  • Holding down shift while opening a menu - with both context and main menu - will bring up menu commands that are normally hidden, so you no longer need to go through the preferences page to access obscure commands that are hidden by default.
  • Reworked Preferences
  • Various standard Preferences pages have been reworked. The Preferences dialog now has OK, Apply and Cancel buttons. Existing components need to be updated to utilize the new Preferences functionality.
  • New Edit Menu behavior
  • With Default User Interface, the Edit Menu commands operate on currently selected items, not just on the currently active playlist. This allows - for an example - to use the Copy command on Album List selection.
  • This feature currently does not work with third party user interfaces - Edit Menu commands operate on the active playlist just like in old foobar2000 versions; relevant components will need to be updated to comply.

  • You can now set custom filename patterns and paths for front cover, back cover, artist and disc artwork. You also have the ability to set a stub image for each of these.
  • New configuration file format
  • Configuration of individual components is now stored in separate files. Reading of old configuration files is still supported so your settings will be preserved while upgrading from older versions; however you will not be able to downgrade back to older 0.9.x releases without losing your settings.

  • Buggy third party components are no longer required to play ASX/MMS/RTSP streams. It's recommended to uninstall relevant components.

Veranderingen voor v0.9.5.6 - v0.9.6

  • New installer options
  • Foobar2000 can now be installed in two modes: standard and portable.
  • Standard mode
  • Standard mode is similar to the “install for all users” option in older versions. You need administrative privileges to install foobar2000 in this mode.
  • Portable mode
  • Installing in portable mode only extracts the installer content and creates additional files that tell foobar2000 to store any configuration data in its installation folder as well as not to alter the Windows registry. Note that it is not possible to edit file type associations with foobar2000 when using portable mode, as that would require changes in the registry.
  • Media Library behavior changes
  • Folder watching
  • Unlike all previous versions, the Media Library now automatically tracks changes made to the content of your Media Library folders. It is no longer necessary or even possible to manually remove dead items or refresh the content of the Media Library.
  • Wine incompatibility
  • At the time this article is being written, the foobar2000 0.9.6 Media Library does not work correctly in Wine because of bugs/limitations in Wine itself. Changes in the Media Library folders may not be noticed by foobar2000 until it is restarted.
  • Hidden and system files
  • The Media Library now respects hidden and system flags; files or folders with those flags will be ignored. This can be used to selectively hide cuesheets or files referenced by cuesheets.
  • Limited compatibility with outdated components on Windows Vista
  • To permanently address the “bad allocation” bug present in very old versions of the foobar2000 SDK (released before 2006-07-30), foobar2000 now refuses to load components built with affected SDK versions when running on Windows Vista. Affected components can be fixed by just recompiling them with an updated version of the foobar2000 SDK.
  • Cuesheets in added folders ignored by default
  • In recent years it has become a popular trend to include cuesheet files with albums in various music trading communities. Such files introduced behaviors confusing to new foobar2000 users: each track of the album was listed twice. To address this issue, cuesheets are now ignored by default when adding entire folders as well as in the Media Library. You can change this in Preferences ? General and Preferences ? Media Library.
  • Built-in Matroska support
  • You should uninstall any third-party Matroska related components before using foobar2000 0.9.6, having them installed will only cripple the functionality.
