I just updated to the latest release of Volumio and it is clearly a huge leap forward in terms of speed and visuals.
But…there’s one thing missing that I think is going to send me back to using v1.55…the lack of the library view option.
I use the library in 1.55 always. It’s a really nice, organized, very fast method for getting around your music collection. The difference between the library and browse method of getting around is night and day.
The new version only seems to have the browse method. That’s a deal breaker for me. Although I really like the features like the album art view, the automatic updating/no need to reflash, and especially the speed improvements for things like recognizing new files…all really great stuff. But without library, it’s a net loss. Library view is what made Volumio the clear winner as compared to other options like Pi Music Box and others.
Am I just missing the option to turn it on somewhere? Is it planned to be added? If/when it is back, I’ll be very excited to update again.
