    • Improved audio/video sync when using MEncoder
    • Improved audio channel detection
    • Fixed support for some plugins
    • Added support for TX3G (MPEG-4 Timed Text) subtitles
    • Added support for WebM videos downloaded from YouTube
    • Fixed DV video detection
    • Fixed "Definitely disable subtitles" option with ASS/SSA subtitles

    • Windows 7 and Vista users are reminded to run as administrator before attempting to automatically update
    • Fixed multithreading bug with MEncoder on Linux
    • Made layout more consistent
  • Plugin Installer:
    • Added Plugin Installer which lets you automatically browse plugins and install them, see this page for details: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=152
  • Web:
    • Added new default web video engine: FFMpeg Web Video
    • Updated WEB.conf with working default video streams
    • Added support for new web protocols: mmsh:// and mmst://

  • Languages:
    • Updated Simplified Chinese (thanks, lovenemesis!)
    • Updated Czech (thanks, valib!)
    • Updated English

Upgrade Notes:

It is recommended (but usually not necessary) to uninstall the older version before installing the new one.
If you would like to take advantage of improved default settings and new engines (recommended) you can delete your old configuration files before installing a new version. For Windows users they are in ProgramData/UMS/.


Thanks:

The PMS developers.
glebb for building the OS X version.

I just donated $50.00 to you using the link on your blog (www dot spirton dot com). The donation is intended for you, and you alone. I will donate to the other developers at a later time. $ is really tight right now, but I wanted to at least show my thanks to you for all of your hard work.

Sorry, your blog is www dot spirton dot com. I couldn't find a way to edit my post.

This is off topic a bit, but is it possible to edit your posts? Also, how do you upload attachments?
