SonosController lets you control your precious Sonos speakers from any Amiga
connected to the same network.

If you like SonosController, please consider a donation by PayPal:

Any donation is highly appreciated, no matter how small, and it helps to keep
motivation up to develop software like this for the Amiga!

Note to Vampire users
=====================
It seems that the 68080 doesn't like the FPU version much, I recommend you use
the non-fpu version on your Vampires. 

Features
========
- searches your network automatically for Sonos speakers (that was a tricky
  one) but if that fails for whatever reason, they can also be added manually
- network search is only needed once because the result of the scan is stored
  in the .config file
- listing your speakers with the info of the currently playing song, sporting
  an icon that is downloaded from the speaker itself
- grouping and ungrouping devices. When grouped, volume and muting can either
  be set for the whole group or for each device individually.
- subscription of the speaker's UPNP events (that was probably the hardest
  one to crack, man-o-man), it means that the controller gets a notification
  if the Sonos system receives a command from some other controller
  (f.e. from your mobile or on some other computer) or directly from the
  speaker's buttons
- sending control commands (sending SOAP requests, another tricky one):
  - Play
  - Pause
  - Next
  - Back
  - Jump to time index
  - Volume
  - Mute
  - Shuffle
  - Repeat (everything, current song)
  - Crossfade
- display of the current song's title, artist, and album on the selected
  speaker
- download and display of the album cover if possible (f.e. if embedded into
  the playing MP3 file)
- local cache for album covers for better performance
- local cache can be emptied in the Preferences dialog
- album cover download can be deactivated in the Preferences dialog
- listing the selected speaker's current queue
- playing a song by clicking an entry in the queue
- listing the Sonos favourites incl. starting one
- listing the Sonos playlists incl. starting one (normal oder shuffled)
- listing TuneIn's saved radio stations incl. starting one
- listing TuneIn's saved radio shows incl. starting one
- browsing your music library incl. starting songs, albums, etc. (normal or
  shuffled)
- searching your music library by search string and search type (artist,
  album, composer, genre, song or imported playlist)
- the last x search strings are save, whereas x can be configured in the
  Preferences (0 - max. 50)
- saved search strings can be emptied in the Preferences dialog
- re-index your music library
- keyboard shortcuts
- extendable localization using Hollywood's catalog file format
- german, italian and dutch localization included (thanks to my translators!)
- list information about the connected Sonos devices

And I absolutely wanted to have some Amiga exclusive features in it, things that
the original Sonos app isn't able to do:

- exporting playlists in M3U format. These can be put into your music library's
  "playlists" folder to be re-imported into Sonos, thus enabling you to kind of
  backup and restore your playlists.
- powerful ARexx interface
- notification if a new track is being played, optional for all or only the
  currently selected device group


Technical Details
=================
SonosController is created using Hollywood 10.0 and its plugins RapaGUI 2.1, 
hURL 2.0 and XML 2.0.

Side Note & Thanks
==================
SonosController is my very first Amiga program (I do C# normally) and would
not have been possible without the help of Andreas Falkenhahn and the great
Hollywood community at https://forums.hollywood-mal.com/. Thank you all for
your support!

Disclaimer
==========
All use of SonosController is at your own risk and I can't be held
responsible for any damage it might do to your Sonos or other equipment.
But really, I can't see any way how that might be possible.
And finally: note that I'm not associated with Sonos in any way other than
being a user of their products. Please visit https://www.sonos.com/ to find
out more about them and their excellent sound systems.

History
================
1.4 (23.02.2024)
----------------
- NEW: first release for AROS x86
- NEW: ARexx command REINDEX to invoke re-indexing the Sonos music library
- NEW: include all icons in every distribution in new subdrawer "Icons"
- NEW: include additional icons by AMIGASYSTEM (thanks Carlos!)
- IMPROVED: reloading the browser with F5 will not loose the selected position
  and item anymore.
- FIXED: loading of data (playlists, queues, etc.) is no longer limited to 100
  entries (bug introduced with 1.3).
- FIXED: if network is off the app won't crash on startup but show an error
  message.
- FIXED: possible crash when clicking the "looking for Sonos..." entry.

================
1.3 (02.02.2024)
----------------
- NEW: option to show notifications when a new track is played in any zones or,
  as another option, only in the currently selected zone.
  This uses MagicBeacon on MorphOS, Ringhio on AmigaOS 4.x and Ranchero on
  AmigaOS 3.x (if available).
- NEW (AmigaOS 4.x): show an icon in AmiDock including a context menu featuring
  the following commands:
  - Play/Pause
  - Previous track
  - Next track
- NEW: powerful ARexx interface, see AmigaGuide for further details
- NEW: detect if a device needs updating and stating this in its label.
- NEW: menuitem "Settings/Update music library now" to invoke a refresh of the
  Sonos music library.
- NEW: menuitem "Project/About my Sonos system" showing information about all
  zones found in the connected Sonos system.
- NEW: upgraded to Hollywood 10, hURL 2.0 and XML 2.0
- FIXED: possible crash if album art could not be loaded

================
1.2 (07.02.2022)
----------------
- NEW: support for grouping and ungrouping devices. When grouped, volume and
  muting can either be set for the whole group or for each device individually.
- NEW: support for devices that suddenly appear or disappear from the Sonos
  system, for example when turned on or off.
- NEW: timeout for devices to respond can be configured in the Preferences. On
  slower Amigas it might be necessary to increase the timeout (default is 5s).
- NEW: implemented localization
- NEW: german catalog: feel free to use it as a template to create catalog files
  for other languages. Check out the following link for info on how to do it:
  https://hollywood-mal.com/docs/html/hollywood/CatalogFormatNote.html
- NEW: italian catalog by Samir Hawamdeh. Thanks for this!
- NEW: dutch catalog by Dave "Skateman" Koelman. Thanks for this, too!
- NEW: if no devices can be found by the network scan, it's now enough to add
just
  one single device by its IP address. This one will then be queried to return
all
  the others.
- NEW: added a "Cancel" button to the requester that pops up if the network scan
  couldn't find anything (requested by Steve Harrison).
- NEW: added a version check of reqtools.library where needed (on AmigaOS 3.x
and
  MorphOS) when adding devices manually and letting the user know, if the
version
  installed is not sufficient (v39 or higher is needed). After confirming with
"OK",
  the URL of the download page on Aminet is automatically opened.
- NEW: displaying the loading's progress when browsing the music library incl.
the
  possibility to cancel it by pressing the [<] button.
- NEW: button "Clear Queue" is disabled for an empty queue.
- IMPROVED: quicker network scan because now it's enough to find one single
device
  to connect to.
- CHANGED: for the non-AmigaOS 3.x versions the shortcuts for "Next" /
"Previous"
  are changed from Alt-LEFT/RIGHT back to Ctrl-LEFT/RIGHT (as it was in v1.0),
  because only on an Amiga keyboard the Alt key is the closest qualifier key to
the
  cursor keys, but on keyboards used on NG-Amigas it's usually the Ctrl key.
- FIXED: nasty networking bug that caused SonosController to freeze after a
while,
  especially on AmigaOS 3.x.
- FIXED: possible crash when searching something without results, searching some
  more and going back again.
- FIXED: switching between "Pause" and "Play" sometimes made the button move a
  pixel.
- FIXED: as long a no Sonos devices are found, all controls are now disabled by
  default, avoiding possible crashes.
- FIXED: Control menu items are now disabled according to the corresponding
buttons.
- FIXED: suppressing shortcuts for "Next" and "Previous" while the search field
is
  focused, because Ctrl/Alt-Left/Right is used to navigate inside the textentry.
- FIXED: MUI 5 column widths in the Music Library browser listview.
- FIXED: display of room's names with MUI 4.0
- FIXED: replaced calls to "OpenURL" with "URLOpen" in the AmigaGuide for
AmigaOS 4.x.

----------------
1.1 (27.09.2021)
----------------
- NEW: first release for AmigaOS 3.x besides 4.1 and MorphOS
- NEW: lots of performance improvements to make it usable on a 68060 cpu, 
  resulting in being blazingly fast on PPC-Amigas.
- NEW: MUI 3.8 compatibility (instead of 5.0)
- NEW: zones (= rooms) are now saved in the config file so when starting the
  app the next time no network scan is necessary, resulting in a much quicker
  startup.
- NEW: to save on network traffic and CPU load, loading of the current queue
  can now be deactivated in the Preferences.
- NEW: network scan can now be cancelled and it's no longer possible to start
  a second scan while one is already running (this led to speakers being
  listed multiple times in v1.0).
- NEW: queue lists are now cached in memory and are only reloaded if a change
  has been reported by the according UPNP event.
- NEW: various zone values are now cached in memory and are no longer reloaded
  when switching between zones.
- NEW: loading of album art for radio stations
- NEW: timeout for UPNP subscription has been increased from 10 minutes to
  1 hour (same as with the original Sonos app).
- NEW: added progress in percent while loading a list in the music source
- NEW: added the possibility to cancel loading a list in the music source
- NEW: "Settings" menu to accomodate the menuitems "Preferences..." and "MUI..."
- NEW: "About MUI..." menuitem to follow the MUI styleguide
- CHANGED: shortcuts for "Next" / "Previous" from Ctrl-LEFT/RIGHT to Alt-
  LEFT/RIGHT because on an Amiga keyboard the Ctrl key is quite far away from
  the cursor keys.
- REMOVED: browsing the music library by song: it was useless and took ages,
  it's much better to use the search instead.
- FIXED: renewal of UPNP subscription as well as unsubscription
- FIXED: TV input is now handled correctly.
- FIXED: improved handling when clicking like mad into the track position
slider.
- FIXED: disable play button if action "Play" is not available
- FIXED: lots of minor bugfixes

----------------
1.0 (16.08.2021)
----------------
- first public release for AmigaOS 4.1 and MorphOS 3.x
