After such long time i'd like to inform you about a new release of my Mp3 Player project JamP. Current version needs Java 6 at least to run. The Codebase is completly reviewed.

This release is only the start of reworking on the project after such long time, so expect updates in some time. Happy new Year to everone ...

I already posted the link to Multikulti my Open Source Internationalization Framework for Rich / Fat Clients and Applets in the german news section. Its beeing under heavy development these days as i currently working on the Editor which makes it possible to translate an application at runtime. For those who are concern in the project should take a closer look at the project website. See you soon....

1.9.2004 - still alive

..long time no news from me, let me explain what happen last weeks. Plans made are hard to combine with real life.

At first there was my mental hangeover (allread gone) in middle of June. Sun was shining and i was a lazy dude. After that the OpenGL fever catch me, i coded a small Demo-System to learn. I also think that there are no good Java demos avaible, all tests i made (together with olaf) showed that there is nothing for Java to hide in performance. May Nice release some demo in a few next months, i currently asked Teanuc and Skyrunner if they had interrest in making a demo. Ecplise and Hannes also showed interrests in demo making, and some new Coder may join....Topmost thing i made was research in 'how to improve JamP' to became a killer Appication. This will be done from now on. I will not yet post detailed infos about that...

The Skined-Playlist is half finished, i think this month it will be released, sorry for that long delay.

The Demo-Section will also updated next days, some will be replaced by new Assembly and other Party releases.

Stay Tuned ;)

20.5.2004 - last break (new Demos)

...i see the next weeks will not so much engaged with work since last, that enable me to work harder on the final release of JamP. The situation is a lot better now, i own a last year i code most features on the railway (I like this). The basic of the Skinedplaylist is done, some rendering issues still need to be fixed. Today the demo section is beeing updated with releases from Razor 1911 and Mfx & Kewlers...nothing more today..Just Stay Tuned :)

17.3.2004 - Spring feeling

Hi, with a small delay the new JamP is out now. The Firewall / Proxy support was improved. Connect to Internet Radio will no longer produce 'clicks' at start. Also i closed a memoryleak - the result is a much smaller memory usage of the Player. All 'Build In' Radio Stations were updated, also new were added.

I uploaded also two Desktop Wallpapers, made by Hannes Neumann avaible in the JamP Section.

I plan start to on work the Skinned Playlist this week. As this is one of the major things left to do, expect next update someday in April. Happy Sunshine to everone - Stay Tuned ;)

8.1.2004 - a look into the crystal ball - the year 2004

Today a overview of plans i have:

- This Site will move to a new server that provides me to render dynamic content. Also my webspace is a bit limited now.

- JamP will move to a 1.0 version, the Player itself is stable and runs on all focused platforms, so i will add the final features as planed. I try to realize this until summer this year.

- The Player gets some graphical redesign, a friend is currently working on it. Another friend sends a preview of a Jingle that will distributed with the player! I

- Actually i working on some comercial project that takes my time, so until end of Feb. i don't plan to work on the Player.

I hope to get all things done this year, Stay Tuned :)

..on top of headline. I never throught about such success. Thanks for tons of downloads so far. I keep on working - Stay Tuned :)

23.11.2003 - JamP 0.518 download avaible

The new JamP is avaible. Lots of new features finally reaches this new stable version and also the special editions. One major new feature is the Equalizer Function added. This enables you to controll the Audio Signal in the way you want. The Equalizer comes with build-in Audio Presents for usage on laptops or the next party and more.

The reason for the delay was that i had the knowlege to implement the Equalizer in middle september. But also a new window handler was implemented to bring docking functions for the Player Window and Equalizer Window. The Docking framework it currently in beta state. You can enable it from with in the preferences, also there can be configured how less space must be left to make the Windows snap together. The docking mechanism will be improved soon, to bring more usablility to the User.

For those that haven't looked into the last avaible Alpha version i listed most of the features added to the stable release in the actual Player section. Also you can take a look at the Screenshots i provide there. You will regonize that lots of things were improved or more usable now.

Since the publication in the Swing Sights at Sun, the Project got so much response, i never thought about so much people would like it. So first i was a bit shocked - then i start thinking again what to do next to push the project to the max. Most of the result gone into this release. Also I plan some cooperation with the internet radio next. More on this will follow soon. Please give me your feedback as done before - Stay Tuned ;)

12.9.2003 - JamP 0.518 rc 1 avaible

The avaible release canidate brings lots of innovations and improvements.

I reviewed the complete code, also bigger parts were recoded as the Skin Loading. I tested jamp against 70 winamp 2.x skins. Only one skin messed up! The Menu on the Player window got a new look, also the Skin Menu is complete recoded, and synchronized with the Skin Browser. I made lots improvements to support most plattform, including Macintosh. I got much feedback last weeks from Macinitosh users that the Player was looking crap on Mac OSX. I fixed this display problems with this release canidate by using the default look Mac OSX provides for Java. You can switch the look from within the preferences dialog under "Look and Feel". Many thanks to Thierry Janaudy for his feedback to get JamP running on Mac.

In the Skin Menu the 'defaut' skin' is now avaible, this is usefull for users running a special Edition. Also no more 'flying Windows' are visible, the player got the original feeling now. Thanks to Olaf Kliche for his statement about this. The 'build in' Internet Radios were updated, 39 radios are avaible. The radiolist contains all from Jazz to Classic, from Tekkno to Trance, and more.

Avaible are all known issues about the Player. Also the whole JamP section is avaible in english, just click on the flag to switch between german and english. If you found some bug or whatever, please let me know.

So, it was again hard work to get there, hope you like the Player....Stay Tuned :)
