BallroomDJ 3.13.2 Released (stable)

BallroomDJ 3.13.2

The VLC changelog lists some quality enhancements in their bug fixes.
Upgrading VLC to the latest version (2.2.6 on Windows) is recommended.

The latest version of VLC for Mac OS X seems to be stable, so the requirement to install VLC 2.1.5 for Mac OS X is no longer in force, and VLC can be upgraded to 2.2.5.1 or 2.2.6.

I have included the change notes from the prior releases after 3.10.5 for your convenience.

Summary:
  • Dual Queues: Interface improved and enhanced. Easier to use now.
  • Playlists: Added a per dance maximum play time.
  • Web interface with simple controls that can be accessed from a small form-factor computing device (Mobile Phone, Tablet, etc.). This is fairly minimal right now until I get feedback on what people want.
  • Many bug fixes.
New Features:
  • Playlist Management: Added a per dance maximum play time.
Changes:
  • Edit Dances: Removed per dance maximum play time.
  • Options/Player: Added ability to specify other options to pass to the VLC player.
  • Options/Player: Added optional startup and shutdown scripts.
Bug Fixes:
  • Black: changed menu checkmark color to dark orange.
  • Player: Playlist Queue: fix drop-down list selection.
  • Linux: fix an installer script issue.
