The update from MPD version 0.20.23 to 0.21.x breaks existing clients such as GMPC, Sonata, ncmpc.

This introduces issues such as the library not updating, the playlist not updating when replacing/adding songs (or not showing), the songs not playing, etc, HTTP stream breakage.

Might be an issue with existing clients, the MPD API might've changed slightly?

This task depends upon

I'm using both ncmpc and mpc and they work just fine with the new mpd.

Could you give a little more detail as to what, exactly, breaks? Error messages, log outputs, and such would be most helpful. And if a simple rebuild against the new libmpdclient does not fix the issues then they should certainly be reported upstream. Cheers.

Looks like v0.21.2 has fixed some of the issues I had with HTTP streaming:
There is only one issue i have with 'add and replace'
Will report upstream.
