Synology package: Big YAMJ update

25 March 2013 12:11

While the version of YAMJ is only updated to 2.8, there have been multiple changes to the package.

The following changes have been made.

  • YAMJ is now only runnable when the user is logged in to DSM.
  • Changes to the settings can be made through DSM.
  • YAMJ shows a loading screen while running, so you know it's still doing something.

If you have any trouble using the package, please comment or contact me.

Users where also discussing the default black on white style. Therefor the default style is now white text on a black background.

Thank you for all of your feedback!
