Rygel 0.4.2 (Thank God It's Friday, Again)

I always forget to announce the micro releases here. Here it is now:

Brief summary of changes since 0.4.1:

- Ability to specify verbosity of console messages by a number between 0 to 5.
- Be able to survive unavailability of D-Bus session bus. This should make it easier to setup Rygel on headless NAS machines.
- MediaExport:
 - Provide duration and date of media.
 - Improved guessing for type (UPnP class) of media.
 - Re-harvest metadata when a file/directory is modified.
 - Speed-up browsing (twice as before).
- rygel-preferences:
 - Fix enabling/disabling of widgets.
 - Copy the desktop file from correct location.
- Mediathek and GstLaunch disabled by default in the user configuration.
- Add GstLaunch to maemo configuration (disabled by default though).
- Put dbus-glib-1 to the list of vala API dependencies.
- Fix seek headers.
- Be more verbose at the end of configure.

Bugs fixed in this release:

596500 - Mpeg TS video files are mistaken for audio files
596213 - Wrong state for checkboxes
596327 - Enables some weird plugins by default
596330 - Missing some metadata

All contributors to this release:

Dear Coder:
Excuse me , I'm from Taiwan and I'm not good in English. I hope you can understand the question that what I want to explain.

We got a problem to use gupnp in php under windows system. And I have no idea for how to install glib-2.0, gssdp-1.0, libsoup-2.4 and gupnp under windows.

Would you please tell me how to use gupnp in windows or it can't use in windows yet ?

Sorry , I don't know to say thank you in English.But thank you a lot
Best regard

Hi Robert,

there is experimental support for windows available at my github repository. I put together a page explaining on how to compile gupnp et al on windows here:

This is based on msys 1.0.10, so some of the updates may not be necessary any more. Feel free to contagt me if you have any questions.
