Okay so I have tried the new version some, here are my results:
Play a playlist online with 3G (30 minutes): Worked.
Play a playlist online with wifi (20 minutes): Worked.
Download a playlist and play it while online with 3G (15 minutes): Worked.
Download a playlist and play it while online with wifi (15 minutes): Worked.
Download a playlist and play it while offline (10 minutes): Worked.
So far everything has worked for me, but I have not had time to do any excessive testing. I will test it more tomorrow but the initial tests look promising. I am sorry to hear that two of you have tried the new version without success though, so apparently they still need to take a good hard look at this issue.
By the way, I cleared the app data and uninstalled the preview version before installing the new version from the play store (in other words, i did NOT chose to upgrade it), since this was the way they told us to upgrade from the preview version earlier. Can more of you try and report here if it works for you or not?
