« on: July 28, 2022, 03:09:33 pm »

Download 64-bit build
https://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v29/latest/MediaCenter290080-x64.exe (works on 64 bit systems only)

Download 32-bit build
https://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v29/latest/MediaCenter290080.exe (works on all systems)

29.0.80 (7/27/2022)

1. Changed: Internal change on DirectShow based TV playback and recording.
2. Changed: Adjusted how the volume fade feature is done in the Scheduler (now it takes a number of seconds for more control and adds labels).
3. NEW: Left-click and hold on file in list or top player bar text launches Spotlight in a new tab.

29.0.79 (7/25/2022)

1. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 8.35 (thanks Matt).
2. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
3. Fixed: Handheld upload could double the extension since the extension dot fix.
4. NEW: Experimental support for AC-4 audio in MPEG-TS video files.
5. Changed: Added seconds precision to Media Network reporting instead of just minutes.

29.0.78 (7/21/2022)

1. Changed: Switched resolution thumbnails back to 400x400 but now check either dimension instead of both.
2. Fixed: A wait cursor is shown when filling list controls (for slow fills).
3. Fixed: Linking a car radio button to itself would crash.  Fixed the crash and also no longer show car radio choices when linking to a playlist.
4. Changed: Made the thumbnail size threshold for showing the full image bigger (so bigger thumbs still show it).
5. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).

29.0.77 (7/20/2022)

1. Fixed: Some menu items didn't work properly in the tree since adding the expand / collapse item.
2. Improved: Increased the thumbnail compression quality, and removed artificial sharpening which often resulted in emphasized artifacts.

29.0.76 (7/19/2022)

1. Improved: Enlarged the size of the grab borders during image editing.
2. Changed: Renamed the option "Show a link arrow" instead of "Show a link checkbox" to be more clear about the behavior.
3. NEW: Made a history menu item shown in the view header menu that links to past views.
4. Changed: Full resolution thumbnails are used after 300x300 instead of 400x400 so they should appear a little sharper close to that threshold.
5. Improved: Thumbnails for groups of files that contain audio will only use audio (instead of also using images and data).

29.0.75 (7/18/2022)

1. Changed: Updated Japanese translation (thanks Yasuhide Nagasawa).
2. NEW: Added expand and collapse to the right-click menu for the tree.
3. Fixed: The JRVR Cubic scaling type was not being saved properly.
4. Fixed: Tamil characters would not render properly.
5. NEW: Added a "Reset" button to Convolution.
6. NEW: Added a checkbox to the top of a playlist view "Expand links" that allows turning off link expansion (runtime only, not saved).
7. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
8. NEW: Sat>IP devices whose channel list URLs do not conform to Sat>IP specs will also be supported as Sat>IP devices (previously they can only be supported as IPTV devices).

29.0.74 (7/14/2022)

Fixed: The ";" with "; " replacement wasn't working properly in build 73.

29.0.73 (7/14/2022)

1. Changed: Switched the expression syntax so optional parameters don't get broken up for translation (was using optional:, now uses optional,).
2. Changed: Ran all the translations through the tool to update to the latest strings from the source code.
3. Changed: Made the volume for the scheduler go from 0 to 100 instead of 0 to 1.
4. Changed: Only fields would get ";" replaced with "; " at display time.  Now list style expressions are evaluated as well.
5. Changed: Added RM to the list of default import types.

This is soo good!. I predict it will join other hall of fame improvements like 1) copy/paste tags and 2) remembering the state of tabs.

If you want to achieve perfection suggest you do the same for album thumbnails when viewing video that also has images and data tagged with the same artist and album. I also have data and image info files imported with many of my video files.

I see above that you did a lot of work in this release to improve thumbnails.

Please consider making the thumbnail in the tag action window scale infinitely large as its pane is dragged wider.

Very strange. I'm seeing an improvement but not as expected.

With 29.0.74 a complicated view would take say 12 seconds to display. For the first 6 seconds MC would appear to be dead, then the wait cursor would appear for the last 6 seconds.

With 29.0.80 I still see the initial 6 seconds with no wait cursor, after which the wait cursor appears for 0.5 seconds and then the view is updated.

In other words, you've improved the performance of refreshing complicated views by 50% but not fixed the wait cursor.

If you can double the speed of views without even trying, imagine what you could do if you put your back into it.

When I drag a folder of media files into the window and click the "Play" option, if there is a TXT file in the folder, JMC seems to prefer opening the TXT file and doesn't play any of the media files.  Is this a bug?
