XiiaLive v2.2.4 - release notes

Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago • updated 7 years ago 2

Release date: 09/22/11

Version: v2.2.4


Update v2.2.4 is mainly a maintenance update.  This update resolves a few issues that caused XiiaLive to crash.


Most of the crash issues where related to the database being closed on rare occasions. This is hopefully completely resolved.


Other crash issues happened with the new custom lower menu bar.  There was an issue related to divide by zero exception.


And finally s little threading cleanup for the stream engine.  Generally creating a new thread uses a lot of resources and can cause the app to run a little slower.  A few threads where removed on the stream engine that weren't needed minimizing the resources used by the stream engine.


The following are the changes.

Jona, will these recent changes made in 2.3.4 help to improve (reduce) battery drain? I updated to 2.3.4 today and Xiialive seems to be a little less taxing on the battery than 2.3.3 was, in the short time I have been using it. I have been using internal stream engine on both. Thank you for the update. :-) It's working great so far.

Well the initial connection/prebuffering area of things should have improved since I removed a lot of heavy unneeded code.  In regards to the internal stream engine there has been very little improvement there on this update.  If you use the Android native stream engine you might see batery improvements but on the internal stream engine not so sure there is any...
