Version 2.6.0 is released

Postby SubJunk » Fri Mar 29, 2013 2:52 pm

General:

You can download it from the front page.

This release adds a new feature we're excited about which is Live Subtitles, so instead of having to download subtitles and put them in your folders, now you can do it all automatically! It also sets better subtitle defaults, adds H.264 transcoding support to MEncoder, improves stability and speed and more!


Changes since 2.5.2:

  • General:
    • Added "Live Subtitles" which means you can select subtitles from the Internet via your device. It can be enable on the Navigation/Share Settings page.
    • Improved layout of the Navigation/Share Settings page
    • Implemented default subtitle preferences, to use them:
      • Either use the "Clean Install" option on Windows or put "eng,off;*,eng;*,und" into the "Audio/subtitles language priority" box in the "Subtitles settings" tab on the Transcoding Settings page
    • Fixed DTS muxing with FFmpeg
    • Added new "precoder" functionality, useful for plugin developers
    • Added h.264 encoding support to MEncoder (when renderers specify it)
  • Languages:
    • Updated Czech translation
    • Updated English settings labels
    • Updated Simplified Chinese translation (thanks, lovenemesis!)
  • External Components:
    • Updated h2 database to 1.3.171, which:
      • Increases speed
      • Improves JDK 7 compatibility
    • Updated MPlayer/MEncoder for Windows SB52, which:
      • Improves audio sync
      • Improves DVD support
      • Supports filenames with uncommon characters
      • Fixes memory leaks
      • Improves sync with Real videos
      • Fixes a crash
    • Updated Netty to 3.6.3, which:
      • Makes browsing more stable


Upgrade Notes:

For versions prior to 1.5.0:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. For Windows users you can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

For all versions:
It is recommended (but usually not necessary) to uninstall the older version before installing the new one.


Thanks:

Optimus_Prime for building the OS X version

Our language files are quite different to the PMS ones now so I usually don't merge their language updates. Feel free to submit an update to us :)

It depends which GPU it is, try it and find out ;)

Hi all,

Cool update :)

I do experience one problem after updating and I don't know if it is Java update 17 or the 2.6.0 update but I am not able to play DVD iso/img files anymore! :?

I tried to download the previous version of UMS and it still doesn't work so guess it has to be Java. Anyone experiencing the same issues as me. ?

There Is no errors in the log it just says started / Stopped plz see below. I can also memcoder process starts and disappears again.


03-31 12:42:46 Starting transcode/remux of Title 1
03-31 12:42:47 Started playing Title 1 on your PlayStation 3
03-31 12:43:06 Stopped playing Title 1 on your PlayStation 3

PS3 error code is: (800288E1)

If it is a Java issue, do anyone know where to get Java 7 update 16 so I can roll back java.?

Thanks in advance.
