Audio

Code Quality

Database

Update beatmap statistics and difficulty after making changes in the editor (#18835 by @peppy)

Smaller changes

  • Fix PerformWrite not rolling back transaction on exception (#18951 by @peppy)
  • Ensure all async writes are completed before realm is disposed (#18874 by @peppy)
  • Add more verbose logging to realm blocking process (#18979 by @peppy)

Framework

Gameplay

Fix replays showing incorrect star difficulty on load (#18984 by @frenzibyte)

Send beatmap hash to server on solo score request (#18978 by @peppy)

Right now, the client does nothing to ensure a beatmap is in a valid state before requesting to submit a score. There is further work to be done client-side so it is more aware of this state (already handled for playlists, but not for the solo gameplay loop), but the solution I have in mind for that is a bit more involved.

This is not used server-side yet, but I want to get this sending so we can start using it for some very basic validation.

Smaller changes

Gameplay (osu!)

  • Imitate stable's slider ball fade in/out animation (#18977 by @goodtrailer)
    • Though only a minor change which is basically imperceptible for most skins, some skins actually draw the followcircle as part of the ball sprite, resulting in instantly fading followcircles. An example in a relatively popular skin is shigetora's, Seoul v10 (reddit). The effect is slight but noticeable in this case, and doesn't work the same with lazer's current slider ball fade anims.

Localisation

Multiplayer

Add room public/private filter to multiplayer lounge screen (#18821 by @ggliv)

Smaller changes

Performance

Reduce overhead of transform processing when no transforms are present in a drawable (ppy/osu-framework#5279 by @peppy)

Should help quite a bit for cases with many things on screen (like multiplayer spectator).

Reliability

Song Select

Add difficulty filter reset to song select "no results" suggestions (#18963 by @peppy)

Also now displays multiple suggestions at once.

Move star difficulty filter to song select (#18962 by @peppy)

A lot of people accidentally set this setting in the global settings then can't see any beatmaps. Moving it to song select is a usability priority, to the point I've taken some shortcuts to get this in sooner (before the full song select redesign). Focus is on usability, not getting the control looking great, but I think it works okay.
