  • HTTP Connection stalling supported for ALL streams.
  • Entertain priority in GStreamer-based HTTP streams.
  • Rename 'upnp_enabled' in configuration to 'upnp-enabled'.
  • Add section about MPRIS plugin to manpage.
  • Several fixes/improvements to manpages.
  • Fix some environment variables' names.
  • Use both user & system configuration. So far, we have been ignoring the system configuration file when the user configuration file exists. This leads into problems whenever our configuration keys change. Now we load configuration from both sources and get the config value from system configuration if user configuration doesn't offer a value for it.
  • Use 'data' directory in source tree as the system config location when configured to run uninstalled.
  • Configure option to enable fatal valac warings. Also make this default when running autogen.sh.
  • Make configure --help less ugly.
  • Make use of modern autotools.
  • Show VALA flags in configure summary.
  • Remove special configure flag to enable maemo configuration as it should just be the default in maemo-specific branch.
  • Clear the ChangeLog file content.
  • UI:

  • Option to use 'any' network.
  • MediaExport:
  • Hide empty virtual folders.
  • Don't keep empty containers in DB.
  • More debug output.
  • Tracker:
  • Only share available files: As tracker also indices removable media we need
  • to filter out those files that are currently unavailable.
  • Localization:
  • Add Kannada translation.
  • Update UG translation.
  • Update German translation.
  • Update UK translation.
  • Update Gujarati translations.
  • Update Ukranian translation.
  • Update Hebrew translation.
  • Update Norwegian bokmÃ¥l translation.

  • Many other non-functional and/or minor improvements and fixes.
  • Dependency-related changes:
  • Require & adapt to Vala 0.11.6

New in version 0.9.8 (February 1st, 2011)

  • Another micro release that fixes the broken Vala check.

New in version 0.9.6 (January 12th, 2011)

  • Correct meaning for 'upnp_enabled' configuration option. Its now set to 'true'
  • by default and if you set this to 'false' and run rygel, you can still stream
  • media (currently only over HTTP) from it.
  • Add option to disable UPnP to all configuration sources.
  • Environment variables for boolean options now follow general unix conventions.
  • Localization:
  • New partial translation for Afrikaans (af).

New in version 0.9.5 (January 11th, 2011)

  • Only advertize searchable containers as such.
  • Do not execute search in non-searchable containers.
  • Only refuse to advertise a transcoder for an item if it's DLNA profile is the same as that of the item in question.
  • Don't wait for new item if its already available under the container.
  • Add timeouts to container update waiting code.
  • Sort in ascending order by default. I had gotten the idea of ascending and descending reversed in my head so ended-up sorting by title in wrong order.
  • Empty sort criteria in browse/search requests means no sort criteria.
  • Use shorter HTTP URLs.
  • Add support for search of media containers by their child count.
  • Delay addition of child containers to actual (exposed) hierarchy until they produce some offspring. Very often it happens that we don't have enough metadata available to populate our hierarchies and we end-up exposing empty containers. Not only its contrary to user's expectations but apparently DLNA CTT isn't able to digest them.
  • Move magic '@ADDRESS@' substitution from external plugin to core so all plugins can use it.
  • If the root container of a MediaServer plugin is empty, deactivate the plugin until the situation changes.
  • Tracker:
  • Add title-based hierarchies: One container for each unique starting character of all the titles available for the contegory in question.
  • Add "New" container: Under each category container, add a child container that lists all items of that category that were added (to tracker-store) less than 3 days ago.
  • Use property function for sorting. Tracker claims to be more efficient when using property functions instead of variables.
  • MediaExport:
  • More reliable fallback extraction.
  • Speed-up browse and search handling.
  • Localization:
  • Add Vietnamese translation.
  • Update Slovenian translation.
  • Update Norwegian bokmål translation.
  • Update Estonian translation.
  • Update Hebrew translation.
  • Update Spanish translation.
  • Update UG translation.

  • Unique short commandline argument for disabling WMV transcoding.
  • MediaExport:
  • Export media even if metadata extraction fails for it.
  • Improved debug log.
  • Localization:
  • Add Catalan (Valencian) translation.

  • Update British English translation.

New in version 0.9.2 (November 9th, 2010)

  • Add support for destruction of media objects.
  • Implement DLNA's 'auto-destroy' requirement.
  • Set dlnaManaged attribute on DIDL-Lite objects. This along with some other recent changes, allows us to pass the following DLNA CTT testcases:
  • 7.3.118.2,3
  • 7.3.121.1
  • 7.3.139.1
  • Sort Search and Browse results alphabetically (in descending order) by title when no sorting criteria is specified by the client.
  • Use URI when provided in item creation requests.
  • There is no need to actually create the file for new items. The file will automatically be created when/if contents are copied to the new empy item.
  • Only allow pushing content to our own items that are place-holder (empty).
  • Remove redundant call to Gst.init().
  • Unique short commandline argument for disabling WMV transcoding.
  • Make use of new gupnp-av APIs.
  • Port to vala 0.11.1 and 0.11.2.
  • Tracker:
  • Tracker keeps the size set by us originally even after the size changes. A simple work-around is to just not set the size if its an empty file.
  • Save title when adding item to store.
  • Update container upon item addition.
  • MediaExport:
  • Export media even if metadata extraction fails for it.
  • Improved debug log.
  • MPRIS:
  • Fix service destination.
  • Localization:

  • Require gupnp-av & gupnp-vala >= 0.7.0.

New in version 0.8.2 (October 19th, 2010)

  • Don't assume user's config folder to be present everywhere. This assumption is only true for modern (free)desktops and fails us badly on headless machines.
  • Destroy the device list before quiting main loop. For some reason, the SSDP 'BYE' message doesn't get sent out for all devices before rygel exits. This change makes sending of these packet a lot more (could actually be 100%) reliable.
  • Tracker:
  • Make sure we only expose items that are either explicity marked to be shared over UPnP network or not marked at all.
  • Assume UPnP-created items to be shared. We create items on demand from UPnP clients so its logical to assume that the client would want it to be available on the UPnP network immediately after their creation.
  • URI escape metadata titles for IDs to correctly handle titles that have charachters like ',' and ':' in them.
  • Some non-functional changes.
  • MediaExport:
  • Proper default values for item metdata. This fixes the misterious "0" Album and Artist on XBox.
  • Handle requests for audio and image item types, not just music and pictures.
  • Localization:
  • Add Italian translation.
  • Add Catalan translation.
  • Add Hebrew translation.
  • Update Estonian translation.

  • Custom rule to remove .stamp files to enforce rebuild from vala sources.
  • Tracker:
  • Make sure we only expose items that are either explicity marked to be shared
  • over UPnP network or not marked at all.
  • Assume UPnP-created items to be shared. We create items on demand from UPnP
  • clients so its logical to assume that the client would want it to be

  • Accept-Ranges and Content-Range headers to response. This fixes picture browsing on XBox 360 (again).
  • Don't put empty nodes in device description.
  • Use '\r\n' instead of '\n' in XML files. Some UPnP devices in the market are apparently unable to handle the unix EOL character so we better provide the

New in version 0.7.7 (August 31st, 2010)

  • Add manpages for rygel and rygel.conf.
  • Add support for search by album and artist.
  • Don't advertize support for search by '@refID' as we don't really support and use it at all.
  • Drop support for search by 'res' and 'res@protocolInfo'. Since we didn't handle proxy and transcoding resources this gave wrong impression to the clients and was causing rygel to fail DLNA test cases.
  • Don't error out on empty search results.
  • Error out on HTTP request for invalid transfer mode.
  • Fix typo in serialization of "upnp:createClass".
  • Caseinsensitive string comparisons.
  • 'TransferIDs' state variable should list IDs for all transfers we have, even the ones that are complete.
  • Correct sending of error to client when import of resource fails.
  • Make sure we don't make invalid comparisons during the search.
  • Do not set the 'spflag' as we never really are the clock source for the content, even in case of live/transcoded streams.
  • Add MPRIS2 plugin. This plugin turns any media player that implements MPRIS2[1] DBus interface into a UPnP MediaRenderer.
  • MediaExport:
  • Don't forget containers in children count.
  • Fix handling of "exists" operator in search.
  • Add m4v, m4a and png to list of file extensions to entertain.

  • Advertize byte-seek support for thumbnails.
  • Correct algorithm to decide whether to seek or not.
