Dmitry congratulations for this great job! :)

"Override mix with the previous track" works perfect, thank you very much!.

Here's a list of problems I was finding:
1-The preview does not work for streaming. (But if it works for the main output) The link to use is as follows http://musiconefm.com/Varios/Enlace (makes a redirect)
2-When the theme "Windows 10" is chosen the "interface theme" select "Windows". (I guess you should select Windows 10)
3-After changing the skin to "Windows", the remaining time and elapsed they are cut. (And also he does not have the power he had in RB 5.3, which I liked) See attached "Image 1"
4-Small aesthetic problem with the clock source. For some reason the font size is large and "Almost" is the text on the edge of the box clock. See image 2
5-Testing events appears this manually. A track this "tabbed" deeper into the playlist. Do not know if this is a mistake, maybe it is a new feature. See picture 3
6-Several problems with Sweapers in ADS scheduler. Tomorrow I will comment on this.

Thanks

Dmitry me some questions that arise. If then write this in the main post, you need not answer me.

-Now you can see the statistics RadioCaster in RB?
-I see improvements in downloading files:
 Now you can download files they need http authentication?
-As the new works DTMF "counter phase"
-Music Library: Check music tracks new check: long periods of silence


Now that the possibility of changing the color of the panels was added. It is very difficult to add the possibility of using two colors for each panel, or else a background image ?. For panels with two colors are great (see picture attached)

You're welcome!

1-The preview does not work for streaming. (But if it works for the main output) The link to use is as follows http://musiconefm.com/Varios/Enlace (makes a redirect)

Thanks for reporting!

2-When the theme "Windows 10" is chosen the "interface theme" select "Windows". (I guess you should select Windows 10)
It does so only on Windows versions prior to Windows 7, otherwise it uses the standard Windows skin, only changing colors and fonts.

5-Testing events appears this manually. A track this "tabbed" deeper into the playlist. Do not know if this is a mistake, maybe it is a new feature. See picture 3
Yes, this was going to be a new feature (scheduled events grouping in the playlist) but it was decided to turn it off for now - it seems that it wasn't turned off completely :)

It should work if the site uses standard HTTP auth. If it doesn't work please send me a link to test.

Thanks for the suggestion, will be added at some point in the future.

Thank you for the new update. Was the mixdown feature included? Where you can mixdown the playlist into a single audio file. I had requested for it as a feature several weeks ago and you'd said you'd add it.

The feature was not implemented in this release, sorry - it's still planned for the future.

Several bugs in ADS Scheduler.
In a last test I appeared this error, generating events.
(Under the sweapers settings that perhaps has to do with this)

On sweepers:
I am using a trial "find the best matching sweeper". and time is "5 minutes".
As you can see in the picture attached. 2 tennis insert which has a duration of almost 10 minutes.
In a list of the generated lists he had chosen the same song twice for filling. This should never happen.

"Use random sweeper" It also has the same problem.
I think there would be necessary to request an acceptance range to choose sweapers.
For example: Filter tracks lasting more than 3 seconds the needy and less than 2 seconds.

Of course to meet the time may be right to insert two sweeapers but should never be the same.


For testing I'm using a folder containing 3,000 songs, so this problem is ruled out due to lack of sweeper.

Thanks

It's now individual for each playlist, right-click on a playlist tab to see the option.

Thanks for reporting - looks like sweeper selection code is faulty.

OK, I think the sweeper selection code needs to be reviewed. Thank you very much for the insights, please wait for the next update, sweeper selection should be improved there.

Hello. I have a couple of suggestions. Could there be a skip next song button or a next random song button? I have the playlist on random a lot and sometimes I don't want to hear what's coming up next and would like to skip it. Also, I would like to suggest more than 1 song in the "Coming up next" box.

The newest version has a couple issues that I see. The song times are completely gone under now playing and my "On Air" is cut off. - see attached

   Thank you guys for such awesome software!

You can re-init the random sequence by performing any edit operation on the playlist, e.g. cut and paste back the track.

Yes, I also see the ON AIR is cut - will be fixed in the next version, thank you for reporting.
