Since the release of Väth – Airwave we have been working intensively on the following areas:
All reported issues from the first version of Väth are resolved. Thanks to all of you who have helped us in reporting issues!
A feature we have worked hard with is importing of Helium 11 databases (Sql Server Compact only at the moment).
This allows users to easily convert data from Helium 11 without loosing any information.
Support for importing of Sql Server and MySql databases if something we are working on at the moment.
Advanced tag editor
The first tagging tool in Väth is now ready in it’s first version.
The Advanced tag editor supports all fields which the same tool in Helium 11 does, but it adds a lot more flexibility to editing templates.
As an end user you can select how many columns the contents of a tab will contain as well as if a specific field should span over all columns.
Adding “blank” placeholders is also possible.
All this functionallity will give you a much more flexible templating engine to work with with superb support for different screen resolutions.
Editing of artist information
It is now possible to edit information for an artist just as in Helium 11. Edit everything for basic information, picture to various relations. It is now also possible for browse relations for an artist.
A first version of the new plug-in engine is now implemented. You can easily download artist information including picture using the Last.fm plug-in and pictures with the Last.fm plug-in and the new Spotify plug-in.
Parallell to the above, which will appear in our next official release (planned for mid-end October) we are working with:
- The Music Explorer.
- Support for creation and using SQL Server databases and MySQL databases.
- Improved Last.fm support – connect easily to Last.fm and scrobble your tracks.
Parallell to Väth we are also developing a brand new version of Helium Music Streamer. The new release will be much more in synch with how Helium Music Manager looks and works, so it will be easier to switch between the two.
We have big plans for the future of Helium Streamer (we will drop the “Music” in the name going forward) which includes support for tagging files, adding and removing files and more. We have already made several improvements compared to the old Streamer, for example the search is already improved and can show search results for artists, albums and tracks.
We plan on delivering a testable version of the Streamer at the same time as next release of Väth. In the meantime, here’s a screenshot of the current state:
