30 steps closer to stable


A new upgrade to the beta has been released. It fixes 30 issues that has been found which we needed to fix before going stable.

Among the highlights are a few crashes that has been addressed, Stoffi will now properly ignore tracks in the Recycle Bin and Stoffi will now display an error message if you try to add a folder that has already been added to the collection.

If you are already running Stoffi make sure to upgrade it to the latest version, and if you have not yet tried our awesome music player hurry and download it.

Help us find the last bugs so we can declare Stoffi as stable!

Making Stoffi


As Stoffi moves toward its first stable release I thought it might be a good idea to look back on all the work that has been done during the last 10 months.

This video was generated with gource and is a visualization of all the commits that has been made to the Stoffi repository on our Google Project website. Each file is a dot and each folder is a line. Any change to a file is marked by a yellow "beam" coming from the developer that made the change. Additions are green and deletions are red.

The video will skip long periods of time when nothing is happening so you don't get too bored watching it.

A new release and a new member


My name is Mark, and I'm a new member of the programming team for Stoffi Music Player. Currently I am at my first year in the University and studying computing science. My reasons (besides getting a big paycheck) is because I find programming to satisfy my problem solving needs, or in other words: I like it! Not that it's the only thing I ever do in life. I also enjoy playing computer games, reading books/comics and playing boardgames.

So, Stoffi. I came to be involved in this project by huge coincidence. To make a long story short: I just happened to meet Ephracis through school when he actually studies at home most of the time. Anyway, I'm really excited about Stoffi, not only because it's a really great music player (now that is, it's going to get a lot more awesome later on) and because it's really fun a fun project to be a part of, but also because it helps me to expand on my programming skills.

As said, Stoffi is a great music player, and it's still growing! Over these next months and years we're going to implement new features to make it into something that will give you a really enjoyable music playing experience!

I am also proud to announce the latest beta release which fixes a number of bugs and brings us one step closer to the stable release of Stoffi. Check it out and continue to find bugs for us. I hope that we will be able to release the stable version very soon.

See you peeps later!
