SongKong 5.1 Release

On Wednesday this week we released SongKong 5.0, adding the new Remote mode however in doing that we introduced a regression to Desktop mode ! 

Substantial refactoring was done in the 5.0 release so that Remote and Desktop modes could share user option code but we broke the the selection boxes in Desktop mode so that it wasn't always showing the option actually selected by the user, instead just showing the first item in the selection box as selected.

SongKong 5.1 fixes this problem, apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Since there is nothing else to say about the 5.1 release here are some more screenshots of the new Remote mode

SongKong 5.0 - now with Remote mode !

We are excited to announce SongKong 5.0 is released today, this is a major release because it now includes a Remote Mode

Remote Mode

This feature means that you can now control SongKong from a remote device using a regular web-browser, and this could be another computer, iPad or even your mobile phone. 


First of all this means having installed SongKong on your computer you can then use it from another location in your home, for example your computer may be in your home office but you can control from your phone in your lounge. 

But it also means you can install and use SongKong on a computer that does not have a Graphical User Interface (GUI) such as a Linux server, and unlike the command line tool you have full access to all user options and administrative tasks such as license installation. 

Because you can install SongKong on the same machine as your music resides on even if it has no GUI the actual file reading and modifying does not have to be done over the network meaning much faster and more reliable matching, especially with large lossless files.  






You could even make your server visible on the wider web and connect to it from the other side of the world. 

Available For

This first release is available for MacOS, Windows and Linux as usual, but we plan releases for various NAS devices such as Synology and Qnap very soon.

Licensing

Remote mode is available for all users, but the Fix Songs and Delete Duplicates tasks can only be run in preview mode unless you have at least a SongKong Pro license


Other Improvements

We can now list all report tasks in reverse chronological order with some summary information, this is available in both regular desktop mode and remote mode.



We have also fixed a number of issues and made some minor improvements, full details on the News page
