since the vast response on Volumio’s launch, and lot of fellow RaspyFi’s users that are reporting some bugs, instead of relaxing and enjoying the Volumio’s rise I decided to release in short times a revised Volumio beta, ONLY for Raspberry PI since it seems the most troublesome platform as of now (now you little insubordinate piece of silicon!)
You deserve your music to be played as it should!!!
So, these are the current bugs that have emerged, and that I’m going to fix:
1-improve current kernel and further optimize it (I’m not going back on previous versions since I strongly want Volumio to support i2s Audio out)
2- Restore ape, wav and other files support. This is currently disabled due to ffmpeg library issues, that results in database update to take ages to complete (and sometimes not to complete at all). I’ll keep however the possibility to enable a safe mode for the ones who were experiencing database updates problems.
3-Fixing shutdown to result in reboot instead
4- Fixing audio playback with some DACs in some configurations
5- Fixing bad webradio to result in system to freeze
6- Fixing reboot while playing resulting in system freeze
There should be also the non-linear volume control fix, but this is going to take quite a long time to fix… So it will be delayed…
If you are experiencing other heavy issues, please post them here and we’ll see what can be done. The new version could be online in less than a week, hope I got enough time to do things properly (as I really overwhelmed by my daytime jobs right now, lol )
