Mixxx 2.1 beta is coming 2017-12-22

Postby Be. » Sun Nov 19, 2017 12:33 am

We have finally decided to set a date to release Mixxx 2.1 beta on December 22, 2017. We are aiming to release Mixxx 2.1 after a 3 month beta period on 2018/3/31. Thereafter we will move to a 6 month release cycle.

If you would like to help us test before the beta release, refer to the wiki page on testing. We also need help updating the manual. We will finalize the English version of the manual by 2018/1/31 to leave 2 months for it to be translated before the 2.1 release.

We are still accepting pull requests for small changes until the beta release, but big new features that haven't been completed already will have to wait for Mixxx 2.2. To focus effort, we won't be reviewing controller mapping pull requests until the beta release. You are welcome to open pull requests for controller mappings to be included in 2.1 now, but they won't be reviewed for a few weeks.

Oooh very nice xmas pressie indeed. I have to say Mixxx is a blinding piece of software, as good as any of the big boys out there.

That's great news guys!

There are 2 requests I'm hoping for which are already logged under lauchpad bug tracker:1) multiple loops per track and 2) cue end (for auto DJ to stop the track at a predetermined point). If these aren't included in 2.1, is there a voting system or something like that to help them stand a better chance for the next version?

Thanks,

Steve.

Unfortunately neither of those will be included in 2.1. There has been some work towards mix in and mix out cues for AutoDJ, but it has stalled lately. You can "vote" for an issue on Launchpad by clicking "This bug affects [some number] people. Does this bug affect you?" at the top of the page, under the bug title.

Great news!
I've been playing with the 2.1 alpha in Linux for quite some time and I'm confident of it's stability with my setup.
Great work, keep it up!

Thanks for all the great work!
As a user of the deere skin I noticed that in the alfa releases the volume knob in the sampler section disappeared.
I'm running now the 6399 version witch is still compete and searched github and launcpad to draw some attention on this.
However I didnt find a way in the technical stuff, so I try to contact you in this way.
For me the samplers are useless without any way to contol the volume and the other skins lack the nice loopcontrol.
So I ask you a way to make enable the volume contol in the samplers again :-)

We currently have the issue that the skins take a long time to load and shut down with lots of samplers and every widget added to the samplers exacerbates this problem. We're trying to figure out how to deal with this.
