v2.0.3 - 2020-05-22


  • Added new options for spinning cdArt including # of images to cache and how frequently to update. Be warned: Setting these numbers to high can drastically increase memory and CPU usage. Also if you are attempting to display lyrics and have a very high setting for redraw speed, the theme may become unresponsive.
  • If you have a Lyric Show 3 panel in your theme (recommended to add it hidden), lyrics will automatically be downloaded and will be displayed in the theme as soon as they are available.
  • New option to not show the song title above the timeline bar, and instead show the album title there.
  • Lyrics settings added to options menu


  • Playlist smooth scrolling can now be disabled in the Options menu
  • Library Panel has been (mostly) updated to a newer version of the code that should be slightly easier to maintain
  • Improved scrollbar functionality in library and playlist
  • Scrollbars in library now look much more like the nicer library scrollbars
  • Replaced lodash with a slimmed down copy which is 25% of the size (4k lines vs 18k), and also switched from lodash functions to native functions whenever possible. Hope is this will be faster at both load and runtime.

  • Library search for a string fully contained in the word “audio” (i.e. “Dio”, “io”, “audio”, etc.) no longer retuns your entire library
