Are you serious. I just got into MediaMonkey and I seem to enjoy it. I really hope this post is not true.

it would be nice to have some animations (transition effects) like in chrome and ff4 for example.

I made a post in the wishlist about that where you can see some samples of animations in video.
Here it is: ... =4&t=53008

What do you think?
I think it depends, the animations are nice in chrome but in ff4 they just make firefox seem laggy.
Yes they're laggy in ff4. I agree.
Chrome has the best ones for sure.

.Firefox 4 has improved the tab animations recently. It's smooth now.

.One thing that chrome still makes better tho:
The close button on the tabs stays under the mouse pointer when you close a lot of tabs.
Very Handy!

i can not understand all the members not wanting to wait until its done it seems like they don't care about the quailty?
or maybe they don't understand the times needed to make the updates?

1 program version is relased as stable
2 users of programs on different systems find same errors on all systems and errors are not all caused by the same thing.
3 users report bugs to the developers with as much info about their system as they know, the developers start working on them to get the bugs fixed.
4 each developer does the bugs they are most able to fix, they attempt to fix the bug by either hunt and search for other program developers forums for most likely error, or they do trial and error code fixes which could take up to a week to fix it some times longer depending on how hard the bug is to locate.
5 the developers get together and hash out the errors when they can and then send the updated code to the main developers for adding it in to the main program.
6 the main developer has to then check the program one update at a time to see if the update caused any other errors.
and if it is being messed with by any other of the updated codes, if so then they have to fix that new error or make the new updates play nice with each other. and that might take up a couple of months to get all that worked out.
7 then they release the update patch.
8 users find more errors now in the updated version and they start the process over again to fix them.
9 making a new version of the program throughs a hammer in the routine and now they have to add more time to fix
the errors found in the new version along with the patches for the old version they were updating.
10 now the OP system companys through in their hammers which is to change things in the op's for the desktops, laptops, or other hand held devices, which makes more errors in the program and causes about 3 more months to find all those they can and fix them before they release the new stable version of the program.

so it is as you can see NOT a FAST or easy fix. the developers would love to have it all fixed in one night. but that is not possible with all the above hammers being tossed in to play. :(

now mediamonkey with the developers in different countrys has the most ideal situation for they can cover tons of code errors all day with each of them being up at different times. so that makes mediamonkey the fastest updated and upgraded program i've seen as in a world wide used program. but it still takes some time, also because the developers are not machines they have lives they have to live too going to work or college or other personel issues they have to deal with.
they can not sit in the chair and do coding 24 hours a day. some also like to take vacations and go someplace where they can not think about coding in order to clear their head. tin foil only works for so long. and under the desk vacations arnt really that fun.

If all goes well we are doing pre Alpha bug verifications on version 1318 so we are getting closer and closer.

1 month was recently mentioned, but that could slip as well.

Can't wait for MM4 either. Any updates on when it is coming out?

Can't wait to try MM4!! :D

Actually MM has lots of improvements it even surprised me how things are faster than they was in 1314 build.

I must say with each build I more and more see MediaMonkey in its full glory.

Well Songbird does have some features that MM3 lacks at the moment.
So as it is now.
Basically Mediamonkey has a better library management.
While Songbird has a better web integration and a nicer feel.

But it seems MM4 will make the best of both worlds.
So keep an eye on MM. It might surprise you :wink:

We're all listening to our music. You don't have to wait for MM4. I'm looking forward to it, but in the meantime I am quite pleased with MM3.
On the other hand, I'm glad you have found a music manager that suits your tastes. That is why we have choices. This is why your initial comment seems a bit like trolling. And I think everyone was thinking exactly what Nohitter wrote.
Good luck to you.

Heh, nice try.

Make all the snide remarks you like. Make lots of 'em. You need to kill a lot of time waiting for MM 4 to show up.

Me - I'm out of here. Listening to my music on Songbird.

But since I found Songbird, who cares. Take all the time you like. :lol:
And you still visit the MM forum. Sounds like you're really satisfied with Songbird :wink:
