29.0.65 (6/23/2022)

1. Changed: Put the top border back in dialogs that are maximizable because removal was causing drawing artifacts in DSP Studio and possibly other areas.
2. NEW: The option to use forward slashes is in the export playlist and export all playlists dialogs.
3. Fixed: When a client plays a live TV channel using a server tuner, the ""PlaybackInfo" tag was not passed to the client and thus not applied on the client.
4. Changed: A different attempt at smooth progress (local zones only) that's hopefully smoother.
5. Fixed: Seeking holding down next or previous wasn't working since the smooth progress addition.
6. NEW: Added a couple of stock Smartlists: "Television -- Channels" and "Television -- Guide".
7. NEW: Skins can specify "Gridlines" for the Analyzer.
8. NEW: Add Spotlight functions GetPage and ClearCache to MCWS and make Spotlight work outside of MC. Please clear cache by temporarily switching skin.

29.0.64 (6/21/2022)

1. Changed: Spotlight loading page uses skin background and text colors.
2. Changed: Tuner option "Do not show this device in Theater View Tuner Status display" in Standard View tuner configuration dialog.
3. NEW: TV Tuners can be assigned a nickname (created or edited in Standard View) for display in Theater View Tuner Status.
4. Fixed: The smooth player bar would stop being smooth after going to display view and back.
5. NEW: The regular progress bar (not waveform) is smooth as well.
6. NEW: Skins can specify an ANALYZER section and provide a background color (example: <Colors Background="ff00ff" />).
7. Fixed: NVIDIA NVENC hardware video encoding did not work reliably on all newer drivers.
8. Fixed: The smooth progress bar would stop being smooth after going in or coming out of display view.
9. Fixed: Multiple comboboxes could be opened at once (instead of the first closing).
10. NEW: Manage Library Fields remembers the size and position between uses.
11. NEW: Manage Library Fields remembers the filter selection between uses.

29.0.63 (6/16/2022)

1. Changed: Tooltips are hidden in Spotlight when using remote/keyboard navigation.
2. Fixed: Could not select tv show season with remote/keyboard in Spotlight.
3. Fixed: Back navigation in Spotlight was not working properly in Theater View when using Chromium browser engine.
4. Changed: Skin change in MC clears out all Spotlight caches.
5. Fixed: ASS/SSA subtitles with unicode characters in their path or name did not load properly.
6. NEW: The position slider moves more smoothly (drawn each time the slider moves a pixel instead of once a second).
7. Changed: There is more space below the rules and modify sections of the search / smartlist dialog.
8. Changed: A little additional tuning of the edit search / smartlist dialog (feedback appreciated).
9. Changed: The Analyzer DSP uses dark grey for a background color.
10. Changed: The Analyzer DSP uses the text color for the axis labels instead of a hard coded value.
11. NEW: TV Tuners can be hidden from Theater View's "Tuner Status..." display.

29.0.62 (6/14/2022)

1. Changed: Tried a different approach to get rid of the few pixel borders on windows around the frame.
2. NEW: Added an advanced option to turn off blinking of a new Action Window when it is opened.
3. Changed: Updated libplacebo for JRVR for overall stability and compatibility improvements, as well as more accurate ICC profile handling.

29.0.61 (6/13/2022)

1. Fixed: Closing Manage Library Fields dialog window would crash MC in build 60 (on Windows OS).
2. Changed: Removed the tag window "Field" skin item that would draw around images in the tag window.
3. Changed: In some cases the equalizer slider values could show on one line (depending on scale settings) but now it will always put the "dB" on the second line.
4. Fixed: The mouse over state could get stuck in the Parametric Equalizer because timers were not being routed properly.
5. Changed: Removed a face color border line at the top (and possibly bottom) of dialogs.
6. NEW: The tag window can take an EditOverlay color to use instead of the default red.

26.0.60 (6/9/2022)

1. Fixed: The mouse down button state was incorrect in the skin if the window had been maximized.
2. NEW: Added SHOW_THEATER_VIEW_MODE_NETFLIX (12) to MCC_THEATER_VIEW.
3. Changed: The view extra feature can customize the number of levels to search up from the folder for matches (defaults to no levels, can be set up to three).
4. Improved: When typing with an Input Method Editor (e.g. Chinese or Japanese), the composition window and candidate list window will be displayed near the edit window, instead of in a far-away place.
5. NEW: Navigate Spotlight pages in Theater View with remote or keyboard.

29.0.59 (6/7/2022)

1. Fixed: Tabs could blink when changing if an Action Window was open (possibly fixes other visual artifacts).
2. Fixed: Message boxes would be hidden in Theater View when viewing a web page.
3. Changed: Made the minimize, maximize and close buttons respond to the mouse over state in dialogs.
4. Changed: When editing a big field in a popup, the cursor is placed at the beginning of the edit instead of the end.
5. Fixed: Spotlight would not show correct background color for some skins.

29.0.58 (6/3/2022)

1. Fixed: When sizing a large edit in the Tag window editor the scroll position could move down.
2. Fixed: Switching between the legacy and modern tag editing windows could crash in some cases.
3. Changed: Updated the Catalan language (thanks Josep).

Fixed: NVIDIA NVENC hardware video encoding did not work reliably on all newer drivers.

Is this an important overall improvement or is this just a small not that important fix? I dont know what this means but was curious. googled it but did not get much out of it, if it was important for playing movies. Does it have anything to do with RTX card performance maybe?

I think I finally found out what it is. This is the box one tick off so that hardware(your gpu) will take care of the decoding instead of the cpu in Red October HQ and JRVR is also doing this I suppose since it targeted pcs with lesser performance.

Also curious what this is.

For several months I have been seeing random (independent of my MC activity) occasional (maybe once a week) video driver crashes when playing video with MC. I assumed it was an NVidia driver problem.

I have an Asus GeForce GTX 1060 and I keep the drivers up to date.

The change is not related to playback. Its for encoding video, eg. when doing a manual conversion or using DLNA/Media Network, where in some cases the hardware was not used properly.
