OMP Pre-Alpha 0.0.20: Mass Adding

Version 0.0.20 of OMP has been released!

OMP 0.0.20 adds two new main features! The first is adding of song files via command line. If you run omp <filename> the file(s) or folder(s) will be opened in OMP! If OMP is already running, the files are added to the open OMP instead. You can open multiple files and/or folders at the same time too! The other feature is opening song files from a file browser! Dragging support from a file browser will be added in a later version of OMP.


Final Thoughts About 0.0.20

Sorry about another release delay! I experienced some unexpected issues with opening more than one file in a file browser that caused them to be out of order. Solving that issue was harder than I expected. I’m just glad it’s out!


OMP Pre-Alpha Version 0.0.21: Next Update

For the next two weeks I will be working on OMP 0.0.21! There’s a few small things I will be working on:

  • Add support for having no keyboard shortcut set in the keyboard shortcuts for a specific shortcut.
  • I will be looking more into two minor bugs I just discovered.

Check the In Progress section of the OMP 0.1 Project Page for more details!


OMP Alpha Version 0.1: The First Alpha


I’m continuing to work hard towards releasing OMP’s first alpha build! OMP 0.1 will be released DECEMBER 30RD, 2018. Even more exciting is OFFICIAL UBUNTU SUPPORT is coming two weeks before the 0.1 release! That’s DECEMBER 16, 2018! You can see the full feature timeline on the Project Page for OMP Version 0.1. You can see when exactly each feature will be released there. There’s a To Do section, an In Progress section, a Finished and Awaiting Commit section, and a Complete section! There’s also a progress bar to help visualize how close I’m quickly getting to OMP’s first alpha version!


Final Thoughts


Thank you to my patrons who saw this post early! I hope you’re excited for 0.1 and 0.0.21! Thank you for your patience with this update! I appreciate everybody who cares about OMP! <3

Weekly News Update

This week I added support for running OMP with files from command line and I added support for opening files from a file browser with OMP. I’ll be working on code cleanup and finishing a few minor details of those two new features this next week before the release of 0.0.20.

Thanks for your support!

OMP Pre-Alpha 0.0.19: Rename Playlist Dialog

Version 0.0.19 of OMP has been released! The source can be found via the official OMP GitHub.


0.0.19 comes with one minor new feature called the playlist rename dialog. It will allow you to rename a playlist without using a playlist combobox! You can rename a playlist by double-clicking it’s name in the playlist view, by using the keyboard shortcut, or by clicking the Rename Playlist menu button in a playlist view’s menu!


Final Thoughts About 0.0.19 

This update only has a really small feature, but it’s something OMP has needed for a while and it was necessary for me to set aside some time to work out some issues with OMP’s code in order to implement renaming a playlist selectively rather than via a playlist combobox.

OMP Pre-Alpha Version 0.0.20: Next Update


For the next two weeks I will be adding support for opening files with OMP via command line and adding support for opening files in OMP via a file browser.
