Playnite 9 release is available - Crow - 09-30-2021

This is major new release with many breaking changes to existing themes/extensions, please read these notes before updating!

Playnite 9 contains breaking changes to both extensions and themes. Even though some developers already updated their add-ons and have P9 compatible versions available, not all did. Which means that if you absolutely depend on some specific theme or extension and they are not available for P9, you might want to wait with update to P9.

All add-ons will report that they are not compatible with current version after the update to Playnite 9. This is intentional since all built-in extensions are no longer included in Playnite's base installation package. You will need to navigate to new Add-ons menu and update them from there (there's Update section that will update all extensions automatically in bulk).

Downgrade to Playnite 8 is not possible. Playnite 9 changes format of game library, which can't be loaded in Playnite 8.

Changelog:

This list is not fully exhaustive, there are many more smaller fixes and improvements in this release.

Breaking:

I did but i just rechecked them and still didn't understand, what am i missing?


RE: Playnite 9 release is available - Crow - 10-15-2021

You need to go to new add-ons menu and update all add-ons from there. If you are not getting any updates, then something is blocking Playnite from accessing its backend to check for updates.

Go to "About Playnite" menu and generate diagnostics package for me.

btw it gave me a notification that said failed to upload diagnostic


RE: Playnite 9 release is available - Crow - 10-15-2021

Something is blocking Playnite from accessing its server: Unable to connect to the remote server. That's also why diag upload failed.
