What's New:

Frontend

  • Added proper support for restoring modal windows (examples: radio stations list, media-oriented open dialog) from minimized state to visible state and bring them to front, when using player with "only in tray" mode (but I suppose it will be valid even for "in taskbar too" case)
  • Preferences->Mouse: added ability to show / hide control panel for Left Button Double Click action.
  • Some cleanups and optimizations.
  • Rename "Rotate video by Z" to "Rotate video vertically"
  • Set default hotkey for "Rotate video by vertically" to Z.
  • Media-oriented open dialog: Slightly changed behaviour of "Add Selected" button - now it start play a selected file if Close After Add is checked & no any file is playing at the moment, in any other cases - it just add file to playlist without begin playing it.
  • Media-oriented open dialog: 'Add files, but dont replace the ones that are already in playlist' option is removed.
  • Removed check that prohibited to run Light Alloy on XP/Vista. You can use it, but XP/Vista obviously not supported anymore, so any crashes on these OSes are not gonna be fixed.
  • Radio stations list: entirely rewritten approach to decode html entities. Now it shouldn't crash player anymore on some lonely symbols (like "&"), also now it can handle much more symbols that can be seen in some song titles (like a quote symbol, or (c) or (r), and much more).
  • Optimized OSD when in over-video mode.
  • Preferences->Events, Video: simplified monitors listing.
  • Playlist: the ">L" marker (last played file) was ignored for LAP playlists that you try to load into player, if there is already loaded some playlist (default LA.lap, for example).
  • History: fixed few UTF8-related issues.
  • Delete file from playlist: was not working for multiple selected files in playlist.
  • Preferences->Mouse->Wheel: Subtitle delay option was broken.
  • Preferences->Keyboard: next chapter command was hidden in Navigation section.
  • Fixed problem when suddenly video picture has been rotated on 90 degrees on player reload.
  • Fixed issue when player cross monitor workarea dimensions on video file open and on scale change (from 50% to 100%, for example)
  • Audio mode: when entering fullscreen, playlist width wasn't audio-like.
  • Media-oriented open dialog: "Add selected" was broken when multiple files were selected.
  • Media-oriented open dialog: "Play file on doubleclick, otherwise just add to playlist" - latter action was broken.
  • Media-oriented open dialog: "Current folder with subfolders" wasn't working as expected
  • Fixed other less noticeable issues.
