New :

* To maintain compatibility with Windows Vista's user account
control (UAC) mechanism, the Zoom Player installer will move
all files that require modification to the windows application
data directory (Can be reached by typing "%AppData%\Zoom Player"
in any folder window).

In addition to the move, user-specified skins must be re-selected
through the skin selection dialog.

* New "Auto-Configure" button on the Smart Play options dialog.
When clicked, all current decoder configuration will be reset
and then the system is scanned for the best decoder configuration
using the currently installed decoders.

* Added support for Haali's Video Renderer technology.
Haali's Video Renderer uses Bicubic interpolation of video using
3D hardware. This means improved video quality, especially when
up-scaling to higher resolution. Older 3D Graphic card may not
be supported (Cards with PS 2.0 or better should work well).

* Zoom Player can now communicate with uTorrent's Web UI interface
in order to display download progress within the Media Library
and File Browsing fullscreen navigation interfaces. This feature
is accessible under "Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
Fullscreen Navigation / File Tracker". Press the "?" button on
this page for additional information.

* Zoom Player can now keep track with eMule's temporary files directory
in order to display download progress within the Media Library
and File Browsing fullscreen navigation interfaces. This feature
is accessible under "Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
Fullscreen Navigation / File Tracker". Press the "?" button on
this page for additional information.

* New "Download Manager" navigation interface (Ctrl+"J"), allowing you
to get an overview of your currently downloading files (compatible with
eMule and uTorrent).

* The Scene Cut editor has been simplified and enhanced. The Scene cut
editor no longer requires you to click on the save button, saving is
done automatically now. A new edit button allows you to edit entries
without having to remove an old entry first. Lastly, the scene cut
interface layout has been updated to make it simpler to use.

* Zoom Player's ".zpl" playlist format has been extended to support
TAG data (author,composer,artist,etc). All TAG data read from
a media file (ID3,ApeTAG,WMA Tag,etc) is automatically saved
within the play list format (allowing you to override TAG data
display without actually modifying the source media file).

* Options dialog tree nodes now have an icon to make them easier to
navigate and remember.

* New "Navigation Style" Navigation interface, allowing the
navigation skin to be replaced from within the navigation
interface itself.

* New "Open Navigator" button on the Media Library Path Editor.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Video / Aspect Ratio)
instructing Zoom Player "Derived" Aspect Ratio mode to Automatically
Adjust (fix) the Aspect Ratio for badly encoded content.
This would convert 4:3 content encoded as 720x480 to display as 720x540,
720x576 to 768x576, 352x240 to 352x264, 352x288 to 384x288, etc...
Badly encoded 16:9 content is also adjusted in a similar fashion.

This setting also fixes small aspect ratio inaccuracies caused by a
requirement made by video encoders for the video pixel width or height
to be dividable by 16 (or 8 or 4).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
Fullscreen Navigation) allowing you to skip the "Library Filter Mode"
page. With this setting enabled, navigating left on the media library
category list will go straight to the Main navigation menu.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) allowing you to disable the
delete key from erasing the currently playing file.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
Full Screen Navigation) restoring the ability to "Play all
files in this Directory" from the main file list (file and
media library navigators).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
Full Screen Navigation) allowing you to highlight previously
viewed files. This setting with the "remember last
media position" setting (Adv. Options / Playback) and will
highlight any previously viewed file in the Media and File
Navigation interfaces by making its icon semi-transparent.
Please note that this feature can tax the CPU if the play
history (generated by remembering the last media position)
is over a few 100 files.

* New Setting (Avd. Options / System & Files / Paths, Folders
and Files), allowing you to select the Frame Capture (screenshot)
format. BMP, PNG and JPEG are supported.

* New Auto-Segment load setting (Avd. Options / System & Files /
Paths, Folders and Files), allowing you to match file names
automatically by how similar they are. Press the "?" button
for more details on how the matching works.

* New Function (fnBlankMonitors) assigned to the Alt+Shift+"K"
keyboard macro, allowing you to manually toggle blanking
(black-out) of non-playing monitors. The automatic-blanking
of non-playing monitors is accessible through the options
dialog (Adv. Options / System - Blank non-Playing Monitors
while in Fullscreen / Zoom mode).

* New Function (fnFSActMonitor) assigned to the Alt+Shift+"Enter"
keyboard macro, allowing you to go fullscreen on the currently
active monitor, overriding the fullscreen to monitor "X" setting.

* The Zoom Player function selection dialog is now split into three
categories: Content, Interface and Control. The function list is
also sorted, making functions easier to find.

* New Vista specific feature allowing you to make the entire
Zoom Player window semi-transparent. This also requires that
you use a video renderer that would work (Haali's/VMR9/EVR)
and that VISTA Aero is enabled. To use:
Alt+Ctrl+F4 = Fully visible window.
Alt+Ctrl+F5 = 80% visiblity.
Alt+Ctrl+F6 = 60% visiblity.
Alt+Ctrl+F7 = 40% visiblity.

You can also specify exact transparency values using the new
"exTransWin" extended function.

* New "exTransWin" extended function, allowing you to specify
a transparency value (1-255) for the Zoom Player window.
This function requires Windows VISTA with Aero enabled.

* New "IconScale" parmeter for the "ListData" navigation
skin-script command, allowing you to set the size of
list line icons relative to the size of the line height.

source filter adds support for the following audio formats:
AAC, ALAC, APE, FLAC, MP3, MPC, TTA, WV, MO3, IT, XM, S3M,
MTM, MOD, UMX.

* Added support for DCoder's Bass Source filter SHOUTcast streaming.

of SHOUTcast MP3/OGG/AAC content.

to CoreFLAC.

* Added support for FLV4 type Flash Video (".FLV" files).

* The Keyboard Shortcut list (F1) has been restructured, making it
easier to find keyboard macros.

Changes :

+ The default skin is now selected directly from the skin list,
(as the first skin listed) instead of clicking on the default
skin button.

+ The skin selection interface is now sorted alphabetically.

+ The skin selection interface behavior has been changed slightly.
In order to apply a custom tint, you must now click the Apply Tint
button.

+ The default Audio mode skin now has a wider volume bar and
includes a new button that opens the statio manager.

+ The Control Bar and OSD Pop-ups are now accessible even when the
player window is set to "Stay on Top".

+ Pressing stop twice was set to resume playback from the position
prior to the stop function being called. This wasn't too clear so

+ The Navigation interfaces should work slightly faster, especially
in situations where more complex navigation skins are used (skins
with large transparency effects).

(VMR9 Windowed and Windowles should work) and EVR.

Understand and Search.

+ The Girder Exported commands are now sorted and split into
categories, making it easier to program remote devices
and home automation systems.

instead of 50% (which wasn't as useful).

media files (it was previously limited to DVDs).

customize the playlist colors as well.

+ Synchronizing the Subtitles Ahead/Back is now carried in 100ms
increments (instead of the previous 25ms).

Function navigation interfaces now list the custom function as
the actual function name instead of "Custom".

display the file's icon when using the function pane.

"8/16/32" and "12/24/48".

would cause the Zoom Player window to become the top-most
window if the mouse cursor hovered over the timeline.

to "Stay on Top" and Zoom Player set to only show an icon on
the tray area would cause the options dialog to appear behind
