v18.3.1: More fields now sync to CLZ Cloud and CLZ Music

August 14th, 2018

A couple of weeks ago, our CLZ Cloud (and Music Connect) has been updated with 8 more fields and loan information. Today’s version 18.3 now supports the syncing of all these new fields and your loan information to the CLZ Cloud and your CLZ Music mobile app!

Added for syncing:

  • Sortname for composers
  • Original Release Date
  • Packaging
  • Media Condition
  • Vinyl Color
  • Vinyl Weight
  • Vinyl RPM
  • Disc Titles

Heads up: after updating to version 18.3, the software will automatically mark most of your albums as “changed”, to force the upload of your data for the new fields to the CLZ Cloud.

New versions of CLZ Music for iOS and Android will be available in the coming days to allow the new fields to be synced there too!


CLZ Music (iOS)

v4.11.1: More editable fields!

August 14th, 2018

By popular demand, we have added more editable fields to CLZ Music:

Fields that are now fully editable:

  • Sortnames for composers
  • Original Release Date (exists next to regular release date)
  • Packaging
  • Media Condition (the old Condition field is now “Package/Sleeve Condition”)
  • Vinyl Color
  • Vinyl Weight
  • Vinyl RPM
  • Disc Title

But wait, that’s not all: All the above fields now also sync to and from the CLZ Cloud!

Secure HTTPS connections, for your security and privacy

As indicated in our GDPR email, we are updating our software and services, to be more secure and to better protect your privacy.

Starting with version 4.11 CLZ Music now uses secure HTTPS connections for all communications with our servers:

  • for logging in with your username and password
  • for syncing your data with CLZ Cloud
  • for sending your searches to Core.

To make this possible, we have created new secure “entry points” on our servers, that are only allowing secure HTTPS connections. The new CLZ Music app only communicates with those secure entry points.

For your privacy and security, we strongly recommend updating your app to v4.11.

Fixed:

  • Last update made some settings disappear in the settings screen. They are back now.
  • Added bottom margin to the add auto screen on iPhone X to make the add button more reachable
  • The sync screen wasn’t logging local deletes.

CLZ Music (Android)

For your privacy and security, we strongly recommend updating your app to v4.11.

A new sort option:

A couple of months ago we introduced new sort orders, including “Artist, then Year (Asc)” where it would sort the year ascending. By request, we’ve now added “Artist, then Year (Desc)” so you can also have your years in descending order. The regular “Asc.” and “Desc.” toggles for those two sort options will only affect the Artist sort order.

CLZ Music for iOS and Android will be updated in the coming days to allow the new fields to be synced there too!

Fixes:

  • Drag and drop of discs to other albums now works

Added for syncing:

These fields also all sync to the latest iOS and Android mobile apps (version 4.11 needed)!

Fixes:

  • Several Access Violation errors in the main screen.
  • List View: Double clicking on checks would make list unresponsive.

New tooltips and split-up settings

Hovering your mouse over the various buttons will now show tooltips to explain what the buttons do! Hover your mouse over the buttons to see what they do.

  • Field Defaults: to set up default field values for new items

v18.0.4: Fixed various issues in the sync with CLZ Cloud

April 10th, 2018

Fixed:

  • Sync with CLZ Cloud:
    • In the past disc information may not have been uploaded correctly, causing some discs to download incorrect information when down syncing. This version will correct this and all albums that are affected will be flagged dirty so they can up sync the correct information again. You may get a few automatic sync changes because of this.
    • Sometimes the “Local changes to be uploaded” counter didn’t show the correct number.
    • When a cover could not be downloaded during down syncing it would stop and not continue. Now it will continue and show a report of any errors that have occurred.
    • Sometimes covers weren’t uploaded when they should have.
    • The error: “This database is different from the one in CLZ Cloud” would show up in rare cases when it shouldn’t.
  • Main Screen:
    • There were still some cases where “follow edited item” option was not working.
    • Folder grouping on a credit role would show folders for all credit roles instead of just the one selected.
