4. Changed: The MCWS function File/Delete takes an optional 'Mode' parameter to delete the file from disk or recycle the file.
5. Changed: Building missing thumbnails runs multipe threads at once instead of only running a single thread at a time (the number of threads depends on the setting for thumbnailing).

2. Changed: DLNA: explicitly supply the library server (Panel) port with the presentation page URL for our DLNA renderers and servers.
3. Fixed: DLNA when authentication was enabled, the DeviceDescription.xml for Library Server couldn't be loaded on a remote MC. This means that if the server wasn't manually setup on the remote for authentication it might not show up in the server list.

5. Fixed: "Rating" tag was not written to Apple's Quicktime Extensible tagging location.

9. Fixed: DLNA: Not all SSDP broadcasts were being sent from the SSDP server.
10. Fixed: Tags were not properly saved to Apple's extensible metadata tagging format.

12. NEW: The "Edit Disc Information" dialog shown for CDs now has the Disc # field.
13. Fixed: Non-imported files were not moved with selected media files even if "Move all files..." checkbox was checked on "Rename, Move, & Copy" dialog window, when the action was initiated in Explorer view.
14. Changed: Moving files with "Move all files in folder (including non-imported files)" checkbox checked will only skip moving files that are at "main database location".
15. Changed: "Move all files in folder (including non-imported files)" checkbox on "Rename, Move, & Copy" dialog window is renamed "Move all non-imported files in folder with selected media files".
16. Fixed: The list of fields in a smartlist would get built only one time so if you added a new field it would not appear until after a restart.

6. Fixed: Radio Paradise could play duplicates in some cases.
7. Changed: Made the Playing Now Overview lists no longer ignore the selection. Instead the selection will be used to populate the Tag Action Window and the like.

3. Fixed: The option to advance to the next track didn't work nicely when also picking stop after each item when it played the second to last track in the playlist.

7. Changed: Brought Rotten Tomatoes back to the online movie lookup.


24.0.62 (11/13/2018)

2. Fixed: DVB Subtitle switch was not working with OSD menu.

10. Fixed: Open Weather Map configuration for Theater View was not working.

24.0.61 (11/2/2018)

2. Fixed: DVB Subtitles were not showing.
3. Fixed: Hardware accelerated video decoding did not work properly on some Blu-ray discs with BD-J menus.
4. Changed: Sony .moff and .modd sidecar files are moved/renamed with video and image files they are associated with when using "Rename, Move, & Copy" tool. Similarly the sidecar files are deleted when the media files are deleted.

6. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 4.38.
7. Fixed: Folder import wouldn't remember typed folders in all cases.
8. Fixed: With repeat off, removing the last played file from the playlist wouldn't work with the setting to remove played tracks.
9. Changed: When renaming/moving audio files cover art files that are saved next to the audio files will be COPIED to the destination folder so the audio files will not lose cover art.

12. Fixed: Reduced the startup delay on the WDM driver in cases when the audio pipe was still busy.
13. Fixed: DLNA: When we are trying to detect if another controller has taken over from us to stop our playback of a playlist, we weren't handling the case where a user seeks on a track during that playback.
14. Changed: DLNA: Don't post a WM_UPDATE_DLNA_PLAYBACK_STATE when receiving a transport event unless the state is actually changing. This can fix an issue where renderers that are very slow to respond to play state changes (>5 seconds) confuse logic to determine if we are the DLNA controller in charge (BubbleUPnP wrapping chromecast).
15. Fixed: ATSC Closed Captioning could not be activated using OSD command for playback of recorded ATSC shows.
16. NEW: Live TV Closed Captioning or Subtitles can now be switched using OSD command.

6. Fixed: The date first rated would get set when ripping a CD.
7. Fixed: Picking zones from the zone menu wouldn't work properly if there was a hidden zone.
8. Changed: German translation updated (thanks ByteStar).


24.0.59 (10/24/2018)

1. Changed: When viewing a playlist group, the files will be ordered according to the child playlists (instead of all lumped together). Just set the view to have no sorting and it will show the playlist order.
2. Changed: Made the default sorting for a playlist group no sorting so it just shows the child playlists in order.
3. Changed: Theater View uses ANGLE for rendering, with the Direct3D 11 or Direct3D 9 backends as available, to resolve various issues with OpenGL rendering.

5. Fixed: Curly braces were being removed from HTML code inside style tags.
6. Changed: Panel - Clicking on the current rating level will reset the rating to zero.
7. Fixed: Acquiring from a scanner could fail if the option "Skip file if already in library" was checked. Now scanner files have a filename with the date and time in them so they won't duplicate.
8. Changed: Tweaked the manual thumbnail creation process to try to recover performance after processing a lot of files. Testing on huge libraries appreciated!
9. Fixed: Removing played tracks from Playing Now didn't work nicely on the last track of the playlist.


24.0.58 (10/18/2018)

1. Changed: Fields can be marked as hidden in the Manage Library Fields dialog.

5. Fixed: Importing MKVs with ordered chapters will use the default title's duration for the Media Center database.
6. Fixed: Bookmarks are cleared on playback stop if the position is close to the end, when the precise duration is known, in addition to checking on playback startup against the database duration.
7. Fixed: Pressing DELETE in Parametric Equalizer would delete the Playing Now behind the equalizer instead of effects from the list.
8. Changed: German translation updated (thanks ByteStar).
9. Fixed: WMA files could not be played on Library Server clients without direct file access.
10. Fixed: MC could deadlock when loading a large DLNA server library.
11. NEW: Non-standard file associations for various DSD mimetypes added so that we can see those files from DLNA server libraries that are using those mimetypes.
12. Changed: Some DLNA servers (like on the QNAP) don't properly provide the total number of files matched in a search, which limited us to seeing the first 1000 files in a library.
13. Fixed: madVR could still be taking over the Ctrl+S "Stop Playback" key binding in some cases, now it always sends to Media Center instead. If you want a keybinding to open the madVR settings, open its configuration and assign it to an unused combination.

15. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 4.36.

11. Fixed: The tooltip in the player window could not be translated.
12. Fixed: When popup tooltip transparency was off, the background would always be white even if the text was white. Now it will be black if the text is brighter than half.
13. Fixed: Fonts in the player window could be too short on high DPI.

1. Changed: The file date created is preserved when a FLAC file needs to be rewritten for tagging.
