Release 20200602

Churning This small, but important, release includes some more improvements related to file scans, plus an important fix for anyone using UNC paths on Windows.

This release’s changes are:


  • Make sure directory “streams” are closed after they are traversed (avoids leaving too many files open on Linux based installations).
  • Consolidate scanning onto the same thread to avoid backpressure building, if updating compliancy take a long time.
  • Drop albums when/if backpressure does occur, to make sure we keep the scan running.

Other stuff

  • When a UNC path is used to specify the current music library, make sure current artwork can be displayed in the UI.
