We've just uploaded a new, and big update of Breezer 2013 RC the 13rd update since June.

This time we focus on:

  • Bug fixing
  • Improve search predictability. 
  • Upgraded audio engine (now we use NAudio 1.7).

Bug fixing

The vast majority of the bugs we fix were related to the search engine and the docking features.

Search engine changes

We fix a few things. First of all now the tag library panel has it's own configuration box containing any setting that can alter tag engine behavior.

File-hash calculation is now a little bit faster (a file hash is a digital signature of your files).

Updates audio engine

NAudio 1.7 fixes many bugs and improves ASIO compatibility (an area which created some problems in the past) and improves engine performances in many scenarios.

You could download RC bits here in the same page you'll find a complete changelog.

Breezer 2013 Release Candidate is out!

Today we are proud to announce the release candidate of Breezer 2013! There is some work to do, but our testers give us the green light for the release!

We call it: the fall edition.

What we've done since beta 7

I try to summarize:

  • Stability, predictability, usability. The entire staff (developers, testers and the support staff) put all the energies to make this release more stable and to fix every user interface inconsistency we found.
  • Fix every hard-to-replicate bug. It's a tiring job we know, but we receive many feedbacks about errors which prevent Breezer to run correctly, or at all. We contact each tester to find out what's going on on their workstations and we finally solved every bug we were aware of.
  • Improve browsing and previewing experience. We know since Breezer 2012 that some audio cards (especially the chipset-integrated found in laptops) behave differently, causing clicks, pops, misalignment and such problems, we tried to mitigate those problems with a new option (found in the options window) which, when active, tells Breezer to be more gentle with the audio card. Obviously turning on this option has a small performance impact.
With this release we also updated the user interface with the final theme which is more clear and easy on the eyes.

Looking forward

We already shifted the beta time bomb (since beta 6) to 1st january 2014, so you have plenty of time to check it out. In the meantime we hope to release Breezer 2013 on 23 November 2013. I'll keep you update here and via our Facebook page.

Also we confirm here that both Express and Pro editions will use a per-user licensing scheme, which means that the license we sent to you (simply a text file) could be used to activate any number of workstations you may have. We think this is a more fair licensing scheme, obviously each license is watermarked so any abuse could be tracked, and the license revoked.

For the most curious one a complete list of what we've done is here
