Songbird Note

For anyone wondering why Songbird Portable isn't out yet, I thought I'd give you an update. The majority of the code is complete for it, however we are still sorting out code to change drive letters in the SQLite database.

Okay, everyone happy? Now, stop bugging me Blum

Thanks Ryan, you just freed

Thanks Ryan, you just freed up a bunch of my time by posting this. I was about to set up a hostile takeover of the Songbird Portable project with a few other members...ok I really wasn't, I'm glad to hear its almost read, looking forward to the release Smile

yeah i was thinking some

yeah i was thinking some verbal exchange would take place....we'd criticize him for not posting anything about it, and then say "pretty please can one of us take over the project?"

was imagining a commando style raid on Ryan's house to take his hard disk and USB drive, far more of a hostile takeover Smile

Extra relieved

Hmm, extra relieved at this note. Songbird is an app I have been eagerly waiting for (Zune & iPod).

Now, on a sidenote, does "We" in your note mean the Songbird team?

Hmm...

I was just thinking. Most of my apps that I worked on with the author of the app turned out not so good.

Newb

Hi,

Let me introduce myself, I'm a newb on PortableApps and since today on Songbird.
The apps made me very enthusiastic since I am a consultant and constantly changing my workplace.

I'll follow the posts.

Greetz,

Hello, I'm an trainee in an

Hello,

I'm an trainee in an italian company and I'm working on a portable songbird too.
I had a lot of problems trying to set the "application data" directory, searching deeply into Songbird sources I found that the directory is set in this file, I'm wondering if I should rebuild entire songbird to make the portable version work.
I'm working on a Mac version of this portable software (but I need it for Windows platform too) and I'm asking if I could help you on this, if you want you could send me the sources you're working on, I'll be glad to be a betatester/co-developer.

Sorry for my buggy english, 21.

Hello,

I succesfully put sb on usb-key for windows, using the "-profile" option and creating the file "user.js" (in which I put the relative path to the library db). It seems to work on any windows pc. I think I'll look for Ryan on the sb irc channel.

Sorry for my buggy english, 21.

Ryan, just letting you know, Songbird 0.6 is now out. i'm sure you're busy with your school stuff but i thought i'd mention it in case you were still working on 0.5

Is it possible to get an update on this? Also will add-ons for songbird cause any reg keys to be crated?

Sure.

Sorry I'm a bit late, but here's where I'm at:
I've finished the launcher and it works. I need to upgrade to Songbird 0.6, which involves a few changes. I also need to do the AppInfo and help.html, but then I'll be ready for a public prerelease.

Thanks Smile

I think you'll have quite a few dozen testers within the first 48 hours.
