    We are fast approaching the Alpha release of MP 1.3.0! To further enhance the stability of our product, we now include only changes that have been fully tested and documented.

    This means that our developers post threads in the Area 51 section of the forum - depending on the scale of the change, you can download either a full installer, or binary files for testing.
    So the community plays a very big role in the process of determining which changes will be included in a release and which will not - because you can now test every single feature during its development!

    We have set 18 May 2012 as the deadline for changes to be finalized and merged with the master of our GIT repository.
    The release of 1.3.0 Alpha is then planned for 14 days later.

    So head over to Area 51, and help us testing. The more testing these changes receive, the higher the chances are that you will see them included in 1.3.0, and the faster development will proceed to the final release.

    ------- Update 25.05.2012 -------

    Sadly the release of 1.3.0 Alpha has to be delayed because there were some larger complications when merging the (big) branches.
    Getting everything into a working state requires additional efforts from our developers.

    But as soon as we have a build ready, we will make it available for pre-release testing in Area51. :)

    Brilliant News I.L, thanks for the update!

    I suppose 1.2.3 and 1.3.0 will be fairly close then!

    Would it be possible to provide a list of the Area-51 modifications that will be included within MP1.3.0 (or is it all of them)?

    Thanks

    Only those that get "finished" before the deadline will get into 1.3.0 Alpha. We won't delay the release for a specific feature.
    So it is up to the community to help with the testing in order to get the changes done in time. ;)

    Go, Go, Go! The ball is rolling but where does it roll depends now on the community. There are lot of things to be tested.

    I don't know much about the git hub etc, so I have what I hope will be a simple question.

    Is it possible to install more than one of the Area-51 patch at a time? Is there any risk that installing one patch on top of another might break the first patch?

    I was always told there is no such thing as a stupid question (that is my excuse and I am sticking with it!)

    Unless you are compiling the code yourself this is not possible.

    One fix could quite easily break another which is why we will only take finished code then combine and test how they integrate with each other

    Sorry, maybe I'm off topic.
    Is already decided what to include in 1.3.0?
    There were some ideas and patches made by mm135200 that could be included and were postponed to 1.3.0 (Mostly about rewriting radio part)
    For example look here: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/posts/800922/
    This patch cannot be included in the upcoming 1.2.3, as is said here: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/pre-testing-of-mediaportal-1-2-3.106441/
    Also look this thread: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/now-that-beta-is-out-lets-improve-radio.95900/
    How to include all that in 1.3.0?
    Thank you,
    sdf
