Hypnos - Beta 5 Release Notes

Hypnos beta 5 is here. My last release notes were wrong; I'm not releasing version 1 yet. There are a lot of minor issues and bugs I want to address before calling it a stable release.

Hypnos - Beta 4 Release Notes

Released: 2018-11-09

Hypnos beta 4 is released. I believe this will be the last beta, the next release should be version 1.

I'm pretty happy with this release. The big change here is in the backend -- we are now using VLC's libraries to decode our audio. Java doesn't have great audio decoding support and the previous decoders were hodged together from various places and had some known issues. Outsourcing this set of problems to VLC lets me focus on the user experience and UI design, which is where I want to be focused. The only downside to this approach is that I have to bundle VLC's libraries, so the download got even larger. I hope to be able to shave it down with a future release. For now, I apologize to any users that are on a slow internet connection.

Note: Hypnos Beta 4 will not load your old library data, and will instead do a single rescan of your entire library. Playlists and settings will not be lost. It just has to rescan your library to pickup some additional metadata we are using.
