Can you explain the use of the scheduler "next"command with timer?
Also I thought you were planning to implement a "fadeout without stop" command in this release.  IS that still possible please?

Kind regards

Sorry for that, last minute change before release broken custom style support. A fix will be released soon.

You can use is like this: next 3000 change 3000 to any other valuse you like, it's in milliseconds, 3000 ms = 3 seconds.

Can tags be read and written using the API?


Is it possible to add custom fields as a filter in Playlist Gen Pro?

Any chance for this beta that the left panel becomes a work zone?
All the tabs (except dsp) are already available in the work area  ;)

Hi Dmitry, when I enable the scheduler, the audio bars and timers freeze for approximately 200 ms every second.
I don't think the number of events is the problem.
It is not something that affects operation, but it is an interface problem.
This happens since RB 5.8 Beta, there is no antivirus or other software of this type installed.

Congratulations on this new version.
Thank you :)

This is not a bug. Deleting a tag will not remove it from music tracks where this track was assigned. If you want to completely remove the tag, you should use Music Library, select all tracks and remove this tag, then remove it from the list.

Can tags be read and written using the API?
Yes, in the next update it will be possible.

Is it possible to add custom fields as a filter in Playlist Gen Pro?
This is not planned yet. But maybe use Tags instead? They offer powerful filtering features.

Any chance for this beta that the left panel becomes a work zone?

We're gradually moving towards it. What do you want to use it for, e.g. what tabs you want to add there?

Buffer preloading is still under developement, may be it will be available in this version as experimental feature.
About weather, it's almost ready, and it will allow you to use alternative weather sources (e.g read from a text file).

No changes were made in this regard in the newer version. There are not a lot of events to check, so I'm not sure why this happens. Maybe computer reboot will fix this?
