Surprise! Release Candidate 1

Hi Mixxx-heads,

Are you ready for a surprise?

The Mixxx 1.12 beta period has been going quite smoothly and we're almost ready to launch this baby. This release packs a punch. It's our single biggest release ever and adds more headline features than we've ever put in one release. We decided that it was time -- time to drop the "1.1" (it's cleaner):

Mixxx 1.12.0 will be... Mixxx 2.0!

We've been working towards this release for many years now. But we still need your help to make this our best ever.

We need your help translating and testing.

Today we're releasing Mixxx 2.0 Release Candidate 1. If all goes according to plan, we're going to get some more testing in from the community and have Mixxx 2.0 ready for all of your New Year's Eve parties!

Please help us out!

Available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Help Translate Mixxx
In order to make this release rock in every language we need your help with translations! This is the first release we are offering translations of the Mixxx manual in addition to the app itself. We are currently in dire need of translations for Spanish, Chinese and Japanese (among many other languages).
Check out our Transifex page and internationalization wiki for details on how to get started.

Call for Controller Presets
Support for MIDI/HID controllers is historically one of Mixxx's biggest weak points. If you have built a controller preset for a device, please consider submitting it for inclusion in Mixxx as a community-maintained preset! Check out the guide on our wiki for more details.

Bugs and Feedback
You can help improve Mixxx by reporting any bugs you find. Your feedback plays a crucial role in Mixxx's development cycle, and even filing a quick bug report makes an important contribution to the project. We want to hear from you! Please send us feedbackfile a bugwrite us an emailpost to the forums, or chat with us.

  1. If MusicBrainz lookup could write changes to the metadata on the file, it would be about perfect. LateNight Skin with cooler colors would be nice, yellow is kind of hot.

  2. After I updated to the new version (git5678) on Mac OSX 10.9.5 and rescanned library, a lot of often used mp3s are now listed under the category "Missing files" and are excluded from the search function. Why?? That's horrible! When I go back to the official 1.12 beta release (git5442) and load my backed up library files everything's fine!

  3. If anyone runs into the same problem as Max, the team is working through the issue here:

  4. Can't wait to upgrade and check it out. Congrats guys on getting close to stable release!
