2.0.18 released (4.1+)

GMMP finally seems stable enough to roll out to the public.  I believe the issues with pre kitkat devices was resolved so this update should be received by everyone (except those with ARMv5 devices.. since support for that was dropped).  This update is going to both google play and amazon.  Those with the amazon version will not get the 64bit update however.  Amazon developer console is pretty bad and there was no way for me to upload the 64bit version alongside the 32bit version.  I opened a ticket with amazon so hopefully they can give me an answer.

Slow rollout of 2.0.15 (4.4+)

I'm doing a slow rollout of the next update.  It'll start with 20% and increase from there if there are no issues.  There have been a few breaking bugs in previous update attempts so I am being overly cautious.

Here is the list of changes since 2.0.7:

Note 2.0.8 and 2.0.9 do not exist... I reserved those numbers for emergency updates while i work on 2.1 but with the release of android M, it was easier to just clean up the current betas and roll them out to the public

2.0.15 (10/31/2015):
-Fixed distortion caused by 2.0.14

2.0.14 (10/30/2015):

GMMP development is still alive

I was just looking at the main page of this blog and realized there have been no new posts since july.  Anyway GMMP is still in development and there should be an update for 4.4+ devices within the next week (its 4.4+ only due to a bug reintroduced by google in their support library that will crash some older samsung devices.. which hopefully gets resolved).  Its nothing major, mostly audioengine improvements.  The reason things have been so slow is due to 2 pretty bad bugs I ran into when updating the engine.  2 months was probably spent just fixing these issues, but hopefully that is in the past and things will be smooth from here on out.

2.0.5 - 2.0.7

2.0.7 marks the last planned update for the 2.0.x series and I plan on starting work on 2.1 by mid july.  The initial focus on 2.1 will be the audioengine.  2.0 was a big upgrade in the UI department, so now is the time to upgrade whats under the hood.  There still should be some UI improvements like the often requested grid views as well.

-Fixed issue where the UI gets in a messed up state if now playing is set as the starting view and a gesture is used to jump to any of the non library/folder views
-Fixed repeat one with cue files

2.0.6 (06/05/2015)
-Fixed issue with embbedded art not getting recognized without the "prefer embedded art" setting enabled
-Fixed crash in the lyrics view
-Fixed other various crashes

2.0.5 (06/03/2015)
