I apologize as I am still familiarizing myself with posting here

That's where I went and only showed four errors, never-the-less it was changed

>> 3) Picky picky - vertical align in part 3
> Not picky. When you reduce sizes, everything becomes unaligned.
> You already had the good idea to align labels to the right side.

It was sarcasm

>> 5) Yes the 'open stream' is designed for one click streaming for user

What do you recommend?

maxHeight: 600 in patch 3 should have fixed it. It shouldn't have a  
static height.

By manually using a color, it adds user complexity when changing themes.

>> 8) see number 7, the style is toggled, though there is no ui-selected css

Again, manual colors is not theme friendly.

>> 9) 'Audio slider is not really working' needs more explanation. What

> Drag or click, the volume always goes back to the previous value.

I do not experience this problem in any of my environments. Do you see  
it send the command? Does the library reload?

Again, manual colors.

My point is the xml output should be standardized. The UI should not  
have to process pre-processed information.

Be my guest.

What new wiki? With as many times as these patches have come back to  
me, I really don't know if it will ever make it into the release.
