The beta version is getting along very nicely and almost all features have now been implemented. Only a few features are missing, and I’ll be adding those in the coming weeks. Once that’s done, well – then there’s finally a new stable release update for Mizuu.
As you know it’s been a complete re-write of the application, and a lot of things have been changed and improved. Movies and TV shows are a lot better now and include many more details. This brings me to an important point…
When the update get released and you update Mizuu on your device, you’d expect it to keep your library intact. While this is definitely possible, it’s something I’ve decided not to do. The main reason for this decision is that it means there’ll be a lot of information and details that you’ll the missing. The updated application has ways to show many more details and that data simply isn’t available with the old version.
Besides, the library update process is significantly faster with the new version, so I won’t imagine it’ll be much of a problem.
Next beta update
It should be available later this week. It’ll include
the option of manually identifying TV show episodes / files that were unable to be identified. (Delayed to the one after this).
It’ll also add an option of changing movie collection cover art, an option to sort TV shows by the newest episode from each show, and it’ll fix a few issues with the on-device databases and Reddit Videos.
