v0.680 Beta Release

Fixes all known problems from the v0.678 beta.

NOTE: This is fourth beta.  Please be sure that you make a copy of your current MP3-Boss directory before installing the new revision.  I'm making this public now so that I can get more feedback on any bugs.  I'd recommend you stay with the current v0.672 release unless you like to play with new beta revisions of software.  THANKS!

This version is the fourth public BETA that includes ZIP and CDG support.  This adds a number of new tables and fields ... so the new DATA.MDB is NOT compatible after the update.  Please be sure to SAVE a copy of your DATA.MDB before you update!

This version fixes some problems with CopyDown problems (for an update), and also adds a new version of the shellbrowser component.

All known problems fixed.

Full install:
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3.exe
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3boss.zip

Upgrade:
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3update.exe
http://www.mp3-boss.com/BETA/mp3update.zip

Questions:
Should the default setting include scan for ZIP & CDG? 
Should the default setting turn off MD5 scanning over the network?  While I'm not doing a lot with the MD5 now ... at some point I plan to use it to do a verification check against file corruption.  Also, it could be used to help recover a partially scrambled drive ... since often just the filename is lost.
Have I forgotten to include anything?  At one point when I was working on this (and so was too busy to respond to non-CDG requests), I was getting a lot of suggestions ... and so some of those suggestions might have been lost.  Please let me know!

Please let me know what you find -- both good & bad!  Thanks for your help!

Re: v0.680 Beta Release

I haven't had any bug reports on this release, and so hope to make it the new official release after another week of testing.  Please let me know ASAP if you find any problems.

There are a few things I'd like to add ... but want to make a new release before I add these features:
1) Need to automatically move/delete the associated CDG file if the main song file is moved/deleted.
2) Need to add a 'Release Date' to List View -- had some problems with this when I tried to link through the ID3v2 Release Date, so I may need to add a new table of configurable fields.

Re: v0.680 Beta Release

I downloaded the mp3update.exe from this link but it gave me the old .678 version.  Could you recheck this please.

Re: v0.680 Beta Release

Ralph -- you were correct!

Both mp3.exe and mp3update.exe were the old version.

I forget that the webserver allows multiple files with different capitalization -- so mp3.exe was old and mp3.EXE was new!  SORRY!

I've fixed the problem.
