Version 6.8.0 released

Post by SubJunk » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:31 pm

General:

You can download it from the front page.

It improves the first time wizard, fixes Java 9 support on Windows, improves CoverArtArchive integration, improves 4k support, and more!


Changes since 6.7.4:
  • General:
    • Added shared folder selection to the wizard
    • Improved matching of results from CoverArtArchive
    • Improved text in the wizard
    • Fixed detection of Java Runtime Environment 9 on Windows
    • Fixed charset handling during subtitle conversions
    • Fixed video not always transcoding when encoded audio passthrough is used
    • Fixed an exception if the renderer replied to GetProtocolInfo but didn't include sink
    • Formatting in UMS.conf
    • Various bug fixes
  • Languages:
    • Added Bengali translation (empty for now, please contribute to it on Crowdin!)
    • Improved support for Japanese characters
  • Renderers:
    • Added 4k support to VLC for iOS
    • Added support for sending 4k MP4 videos to PS4 natively

Compatibility notes:

These releases work on all versions of Java 7 onwards.
The Windows releases work on Windows Vista onwards. We are working on supporting older versions.

Sorry as you not provide information on which OS you are running the UMS and you not send the log than your statement is useless.
