mpd_sima 0.13.1 released

0.13.1 Released

This release is a major refactoring around the use of MusicBrainzIDs:

  • Better search engine for the local library (not only because of MusicBrainzIDs)
  • New virtualenv installer in pure python

Debian package

The Debian package is ready but, unfortunately, it will not be part of the upcoming Debian stable, aka, Jessie.

Mea culpa, I've probably procrastinate a bit too long, but anyway it'll be easy to provide a backport.
In the meantime, please check/test the package

mpd_sima 0.12.2 released

0.12.2 Released

The last two releases contain some bugs and regressions fixes.
cf Changelog for details.

The debian package is on its way and will be available in my own repo but I will not take time to have it uploaded to Debian unstable until this autumn.

mpd_sima 0.12.0 released

0.12.0 Released

This release is a major refactoring:

  • python3 support only
  • instead of a Makefile
  • plugin system
  • persistent http cache, (depends on requests)
  • Switch to python-musicpd as MPD python library
  • Temporarily removed userdb feature :(, blacklisting is still possible though

Progressively leaving

Some might have noticed since last post here, I'm progressively leaving

As stated in the previous post, I've started working with git for the py3k port of MPD_sima. Since I do not intend to get back on subversion, The future is quite simple actually, I'll maintain MPD_sima on my own server only and use mail/xmpp to communicate (bug report, patch, feature request…).

Roadmap, future plan

I did the p3k port in a 0.11 branch its own git repository. In the mean time I decided not to follow the "de facto" current fork of python-mpd and started working on my own py3k port: "python-musicpd".

Everything was then ready to start over MPD_sima development, which I did with a major refactoring to introduce a plugin system. This work is done in a 0.12 branch and 0.11 is abandoned now.

Please update

News: 0.10.0 and dev branch 0.11

Forgot to post a entry regarding the release of 0.10.0. Mea culpa, have a look at the changelog

Lately I've been working on python3 portage, which raised the problem of python-mpd.
I decided to merge my py3k port of python-mpd module in MPD_sima for now, I'll wait for the situation to move on and stabilized around the actual "de facto" fork, python-mpd2.
Even though my work on python-mpd could look like a fork (ie. namespace changed to avoid confusion) it is not, I don't believe I have time and knowledge to work seriously on this project.

Another major change in MPD_sima is yet another attempt to write a :)

My work concerning the latest developments did not take place @codingteam :( but on my personal git repositories. Eventually, I'll merge back into the svn tree here

Please, don't hesitate to check-out and try the code from git repository.

MPD_sima 0.9.0 Released

0.9.0 Released

Main features to come with 0.9.0 is dynamic similarity.
Artists selected to be queued are always the most similar, hence an adjusted and dynamic similarity value depending on how much artists are found within the local music library. This can be tuned, though the current values should be fine, refer to manuals if necessary.

Some bugs have been fixed and minors improvements have been done

Pay attention: python-mpd >= 0.3 is required now due to the use of MPD idle command.

MPD_sima in Debian

The package for 0.9 branch is a wok in progress, I expect it to be uploaded in Debian before it freezes next June.

Move to xz for source tarball

I decided to move to xz instead of gzip for tarball compression, it provides a ~20% gain.

Starting with future 0.9 release, tarballs will be available at as "mpd_sima_<RELEASE>.tar.xz".
