Release 20141119 - Yosemite support

The big improvement in this release is support for the latest version of Mac OS X, 10.10, codenamed "Yosemite". Yosemite no longer automatically downloads Java which means, before this release, you would have to select an appropriate version of Java, download and install yourself before running bliss.

To make this easier we now bundle a version of Java with bliss.

The downside of bundling Java is that the bliss download is a lot bigger! But once you have installed you can use in-app update to get around having to download a new version of Java with each release.

In addition...

Not much in this release for non-OS X users, but we do have...

  • OneMusicAPI is now used exclusively for fingerprinting and canonical artist lookup.
  • Fixed the "in progress" icon which wasn't showing in some browsers.

Downloading and installing

You can download from the downloads page. After you click through, installation instructions are available on the page following download.

If you are updating from a version older than a month or two, in app update is not recommended for this release, because of a fixed Java 8 incompatibility which is only resolved with a full re-installation.
