3. Fixed: Flac in Ogg streams were broken by the changes in 27.0.85.

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).

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.

27.0.59 (1/29/2021)

1. Fixed: Tooltips were blocking keyboard input to underlying fields.
2. 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.
3. Fixed: Mouse button release events were being compressed (and as such missed under some conditions).
4. Fixed: Starting a second instance of MC to play a file (common with shell associations) wasn't able to send that information to a running MC.
5. New: The mc27 stub executable can now start MC with or without a command line whether or whether not MC is running in Media Server mode.

27.0.58 (1/25/2021)

1. Changed: Waveform data is no longer being created for Video content.

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. NEW: mc27 stub executable. This can be used to send commands to a running MC (like the windows version does).
15. Changed: When editing a field, if one of the values is empty it will be added to the list of choices instead of removed.
16. NEW: AviSynth Filter is added to the white list for "video post processing" filters.
17. Changed: Improved the DSP Studio analyzer.
18. NEW: DTS parsing gets the proper number of channels.
19. Fixed: APL files were not always working properly for the last few builds.

22. Changed: Improved threading decisions for image drawing, greatly speeding up the Analyzer DSP and other drawing tasks.

24. NEW: Added a match mode to the ListFind(...) expression function to switch between partial matching and full matching.
25. Faster: Optimized the way the analyzer works to make processing faster.
26. Fixed: Manually editing a DMS TV channel did not work (because a list of tuners were presented, instead of a list of devices);
27. Fixed: MP4 files could report double the proper length in some cases.
28. Changed: When removing the played tracks from Playing Now, it now removes the just played track as well.
29. 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.
30. 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).
31. 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).
32. Changed: Right aligning the tag saving statusbar text so the user customized text stays visible.
33. NEW: The display view window position is reset when doing "Reset window position settings...".
34. Changed: Beyonwiz U4 device is white-listed as a supported DMS TV device. Hope it works!

36. Fixed: After downloading from library server, the file could be incorrectly removed from the server's library.
37. NEW: Made stopping after a number of tracks work with DLNA.
38. Fixed: Picking no options in the Rename, Move, & Copy dialog could result in the files actually getting renamed to <No Change>.
39. Fixed: Loading and saving VST3 presets could misbehave.

1. Changed: Made date imported editable like last played (instead of clear only).
2. Fixed: Loading and saving VST3 presets could misbehave.
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.
9. Fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, the later recordings might include data for previous shows.
10. 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.

5. NEW: Added a Not(...) expression function to flip the state of a variable.

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).
