2. Fixed: The combobox height could be too tall when editing list fields.
3. Changed: Some tuning to the new Browse/Rules function (use full path, named categories, etc.).
4. Changed: "Camera" field is made "Clear-only", so users will not be able to change camera Make and Model in EXIF image tags.  Also user-defined custom fields "Make" and "Model" will not be supported in EXIF handling.

32.0.3 (1/15/2024)

1. Fixed: Analyzer could show extreme numbers when playing noise files (for not a number values) but now it simply shows a question mark.

4. Changed: Back to exit Theater View only exits if a half second has passed since the last back click.

6. Changed: When saving to XMP and ITPC image tags, "Artist" field that contains semi-colon separated list in MC will be saved in multiple "creator" (XMP) and "by-line" (IPTC) tags, instead of a single one.
7. Fixed: MC did not read XMP tags "xmp:Label" and "xmp:Rating" from the XMP segment.

1. Changed: Updated the copyrights to 2024.
2. Changed: Made a few improvements to the new download library and files tool.

5. Fixed: Some XMP image tags that involve alternate language arrays were not saved properly.

32.0.1 (1/9/2024)

1. Fixed: When playing an ATSC channel, the context menu item "Audio Programs -> Use current audio stream as default" did not work for some channels.

11. NEW: Added an Enable ZoneSwitch toolbar button.
12. Changed: [TV Channel Number] field is now available for Media Type "Video", in addition to Media Type "TV" (for TV Channels).
13. NEW: If the remote control button "Recorded TV" can not find "Video\Shows" in Theater View, a few additional locations are tried to locate it, including root level "Shows" and "Recorded TV" and "Video\Recorded TV", etc.
14. NEW: Full screen video window will have a Minimize button in addition to the Window Size button and Close button.
15. Changed: When adding cover art to a file, if no art is found next to the file it will search known subfolders as well (https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/View_Extras).

21. NEW: Copy Library and Files from Server.
22. NEW: When recording TV shows, "TV Channel Number" field is filled with appropriate data for all channel types that carry such data (<major channel>-<minor channel> for ATSC, <logical channel number> for other types).  For ATSC and DVB, if recording is in WTV format the file is tagged with this data too.
23. NEW: Added a Display View toolbar button.
24. NEW: TV recording in WTV format will save "time recording ended" into the tag "WM/WMRVEndTime".

30. NEW: Added "Sorting" roller to Theater View library views to allow sorting using any of the default rules.
31. NEW: Added optional AlternatingColors property for Flush visualization component. It is of the form "N;HexColor1;HexColor2..." where N is the number of seconds between color changes. For example, "10;0x0000FF;0xFF0000;0x00FF00" would alternate between red, green, and blue every 10 seconds.
32. Changed: Removed some old code that no longer has any effect for playing a live TV channel on a Library Server client (using a tuner on the server).
33. NEW: Added "Duplicate" to the right-click menu on library views to make a new copy of the view.
34. NEW: Added TRACKINFO_INSERT_BACK_COLOR and TRACKINFO_INSERT_TEXT_COLOR to track info pages so the hex of each color can be loaded.
35. Fixed: Improved support for JPEG images with uncommon color encoding.
36. Fixed: Starting playback of a grouping of tracks with shuffle on would always start at the same track.
37. Fixed (possibly): bda TV might crash on stop (if stopping happened shortly after start up).
38. Changed: An empty password is no longer accepted to enter party mode.
39. Changed: A 400 error is returned from MCWS when the function name is not found.
40. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukáč).
41. Fixed: Calling MCWS Playback/PlayByFilename with invalid filenames now returns an error.
42. Fixed: TV tuner event code was being repeatedly executed unnecessarily when playing DVB TV with Transport Stream Time-shifting.
43. NEW: Implement the DLNA AVTransport command GetCurrentTransportActions dynamically according to play state.
44. Fixed: For the DLNA transport state, Always return 1 for the playspeed. Was 0 (when stopped) which appears to be incorrect.
45. Fixed: Make precision zone sync feature option determine whether or not it's exposed in the AVTransport XML play command. Fixes non-compliance with the spec.

49. Changed: Re-enabled writing of custom field "Event" to XMP metadata in images.
50. Fixed: MC wrote a new entry "State/Province" into a jpg image file's MJMD segment each time tags are saved to the image, resulting in multiple entries in the image.
51. Changed: Updated libplacebo in JRVR to the latest version.
52. Fixed: SRT subtitles with size parameters would render generally too small.

Just updated to 32.

In 31, ctl+G collapses the tree.

In 32, ctl+G causes the spinny thinking symbol to display for about 20 seconds, and then MC crashes.

Could you share a crash dump?  Look in the wiki for information on how to gather.  Thanks.

The size of my backup shrank from 68MB in 31 to 52MB in 32.

Is that expected and ok?

I ask because the trend has been to smoothly increase as my library grew.

This is the first time in 14 years that my backup got smaller.

This field's Edit Type doesn't seem to be defined when returned via MCWS.

Code: [Select]
   'DataType' => 'String'
   'DisplayName' => 'DVD Video Info'
   'EditType' => 'Unnamed (6)'
   'Name' => 'DVD Video Info'

The size of my backup shrank from 68MB in 31 to 52MB in 32.

I found the cause of the backup shrink.

In 31 backup, User Settings.ini is 17MB.
In 32 backup, User Settings.ini is 112KB.

It seems a bunch of data in the "Navigation History" section of the ini was deleted in 32.

Is this ok? Can I trust the 32 backup or should I revert to 31?

My 65 year old brain ain't what it used to be. I forgot I discussed this issue a year ago with Matt. Bloat sometimes builds up and can be fixed by closing all tabs and waiting a while. Now with 32 it seems that bloat is also fixed during the upgrade process.

Matt helped me fix this.

In the following resource.xml line, Param was incorrectly set to -1 instead of 0.
<Entry Key="Ctrl;G" Command="25016" Param="0" TranslateFlags="2" />

Param = -1 in V31 collapses the tree, but in V32 causes a crash. The fix is to set Param=0.

I do not recall seeing any offers/notifications to upgrade? Possible because you are send these to my old tpg.com.au addresses which have been shut down by my internet provider - instead of the Gmail address I have on record somewhere also when paying for the last upgrade to MC31.... Please look up my user detail and delete all references to tgp.com.au as it may be receiving mail but I no longer have access to it... If I need to PM to some other JRiver address to sort this please let me know?

I just changed your address for your MC31 license to the address you use for the forum.

Only your MC28 license used the latter address.

You can change your address on the Restore Page.

Gmail has gotten worse about putting lots of valid mail in the spam folder.  I check mine every few days and almost always find something important.

I'm sorry JimH, I also missed the upgrade email notification.
Any change you can hook me up with an extended upgrade discount?

Nevermind, I just payed full, only $2 extra I'll live.
