"°º©o., TunesFiX Bug List / Web Log ,.o©º°"      

§ November 2, 2020 – 1.92 Fix bug in system that monitors for renamed or deleted files - exception was thrown upon reenabling watcher-events if an empty directory was deleted. Add Clear and Refresh to File menu.

§ October 28, 2020 – 1.91 Fresh build and repackage.

§ December 24, 2017 – 1.90 Fixed unhandled exception.

§ May 31, 2017 – 1.89 Repackaged with new self-signed code certificate.

§ March 17, 2017 – 1.89 Replaced the NSIS installer with a Microsoft installer. The song-path was not initially being displayed in the songlist. The web-help was pointing to an old url... Fixed!

§ August 24, 2016 – 1.88 Fixed a bug in the list-view component's column-sorter. Re-packaged with "nullsoft scriptable install system 3.0" (NSIS).

§ April 23, 2016 – 1.86 No bugs found but just re-packaged with the latest "nullsoft scriptable install system 3.0rc1" (NSIS).

§ February 8, 2016 – 1.86 Adds an Exit menu item to the tag-editor form. Fixes a bug in path-name generation that caused some paths to be stored lower-case and with spaces stripped out. Adds a file-system-watcher to detect files that have been deleted or renamed by another process. The SharpZipLib library was not being bundled with the installer. Adds the track-duration as a view-option.

Working on: AcoustID and MusicBrainz tag-lookup...

§ January 20, 2016 – 1.85 This version fixes an error in the About dialog.

§ January 20, 2016 – 1.84 I've abandoned the inate Microsoft .NET user-settings management system in favor of simply storing user-settings in the Windows Registry. The problem is that user settings are stored automatically in the user's AppData folder with a long folder-name (Microsoft appends the program's strong-name to the folder-name). My NSIS installer is unable to remove these folders on Uninstall; therefore, a new folder was being added for each revision of the software. Not acceptable! But this fix works well.

§ August 17, 2014 – 1.83 (Added a View menu where the user can select which song-tag attributes to display (such as Composer, Publisher, Etc.)

§ August 7, 2014 – 1.82 (Added the ability to select multiple files and play them all via Windows Media Player. We write a .wpl song-list file to the application data directory at:

\Users\(???)\AppData\Roaming\Discrete-Time Systems\TunesFiX\TunesFiX.wpl

§ July 31, 2014 – 1.81 The uninstaller was (again) creating two icons in Add/Remove Programs (but due to a different issue)... Fixed (again :-))

§ July 28, 2014 – 1.80 Added a Find utility so that you can search for a particular song in the list... It searches for the prefix-text of an item or sub-item in the song-list.

§ July 27, 2014 – 1.79 Now, when you exit the tag-editor using Esc, no changes are made. If you exit using Enter, and changes were made, you will be given a choice of quitting or applying the changes. If you make no changes and press Enter, you will still be asked if you want to save the dialog's information and re-write the song-file's tag. This is for the situation where the song may have no tag at all or be missing tag-attributes - the tag-editor fills in the title, artist and album itself using the file's path and name. So you may want to just auto-set all selected files with this auto-generated info to get started.

§ July 26, 2014 – 1.78 Fixed a problem with the tag-library in deleting all media tags on a .wma song-file. Also, the sub-fields of missing tags should now be colored gray. Subfield coloring was not properly working. Fixed.

§ July 23, 2014 – 1.77 Fixed a problem with Add/Remove Programs not removing the TunesFiX icon from the list. I ran into problems with both SwiftMiX and TunesFiX when building on a 64-bit machine... (Note to self: It's vital to set the platform as x86 as opposed to "Any CPU" when building with Visual Studio 2012 on a 64-bit machine... otherwise the interop libraries used are 64-bit and won't load on 32-bit platforms).

§ July 22, 2014 – 1.76 Lots of changes/improvements to the tag-editor including a new main-menu. You can now copy and paste song-tag info from one song to another. Double-clicking a song now invokes the tag-editor instead of playing the song; right-click and choose "Play Song" instead. There is also a new edit-menu feature that lets you completely remove the tags from all selected songs (works on both .mp3 and .wma files).

§ July 17, 2014 – 1.75 Changed the installer to NSIS. Music Tag library DLL files updated.

§ October 26, 2013 – 1.74 I'm using my own new tag-library that combines taglib-sharp and a Windows Media library. I will release its C# source-code here soon and perhaps on CodeProject or SourceForge and a link on StackOverflow.

§ October 26, 2013 – 1.73 I expanded the tag-editor's fields to include Title, Artist, Album, Comments, Composer, Genre, Publisher, Conductor, Year, Track Number and File Path.

§ October 23, 2013 – 1.72 The file-path edit box in the tag-editor was confusing as a multi-line edit-box, so now it's just one line you can scroll to the right.

§ October 22, 2013 – 1.71 Fixed a bug that was not permitting album name and artist to be edited. Changed the windows media tag for user comments feom WM/Lyrics to WM/Text.

§ October 19, 2013 – 1.70 Added a help-file and menu that goes to this web-site.

Fixed a bug in Move/Copy that was not inserting a path delimeter. Fixed a bug in the processing of <###> tags.

§ October 18, 2013 – 1.50 If you selected multiple files from different directories and tried to just add a wildcard, say a ? as the filename to set all files to the song's name, the program tried to copy all the files to the most common directory shared amongst all the files. Copying now requires you to explicitly type COPY, type MOVE to cause files to be moved.

Changing the album-title of a block of songs was causing a problem that sometimes made all files in the list "disappear". Now I just sort the list after modifying the tag information rather than do a "Process".

I use the Tag field of each song item to store the file type, mp3, wma, wav, Etc... if the Tag object was null an unhandled exception was being thrown.

§ October 18, 2013 – 1.40 If you select a group of songs that are numbered, for example, 01 1.mp3, 02 2.mp3, Etc. and want to remove just the leading "01 ", "02 ", you can type "<>*" after the slash in the path box of the edit dialog and all files will be renamed 1.mp3, 2.mp3, Etc.

Before, the algorithm would remove all leading numbers leaving just ".mp3" as a filename... Then the remaining songs in each directory would not be renamed because you can't have more than one file in the same directory with the same name... Fixed.

§ October 18, 2013 – 1.30 I was trying to add the ?.* wildcard to rename a selected group of songs to the song-title in the tag and the dialog had a bug that would not permit this. Fixed!

§ August 26, 2013 – 1.20 Added the ability to edit the comments field in an mp3 tag or the lyrics field if it is a windows-media audio file.

§ April 18, 2013 – 1.10 Added entry to Add/Remove Programs List. (My freeware installer does not create this so I coded it myself. - S.S.)

§ April 17, 2013 – 1.0 First published.
