Please see this thread for further announcements regarding foobar2000 0.9 beta.



A beta version of foobar2000 v0.9 is available for public testing.

The installer will be be offered as bittorrent download exclusively for the first days to preserve server capacities. Later on, it will also be available as conventional HTTP download.

Further beta releases / 0.9 final release date

Neither the release date for the next beta nor the number of betas before v0.9 final is known at this point. We can understand that people are anxious to play with new stuff, but please be patient and don't clog this thread up with questions about release dates. All you're going to get is the canonical "When it's done" answer.

You will be informed whenever a new version is released.

Compatility with previous versions

Components made for v0.8.3 and older will no longer load.

Public SDK

An SDK will be released to the public after foobar2000 v0.9 goes final. This is to simplify bugfixing by ensuring that the bugs and issues people report are all related to / caused by foobar2000 and its official components themselves and not unexpected behaviour of third party components.

Feedback

Please use separate threads for different issues. The thread title should give a good idea about the contents of the thread and contain a hint that it is about the 0.9 beta.

Installation notes
  • Please install into a clean directory.
  • Disable “per-user settings” in the installer if you want to keep your old configuration. The configuration file is not compatible with v0.8.3 and older.
Requirements

foobar2000 v0.9 beta requires a Unicode capable version of the Windows operating system. It will not work on Windows 95, 98 or ME.

OK, added a list of some of the new features and links to the new titleformat introduction and reference. Your old scripts should continue to work.

Would it be possible for someone to upload it somewhere. I don't use bittorent myself (i'm on 56k), and I'd hate to install a client just to get foobar. I can probably upload it to my ISP space if needed.

Eeerm. Is there a changelog anywhere?

EDIT: I'm just blind, ignore me.
EDIT #2: So, all further releases will be XP/2K only then?

This is an extremely good idea.

richter: I'm not sure if publicly mirroring this sort of thing is encouraged, so I'll PM it to you instead.

Thanks! If developers permit I can upload it somewhere as well for those who don't use bittorrent.

This sounds great - thanks to all those involved!

Picking up on comments by foosion and BenniP, is it possible to run 0.8.3 alongside 0.9 beta 3 on Windows XP under the same user profile?

Also, what is the projected timescale for the final version or the SDK? I'm fond of my plugin collection smile.gif

Oh, and for richter or anyone else that might find this useful, here's an ED2K link for the full version download:

Without a working SDK, how do we port/recompile those outdated modules?

The release of the SDK has been delayed to prevent potentially glitchy recompiled modules from causing bug reports until 0.9 is out of beta.

Yes it is possible. New version will install in foobar2000 0.9 beta folder.

I personally don't know but Peter is usually quick with this sort of thing. This is early beta and I'm sure SDK is to follow in later betas. I hope Case will be able to recompile some of the plugins soon.

Edit: Read post above. It does make sense because most of so called bugs are usually due to third party plugins.

Just downloaded it. The preferences seem a little more organized, which helps out big time with usability.

Biggest issue I have right now is that Foobar still doesn't play iTunes Music Store files. Good news is, this is a beta and by past Foobar history the first of many. Hopefully it is added in the future.

Seems like the database is always enabled, but you now have to specify what folders are to be included.

Edit: Field remappings are a brilliant idea. Thanks to whoever thought that up. For example, $if2(%album artist%,%artist%) is no longer required. You can just use %album artist%. If it doesn't find an %album artist% tag, it looks for a %artist% tag. Brilliant.

I would LOVE to see folder exclusion rules (for subfolders of included folders).

Alright I'm getting some serious distortion when I try to play anything in 16bit. Changing to 24bit works fine.
XP service pack 2, Soundstorm 5.1 onboard sound.
Also, the new volume control seems to be very exponential in its shape, perhaps a little too much so? All the volume changes from 100% back to what appears to be very close to 0% occur in the top 20% (alright lets say 40-50% instead...) of the volume slider.
