Today we relaunch the Orange Squeeze beta program with a seemingly small, but important update.
2.2.0-beta1 simply adds notification controls, but there are many underlying changes to support this so it has been made a beta release. Check this link for more information about the beta program.
In related news, 2.1.11 is now/still the stable version of Orange Squeeze.
As always, check this link for complete release notes for beta and non-beta releases.
If you haven't upgraded in awhile, you'll see some a visual refresh and plenty of little bug fixes. More importantly for some, it also fixes compatibility with mysqueezebox.com on modern Android devices. You can read about all of the changes in the complete changelog.
We've been slowly staging builds for the past few weeks but that effort is mostly completed and now work will shift to the long-idle 'preview' branch, which will be available as an opt-in beta at some time in the future. We appreciated the feedback as we worked through a backlog to get the production version of the app stable on modern devices.
This release is available for Android 4.1 and higher, however the stores will still distribute older releases to older devices, as appropriate.
Over the past two weeks we've been staging rollouts of versions of Orange Squeeze 2.1.3, with version 2.1.3-5 released today to Google Play. This is an effort to bring the app back into compliance with modern Android versions including the upcoming Android O (Orange?). The release is stabilizing so it should be available to everyone soon on Google Play and Amazon.
Work continues separately on the beta version of Orange Squeeze that was previously shelved. More information to come on this once we get 2.1.3 wrapped up.
For a three-week period Orange Squeeze was removed from Google Play and Amazon appstores, but it is back up now. Thank you for your patience.
