Jaikoz 11.5 Radiohead released May 11th 2022

Jaikoz 11.5 Radiohead released May 11th 2022

This release concentrates on three major improvements

MacOS M1 Build
We now have a native download for the new MacOS computers with the M1 Arm cpu instead of the Intel cpu. Jaikoz should now run significantly faster on these computers because it no longer needs to use Rosetta 2 emulation.

But please note there is not currently a single universal build, make sure you use the correct link on the download page, there is one link for Intel and one for M1

iTunes/Macos Music App Integration
We have completely rewritten the integration that allows Jaikoz to update your iTunes /Music app library when you make changes from Jaikoz. For MacOS we now use a new library do this, and for Windows we have rewritten it so the integration works much the same way for MacOS and Windows. This complete overhaul fixes a number of issues and make the integration more reliable.

Move to Java 17
In this release we move from Java 14 to Java 17, this fixes a number of issues on MacOS user interface and means we are now using the current version of Java that is provided with Long Term Support. Unfortunately Java 17 is not supported on MacOS El Capitan (10.11) or earlier so this version of Jaikoz is only compatible with MacOS Sierra (10.12) and later.

Other Improvements
Also we improve multi-disc matching because scoring was incorrectly using contiguous trackno rather than discno/trackno, and there are further improvements to the Dark and Light modes.

too bad that it was not made in this release

Move “View Audio” Window to the View Pane

Add View Audio back to View tab ( I removed when added to Edit because I couldn’t see need for it as it doesn’t change) so would then be visible in both View and Edit tab.

Probably next release, but sorry I think only an issue for you.

Just re-released for Windows/Linux because of a serious file/folder renaming bug so sorry if you have already installed for these platforms need to read Crash On Attempt To Correct Subfolders/ Does Not Save Changes
