July 13, 2009
* Bongo now forces VLC to exit after finishing a track.
* `C-u RET' on a section header now starts playing
the section. To set the backend, use `C-u C-u RET'.
May 21, 2007
* New key bindings `S-<up>' and `S-<down>' (each with `M-'
and `C-M-' variants) change the volume.
* New key bindings `S-<right>' and `S-<left>' (with `M-'
and `C-M-' variants) fast-forward and rewind.
* The `f' and `b' keys have been switched with `F' and `B'.
Now use `f' or `b' to seek just one second. (This lets
you seek N seconds using `<N> f' or `<N> b'.)
* The <TAB> (`bongo-toggle-collapsed') command has been
moved to `$' to make room for a future <TAB> command.
* New command `H' (`bongo-list-buffers') brings up a list
of all Bongo buffers to ease switching between them.
* Giving a prefix argument to `h' (`bongo-switch-buffers')
now makes Bongo prompt for the buffer to switch to.
* Now <mouse-3> in Bongo buffers always brings up a context
menu (it used to do it on object lines only).
* Files with `.bongo' extensions are now treated as either
playlists or libraries according to the value of the user
option `bongo-prefer-library-buffers'.
* Switching to a Bongo mode from a non-fundamental,
non-Bongo mode now requires confirmation.
* New minor mode `bongo-dired-library-mode' lets you use
any Dired buffer as a Bongo library. The mode is enabled
automatically by the `d' (`bongo-dired-line') command.
May 15, 2007
* The `tree-from-tabs.rb' script has a new command line
option, `--hardlinks', which tells it to create hardlinks
instead of symbolic links.
May 11, 2007
* There is now a volume control mode line button. Click it
to open the volume control interface (as `v' would), or
use your mouse wheel on it to adjust the volume directly.
You should update the `volume' library to get the most
out of this feature. Mouse support was recently added.
May 6, 2007
* The keys `f' and `b' are now bound to seeking commands,
to go with the newly-introduced `F', `B', `M-F', etc.
The old `f' command (`bongo-flush-playlist') has been
moved to `~' (played tracks are "backups", in a sense).
* The command `C-c TAB' now sits on `C-c C-e' instead,
because of the symmetry with `C-c C-a'.
April 28, 2007
* The keys `F', `B', `M-F', `M-B', `C-M-F' and `C-M-B' are
now bound to immediate seeking commands, which provide
quicker ways of seeking (you no longer have to use `s').
The old `F' command has been moved to `R' (for "reset").
* Inline playback progress is now disabled by default,
because it slowed down seeking. To turn it back on,
customize `bongo-display-inline-playback-progress'.
* Left-clicking the arrow buttons in the mode line now
fast-forwards or rewinds instead of switching tracks ---
to switch tracks, use the right mouse button (`mouse-3').
* The arrow buttons will now only appear during playback
(leaving just the play button when playback is stopped).
To pick your own set of mode line buttons, customize the
variable `bongo-mode-line-indicator-format'.
April 27, 2007
* The keys in seek mode have changed a little. It used to
be that `f' and `b' each sought one second, while `M-f'
and `M-b' sought ten seconds. Here are the new keys:
- One second: `C-f', `C-b', `F', `B'
- Three seconds: `f', `b', `<left>', `<right>'
- Ten seconds: `M-f', `M-b', `M-<left>', `M-<right>'
- One minute: `C-M-f', `C-M-b'
Some other keys in this keymap changed as well, but I
don't think any of it is worth mentioning.
April 26, 2007
* Playback progress is now shown directly in the playlist
buffer using the `bongo-elapsed-track-part' face (which
by default looks like the `bongo-played-track' face).
* Track lengths are now displayed in playlist buffers.
You may want to customize `bongo-track-length-column' or
(to disable this feature) `bongo-display-track-lengths'.
[This feature is still rather experimental and probably
does not work the way we will ultimately want it to.]
April 11, 2007
* There is a new binding for playing stuff: `g'. It plays
the next N tracks, given a prefix argument N, or the
tracks in the region, if the region is active, or the
marked tracks, if any, or the track at point otherwise.
The `RET' command is unchanged; it still plays the track
under point, or the next N tracks with a prefix argument.
(Note that `RET' never plays, e.g., all marked tracks.)
April 10, 2007
* You may now bring up a context menu of useful commands by
right-clicking a track line or section header. Try it!
April 9, 2007
* Bongo now displays any metadata provided by streaming
media servers (such as what's currently being played).
This is enabled by default but only available for VLC.
April 5, 2007
* Bongo Sprinkle mode now sets `bongo-mark-played-tracks',
and the default value is now `nil' (it used to be `t').
Enabling Sprinkle mode sets it to `t' buffer-locally.
* Stopping a track being played using `C-c C-s' will now
not mark it as played; but `C-c C-n' and `C-c C-p' will.
April 4, 2007
* The new Bongo Sprinkle mode is an alternative to random
playback, based on the idea of automatically _enqueuing_
random tracks instead of playing tracks in random order.
To try it, run `M-x bongo-sprinkle-mode' in a playlist.
* The various commands beginning with `i' are no longer
bound to any keys. Instead, there is a general `i'
command for inserting files and directories, and another
command `I' for inserting special things. Unfortunately,
this currently includes URIs (use `I u RET').
* Commands that operate on the marked tracks now kill the
current marking after using it. Use `* y' to restore the
last marking, or `* k' to manually kill the current one.
Killing a marking discards the previously killed one ---
in the future, there might be a stack of killed markings.
The handy command `* *' toggles between some marking and
the blank marking by killing or yanking as appropriate.
Thus, `% m Dylan RET e * *' enqueues all tracks matching
the string "Dylan" and then restores the marking of them.
Typing `* *' another time gets rid of the marking again.
March 18, 2007
* You can now specify which backend to use for individual
tracks using `M-x bongo-set-backend-for-track'.
February 25, 2007
* The `M' command is gone. Use `- m' instead. (To do it
many times, `- m C-x z z z ...' is handy.)
* The `g' command is gone. Use `M-x bongo-redisplay'.
February 12, 2007
* Bongo is now able to display various kinds of icons.
It ships with a set of icons from the GNOME project.
See the following variables and their containing groups:
- `bongo-display-track-icons'
- `bongo-display-header-icons'
- `bongo-track-mark-icon-file-name'
February 8, 2007
* All backends now support pausing. Non-interactive backend
players are paused and resumed using SIGSTOP and SIGCONT.
In particular, this means that pausing and resuming is now
available for ogg123, speexdec, TiMidity and MikMod.
