at first I would congratulate with version 6, which I think is a huge step up compared to version 5.

But all my collection does not have the period field filled in - and many of the guests at a party where I tested version 6 for the first time, came to me and asked why tracks and albums where not shown in the Period section - only about 5000 not categorized albums... -

1. Is there a way to have the AlbumPlayer to calculate the period for tracks from the release year ??? - (That would be a HUGE help rather than manually type in the period for all tracks - I think it would take me a year to fulfill...)

2. An extra Release (year) field belonging to the track alone - That will give the user the possibility to make own "Greatest Hits" from existent collection instead of having multiple files of the same tracks. This will also offer the user to search for Album Release and Track (Single) release.

3. Looking forward to the updated Skin - font size in the Beta skin requires Binoculars - (1920x1080) even on 55" screens - when just some meters away. The skin really need some tweaking, but that you have already stated.

I'll keep testing and will be looking forward to the next release.

Btw - no crashes at all so far - very stable beta.
:D

It might be possible to calculate the period from the release date, but that will give only good results for studio and probably live albums but not for collection albums. So many collection albums are released far after the time this music was created.

I might consider later to add more track attributes.

Don't worry for font size of new skin, it will be good. Also still have to incorporate the zoom function more user friendly.

I am happy it is stable.
