  • Upgrading to 1.2 will reset your perspectives (windows) to the new default to allow you to access to new views.
  • When using Catalog view for the first time, all thumbnails are created (this can take a while) and it can lead to sound short pauses only during this process.
  • From 1.1, Jajuk features automatic devices refresh. Set an appropriate refreshing time interval in device wizard (in device view, click on the device icon). By default, it's 30 sec for hard drives and no refresh for network drives or CDs. Note that devices created using the device wizard are not refreshed as well.
  • Reporting an issue using embedded quality agent (Help-> report an issue) doesn't work with Thunderbird under windows. Use this link instead:
