Release Notes

New in this release

  • Playlist management: Add and remove tracks from existing playlists, or to a new playlist altogether. Accessible through the Blindspot context menu.
  • Added a shuffle mode, activated with alt+shift+h by default, or through the Blindspot context menu. When active and you pick a track from an album or playlist, all other tracks in the album or playlist will be inserted into your play queue in a random order.
  • Ability to choose which device Blindspot uses for playback. Selectable under the options dialog.
  • A skip unplayable tracks option, which will automatically skip over tracks that can't be played for whatever reason (akin to the behaviour in the main Spotify desktop client). Turned on by default, but can be toggled in the options dialog.
  • Added an add next in queue command (alt+shift+x by default), to add the currently selected track to play next.
  • Much more simplified playback code. Please let us know of any issues arising.
  • Created a what's new page and added a start menu item to take you to it.

Bug fixes in this release

  • Fixed a bug where Blindspot would not launch if the user launching the application wasn't the same as the one who installed it. Important for scenarios where people may have a separate administrator user for handling installs.
  • Fixed an issue with empty buffers and the home/end commands crashing the app

Note

This release makes some fundamental changes to the way we do playback. This should work fine for most people. But please let us know if you experience playback difficulties after upgrading. We will need any information you can give us on your hardware setup, to help us find any incompatibilities.

Reviews for this release

     
This new version works correctly and the new functionalities are very interesting. There is a problem: the key shorcut of the new capability ""shuffle" playback is the same shortcut used in the estable version 2.1 for the version of the application (alt + shift +h). In 2.2 can not view the version by keyboard. I am sorry for my bad level of english. I hope you can undestand my comment)
