    Hi guys,
    I just wanted to let you know that the LMS 7.9 was released yesterday (again, huge thanks to mherger for the great work). We implemented it in our current beta and it already works with the Max2Play OS!

    If you want to install this version, first make the beta update in our Settings/Reboot menu. Then, head to the Squeezebox Server menu and the selection will be have added the version 7.9 to install.

    Here are some of changes that come with this version:

    More flexible access to your beloved music collection:
    *Customizable browse modes
    *Direct access to other source (LMS or UPnP)
    *Playback of local tunes without adding them to the library
    *Filtered views

    User interface improvements:
    * Fast live search in the web UI
    * Full text search: type the track name, find the album(s) it’s on etc.
    * Play music which is not on your LMS system by dragging the music files to the web UI

    Scanner improvements
    * Allow browsing your music folder while the scanner is running
    * Don’t stop the music when running a full wipe & rescan
    * Increased scanning speed, in particular with larger collections

    Miscellaneous improvements
    * „Don’t Stop The Music“: automatically continue the music listening when your playlist comes to an end
    * Improved support for streaming from https resources
    * Improved overall performances
    * Tons of bug fixes

    For a full list of all changes, head to the Change Log

    Hello Heiner,

    Squeezebox is updated to 7.9.2, it seems. – is it possible to get this version on Max2play?

    When I try to install latest nightly 7.9 all.deb package, it fails.

    7.9.1 is OK, but I would like to try the new features 🙂

    Hi Lars,

    Thanks for asking, you can actually always install a new version of the Squeezebox Server if its compatible with our Raspbian (stretch with 4.19 kernel at the moment) and in the .deb format.

    The 7.9.2 is still in the beta folder at the slimdevices ressources and I cannot find an official release thread in the forums either. So I think it’s still not officially out. However, you can try installing the new version by pasting the link in our installer in the web interface. Make sure you give the installer a lot of time (ca 15 minutes) to ensure it installs correctly. I check and this link worked for me with the newest version of Max2Play (2.48 image): Link

    I have already tried this link.
    It downloads the image, but after a couple of seconds it says ‚lms version does not excist‘, and the old version remains.
    It is not a big problem , I can wait for the official release.
    Thanks for answering.

    Odd, as I said it worked for me with a new test image (you have to wait a bit longer than usual).
