What happened to the share button down in the lower left by what's currently playing? Now I can only share by right-clicking? What does that + thing buy me at this poitn? More random UI changes it seems...

 

I'm at version .9.8.258.

 

I also have to say the last few versions have been extremely slow, especially around discovery. Like I don't even bother anymore.



With plus (+) you can add album or single release to Collection! Give it a try - go for it Smile

 

Hope this helps.

 

Let the music do the job! Rock

If you didnt have the Collection feature, the Plus button will add songs to a playlist named Recently Saved. And that sucks!

It was rolled out randomly for testing only. However you can try an unofficial version here. I got mine from that too :D. Cheers.

When will the update be officially released??? I'm using the windows desktop and nothing has changed on it. My new releases page hasn't been updated since November last year, when I search for artists that have new music out, the new music doesn't appear. I tried downloading over the existing player and it's all still the same. No new music, or new artist, same screen since November 2013.

Download and install an older 9.x release from Filehorse or Filehippo.  You can install directly over your existing version.  It will update within an hour or so, then restart to install the most current version.  You may or may not get 0.9.8.x, but its worth a shot.

 

To force new release updates, you may want to try a clean install.

 

The offline installer link is still pointing to 0.9.7.16.  The new version should be 35 mb or so, the old one is 31.2 mb.  Save this link and check it every few days or so.

It updated on its own, the 4th 0.9.8 version I've seen so far.  I'm in the Collections [Your Music] beta group, so that may explain it.

 

  • The high CPU usage seems to be gone when the Activity Feed doesn't load.  It isn't loading at the moment.  This might be the main improvement of the new version.
  • Still no filtering on Artist pages.
  • Still no Album support in Playlists.
  • Still can't see Starred tracks within playlists, just the "+" sign, no indication what tracks are Starred, only a check mark indicating a track is included in "Your Music."  I hope they are not going to phase out the Starred list completely.

No major differences I can see offhand.  Back to 0.8.3.

Thanks so much for the help!! They must be saving a ton having people use the community instead of having a call center.
