showtime-2.99.534

Last stopgap before 3.0
Added by Andreas Smas over 9 years ago

This is the last release (by me) before setting the 3.0 stamp. Hopefully there are no serious issues lurking and if so I hope to be able to release 3.0 in a couple of days.

I know there is still alot of bugs (although not as many as I would expect, to be honest) to be squashed and a lot more features to be implemented.

On top of this I have a lot more ideas in my head for stuff I would like to add. But as always, time is a limiting factor.

The new PS3 build are available at the usual place

A list of changes since 2.99.401 release:

  • Popup menu redesigned a bit
  • Add support for Windows 1251 codepage
  • upnp: Make sure that we really find subtitles when doing a blind probe. This bug has caused problems for some people making some video not start at all.
  • Make it possible to enter credentials in the auth popup that is not saved to disk
  • Add support for passing mimetypes internally. This speed up media loading and playback start.
  • ps3: Update XMB icon (better centered)
  • Make SRT subtitle discovery better
  • Add support for setting subtitle output delay
  • Add seek-by-thumbnail in the command popup menu (looks very bad on ps3 at the moment though)
  • ui: Redesign the auth popup
  • Improve the setting views
  • ps3: Add support for BD remote
  • Add support for cycling between audio and subtitle tracks using a single button
  • Make presentation of audio and subtitle tracks better
  • Improve subtitle rendering. There is a lot of changes here. see bc0cf58e and 76142920
  • ps3: Display all reasonable entries found in system VFS root as services on their own
  • ps3: If display operates in non-square pixel 16:9 mode, scale UI accordingly
  • Use libav.org's recently released 0.7 version (with a couple of bug fixes on top)

Thank you bro for updating so quick :).

Wish you the best for 3.0 and may luck bring you closer to Digital audio output support. I do know that progress is rather slow on that but time will tell if and when we get it.
