In 1.1.4, removed a number of music software players e.g. MPD v17, XMMS (VNC).   After updating to 1.1.5, these players re-appeared (and easily removed).  Would be nice if firmware update respected music software choices which have been removed.

Good idea. Havn't thought of that. Will try and find an elegant way to add this in for the next release.

As a follow up question, does removing a music server removes everything?  Or is this not practical and there will be leftovers?

For Roon ,there are a number of folders and database that needs removing...

MPD and Squeezelite will have it's executables renamed. So for all intents and purposes they will not show up in the list. But when you install a new firmware they are replaced back. Hence the problem. The databases etc are left untouched, so that's the leftovers.

Everything else that's managed by packages (Spotify, Roon, etc) will not show up when you do a reinstall.

When you uninstall packages, I'm using the "purge" command if not wrong. So that will wipe everything, folders, databases, etc. However, if you create or modify those files, there's always a chance they are not cleared by the package manager.
