Release 20200212

Frustrated Last week’s build was going to be a sedate affair - open a Terminal, cd build, run the build and the new version of bliss pops out the other end…

Unfortunately Apple had another change to notarization stored up (that I was not aware of) and so cue two full days of code signing, friggin’ about and testing notarization…

But I got there eventually, so this release comprises final work on macOS notarization and a bunch of other small-ish improvements.

New Inbox

  • If an album has been deleted during fix-all, don’t try to look it up for more fixes later.
  • Don’t listen for scroll events in the Inbox for rows we don’t care about regarding the back/forward button.
  • Change the page title to just “Inbox”.
  • If there are no problems, grey out the fix-all buttons.
  • Remove the “Recently fixed albums” collapse chevron.
  • Some work to make it less likely that “scanning” blank slates are not replaced with others such as “everything is fixed” too early.


  • Avoid chat widget overlaying the “skip” link.
  • Disable double clicks on the “Scan library” button.

Other stuff

A few other small improvements…

  • Add version numbers to the Mac build.
  • System tray “albums” shortcut should take you to “Albums” - changed “Inbox” to “Home”.
  • Discs should follow natural numeric ordering (rather than alphabetic ordering - 1, 10, 11, 2 etc).
  • Avoid out-of-memory errors when dumping the lookup data.
  • The new licence popup shows the correct icon for success.
  • The licence popup shows for errors, with details of the error.
  • The licence popup colours are now more in keeping with the rest of the app.
  • When manually updating, remove file metadata (e.g. last modified, size) between versions.
