From Rolf Brugger:
GiantDisc is a package of mp3 Jukebox software tools. It consists of Linux server scripts to manage and play mp3 tracks a Palm remote control application which allows to fully control the mp3 server. No screen or keyboard needs to be attached to the server. The software has been designed to easily manage thousands of mp3 tracks and it offers the possibility to record CDs and import/export mp3 tracks. The whole design makes entirely use of standard hardware and free software. Other features: FreeDB (CDDB) support, lyrics management, web interface.
enhanced TCP/IP communication support for Tungsten T. New communication mode TCP/IP keep-alive that uses a single socket for a full session instead of a socket for each client-server transaction (Thanks to Viktor for this contribution).
Almost full support for the FLAC audio format. Import of flac metadata (batch shell import and interactive palm import), recording/encoding CD's in flac format, syncing flac files between two GD servers.
Complete redesign of the search dialog: It is considerably more functional, and it should also be more intuitive to use than before.
More efficient database structure (indexes added to frequently used table columns, playtime stored in HEAP table)
New support for genres for albums. Genre for albums are calculated from the genres of their tracks. The album genre is the most specific genre that covers (including sub-genres) at least 60% of its tracks. The album genre is updated whenever a track genre is modified. The new section albums-by-genre has been added to the browse directory (Created by menu item update browse dir in the Palm client)
