– Full support for iOS 6
– Full support for Subsonic 4.7
– Video streaming! Now you can stream videos from your Subsonic server (requires Subsonic 4.7 or higher)
– Rewritten audio engine to fix various playback issues that have been reported
– Fix for song cache disappearing when you device fills up when not using iSub
– Now more accessible for people with impaired vision! Better support for Voice Over, which will continue to be improved going forward.
– Too many other small fixes to list
iSub plans for the future
Now that this update is done, that means that the iSub 4 work can begin! As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, iSub 4 is a complete re-imagining of the iSub experience, and will be a huge step forward from the iSub we all know and (hopefully) love.
Some of you may be asking how that update will ever be released if it took so long to finish a simple bug fix update.
Well first, this update, though not packed with new features, was actually a large undertaking. Almost simultaneously, major updates to Subsonic, the iPhone, and the iOS operating system were released that all required attention, in addition to the tasks scheduled for this release.
In addition, I’m currently the sole developer working on iSub, and unlike in previous years, I no longer get to focus all of my time on iSub. However, starting in January, I’ll have the part time help of two awesome developers I’ve been working with on and off for the past year on other projects. Between the three of us, we’ll be doing one full time person’s worth of hours, but we get the benefit of being 3 separate brains. That means we get to brainstorm solutions to issues much faster than I could do alone, and we get to proof each others work.
What that means is that iSub development is going to get a blast forward starting in January, that should help get the iSub 4 update to you guys faster than I ever could have alone. Also, in addition, we’ll be working on some other cool stuff that I can’t talk about yet.
Thanks again to everyone for the support and kind words as I keep working to make iSub the best media player for iOS!
