A new minor update of Helium 12.4 is now available.


It contains the following new major fixes:

  • Click & shift-clicking on columns on a playlist will mark it as dirty

Parallell to the maintance work with Helium 12.4 we have many new features under development.

We will present the upcoming features more in detail in a blog post within a few weeks.

can you give us new resx file for translating? for me slovak :) thank you 

@Thomas Schmalz: Sorry, we can unfortunately not handle requests in German, Can you please rewrite your query in English?

The updating of the database even faster? Opposite of helium 11 is the match and update but quite slow. Otherwise, there is a big compliment!

This release does not contain any optimizations or such compared earlier Helium 12 builds.

In general the adding speed should be equal or sometimes quicker than in Helium 11, but that depends on your specific database type, number of tracks etc.


If you experience any performance issues you would like us to analyse further, please open a support ticket for this and provide details about your database, number of tracks, operating system, CPU and if possible also a backup of your database.

WIrd die Aktualisierung der Datenbank auch einmal schneller werden? Gegenüber von Helium 11 ist das abgleichen doch recht langsam. Ansonsten gibt es ein großes Lob!
