In the new version 1.2, it is possible to individually organize songs and their playback order in playlists in Kaseto. Additionally, there were numerous bugfixes and performance optimizations.
To create a new playlist, simply select the songs and albums you want to add to the new playlist. As in other Windows programs, you can hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple albums or songs, or the Shift key to select a range of albums and songs at once. Afterwards, you can right-click to open the context menu and add the selection to a new or existing playlist.
If you click on a playlist in the navigation bar with the right mouse button, a context menu will open. There you can delete or rename a playlist.
Just like in “Current Playback”, audio files within a playlist can be rearranged by drag & drop to change the playback order.
Kaseto 1.1.1 fixes an error that occured sometimes when saving changes in the tag editor.
Kaseto 1.1 introduces a new menu item in the navigation bar: “Now Playing”. There you can see all songs that have been enqueued for playback. Songs can be reordered by drag and drop to change the order of playback. It is also possible to remove songs from the current playback via the remove action in the context menu, which can be opened by clicking the right mouse button on a single song or a selection of multiple songs.
In order to improve the clarity, the currently played song is marked with a small speaker icon in every view. If you open the context menu in Kaseto 1.1, all songs are highlighted in green, to which the context menu refers. This makes it clearer which songs are affected by the actions in the context menu.
Under Windows 10, Kaseto can now handle folders whose path is longer than 240 characters and files whose path is longer than 260 characters. This requires the .NET framework 4.6.2 or later to be installed. Windows usually installs the current version of the .NET framework automatically as an update.
The integrated full text search in Kaseto 1.1 can handle names that contain digits. For example, in previous versions of Kaseto you could not search for “1973” to find the song “1973” by James Blunt. This works finally with the newest version.
Furthermore there were several bug-fixes, which mainly concern the selection of multiple songs and updating after changes.
This week we received a Spanish translation. Of course, we have integrated it directly into Kaseto. Many thanks to Oswaldo for his great work! The current version of Kaseto 1.0.4 contains eight translations now.
Before version 1.0.4, it could happen that Kaseto stops loading the entire music collection, if one or more audio files are corrupted. Kaseto 1.0.4 can simply ignore such audio files and load all other audio files of the music collection.
With the translation into Polish, Kaseto is now available in seven languages. Thank you Zbyszek for the great translation! If you miss your language in Kaseto, you can easily translate Kaseto by yourself. We will be happy to send you a text file with all the texts that need to be translated including a small manual. Just drop us a note.
With version 1.0.3, Kaseto can be started under several user profiles at the same time. Windows 7 users can now listen to their music without any error messages when Aero Glass is disabled. Furthermore, images that are not compatible with GDI+ will no longer generate error messages.
Kaseto 1.0.2 is able to load audio files with corrupt embedded images by just ignoring such images. In addition, an error has been fixed that prevented the enqueuing of additional songs during random playback.
Kaseto 1.0.1 is able to load covers with invalid Exif data. Albums and songs are now automatically refreshed in the search when tags or files have been changed.
It’s already a year ago that the first preview version of Kaseto was released. The time has finally come to release Kaseto 1.0! The focus for version 1.0 was on stability and troubleshooting.
There are also some minor improvements. For example, covers can be exchanged in the tag editor via drag and drop. This works with both Windows Explorer and any browser. Simply drag the image file with the mouse onto the old cover.
Now Kaseto offers the possibility for installing updates automatically when closing the program. In the future, you will benefit directly and conveniently from new features! Automatic updates can be turned on and off in the settings.
For Kaseto 1.1, there are again plans for major new features, such as a sortable and modifiable list of all scheduled songs for playback.
