It's Wednesday and as promised, I'm launching UKMP 1.2.
The major reason why you should upgrade to this version is party mode.
Party mode is basically a queue of the songs you want to be played next.
Let me demostrate to you.
Click on any album of yours.
Looks a bit like this:
At least if you chose Norah Joneses new album (very good - highly recommended).
Ok, what's new in this picture. You see on the right a button: Continuous mode. Click on that and it will switch to party mode. Now, click on a few songs and after each click the song you clicked will get a play order number at the end of the song name. Like this:
Also, the button will tell you that the queue size is at the moment 8. All right, I also chose songs from another album in the mix. Yes, you can switch back to cover list, click on another album, choose songs from there, add them to the mix and in a few minutes you have DJd yourself a sweet mix of music and you are ready to transform and roll out ( - if you are a transformer - if not, maybe just take your n800 to your car and don't worry about clicking while driving. It's dangerous. Just listen to your set of relaxing and antistressing tunes while driving in the traffic).
And that's not all. There's also support for using your existing collection of cover images. It works the same way as canola. Just put a cover.jpg a folder containing mp3 files. It will then default to that image for all albums in that folder.
Also, by popular reques (yeah. I requested it myself), UKMP will skip any folders titled: Maps. This improves living besides maemo mapper.
And last but not least, accidental clicks in cover view are now handled a bit better.
I may post up a video demonstration tomorrow.
Ahh... The links.
Remember, you need to have python installed. If you don't have it, you can install it from here:

If you need ogg support, you can install ogg to your device from here:
I was able to make a quick one take video and put it on youtube. It demonstrates the functionality in a quick manner. I wish I had the time to make these things in a proper manner.
