WOHOO!

As always, thanks to the developers for the fine work they're doing... we'd be lost without them.

Coool, this is what I was waiting for...

It would also be nice, if the Autoplaylists would be more noticeable...

Go to playlist manager, right click and select configure lock. A feature I had been really waiting for. Working well so far. Much appreciated.

Sure, ranging from random crashes to 0.5 GB memory leaks.

Confirmed. It's only a temporary bug in the beta version.

The view count is cached, obviously.

For those who use playlist tabs, the command to view/edit autoplaylist query is available in the right-click context menu for each tab as well.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

And for those not using Default UI there are no option to edit them? That's kinda silly, when they can be created independently of UI.

No, I am using ColumnsUI and the method I described works fine.

If your preferred user interface does not provide you any way to access standard functionality, you should blame nobody else but the author of that UI.

ETA: Of course, I'm correcting mainly the overall bad reasoning here. It'll just need some time till the new functionality is added to third party components, this is just a beta preview after all.

Awesome. You guys rock.

Is there any reason a couple of autoplaylists' queries wouldn't be viewable?

Also, Is there any possibility of an "Album list branch autoplaylist" displaying the name of the Album list View it was created from?
Sometimes just the name of the branch node isn't the most helpful.

Has anyone successfully added a sort string to an autoplaylist created off an Album List view? I had an 'All Music' playlist that, when I tried to add a sort string, it completely erased the playlist. (By which I mean, I still had a playlist afterwards, but it had no entries. )

I have repeatedly duplicated this by selecting the top branch from the Album List, creating an autoplaylist, and then adding a sort string. (What the string was does not seem to matter.)

I've played with this some more since initially writing this post, and it appears that editing the sort order of autoplaylists does not really work very well. Additionally, at least one search query type in general seems to be broken. Things I've observed:

1) Create an autoplaylist from an Album List view. Insert a sort pattern (the one I used was 'title' though I've tried others. The result is a completely empty playlist no matter what sort string I try.

2) Generate an autoplaylist from Library Search without a SORT BY string at the end of the query. (For example: NOT title MISSING.) Insert a sort pattern. This neither locks the playlist order (as an auto-sorted playlist would) nor does it change the order of the playlist. Again, the pattern itself appears to make little difference.

3) Generate an autoplaylist from Library Search with a SORT BY string. (My example: NOT title MISSING SORT BY %title%.) This *does* properly (as far as I can tell) create a playlist that is auto-sorted. However, the SORT BY string stays in the query pattern box rather than being reflected in the sort pattern box below. (Which, admittedly, is not a big deal.) Furthermore, adding a sort pattern to the appropriate box *does* change the playlist order in this case, but it appears to completely override the sort in the 'SORT BY' string at the end of the playlist query. (Which, again, is not terribly disastrous.) Editing the SORT BY string in the playlist still works (provided there's no sort pattern below), and removing the SORT BY string does not make it an unlocked-sort autoplaylist.

4) Open Library Search and type in 'title HAS <whatever>'. (I used title HAS candy for this example.) In 9.5.3 it correctly pulled up all songs with the word 'candy' in the title. Here, it completely freezes for about 30 seconds or so, and the results it gives are...I'm honestly not sure what rhyme or reason there is to them, but it appears to have nothing to do with the presence or absense of 'hidden' in the title. This appears to happen every time you do a query with the HAS operator.

(Further Edit, just so's this isn't all doom and gloom): So *that's* what a crossfader does! Awesome!

Overwrite 0.9.5.4 Default UI with 0.9.5.3's. Observe that autoplaylist editing funcationality is now not present in the Default UI playlist tabs. Are you saying autoplaylists are actually implemented in the Default UI or are you just trolling?

I didn't know the Playlist Manager. Thanks

Do you mean like this:

Note that there is only a Filter string. When I try to use a SORT BY expression there, it shows an error message that custom sorting is not supported there.

Reproduced.

Editable autoplaylists: Great.

Maybe some day you can add conditional crossfader options? Crossfading depending on the playback order.

Actually I would like conditional everything. I don't know if it's possible, but if it is, it would be great if you could control settings based on events.

It's on my todo list - Unfortunately i know zero about fb2k SDK and not much about C++ yet

Can you add the "Noise Sharpening" plug in also to New built-in DSPs?

Aha! That makes a little more sense (and I probably should have noticed that it was a filter string, not a sort string). Sorry.

It still appears to me that if an autoplaylist isn't created so that it is automatically sorted, that automatic sorting cannot be added to it later on. Is this accurate?

Same here. But thats one thing. Im waiting for tree based playlist, or at least organized in folders.
Great release, ty dev team.

Thanks for the crossfader! May i ask for a simple toggle on/off menu item under main menu -> playback wich lets you quickly (assigned to hotkey or button) switch on and off the crossfader when it is enabled by dsp manager.

The new autoplaylist feature is really great! Saves me a lot of hassle when I want to tweak one, was waiting for it since I discovered this great autoplaylistfeature.

One thing about playlists though, saving them to m3u or fpl always leaves the name blank in savewindow, why isn't the playlistsname filled by default for that? Would be a nice feature. (also save all playlists at once with their names intact...).
