Hi,

moOde 8.1.0 is available for download at https://moodeaudio.org :-)

[Image: attachment.php?thumbnail=2728]    

This release is based on RaspiOS Bullseye Lite (2022-04-04) and Linux kernel 5.15 and includes important new features, improvements and bug fixes. 

Highlights

Enjoy full 64-bit RaspiOS

Starting with this release the ISO image is based on full 64-bit RaspiOS for improved performance, stability and long term support. This image is compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B, 3B+, 3A+, 4, 400, CM3, CM3+, CM4 and Zero 2W. A legacy 32-bit image will also be available that is compatible with all Raspberry Pi models.

Multiple WiFi networks

Multiple WiFi networks can be defined to enable easy network connection when using moOde on different WiFi networks for example at a friends house or when using moOde at audio gatherings or other venues.

Library Playlist view

A full featured Playlist view is available in the Library. Playlists can be created with cover art and metadata to enable sorting and grouping them in various ways. The contents of Playlists can be edited directly. Playlist items can be deleted or moved individually or in blocks. Tracks and Radio stations can be added directly to Playlists.

New Preferences options

Two new options are available including (1) "Track play" which controls whether the selected track is played or the selected track plus all following tracks and (2) "Automatic display" which controls whether CoverView is automatically displayed on the locally attached display.

Tracks added to the Queue are ordered as in Tag view

When adding tracks from multiple albums in Tag view i.e., by Genre, Artist or via search the order of the tracks in the Queue will be the same as the order of the Albums.

In-place update

There is an in-place update that upgrades moOde 8.0.2 to 8.1.0. It's available via the "CHECK for software update" button in System Config. Click the "VIEW" button to read about the contents of the update package and the instructions regarding backing up the system before applying the update and monitoring the progress of the update.

Notes: 
(1) This update can cause the System Config page to white-screen near the end. If this happens check the moOde log for the completion menssage.
(2) The Browser must be hard-refreshed several times to load the updated UI. Alternatively the Browser cache can be cleared.
(3) This update will not convert 32-bit RaspiOS based moOde systems to 64-bit.

I just updated the in-place update section of the announcement to mention a white-screen that may occur and the need for several hard Browser refreshes or cache clear to get the updated UI to display correctly.
