27.0.66 (2/12/2021)

1. Changed: Changed the Share toolbar button image.
2. NEW: Added a "Shared" field that gets checked when you share, but if you uncheck the file will no longer be accessible.
3. Fixed: Expressions that ended with a slash could output garbage.
4. Changed: The optional 6 dB boost applied to DSD playback is reported in Audio Path.
5. Fixed: Bug in DLNA conversion to DSF that resulted in popping especially at the end of a file.
6. NEW: When playing a DMS channel associated with a DMS device, the IP address of the channel is checked against the device's current IP address.  If the two are different, MC automatically updates the channel URL to match the device.
7. Changed: Updated Russian translation (thanks Vladimir).
8. Changed: Removed the URLs from the share dialog.
9. NEW: Added "Share" toolbar buttons.
10. Changed: Added URL escapement to the share URLs.
11. Changed: When sharing, a choice is offered about what link to place on the clipboard.
12. Changed: Renamed getting a file URL to "Share...".
13. NEW: Generated a new file sharing MCWS call that does not require authentication.  The file key is encrypted.
14. NEW: When sharing, a local IP is also provided along with the remote IP.
15. Fixed: Fast forward / rewind did not work when playing a DMS TV channel.
16. Changed: Showing the day for a year only date will show an empty string instead of one.
17. NEW: Added a way to reset your sharing credentials to Options > Media Network (will make all previous shares invalid).
18. Changed: When opening 3 or 5 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 5.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
19. Changed: When opening 7 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 7.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
20. Changed: Tweaked the text of the auto-configure dialog to be more clear and to not report the bitdepth (since that isn't the actual output bitdepth).
21. Fixed: Google lyrics lookup could contain junk at the end of the lyrics.
22. Changed: MCWS no longer requires authentication for functions marked to not require authentication.
23. NEW: Added the right-click command Get Sharing URL... to get a URL from MCWS to share externally (it uses your external IP address, so you will need to setup port forwarding on your router).
24. Fixed: TV Channel grouping did not work with DMS channels.
25. NEW: When running "Auto Group" on all TV channels, users are presented with a list of tuner types to select, so one can choose which types of channels are included in the auto group process.
26. Fixed: System and display sleep weren't being prevented when playing audio (via HDMI) or video on macOS Big Sur.

27.0.62 (2/9/2021)

1. Fixed: Crashes could occur in various places (reconfiguring the output plugin on sample rate incompatibility was one).

27.0.61 (2/4/2021)

1. Fixed: Lyrics lookups stopped working.
2. Changed: When opening 3 or 5 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 5.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
3. Changed: When opening 7 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 7.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
4. Changed: Tweaked the text of the auto-configure dialog to be more clear and to not report the bitdepth (since that isn't the actual output bitdepth).
5. Fixed: Filling the selected files from Theater View could get all the files instead of just the selected files.
6. Fixed: DLNA server, when the Audio output is set to "Selected Format only when Necessary" wav and mp3 files wouldn't be converted if the output format selected was the same as the input format which prevented DSD studio transformations from being applied.
7. NEW: DLNA conversion to DSD (dsf 1x).
8. Changed: Changed implementation of DMS TV channel playback and recording.  It should behave much better, in particular when playing a channel that is currently recording.
9. Fixed: If MC was started connected to a library server and the user switched to the main library, there were multiple superfluous error boxes popped up.

27.0.58 (1/25/2021)

1. Changed: Waveform data is no longer being created for Video content.
2. Fixed: The change to grouping fields could cause other issues.  Feedback appreciated.
3. NEW: Added the video type MXF to the player.
4. Faster: The program loads faster.
5. Changed: Clicking on the MC icon in the Dock while MC is running in Media Server mode will bring up the UI.
6. Fixed: Media Server mode was preventing shutdown/restart.
7. Fixed: Bug in screen position when bringing up the UI from the Media Server status bar icon.
8. Fixed: Switching Analyzer in and out of "High resolution" could crash while playing.
9. Fixed: Getting an expression with the API could perform extra (and unwanted) cleaning of the output.
10. NEW: When ripping a disc for the second time, a confirmation message is shown to let you know and allow you to cancel.
11. Changed: When auto-sizing columns, width for sort arrows is included.
12. Changed: Made the analyzer fall off faster (especially in high resolution mode).
13. Fixed: The video analyzer could sometimes take a long time.
14. Fixed: Upon shutdown/restart/logout and the Apple menu quit, MC will do a graceful shutdown (tells DLNA renderers that it's closing).
15. Changed: The Apple menu Quit terminates all of the program when in Media Server mode. File->Exit leaves Media Server running.

27.0.57 (1/21/2021)

1. Fixed: Drawing window size on retina monitors when dragging the screen, especially visible on the mini player view.
2. NEW: Some optimization of the window size and positioning code.
3. Changed: When editing a field, if one of the values is empty it will be added to the list of choices instead of removed.
4. NEW: AviSynth Filter is added to the white list for "video post processing" filters.
5. Changed: Improved the DSP Studio analyzer.
6. NEW: DTS parsing gets the proper number of channels.
7. Fixed: APL files were not always working properly for the last few builds.
8. Changed: When building the list of items for a grouping, the values are formatted (before it would show an integer when grouping by date, but now it will show a proper date).
9. NEW: The smartlist editor has a rule "contains full word" to put a hat (^) in front of the word.
10. Changed: Improved threading decisions for image drawing, greatly speeding up the Analyzer DSP and other drawing tasks.
11. Fixed: The message that files will be renamed to avoid collisions is no longer shown when just updating the database.
12. NEW: Added a match mode to the ListFind(...) expression function to switch between partial matching and full matching.
13. Faster: Optimized the way the analyzer works to make processing faster.
14. Fixed: Manually editing a DMS TV channel did not work (because a list of tuners were presented, instead of a list of devices);
15. Fixed: MP4 files could report double the proper length in some cases.
16. Changed: When removing the played tracks from Playing Now, it now removes the just played track as well.
17. NEW: DMS TV channels on the same device can be mass-edited, to change device, IP Address, and/or port.  This is useful when one needs to replace a broken tuner device with a new one of the same type, or when the IP address of a device changes.
18. Fixed (possibly): High GPU usage after watching and stopping a TV show that was being recorded (may need to repeatedly watch and stop watching to reproduce).
19. Changed: Bookmarking will always clear if we reach the end of the file (before with cross-fading on it could save a value near the end).
20. Changed: Right aligning the tag saving statusbar text so the user customized text stays visible.
21. NEW: The display view window position is reset when doing "Reset window position settings...".
22. Changed: Beyonwiz U4 device is white-listed as a supported DMS TV device. Hope it works!
23. NEW: Added a "Reset Perc Data" button on TV setup wizard and EPG setup wizard, to allow users to reset when their Perc Data account, in particular the lineup info, has changed.
24. Fixed: After downloading from library server, the file could be incorrectly removed from the server's library.
25. NEW: Made stopping after a number of tracks work with DLNA.
26. Fixed: Picking no options in the Rename, Move, & Copy dialog could result in the files actually getting renamed to <No Change>.
27. Fixed: Loading and saving VST3 presets could misbehave.
28. NEW: Experimental code for detaching the display window on Macs. Needs work but basically usable.

27.0.50 (1/7/2021)

1. Changed: Made date imported editable like last played (instead of clear only).
2. Fixed: Crash when using a remote with Theater View.
3. Changed: Switched the equalizer to these frequencies: 31.25,62.5,125,250,500,1k,2k,4k,8k,16k.
4. NEW: VST3 effects save and load their states.
5. NEW: Added 3 channel to the VST3 output (L, R, C).
6. Fixed: When playing a DMS TV channel while the show was being recorded, the playback went to live time instead of program start time (or recording start time).
7. Changed: The shuffle at the end of the playlist when shuffle mode is on will only fire if playback is set to advance to the first track again.
8. NEW: Added the save and load buttons to VST3 plugins.

27.0.49 (1/5/2021)

1. Fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, the later recordings might include data for previous shows.
2. Possibly fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, some recording might end up fail (zero byte recorded).

27.0.48 (1/5/2021)

1. Changed: Maximum allowable filepath length changed from 256 to the Mac maximum (1024).
2. Fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, the later recordings might include data for previous shows.
3. Possibly fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, some recording might end up fail (zero byte recorded).
4. Changed: When searching, - is used to mark the start of a word just like space.  That way "wheel" will find "mouse-wheel".
5. Changed: TV recordings on DMS channels are now properly bookmarked.
6. Fixed: Playback as DoP was not working properly.
5. NEW: Added a Not(...) expression function to flip the state of a variable.
7. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukac).
8. Changed: Made the last played field editable (instead of clear only).
9. Changed: Updated Dutch translation (thanks Maarten!).
10. Fixed: TV background tasks might not be performed if no recording actions were scheduled.
11. Fixed: The DSP variables for the enabled state could be big values instead of 0 or 1.
12. Fixed: Pausing while watching a TV show that was still being recorded would cause recording to stop and restart, creating multiple recordings.
13. Fixed: Dividers in Parametric Equalizer did not always save their text properly.
14. NEW: DSP Presets can be saved and loaded from files.
15. Changed: Removed length limitation on string data in certain MP4 atoms (would make the waveform analysis incorrect on M4A files).
16. Fixed: Resources for cover art sent by the DLNA content directory had incorrect attributes which could cause them to be rejected in cases where they were compared to the SourceProtocolInfo.
17. NEW: Specifying "Selected" on the command line will grab the selected files.
18. NEW: Specifying "Shuffle" as one of the files on the command line will shuffle the selection.
19. Changed: Made the program message when Google has shut off translation (instead of just trying again and again failing).

27.0.44 (12/15/2020)

1. Fixed: Some libraries missing for the Intel architecture.
2. Fixed: Dolby encoding wasn't working for ARM.
3. Changed: The Big Sur info under System Information -> Advanced broke with the 11.1 update.

0. NOTE: This is the Native Screen rendering build.
1. Changed: When moving cover art to a new folder, a confirmation is shown before moving all the files.
2. NEW: The statusbar is updated from a thread so blocking to access a drive spinning up won't block the program.
3. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
4. Changed: The cover art path is not validated until it is used, so having it on a non-spinning drive will not spin the drive up just viewing the library.
5. Fixed: Possible deadlock when starting to play a DMS TV channel.
6. Fixed: The track info processor was not handling all the formats properly since the parenthesis addition.
7. Fixed: Text vertical alignment is properly maintained in nested tags.
8. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
9. Changed: Equalizer presets are sorted by name (instead of randomly).
10. Changed: When shuffling a set of tracks all by the same artist, the album will be used to maximize the shuffle instead of the artist.
11. Fixed: Seeking to end of file in video playback sometimes was ignored.
12. NEW: Recording works on DMS Tuner channels.
13. Changed: When renaming a library, if you rename the active library, the name used for backups will also be updated.

19. Changed: Updated Czech translation (thanks Jan Boháč!).
20. Fixed: A possible crash when decoding a corrupt APE file.
21. Fixed: DSD output could crackle in the last builds.
22. Fixed: Italian had the same translation for skin and theme, so it caused Theater View options to misbehave.
23. Changed: Made the Reporter view respond to F5 and refresh.
24. Fixed: APE decoding could leak.
25. Changed: When MC fails to get DMS TV channels using the device's "urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:ContentDirectory" service, an alternative method of using a channel lineup JSON file (if available) will be attempted.

27.0.35 (11/22/2020)

0. NOTE: This is the EXPERIMENTAL Native screen rendering build.
1. Fixed: Window placement when dragging the main window on mouse button release.
2. NEW: Fast Forwarding and Rewinding are now supported for Streaming (DMS) TV tuners.
3. Changed: Changed the read caching behavior of the thumbnail database to reduce memory consumption and improve performance with large databases.
4. Fixed: When time-shifting session on a DMS tuner ended, an empty folder was left undeleted.
5. NEW: The column presets menu shows names of previous saves for quick overwrite (instead of requiring entering the name).
6. NEW: The Rename, Move & Copy presets menu shows names of previous saves for quick overwrite (instead of requiring entering the name).
7. Changed: The program can close if Analyze Audio is showing but not processing.

10. NEW: Added the MCWS call GetLinkExpanded to get a link expanded set of files.
11. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Stefan).
12. Changed: Tooltips are allowed to cover the auto-complete tooltip if they would otherwise go off the screen.
13. Changed: MC will be more responsive at startup when it processes TV recording actions.
14. Changed: The confirmation for clearing Playing Now will no longer say it will stop if playback is already stopped.
15. Changed: The lock and unlock playlist button are in the same spot, so doing a slow double click in the area will not be disruptive.
16. Changed: Ran all the translations through the tool to update to the latest strings from the source code.
17. Fixed: When resuming normal play from FF/REW on a time-shifting TV tuner, the OSD paused status could be wrong.
18. Changed: Tag dump in the Tag Action Window no longer tries to analyze video files (it could be slow and rarely returned anything).
19. Changed: Media Keys are processed on the main thread.
20. Fixed: Potential instability resulting from UI functions on background threads.
21. Changed: Compiled with Xcode 12.1

27.0.32 (11/13/2020)

1. Fixed: Drag/Drop of views on retina screens.
2. Changed: Resetting the window positions will also reset the main program position.
3. Changed: Clearing Playing Now on a remote zone will work a little better.
4. Changed: Stopping remote zones would not actually take effect before returning so the state could be incorrect.
5. NEW: Made the View > Load / Save View menu have the previous save names so you can just overwrite without entering the name.
6. Changed: When the playback state changes in remote zones, the playback engine will be notified right away (instead of waiting to know).

27.0.31 (11/6/2020)

0. NOTE: This is the EXPERIMENTAL Native screen rendering build.
1. Fixed: VST3 Plugin window issue.
2. Fixed: HEIF images were not rotated properly.
3. Changed: Made the plugin install dialog list both DLL and VST3 in the same selection (instead of requiring switching).
4. Changed: When playing a DMS TV channel with a streaming tuner, time-shifting will observer user configured time-shifting limit, so that disk space usage will not grow indefinitely.

Found an odd bug, or I think it is, maybe not just for mac, but haven't tested. When having disabled video and image support from MC, choosing to view extra and trying to open an image file gives an error as expeced, but then the progress bar for the current song playing disappears at the top and I am unable to stop the playback, and when I try to play a new song it plays two at the same time. I had to restart MC to fix it.

Is there something in the power settings that would prevent my display from going to sleep?  I know we were able to fix the screensaver issue while playing video, but when my Mac is idle on BigSur 11.2.1 (i.e. not playing video), my screensaver displays as usual, but the display does not go to sleep as configured in Mac System Preferences.

I noticed the same thing and it only began as of recently perhaps even just since this latest MC... I am now having to quit MC before I go to bed at night for my display to be allowed to sleep.  while MC is paused it still shows 'preventing sleep' in Activity Monitor.  This goes back to the original issue I raised a year or two ago that MC doesn't release the OS to sleep if the track is on pause not just stop. 

I use my keyboard play/pause button to stop the music at night before bed but unfortunately pause isn't enough to release CoreAudio in MC.  I think it should release CoreAudio during either pause or stop, ie. If it isn't actively playing audio CoreAudio session should be released allowing sleep.  It does seem fundamentally different now in this release because previously stopping audio would release it and allow sleep while simply pausing it would not however it now prevents sleep even when you press stop on the track.  This is new behavior and it was probably broken in the #26 'fix'.  I think this needs another round of attention to assure MC does not prevent sleep if audio is not playing no matter paused or stopped.

yeah, neither my mac mini nor my monitor ever sleeps now while MC is running no matter if music is playing or paused or even stopped.  this is a real problem is killing my power bill.

Wake on LAN?

https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,128657.0.html

Not for me.  Haven't changed any of these settings since it used to sleep before the latest version or two...  If you look in the activity monitor you will see is 'preventing sleep' is always 'yes' no matter what while it's running.  it used to go to 'no' when music was stopped.

It's broken because the fix for Big Sur to keep it running while playing video isn't working as expected.
It will be a while before I can get to it. You can back off to the stable version 27.0.62 in the meantime.

Are you referring to 27.0.62 for Silicon/Intel? Is there a link available for this version?
(I found the link, it was further back in the history than I expected).

Might be a very rare obscure crash, but I can consistently crash MC27 instantly when toggling on or off "reduce transparency" on an M1 Mac Mini

DSP settings are not consistent. I am not seeing multichannel audio output via HDMI from FLAC music files.

Set channels to 5.1 and close settings.
Play stereo track and open DSP settings.
See channels are now displayed as 2 instead of 5.1.

Source is 48KHz/24-bit 2ch.  Internal 48KHz/24-bit 2 ch

Set channels back to 5.1 and close settings.
Open settings and confirm channels are still 5.1.
Play 5.1 24/96 track from DVD-A.
Noticed that multi-channel input option is not available from Marantz preamp.
Open DSP settings while music is still playing.
Channels is set to 2
Source is 96/24/6ch.  Internal 48/64/2ch.

Repeated experiment on Windows MC 27.0.66 and tracks play correctly.

Disable the MC setting (under Audio->Advanced) that Configures the output device on playback failure.
You then get a failure dialog for every setting that isn't supported by the hardware.

Dear moderator, my media center 27 is used on a macbook pro 16-inch. If the speaker is not connected to the earphone, the computer screen will flicker. If the earphone is connected, the screen does not flicker. I don’t know what caused it.

There are garbled characters in the menu bar of the macbook pro 16-inch 11.2.2 system. Ask the administrator for a solution.

Try choosing a different font. It looks like the selected one doesn't have your character set.

Hello bob, what I asked before was that I plugged in the earphones and the screen did not have a splash screen, but there was a splash screen with my own speakers. What is the reason?

I'm back on 62 due to the sleep bug but something I just noticed is the magic mouse scroll speed sensitivity is way too high scrolling up and down the list of playing now songs.  I don't ever remember it being so sensitive and jumping so far for a relatively small scroll.  Has this behavior changed recently? New Big Sur behavior?  My OS wide settings for mouse haven't changed and scroll the same as always have in every other app just in MC it scrolls on steroids and I need to calm it down somehow.  Is there a MC setting for this?

Also bit of a bug is if you open the about dialog and then click on the main window to bring it front you can't use any of the main window controls or even minimize the window to once again see the about dialog to close it.  It's semi-modal in all the wrong ways.  Only fix to regain control is to go back in the menu and re-select About and then close that dialog that pops up... the original About though still remains.  Just a little confusing and weird.  If it's modal it should always remain in the foreground until it's closed not letting the main window come in front of it.  It should also not be possible to open 2 About dialogs.  I'm not sure About needs to be modal?  While an about dialog is open you also can't drag the main window to for example see the About behind it.

Might be a very rare obscure crash, but I can consistently crash MC27 instantly when toggling on or off "reduce transparency" on an M1 Mac Mini
Also noticed MC27 crashing when installing a font on macos

That's a known issue that hasn't been addressed yet.
If you run into this in the future, the easy way to get back to normal is to right-click (ctrl-click) on the Dock Icon for MC and do "Show all windows".
