2. Fixed: Dividers in Parametric Equalizer did not always save their text properly.
3. NEW: DSP Presets can be saved and loaded from files.
4. Changed: Removed length limitation on string data in certain MP4 atoms (would make the waveform analysis incorrect on M4A files).
5. Fixed: Resources for covert 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.
6. NEW: Specifying "Selected" on the command line will grab the selected files.
7. NEW: Specifying "Shuffle" as one of the files on the command line will shuffle the selection.
8. Changed: Made the program message when Google has shut off translation (instead of just trying again and again failing).
9. Fixed: Filling a translation from Google was not working.
10. Fixed: Firing an MCC 22003 on a not found index would crash.

2. Fixed: ARM64 builds weren't always detecting NEON math co-processing.
3. Changed: When moving cover art to a new folder, a confirmation is shown before moving all the files.
4. NEW: The statusbar is updated from a thread so blocking to access a drive spinning up won't block the program.
5. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
6. 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.
7. Fixed: Possible deadlock when starting to play a DMS TV channel.
8. Fixed: The track info processor was not handling all the formats properly since the parenthesis addition.
9. Fixed: Text vertical alignment is properly maintained in nested tags.
10. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
11. Changed: Equalizer presets are sorted by name (instead of randomly).
12. 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.
13. Fixed: Seeking to end of file in video playback sometimes was ignored.

18. Changed: Made digital TV code more robust against bad data.

27.0.37 (12/1/2020)

2. Fixed: The track info processor was not handling all the formats properly since the parenthesis addition.
3. Fixed: Text vertical alignment is properly maintained in nested tags.
4. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
5. Changed: When renaming a library, if you rename the active library, the name used for backups will also be updated.

11. Fixed: A possible crash when decoding a corrupt APE file.

15. Fixed: APE decoding could leak.
16. 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 (11/20/2020)

1. NEW: Fast Forwarding and Rewinding are now supported for Streaming (DMS) TV tuners.

4. NEW: The column presets menu shows names of previous saves for quick overwrite (instead of requiring entering the name).
5. NEW: The Rename, Move & Copy presets menu shows names of previous saves for quick overwrite (instead of requiring entering the name).
6. Changed: The program can close if Analyze Audio is showing but not processing.
7. Fixed: If a tool was running at shutdown, it would message and not allow shutdown, but the tray icon would go away anyway.
8. Changed: Error checking is added when loading certain TV settings to avoid crashes.
9. NEW: Added the MCWS call GetLinkExpanded to get a link expanded set of files.

16. Fixed: When resuming normal play from FF/REW on a time-shifting TV tuner, the OSD paused status could be wrong.
17. Changed: Tag dump in the Tag Action Window no longer tries to analyze video files (it could be slow and rarely returned anything).
18. Changed: Resetting the window positions will also reset the main program position.
19. Changed: Clearing Playing Now on a remote zone will work a little better.
20. Changed: Stopping remote zones would not actually take effect before returning so the state could be incorrect.
21. NEW: Made the View > Load / Save View menu have the previous save names so you can just overwrite without entering the name.
22. Changed: When the playback state changes in remote zones, the playback engine will be notified right away (instead of waiting to know).
23. Fixed: When showing and hiding the tree, drawing artifacts could appear until you forced a redraw.

21. Fixed: TV time-shifting files were not cleaned up after time-shifting session ended.
22. Fixed: "Clean up time-shifting folders" did not do anything.

26. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).

1. NEW: Hardware accelerated video decoding using VA-API on Intel and AMD GPUs (and pre-existing support for NVIDIA through NVDEC).
2. Changed: Audio Path will show "Bitstreaming" when audio is being bitstreamed instead of potentially confusing audio stream details (which identified the physical transport of the audio, not the audio contents).
3. Fixed: Setting the Last.fm option could not work if returning from options switched zones.
4. Changed: Adjusted logging for DLNA TV device discovery.
5. Changed: When building playlists for a handheld using relative paths, if nothing is in common, it will use dots in the path to start at the root then build the path (may make Android devices work better).

1. Fixed: Visualizations weren't working in 27.0.18.

8. Changed: Respond to a Playlist/Build call with the new playlist ID.
9. Changed: The genre, artist, album, composer, track #, and name are read from the iTunes database during import (so files don't need to be tagged for those fields).

11. Changed: MC will reload TV channel logos during EPG loading (if EPG data file contains the logo images) if previous image file is missing.

22. Changed: Lists will set the cursor in some cases like hoovering over the rating or a link.
23. Changed: On the "Schedule Guide Reloading" window, the "Next Load" column will include a date, instead of just time.
24. Fixed: SiliconDust EPG repeat loading time could be wrong.
25. Fixed: WAV files with a zero sample rate could crash (now they are rejected).
26. NEW: TV EPG loading modes will have their own start time settings so users can configure multiple modes to start at different time of the day.
27. Fixed: Background EPG loading threads could be unnecessarily created in rare cases even though no EPG loading mode was scheduled to start at the time.

27.0.15 (9/21/2020)
