Regressions fixed in Jaikoz 8.2.1

Unfortunately there was a regression introduced into Jaikoz 8.1.1 and another regression found its way into the Jaikoz 8.2.0  release last week, both of these problems are resolved in Jaikoz 8.2.1

Preferences not preserved

The effect of the first regression was that any changes you made to your preferences may not be preserved upon update. If you updated from any of these combinations

  • 8.1 to 8.1.1
  • 8.1.1 to 8.2 
  • 8.1 to 8.2 

you need to do additional steps to recover your preferences, if you updated from an earlier version such as 8.0 there is not an issue.

Firstly see if you an old version of your preferences file, named as settings.old as follows.

From Finder, hold down Option Button and select Go menu
Select Library from the list
settings.old found in Preferences : Jaikoz

settings.old found in C:\Users\username\Jaikoz

settings.old found in $HOME/.jaikoz/Prefs

If you do have the file

  • Close Jaikoz
  • Delete settings.jai
  • Rename settings.old to settings.jai
  • Install Jaikoz 8.2.1

If you updated twice from 8.1 to 8.1.1 and from 8.1.1 to 8.2.0 then settings.old probably doesn't have your preferences.

In this case the solution is to either check your backups for an earlier version then put that back and install Jaikoz 8.2.1 or to manually apply your preferences again.

The second regression could result in an error occurring when trying to match a folder of random songs
