TwonkyServer Revision History for 7.x

Postby phibertron » Fri Mar 11, 2011 9:42 pm

Twonky Server 7.3
================

1 New features

· Multi-user support
o Allows setup multiple users with different access rights to the Twonky Server
shares through the Twonky Server settings pages.
o By default multi-user support is disabled. When enabling multi-user support,
two accounts will be created automatically: admin and guest. The admin
account has to be used to setup new users and their access rights. Admin
has full access to the Twonky Server settings pages and to all media shares.
The guest account by default does not have any access to shares. The main
use case for this account is to grant guests access to the home network to
beam content from their own mobile device to connected renderers in the
home. The guest account does not require a login.
o In order to support legacy client devices that are not multi-user capable, a
default account can be assigned to each device. This allows, for example, to
permanently assigning the child account to the device in the children’s room.
This device will then only have access to the content visible to the user child -
without the need for a login. This setting can be over-ruled by a Twonkyenabled
control point that allows authentication.

· The webUI built in into Twonky Server has been extended to a full HTML-5 based
control point that can also be utilized as Remote UI. It supports
o Browsing of other servers
o Beaming to connected renderers
o Renderer control
o Queue management

· Twonky Control Point is directly accessible via TrayApp (for Windows version)

· Navigation tree builder
o Based on the nodes of the 5 pre-defined navigation trees users can build
their own navigation trees and assign them to client devices

2 Improvements

· Improved start up behavior after initial scan
· Improved support for B&O’s EZ2; enabled ”skip to next”
· Improved support for XBOX One
· Improved device detection for Samsung TV F series (2013)
· Improved album art behavior
· Improved Airplay support to MacOS version
· Improved iTunes playlist handling on MacOS version
· Improved the import time of playlists
· Improved the interoperability with Roku devices. Pairing is available from Twonky Server's web configuration pages

3 Bug fixes

· Fixed a bug for audio 3GPP that were wrongly detected and served as video 3GPP
· Fixed a bug for wrongly handled UTF8 strings in JPEGs
· Fixed a bug where Twonky Server started too many threads on the Mac version
· Fixed hang of Twonky Server during shutdown when an Airplay device was in the network.
· Fixed a bug for DSD files where the duration was always shown as zero
· Fixed a crash when removable media (e.g. USB-stick) was removed
· Fixed a bug for recognizing f4v files correctly
· Fixed memory consumption for idle Twonky Servers
· Fixed interoperability for webUI with IE8
· Fixed a bug in the mp4 scanner that sometimes resulted in a non-responsive Twonky Server
· Fixed a bug for non-ASCII metadata in WAV-files
· MacOS: Fixed default shares on Mac. Previously the entries for music and photo folders were incorrectly set.
· MacOS: Fixed: If the server was terminated from the tray app, then the configuration UI was started in a browser and the server was still reachable from the network.
· MacOS: Fixed: Twonky Server didn’t terminate on rpc/stop and rpc/restart crashed the server
· MacOS: Fixed automatic iTunes playlists import
· Fixed a bug where changes in nested folders were sometimes ignored by Twonky Server
· Linux: Fixed a bug where Twonky Server sometimes crashed when timeseek information was available

4 Known issues

· There can be problems in the navigation tree if there is more than one album with the
same album name. By implementing a way to automatically determine correct Album
and Artist one would lose a tremendous amount of memory and Twonky Server will
become slow. In case you detect an album container with songs from different
albums by navigating through music/album please use music/artist/album for your
navigation to get the albums properly separated. Or, as other users have done,
consider retagging the according albums.

· When updating from 7.2.6 or from 7.2.7 on a Windows system with “preserve settings”
some files will be created directly in the main directory of your system (e.g. C:\).
These are the backup files of the update process. After successful update you
can delete these files without any risk of losing data (files are named n.tms.dat,
7.2.6, db.info, db.info-bak and twonky-locations).

· In multi user mode the PS3 only can show the “Access Denied” message in the
video navigation. It will display 'no tracks' and 'no images' on picture and respectively
music. It should display the “Access denied” message there as well.

· The Tray App for MAC does not have a direct link to the web-based control point
(yet). For the time being, you have to go to the settings page first.

· Playlists that contain URLs starting with “http://” do not work. If you have playlists that
heavily rely on such URL, you may want to defer the update till the next version.

· Some terms in the webUI always show up in English independent of the selected
language.


5 Other

· Access to Online Services through Twonky Server will be discontinued in the near
future and replaced by Cloud features in Twonky SDK. In the current version of
Twonky Server, the option is already turned off by default. You can turn it on again
by changing the ini-file. Set “disablemytwonky=0” and the Online Services are back.
However, in one of the next versions we will remove this feature completely.

· The status information about the scanned files on the settings pages (item count)
has been changed. The status pages now only show how many *local* files have
been scanned. Aggregated or duplicated content is no longer taken into account.
When you browse the content you will see – as before – aggregated content (if
configured accordingly) and duplicates will be filtered out.

Twonky Server 7.2.8
================

1 Improvements

· Improved the DSD file scanner; scanning broken files no longer crash the server
· Improved the embedded jpeg-scaler. The rotation flag is now set correctly
· MacOS: Fixed a number of delays in various areas of Twonky Server.
· Support now BIG5 encoding for WAV files. Requires the correct codepage parameter being set.
· Add subtitle (closed caption) support for newest LG and Samsung TV sets.

2 Bug fixes

· Fixed a bug where changes in nested folders were sometimes ignored by Twonky Server
· Fixed a bug where servers named with -- (double minus) were not correctly handled for aggregation
· Fixed a bug for audio 3GPP that were wrongly detected and served as video 3GPP
· Toggling mute in the Beam UI of Twonky Server no longer sets the volume to 100%
· Fixed a bug in the webUI that went unresponsive when the navigation trees were changed
· Fixed a bug for DSD files where the duration was always shown as zero


Twonky Server 7.2.7
================

New feature
- Added support for DSD file format
- Added new ini-properties:
- limit_devdesc_responses_ua: Use this to set a comma separated list of allowed user agent strings.
If this is set, then only clients that use an allowed user agent will be able to get the device description from Twonky Server.
- ini-property: limit_devdesc_responses_ip: Use this to set a comma separated list of allowed IP addresses.
If this is set, only clients connecting from an allowed IP address will be able to get the device description from Twonky Server.
- New ini-property disablealbumart_fallback to define album art behavior:
If a content item does not contain embedded album art, Twonky Server can use album art from other media items within corresponding album.
Default value is 0, i.e. album art fall-back enabled for music and videos.
disablealbumart_fallback=0
If set to 1, album art fall-back for music will be disabled i.e. the embedded album art for one music title isn't used for all music items in the view.
If set to 2, album art fall-back for videos will be disabled i.e. the embedded album art for one video item isn't used for all video items in the view.
If set to 3, album art fall-back for both music and videos will be disabled.

Improvement
- Added device detection for Samsung TV F series (2013)
- Improved the Samsung TV device adaptation for better handling of full HD pictures
- Default settings change! Per default time seek generation is disabled for Twonky Server. This means that initial scan will be a lot faster but some clients won't any longer be able to time seek on the media. The time seek generation can be turn on again by setting disabletimeseek=0 in the ini-file
- Added 8Player to Twonkyís device DB
- rpc/stream_info now contains information on device's online state

Bug fixes
- Fixed a bug when removable drive (e.g. USB-Stick) was plugged or unplugged.
- Fixed a bug in the webUI when changing the default-navigation tree. When changed repeatedly the page went unresponsive
- Fixed a bug for embedded JPEG images that weren't rotated
- Fixed a crash that occurred when a DTCP-IP Twonky Server was stopped.
- Fixed a bug for SSDP messages. The SSDP handling is robuster now.
- Fixed a bug for Samsung TV F-series which caused that thumbnails for videos and pictures weren't shown
- Fixed rare CTT failures caused by the time seek generator
- Fixed memory leaks in the DTCP-IP module
- Fixed a bug for WAV-files with high sampling rates that couldn't be played at WindowsMediaPlayer
- Fixed the wrong album art when navigating through Genre/Artist/Album
- Fixed some long existing Online Services issues regarding Facebook linking
- Fixed a bug for Twonky Server on Linux that crashed when scanning time seek information from .wma files.
- Fixed a bug where Twonky Server sometimes stopped responding when scanning mp4-files
- Fixed a bug in the watchdog cause by the former bug.
- Fixed a crash when removable media drives with shares were removed without shutting down the server (power-off instead of shut-down)
- Fixed a problem that sometimes occurred when Twonky Server was set up to prohibit being aggregated. Some clients received an 'access denied' thereafter.
- Further fixes for the Online Services for Linking and Unlinking issues
- Fixed a bug for Twonky Server UI that didn't properly work on IE8
- Fixed a bug that sometimes lead to Twonky Server getting unresponsive during shut-down when AirPlay (Apple TV) or Roku are in the network.
- Fixed default shares on MacOS. Previously the entries for music and photo folders were incorrectly set.
- Fixed that a remote browser accessing the WebUI of Twonky Server was identified as Twonky Server in the media receiver list.
- Fixed a bug where sometimes the default gateway was not set.
- Fixed a crash when reading malformed PDB XML file
- Fixed LPTT certification issues
- Fixed interoperability problems with CyberLink DMP when downloading JP_T files


TSDK general
- TExample applications removed; will be replaced by best-practice reference implementation

Android
- New Feature: Added JPEG scaler to support scaled JPEG images including album art.
- Improvement: Added video thumbnail support
- Fixed a bug for occasionally failing playback issues on the DCTCP-IP version
- Fixed a server crash due to missing unregisterReceiver in PVWifiManager
- Fixed: iNotify for Android enabled
- Fixed a bug where the server didn't provide thumbnails
- Fixed a bug for pushing thumbnails to a Samsung TV

iOS
- New Feature: iOS: Added PNG to JPEG transcoder
- New Feature: iOS: Added rotation of scaled images to enable correct orientation for clients that do not analyze the rotation flags in images.
- Improvement: If Twonky Server shares are configured to only share music, then iOS no longer brings up the user dialog to query permission to access photos.
- Improvement: Drastically reduced memory usage required for picture scaling.
- Improvement: QuickTime files are now properly flagged on the iOS server, allowing clients that don't support this codec format to filter for those formats.

- Fix a bug for the unravelling that was always failing initially

Known issues
- Same named albums and sorting behavior of Twonky Server: When you have same named albums from different artists in your media collection and you chose the "Album" navigation the titles from both albums will end up together in one view. We checked how to improve this behavior but each fix we found would have caused tremendous performance problems so we decided not to offer a fix. In case you have this problem we can only suggest that you manually change the metadata of the album(s) that cause this behavior.

Twonky Server 7.2.6-3
==================

Bug fixes

- Fixed an interop issue with XBMC by allowing ìRange: bytes=0-ì for content that does not support range requests
- Fixed an interop issue between the Twonky Server UI and IE8

What’s New in Twonky Server v7.2.6-2
==============================

Improvement
- Twonky creates a backup copy of db.info during shutdown (to allow applications to know the size of the database during the initial scan)

Bug fixes
- Fixed an issue with pictures disappearing from Twonky after they have been rotated using the Windows 8 file Explorer.


What’s New in Twonky Server v7.2.6-1
=============================

Bug fixes
- Fixed a crash in the JPEG scaler when scaling corrupted JPEG image
- Fixed several problems in the WAV->LPCM transcoding module
- Fixed a possible dead lock when shutting down the log module of Twonky Server

What’s New in Twonky Server v7.2.6
============================

Improvements

- Improved Web UI behavior when the "ignored directories" were changed.
- Improved the installation behavior. If upload or aggregation is disabled for Twonky Server neither the upload nor the mirror folders get created. This is only visible at initial installation - if the upload or mirror folders are present from a former installation of Twonky Server they won't get removed.
- The upload and mirrored folders are configurable now. The new properties can be set in the ini-file and are named:
uploadmusicdir
uploadpicturedir
uploadvideodir
mirroredmusicdir
mirroredpicturedir
mirroredvideodir
If upload and mirroring is disabled no respective folder will be created by Twonky Server.
- We cleaned up the navigation tree. Therefore we eradicated some categories which were duplicates. No functionality was lost with the changes but Twonky Server got faster and uses less memory now.
- Improved Twonky Server’s subtitle support. The server is now able to add subtitle files after the content has already been scanned. Previously, subtitle files had to be placed there prior to the content.
This improvement works only for systems that support file system event notifications.

Bug fixes

- Fixed a bug at browsing the online videos which sometimes led to long response times
- Fixed a bug at the Web UI which always indicated that Twonky Server is streaming although the streaming was stopped. Note: This behavior can still be seen on devices with huge buffers.
- Fixed the Windows Start menu entry that pointed to twonkyforum instead of community.twonky.com
- Fixed the bug for Twonky Server on Linux system where configuration files were written into two different folders
- Several bugs related to the Online Services were fixed
- Fixed some problems for the persistent device database. The device types are better recognized now and the client expiration time was fixed. Also problems switching networks or having more than on network adapter accessible were addressed.
- Fixed that a remote browser accessing the Web UI of Twonky Server was identified as Twonky Server in the media receiver list.
- Fixed default shares on Mac. Previously the entries for music and photo folders were incorrectly set.
- Fixed a problem with the tray app on MacOS where the server wasn’t terminated correctly so that the server couldn’t be started and stopped from the tray app properly.

Known issues

- Some Online Services problems aren't fixed: Occasionally seen problems with facebook feeds
- For Genre/Artist/Album and Playlists the server offers wrong albumart: Instead of the first valid albumart the default albumart is used as thumbnail.
- We have seen occasional hangs in the web UI when the navigation tree view was changed repeatedly.

What’s New in Twonky Server v7.2.5-2
==============================

Bug fixes
- Fixed two memory leaks
- Updated client detection to prevent duplicated entries in the media receivers list

Twonky Server v7.2.5-1
==============================

Bug fixes
- Fixed a bug where Twonky Server triggered frequent debug output to the system console on certain arm-marvell based systems
- Fixed a bug where Linux systems with a Kernel version >=3.10 suffered from heavy CPU-load

Twonky Server v7.2.5
==============================

Improvements
- Scantime performance and memory usage improvements
- Increased number of network interfaces seen by Twonky Server from 5 to 20.

Bug fixes
- Fixed a bug in the webbrowse pages that led to missing folder thumbnails and slow performance.
- Fixed the MimeTypeSuppress-Quirk in the client adaptations
- Fixed a bug where playlist still were visible although the content was not shared any longer. Please note: If you unshare content that also is part of a playlist you have to manually trigger a rescan inorder to find this change again in your playlists.
- Fixed video playlists. Playlists (either iTunes or WMP) are recognized as video playlists now. In case of mixed playlists the lists will be available at music-playlists.
- Fixed a bug where the picture orientation wasn't taken into consideration of the thumbnails.

API-changes
- Deprecated http_rss
- Deprecated Http_mediarss
- Deprecated http_json
- Deprecated http_wii

QA information
- MCVT 2.0.0.3 (DMS) passed
- CTT 1.5.58.02 (DMS) passed
- UCTT 2.0.46 (DMS) passed
- LPTT 1.22.4 passed
- LPTT CVP 2.0.13 passed

Twonky Server v7.2.4
==============================

New feature
- Added support for IO-Nice on Linux systems. Linux allows an application to set the priority for its IO operations on a per thread level - this feature can only be enabled on build-level.Please note: This feature is kernel specific and therefore may require adaptations for any specific platform.

Improvements
- When installing on a Windows system it's possible to choose that Twonky Server isn't lauched directly after installation. Settings option can be found in "custom installation".
- Improved the standby mode of TwonkyServer:
To enter Standby Mode invoke RPC rpc/enter_standby_mode. On entering Standby Mode TwonkyServer will send byebye messages to the network to indicate to clients it is no longer available
To exit Standby Mode send signal SIG_USR1 to TwonkyServer for example by calling kill:
kill ñUSR1 <process-id>
On exit from Standby Mode TwonkyServer will re-announce itself to the network. The key advantage of using Standby Mode over simple stopping and restarting: Twonky becomes available almost instantly after exiting standby mode
NOTE: Standby Mode is only available for Linux versions of TwonkyServer
- Added aiff metadata support

QA information
- MCVT 2.0.0.3 (DMS) passed
- CTT 1.5.58.02 (DMS) passed

TwonkyServer Revision History for 3.x

Postby phibertron » Fri Mar 11, 2011 9:55 pm

What's new in Version 3.1
--------------------------
new Features:
+ magic playlist resolver which can OS independent find files in playlists,
you no longer need to edit your playlists if you juts copy them to Linux or
on a NAS
+ iTunes database can also now be stored on a NAS and used on a PC with iTunes
and "served" in parallel by the Server on the NAS without modifications
+ Shoutcast radio station selection
Now it is very simple to have your favourite Shoutcast stations
available via TwonkyMedia. just go to http://www.shoutcast.com
and search/select your favourite stations there. Save the
displayed web page somewhere under the content dirs of the
server (preferred solution is to have a special folder name
like "Shoutcast stations").
When saving the web page, make sure that the title contains
somewhere the word "Shoutcast", e.g. name it
"My Shoutcast rock songs.htm"
On the next rescan the server will find this file and present
the stations under
Internet radio
-> - Favourite Stations-
-> My Shoutcast rock songs
+ new event based API for rescans
+ Internet Radio support for XBOX, Internet Radio playlists are now listed
under playlists

Changes:
o improved DivX streaming for D-Link DSM 320
o improved performance again


Bug fixes:
- vTuner now also works on Linux and NAS systems

+ transcoding for FLAC and mp3 (this is based on LGPL programs, flac and lame. If these programs
are not part of this distribution and you need transcoding from mp3 to wav/LPCM or from
FLAC to wav you should download these prgrams and place them in the same dir as the
TwonkyMedia runtime (TwonkyMedia.exe).
See http://flac.sourceforge.net/ and http://lame.sourceforge.net/)
+ support for new macro %KEYWORD (we use the Keywords tag to read in special comments - for iTunes
we use this tag to place the Rating info there, so by specifying musicnode10=Rating,%KEYWORD

+ Folder names can be prefixed by a string to identify them in the navigation
tree (see folderprefix option)
+ new followlinks option for UNIX/Linux systems
+ Dreambox and LinVDR support
Note: the videos served can not be handled by all clients,
e.g. Dreambox can be handled by DSM-320 and TG100, but LinVDR
seems to play only on DSM-320

Changes:
o improved video streaming
o improved support for Go.Video (picture)
o trial version works now for 30 minutes
o scantime can be set to -1 to prevent scanning at all (use DB only)

for mp3 files, wma files can be played (but no ff, rew)
o less update events send to clients to take care for "not overloading" clients
with to much info, like the MCW770 that could not play songs any longer because
it was refreshing its display ;-)
o the linux version -glibc2.2 is no longer there, because the server is now allways
linked against glibc-2.2 - so it will run on old and new distributions
o better support for search on TG100 now


Bug fixes:

of the shoutcast radio genre to add the station to the station list. Leave this empty to add all
stations independent of their genre. Info on genres can be found at the Shoutcast web site.
+ param -rawradiogenre [n] = to display the genres as they are retrieved direct from Shoutcast
+ param -rtpport [n] = set port for rtp server, 0 for dynamicall port allocation (for Netgear MP101 only)

What's new in Version 2.5
---------------------------
new Features:

+ security settings for web configuration page (enableweb parameter)


Changes:
* radio support no longer done via getshoutcast tool, but build directly
into the server. See new numradiostations and radioreread options.

working dir for content scans just leave the contentdir variable set to
an empty string

- WMA parser fixed, track number now read from WM/Track and WM/TrackNumber
tags in various formats
- ini file reader fixed, can now handle files in DOS and UNIX style even
if copied across platforms

TwonkyServer Revision History 1.x

Postby phibertron » Fri Mar 11, 2011 10:04 pm

What's new in Version 1.07:
---------------------------
+ we attended a UPnP plugfest and are now compliant to Philips streamium devices
+ new Winamp plugin for a renderer - now Winamp can play files from the server
when used together with a Control Point like the one from the Intel Tools
+ the Winamp plugin can be configured to a specific IP address in the Winamp.ini file
+ fixed playlist suppport for UNIX version
+ for album we now give the client a M3U file, it should be easier for clients
now to play complete album's and not only one track.
Unfortunately the Netgear MP101 does not make use of this feature.

What's new in Version 1.06:
---------------------------
+ quite a number of Bugs fixed in LINUX version -> tested on Redhat, Debian and Suse
+ new option -ip to bind the server to a specific NIC
+ new options to give server side sort strings for containers, music tracks
and pictures, playlist sort order is never altered (see -ds -ms -ps)
+ default sort for track now uses track number as main sort criteria
+ enhanced threading
+ more robust HTTP handling
+ rescans directory tree every 5 minutes

What's new in Version 1.05:
---------------------------
+ LINUX version!
+ better support for low latency networks which prevented browsing after
server detection (HTTP packet fragmentation)
+ standalone server automatically rescans shared directories and updates
server tree
+ supports now more formats of m3u playlists
+ server with better organized tree (deeper) now available for a small
registration fee

What's new in Version 1.04:
---------------------------
+ support for Shoutcast Radio streaming (tested with MP101 and
Sony Network Media-Receiver)
+ the standalone version can be installed as NT-Service which runs
in the background (-install and -uninstall parameter)
+ support for special characters in titles
+ unsorted requests are now translated as "sort alphabetically"
+ support for the MP101 search function
+ support for the searchable attribute for containers
+ new parameter: -nopictures for standalone server to limit the tree
of the server to audio files only

What's new in Version 1.03:
---------------------------
- Disabled chunked encoding support for compability with Netgear MP101

What's new in Version 1.02:
---------------------------
+ Support for pictures in the standalone server version (not in the Winamp plugin)
+ Support for the new Intel Tools 1.0.1515.27622, which require CR/LF in XML files

Features
--------
- Full fledged UPnP Media Server for audio, picture and video files
- supports Browse and Search action
- support for Playlists
- support for Shoutcast radio stations
- DHWG compliance

I dont know why either

But I took a look at the main sire and noticed that 6.0.38 has been released
I assume your are looking for one the NAS builds of 6.0.37
which is mostly what the above download links are posted for

I am guessing on this
but the release notes for 6.0.38 say that it is an
Important security and stability related bug fix
so I am gonna go out on a limb and guess
that they pulled it from web, as to protect themeselves and their customers
just a guess though

and if your looking for the 6.0.38 link for NAS builds,
it hasnt been posted or created yet

Thank you very much for your answer. I realized too, that it could be due to critical fix in that version. So I will be waiting for the 6.0.38 NAS version patiently :)

I just remembered this

How is this a new feature, it was there in 7.0.0?
Must be that it now works again or it works on folders now...

What’s New in TwonkyServer v7.0.5

1 New Feature

· Adding .nomedia to a folder or a file name prevents TwonkyServer from sharing the content

m3u playlist support broken?

Postby rom69 » Mon May 12, 2014 10:04 am

Hello together,

I'm using m3u playlists for internet radio with Linux PC (x64) build, which worked fine before. Now I'm experiencing the following problems with the same m3u files:
- Rev. 7.2.7: m3u playlist will be indexed, but cannot be played
- Rev. 7.3-RC4: m3u playlists will even not be indexed anymore

Is this problem known and is there a solution coming?

Regards
rom69

Hello,
I cannot get to http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.3-RC4/. Do you know if there will be a 64bit version of the Linux Twonky server?

@phibertron

Thanks so much. I have those. I was wondering if they are coming out with 7.3 Full release. The 7.3 RC was a mess on my system. It performed very poorly

your welcome
yeah, that is the question, when are they going to release nas versions of 7.3?
I wish I had an answer, I haven't heard back on any of my emails to twonky,
nor have I seen them reply to any posts in the forum
I think they took the summer off or something

Thank you phibertron for keeping the list and links updated!

I downloaded 7.3-RC4 last week and installed in on my linkstation pro dedicated for testing. As the link doesn't work anymore I guess that the twonky people have moved forward in the meantime, but nevertheless:

7.3-RC4 starts scanning the directory structure, but never indicates any found files, at the same time memory consumption is slowly increasing.My license code is not accepted (it's always in twonkysever-default.ini, tried to input it via the webinterface, directly into twonkysever.ini and via .../rpc/set_option?cdkey).
Using the last option I could read the key back via .../rpc/get_option?cdkey, but the field cdkey in twonkyserver.ini is always empty/deleted. Of course I tried restarting twonky and the even the linkstation itself.

After switching off the interesting multiuser feature the webinterface didn't come up again, but the process stayed alive using 160% of the poor device' memory... killed the process and waiting for the next version.

Your Welcome

I found 7.3-RC4 and 7.3 for windows to have stability issues
My current setup is running 7.2.8

As for the key issue, hard to say whats going on there
Since the 7.3-RC4 are not up anymore, and there are no nas versions of 7.3
I'd say they are most likely working on fixing issues
