current progress. So far we are about 76% done.  As always, leave a comment below if you have any bugs/problems. As usual, this is an alpha so there will be bugs. So please use at your own risk.

While we are not there yet. In the beta cycle I'm going to make one change to Blind Testing - and that is to remove mpd-git from the player list.

Back in the day, the released version of MPD and the active development branch can sound different. Nowadays looking at past few releases the released version and the git head are identical, if not almost identical. Right now there is no real benefit of including mpd-git. Let me know if you think otherwise.

Have you got DSD native to work? If yes, can you hit the refresh button on that panel, and see if DSD shows up properly?

Just installed 1.1.0 Alpha 2. When the installation was done, the last message said to Click OK, but the button at the bottom of the page now says "Close".

Blush Whoops.. I'd need to update the translations to fix that. Thanks for the bug report.

Edit: Just checked the translations. The 1.0.x firmware still has the above bug, but the alpha versions all say click 'Close' now.
