The development version of Mizuu has come a long way, but one of the most demanding features has yet to be implemented. Yep, you guessed it – network support. I haven’t got any prior experience with networking from a code perspective, so this is pretty new to me and I’m learning every day. The beta version is currently capable of browsing your network shares, but I’ve had a few reports on issues with Windows and special NAS devices, so it’s not fully working yet.
I’ve mentioned it quite a few times before, but a lot of things have changed in Mizuu and I’ve been dying to show you guys.
I know I’ve promised a million times that the next version would have network support, and I’d rather not break my promise, but I’m uncertain of how long it’ll take to fully implement. I don’t want to keep everyone waiting, especially not if the majority of the users will never use network support. That essentially means that they’re waiting for nothing. Everything else is ready. The list of changes takes up 2½ pages in Word, so it’s quite a bit. Roughly 15,000 lines of code have been changed.
Therefore I ask – should I release what I’ve got so far? Or do you want to wait an uncertain amount of time for all the new changes + network support? Please let me know. It’ll be version 1.7.9 if I release it now.
