Additional info


1.9.9 (2017-08-15):Skipping the end of a track prevented Stop after current from working. Now playback is stopped in this case. Unfortunately cursor won't advance to the next track like it normally would
1.9.8 (2016-04-17):Fixed incorrect behavior when using Previous-command after skipping a track
1.9.7 (2015-01-05):Fixed conflicts between SKIP tag and other components that try to seek
1.9.6 (2014-12-03):Fixed DSP part playing silence if component was enabled while playing a track that should be skipped
1.9.5 (2014-11-06):Fixed to work with other DSPs that request track change marks
1.9.4 (2014-10-13):Added safety checks to callbacks to stop all action after on_quit is called
1.9.3 (2014-09-30):Fixed query string length limit
1.9.2 (2014-09-29):Moved settings from advanced preferences to main preferences
1.9.1 (2014-09-20):Bugfixes
1.9 (2014-08-05):Fixed muted output when resuming in paused state. SKIP and BOOKMARK fields no longer override playback resume position. Allows other components to seek to any position on track start regardless of SKIP field's presence.
1.8.9 (2014-07-19):Changed not to skip tracks if skip query is empty.
1.8.8 (2014-07-06):Fixed %playlist_name% handling.
1.8.7 (2014-05-01):Fixed playback skipping not always working.
1.8.6 (2014-04-28):Properly fixed Converter DSP failing to skip parts. Fixed playback failing to skip ending of track if SKIP tag specified also beginning of track.
1.8.5 (2014-04-27):Fixed Converter DSP failing to skip end of track.
1.8.4 (2014-04-20):Fixed skip check for the next track if component was enabled during playback. Added status printing for queue sourced tracks.
1.8.3 (2014-03-06):Removed the DSP change checks introduced in version 1.7.3. These were misbehaving with at least foo_playlist_attributes.
1.8.2 (2014-03-04):Now considers queued tracks to be manually selected and uses the appropriate skip rule.
1.8.1 (2014-02-27):Recompile with SSE2 optimizations disabled.
1.8 (2014-02-23):Moved track skip logic to be performed entirely in the DSP. Fixed partial skipping with SKIP tag. Now also comes with an additional DSP for Converter use. Converter behavior when skipping entire tracks depends on output codec. WAV for example produces zero byte file and converter reports error, FLAC produces no output.
1.7.8 (2013-04-13):Changed DSP skip check to allow core callbacks more time to skip track before giving up
1.7.7 (2013-03-24):Fixed bug that component did not respect playback queue
1.7.6 (2013-03-23):Documented all the special fields skip query supports
1.7.5 (2013-01-26):Added support for $rand() function
1.7.4 (2011-07-02):Bookmark tag isn't updated if another component changes playback position immediately after track is opened. Fixed 'Skip to end' behavior with 'Repeat (track)' playback mode. Allowed use of 'Skip to end' feature together with bookmarks.
1.7.3 (2011-06-29):Fixed DSP chain adjustments causing pauses in audio. Fixed bookmarks disappearing unintentionally in some cases.
1.7.2 (2011-06-25):Fixes to bookmarking related features. Changed autobookmarking not to tag files during the first ten seconds of playback.
1.7.1 (2011-06-25):Added an option to keep bookmarks of manually bookmarked tracks updated too. Now updates bookmark also when playback is stopped.
1.7 (2011-06-25): Added support for bookmarking tracks. Can also automatically bookmark tracks that are in Media Library.
1.6 (2011-06-20): Added support for querying current playback order name using %playback_order%
1.5.1 (2011-03-27):Fixed an issue where the DSP could start playing silence in some situations when using time expressions.
1.5 (2011-03-12): Fixed manual playback of files from Media Library Search window. Added support for time expressions in the skip string (time expressions in the DSP component require foobar2000 v1.1.6 or newer).
1.3 (2010-08-23): Allows skipping both the beginning and the end of a track.
1.2 (2010-07-04): Allows skipping a part inside a track. Syntax SKIP=[from-time]-[to-time]. Changed status bar description for main menu entry to show current skip query string.
1.1 (2010-07-04): Added support for querying current playlist name using %playlist_name%. Added support for skipping the beginning or the end of a track by using tag field SKIP. To skip the beginning, use syntax SKIP=-<time>. To skip the end, use SKIP=<time>-.
1.0 (2010-05-02): Previous version broke gapless playback. Simplified the DSP code. Skip Track should be the last DSP in the chain.
0.9 (2010-05-02): Beginning of a skipped track was still played even when using DSP.
0.8 (2010-04-24): Bugfix: DSP component skipped some short tracks always. Added console notification about skipped track.
0.7 (2010-01-16): Better thread safety. Should no longer hang playback when changing DSP configuration while playing. Added support for dynamic title change detection.
0.6 (2010-01-16): Added optional DSP component for increased skipping accuracy. Changed configuration to use search query syntax.
0.5 (2009-12-25): Added option to force skip tracks even when manually selecting them.
0.4 (2009-01-03): Behavior change: track is not skipped if formatting string evaluates to 0.
0.3 (2008-11-03): Bugfix: backwards skipping didn't work properly when there were more than one track to skip.
0.2 (2008-11-02): Doesn't skip manually selected track or currently playing track when foobar resumes after restart. Skips to previous track when to-be-skipped track was reached by user pressing Prev-button.
