The plan is that unless something unexpected happens, either tomorrow or the day after there will be a test version uploaded.

Some parts of the new design may differ depending on the android version or screen size.

Great work on this app buddy keep it up!!

I recently converted from Media Monkey, then gave Foobar a go... MB combined with your plugin rocks!

A quick update I'll try to get the release apk ready as soon as possible, unfortunately I run across some issues when building with maven and it will take me a little more than I had originally planned due to tight schedule during the weekdays.

Yesterday night I managed to create a signed release build and get it working without crashing. At the moment I tested it only on my device... Tonight after work I will get it tested on the emulator for Froyo and Gingerbread (2.2/2.3) Android and after that if everything goes ok (I hope so) a release version will be uploaded.

also the lyrics don't update for the playing track. the lyrics that show up for every track are the lyrics from the first track i used the remote with.

other than those 2 issues it works perfectly and looks great, thanks kelsos.

one minor request i would have is that when you go to the now playing window that it opens with the currently playing track highlighted ( i am playing  a playlist with 600 songs).

great work kelsos - will get a lot of use out of this.

Hello... everytime I put in an address in MB, after I apply and save it, it doesn't save it in the program. So when I try to put it in the app, I keep getting either "Connection Refused" or "Network Unreachable".

what address? i didn't have to anything on the music be side expect put the plugin in the plugins folder. i just used the default port of 3000 and put my ip address and the same port in the android app.

Maleko12 the problem is with the Specify Address option right? I had some issues yesterday night too so I will check it right away...  

iasc that's really weird with the lyrics if you change the track you get no lyrics not found/lyrics retrieving messages? the version of musicbee used is the latest rc? I ll try to emulated it somehow. Also on the progress bar I have an idea of what goes wrong... so I know exactly what to search, If you go to the next track does for example does it stay full and in that case too? I ll put the highlight feature on my todo list

Yup, Specify Address. But I still get that issue even if I have it at "All" And should the app be on the phone, or on the SD Card? Or does it matter?
