Upgrade Notes:

For all versions below 3.2.0:

For all versions below 3.0.0-b1:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. Windows users can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

I haven't tried it, but programs compiled and coded for Java 4, 5 and 6 still run fine with Java 7, so yes it should run with Java 8.

3.5.0 is still stripping MKV container. Selecting file opens as MPEG with no engine names in trancode folder. OPPO 93. Going back to 3.3.0 corrects everything.

So are the MPlayer/MEncoder improvements only for Windows or also for Mac?

Cache performance in 3.5.0 is poor and hide content from folder, so I downgrade to 3.3.0.

Regards,

Jorge

Will this version re-create the database or can it use the old database from v3.4.2 (Windows Version) ?

thanks
