XStudio Release Notes

Release notes include changes, enhancements and corrections by date and version number of XStudio. For information on less-recent changes and enhancements, see the Revision History.

Version - 01/23/2017

  1. Enhancement. When dragging a song from the music search dialog to the log, the song's intro time is now included, if available.

  2. Enhancement. When performing a music look-up to update the log, the intro time is updated, if available.

  3. Fix. Corrected a problem in audit reporting where XStudio would report an audio item as "CANCELED" if the item's Aux Mark was less than ½ second.
  4. Fix.Dragging a song from the music search dialog to the log did not work properly if the search dialog's display columns had been rearranged.

  5. Fix. Corrected a condition where XStudio would produce an exception when importing a music database and the contents of the release year field were invalid.

  6. Fix. Corrected a problem where a music import would fail if the source data file had records containing extraneous spaces at the beginning of a record.

Version - 06/08/2016

  1. Enhancement. A new task, Remote Start, has been added. You can use this task as a part of an Action assigned to a switcher Input Relay, for instance, to duplicate the functionality of the original game port remote starts. As availability of good-quality game ports, particularly USB types, seems to be diminishing, the Remote Start task may be a good alternative if you have a switcher with available, unused Input Relays.

  2. Enhancement. Importing of music data has be revised to include more information. Depending on the music scheduling system you are exporting your library from, XStudio now imports song run time (length), category, intro, ending, album, and release year. Note that some library exports do not include all of this new information and when not present in the source data, XStudio will leave the affected field blank. The additional information is visible as a default in the Music Maintenance area of the XStudio Automation Setup dialog. The Music Search Dialog as a default displays a subset of the additional fields and can be user-modified to display or hide fields of your choosing. If you update an older version of XStudio, the additional data is imported the first time an auto-update of the music data occurs or if you manually re-import the data in the Music Maintenance dialog.

  3. Enhancement. A new music export template for MusicMaster has been introduced. This template adds the fields Album and Year (typically Peak Year or Release Year) to the exported data. A sample template is included in the XStudio installation.

  4. Enhancement. Cart macro characters are now converted when dragging and dropping a log item directly onto a playback deck or into the Audio Clipboard, and when macro characters are used in a hot button. In all cases the macro characters are evaluated at the start of play.

  5. Enhancement. XStudio now detects Windows 10 and adjusts its display accordingly.

  6. Change. The underlying database engine has been updated to NexusDB version 4.

  7. Fix. When changing the Next-to-Play marker on the log, either user-directed or with a log directive, the display font settings for the old and new log Next-to-Play items were not updating immediately.

  8. Fix. The focused control would occasionally "disappear" when tabbing among fields in task dialogs.

  9. Fix. The Remap Input Relays task edit dialog has been updated to ensure the task description length is correct.

  10. Fix. The Music Data Auto-Update dialog has been updated to correct the tab order of controls.

  11. Fix. The Open Log dialog has been updated to ensure the "Busy" display doesn't disappear behind the main dialog when scanning for available log files.

  12. Fix. Corrected log validation error dialog typo.
