    Today's lesson: if you forget to merge changes over between different branches of the same app, you're going to be fixing the same bugs over and over.

    1.0.57/1.0.58 for iOS in processing - fixed mono AAC playback once again, as well as high sample rate ALAC & AAC.

    Well it looks like iOS beta 60 day interval expired, so I'm pushing a new beta today.

    1.0.60 introduces FTP client feature; works similarly to UPnP media server browsing, except it works with FTP servers.
    You can add FTP servers for foobar2000 to index under 'media servers' settings, by typing ftp:// URLs.

    Well, the Windows Store submission got stalled by nonsensical certification errors - certain functions that do work on actual device and were allowed before are no longer allowed. It's now coming thru though.

    In other news, Windows Phone 8.1 support has been brought back.

    I just noticed that current Android build won't run on my "low anchor device", Samsung Galaxy Ace running Android 2.3.7. If you have such old device, stick with old version. I'll see what I can do about making it work again with the next update.

    I think the problem is CPU compatibility with pre-ARMv7 rather than old Android version.

    FTP server incompatibility found-
    Certain clients - ForkLift3 in particular - do not work with our FTP server with a blank password. This has been fixed on our end for the next update.
    If you you are having trouble using foobar2000's FTP server feature, try setting a non-empty password.

    Android-only update today, 1.0.63/1.0.64.

    • Fixed above-mentioned FTP server incompatibility.
    • Folders containing .nomedia files are now excluded from indexing.
    • Fixed incompatibility with certain very old devices (1.0.61 regression).
    • Fixed some cosmetic glitches
    • Fixed first run glitches, "foobar2000 music folder" is now created reliably on first run.
    • Smaller distribution size, you only get binaries relevant to your device instead of all binaries packed into one APK.

    Good news for Android users, the Android port is getting the attention it needed so badly.

    The next update will address file access permissions issues on Android 6 and newer - you will just point foobar2000 at your music folder using standard system folder picker panel, without having to specifically manipulate app permissions. This will also address writing (FTP server) permissions.

    Re: Development blog

    AT LAST the biiiig Android update - 1.0.66 is being rolled out to beta testers.

    Changes:
    • Support for reading and writing of all external storage types. You may need to remove a library folder and add it back to gain write access.
    • Adding folders now uses standard system folder picker where available.
    • Fixed various image resizing quality issues.
    • Much improved swiping between browse and playback.
    • Fixed crash on skin change on Android 2.x
    • Skin picker now uses system file picker dialog if available
    • Library folders now have on/off switches to toggle indexing - you can have certain folder appear in browse tree (and FTP server) without indexing files inside.
    • FTP client (downloader) and FTP server fixes.


    I must say that I always favored the iOS port and I still do as far as the general quality of development tools goes - but for you guys, the Android port is as good as the iOS now.
