New features in Dj Quarc 1

Finally, we did the step! Dj Quarc 1  is released.

Verson 1 ist mainly a tested and proofed Dj 0.6.10. We have some news features though:

You can now scan and rescan a folder or whole folder structure by just dragging it on the Dot. Since this goes extremely fast, it's a good replacement for the long Update HDs process. So if you just want to get some new songs in then this is the quick & intuitive way to go.

Dj Q. now checks Winamp's current played song and imports it if unknown. It also puts it to the history, so the history now shows everything now, no matter how you played it.

Some little changes and optimizations make the Dj a bit cooler again. So grab it and have fun!

Known bugs

The Dj's Dot doesn't stay always in the front. It's quite tricky to find out when a window loses the topmost style...

Major future plans

background volume scanning

an intuitive way to save and access lists and play setting

sophisticated statistic analysis of user's music taste to provide automatic Dj behavior (Mr. One-Key-Dj)

separation of file transfer and GUI for better performance

Dj should be able to import winamp's current playlist.

...replace the TreeNT by Mike Lischke with Mike's new incredible Virtual Tree, so the Dj's interface will as fast as my little green race car :)
