I fully agree, the new engine is a massive step forward from the old one in MM3/4, no questions here.
I wasn't actually talking about that, though - let me rephrase the question. I wrote a .net library
, which allows external applications to connect to mediamonkey 5. A sample application using this library is a rainmeter plugin
which displays information about the currently playing song in MM5.
When writing the original version of the library I didn't really pay much attention to code quality, some of its dependencies aren't being developed anymore and need to be replaced, I wrote the thing before MM5 supported async calls which need to be implemented for performance reasons, etc.. Long story short, the project probably wouldn't pass a code review. That is why I'm thinking of rewriting it.
Hence the question - is the release versions of MM5 planned to still expose port 9222 or is this a alpha/beta thing only? Because if it won't I have to look for alternatives like WMI (which I try to avoid because it's only availale on windows).
