--- What's new in v6.

00: Legend : "*" "+" "-" "DS" "MC" New : * Since a lot of people don't appreciate the changes microsoft made to Windows Vista with its UAC limitations, the Zoom Player installer now lets you choose between two modes: Standard install where dynamic files are saved in the AppData (Application Data) directory and static files are saved in the install directory. This is required when running Windows Vista with UAC enabled or running Windows XP with a limited user account. Legacy mode where all the files are saved in the selected directory. This is easier to backup, but wont work properly when running Vista with UAC enabled or Windows XP on a limited user account. With Legacy mode selected, the file extension association functionality is restored to Windows XP levels (UAC under Windows Vista limits some file extension association functions such as changing file icons). * To maintain compatibility with Windows Vista's user account control (UAC) mechanism, the Zoom Player installer (using Standard Install) 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. * Zoom Player now warns you when it detects you are running in legacy mode under restricted file access (UAC in Vista or a limited user account under XP/Vista). * 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. * New F8/F9 skin modes (equivalent to the Onyx Lite skin). * Full EVR (Enhanced Video Renderer) support. Please note that due to a Microsoft issue/bug, you must use YUY2 as the colorspace, otherwise color control features will not function. * 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 1.4 or better should work well). = = = = = New Change Fix Digital Signage Media Center

* 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). * You can now specify additional paths for the File Browser (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation). New paths appear as drives. You can add network shares (for example "//USER/Video/" and even local paths such as "C:\Media" creating instant shortcuts to important directories on your system. * The File Navigation interface now shows the drive sizes and free space. * The Chapter editing interface has been modified with a chapter name history drop-down list and instead of a dialog opening up when adding a chapter, now you can just type in the chapter name (or pick from the drop-down history list) and press enter or click the add chapter button, making it easier to add chapters. * 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). * New "Configure Subtitle Filter" button (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you to configure the Subtitle filter more easily. * Options dialog tree nodes now have an icon to make them easier to navigate and remember. * The Media Library, File Browser and Playlist fullscreen navigation interfaces now offer a "Quick Search" option allowing you to more easily browse through large listings. The Quick Search option is accessible by navigating to the right and selecting the "Quick Search" entry. * The Media Library and File Browser navigation functions have been restructured so that the sorting function is now part of a sub-menu.

* "Select All" and "Clear Selection" functions have been added to the Media Library and File Browser navigation interfaces as a sub-menu under the "Select" function. * The Playlist navigation interface has been restructured so that the sorting method is now a sub-menu with more sorting options available (by Size, Directory, Date and Randomly). * Pressing right on the Playlist history navigation interface now brings you to the top of the list (the most recently played item). * 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) allowing you to disable the delete key from erasing the currently playing file. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) allowing you to lock filter/decoder configuration (property) pages to the main user interface (otherwise they appear as a floating window). * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display) allowing you to select custom DVD & Media background images. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) 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 / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation) allowing you to specify the minimum number of characters that appear when using Quick Search. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) 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 / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) allowing you to select if Cut, Copy & Paste operations allow you to overwrite files. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) 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 (Adv. Options / Playback) allowing you to set the "On Play Complete" event (which triggers when a playlist has finished playing) to "Randomize & Replay", giving you another random play method. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback) allowing you to limit remembering the last media position to media files longer than a specified amount of minutes. This is useful when you don't want the last media position remembered when playing short media files. * New Button (Adv. Options / Playback) allowing you to reset the Remember Last Position cache (and play history, which use the same data). * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you to enable/disable Closed Captions support for media files. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you to automatically hide Closed Captions when playing media files. * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you play media files with the subtitles not showing by default. * New "Guard Dog" feature (Adv. Options / System). When enabled, the Guard Dog periodically tests that the Zoom Player process is responding. If the process stops responding for a specified number of seconds, the Guard Dog will close the player and start a new instance using a specified command line parameter list. * New Setting (Adv. 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 (Adv. 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. This feature is on by default for versions that support it. * 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). Pressing ESC restores any blanked out monitor. * 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. * New "fnPosToClipboard" function (Alt+Ctrl+"C") allowing you to copy the current playing position to the windows clipboard (which can then

be pasted in another program). * 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% visibility. Alt+Ctrl+F6 = 60% visibility. Alt+Ctrl+F7 = 40% visibility. 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 "exRandomPlay" extended function, allowing you to discretely set the Random Play setting to on/off (compared to the fnRandomPlay function which toggle between on/off). * New "exSkinTint" extended function allowing you to set the skin's RGB tinting value. Example: zplayer.exe /exfunc:exskintint,$7F3000 * New "/Browse" command line parameter instructing Zoom Player to open the specified web address in its internal web browser. This command line works even if Zoom Player is already running. Example: zplayer.exe /browse:http://www.inmatrix.com * New "/SP:[n]" command line parameter allowing you to turn Smart Play ON/OFF. To turn Smart Play off use "/SP:0" to turn it on use "/SP:1". * New "/Color" command line parameter allowing you to set the skin's RGB tinting value Example: zplayer.exe /color:$7F3000 * New "/Config" command line parameter. Using this parameter, you can specify which local (non-registry) configuration file Zoom Player should use. This parameter is very useful when running multiple instances of Zoom Player, each with a different configuration. If the specified configuration file doesn't exist, Zoom Player will create one (using the default configuration). Usage: zplayer.exe "/config:z:\path to config file\filename.local" Note that the "" characters are required as this command line parameter contains spaces.

* New "/Func" command line parameter. This parameter allows you to instruct Zoom Player to execute functions directly from the command line. This parameter can also be used while Zoom Player is running, enabling simple command-line based automation. Example for always starting with the Main Navigator open: zplayer.exe /Func:fnMainNav For a full function list, see the Function List: http://www.inmatrix.com/zplayer/highlights/zpfunctions.shtml * New "/ExFunc" command line parameter. This parameter allows you to instruct Zoom Player to execute extended functions directly from the command line. This parameter can also be used while Zoom Player is running, enabling simple command-line based automation. Example for always starting with the Playlist Editor open: zplayer.exe /ExFunc:exInterface,2 For a full function list, read the Skinning Tutorial: http://www.inmatrix.com/zplayer/highlights/zpfunctions.shtml * New "/MultInst" command line parameter. Using this parameter instructs Zoom Player to start another instance of the player even if Zoom Player's multiple-instances setting is set to disabled. * New "/nCols", "/nRows", "/Col" and "/Row" command line parameters allowing you to divide the active monitor into columns and rows which can be used to position the player window. The "/nRows" defines the number of rows, "/nCols" defines the number of columns, "/Col" defines the active column (starting with column "0") and "/Row" defines the active row (starting with row "0"). Example: zplayer.exe /ncols:3 /nrows:3 /col:1 /row:1 * New "/StartPath" command line parameter allowing you to set the initial path for the file-open dialog and the file browsing navigation interface. * New "IconScale" parameter 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. * New "<FileIndex>" skin script dynamic variable that returns the current playing index. * New "<PlayListCount>" skin script dynamic variable that returns the current playlist item count without adding the "file(s)" text to the returned value. * All screen saver settings have been moved to: Advanced Options / System / Screen Saver * The internal screen saver has been enhanced to support image slideshows in addition to the plasma background.

* You can now specify if the text information and animated streamers are displayed by the internal screen saver. * Added support for the Microsoft DVD decoders (part of Windows Vista). * Support for PowerDVD v8 filters (CD Audio/H.264/MPEG2 and DVD Navigation) * Added support for the "ffds" XVID sub-type created by the ffdshow encoder. * New "default" button next to the Archive Playback configuration dialog (Adv.

This message is also shown when the playlist item count is modified. * New CommAPI message 1860 allowing you to pass a web address (URL) for Zoom Player to open.

Changes :

+ "Zoom Player WMV Professional" has been renamed to "Zoom Player Home Premium". "Zoom Player Standard" has been renamed to "Zoom Player Home Basic". + Dropping items into the playlist now drops the items at the mouse cursor position in the playlist. + The Color Control and Equalizer navigation interfaces have been redesigned to take less screen space. + 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 station 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 now a "Resume" OSD message pops up. + The Navigation interfaces should work slightly faster, especially in situations where more complex navigation skins are used (skins with large transparency effects). + When setting the navigation interface's line count, the Equalizer and Color Control interfaces ignore a value of "-2" as they are only 3 lines to begin with. + The Frame Capture Alt+"F" (screenshot) function should now work in all video renderers except Overlay Mixer, VMR9 Renderless (VMR9 Windowed and Windowless should work) and EVR. + The archive configuration now allows you to specify dynamic system paths. For example: "%programfiles%\7-Zip\7z.exe" x "%n" "-o%p" Instead of : "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" x "%n" "-o%p" The default values have been updated and you can use the new default button to set them. + The ".iso" and ".img" extensions have been moved from the executable extension list into the archive extension list. With the latest version of 7-Zip (www.7-zip.org) installed, you can now extract and play CD/DVD images directly from within Zoom Player. Make sure to press the default buttons (Adv. Options / System / File Extensions). + The Main Navigation interface should appear much quicker now,

especially when accessed while a video is playing. + The "/X", "/Y", "/W" and "/H" command line parameters now function even if Zoom Player is already running, allowing you to re-position & size the main user interface window from the command line (previously, these parameters only worked when initially running Zoom Player). + The Media Library and File Browser navigation functions have been re-ordered for increased usability. + The File Association options dialog has been restructured for additional clarity. + You can now specify a +6,+8 or +10 values for the navigation interface line count. + Function descriptions have changed to make them easier to Read, 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. + Mouse left click while holding the Alt key now zooms in 10% instead of 50% (which wasn't as useful). + The Alt+"S" keyboard macro that shows the subtitle filter configuration dialog can now be used without any media playing. + Ctrl+"C" now enables/disables closed captioning when used by media files (it was previously limited to DVDs). + You can now select a custom playlist font without having to customize the playlist colors as well. + Synchronizing the Subtitles Ahead/Back is now done in 100ms increments (instead of the previous 25ms). + The Mouse Wheel "function-cycle" function and the Mouse Wheel Function navigation interfaces now list the custom function as the actual function name instead of "Custom". + The AB-Repeat function (Alt+"R") used to loop a specific section of audio/video will now highlight the timeline to indicate the looping section (only on the default and newer skins). + When using the File Browsing and Media Library navigation interfaces, the Copy & Paste functions will now show an OSD message while moving files and a success/fail OSD message when the file operation completes. + The File Browser and Media Library navigation interfaces will now display the file's icon when using the function pane. + If no navigation interfaces are enabled through the options dialog, the main navigation interface will no longer be accessible. + The DVD Fast Forward and Rewind rate now support two more values: "8/16/32" and "12/24/48".

+ Opening "mms://" addresses should now work a little better. + When opening the player with secondary windows open (playlist editor, equalizer, etc...) the keyboard focus did not remain on the main window. + Several items on the right-click menu have been renamed for clarity. + The "Add Chapter" function's keyboard macro has been changed from "C" to Ctrl+Shift+"C". + Real-Time Frame rate reporting on the information dialog should now work with Custom Video Renderers as long as they support the IQualProp interface. + The "1600,1601 and 1703" Audio Track CommAPI commands are now accessible for media files (no longer limited to DVDs). + The "1700,1701,1703 and 1704" Subtitle CommAPI commands are now accessible for media files (no longer limited to DVDs). + Updated description of video renderers. + When opening the options dialog on a monitor with resolution too low to display the entire dialog, the dialog will now cover more of the screen area. + Enabling/Disabling the DVD & Media Background images has moved to "Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display"

Fixes : - A bug in the archive extracting code could cause extracted archive to extract in the wrong directory under some conditions. - When random play was enabled and only one file was playing, the "On Play Complete" event was called if the same file was opened twice. - The external command to "Enqueue/Play with" Zoom Player has been moved to a shell extension under Windows 2000/XP/Vista, making it faster and more reliable. - Playing the next/previous file in the directory, or using similar functions such as playing the next/previous file of the same type in the directory didn't work with UNC paths (network paths). - When extracting and playing the content of an archive file, the first file in the archive would be loaded twice in succession. - Some M3U playlist files wouldn't load properly if the files within contained ANSI characters which conflicted with UTF8 decoding. - Setting a custom aspect ratio with a "0" value could cause Zoom Player to crash with an invalid division by zero error. - A sorting glitch was fixed in the file browser and media library navigation interfaces where the "Go to previous directory" option appeared at the bottom of the file list instead of at the top.

- Deleting entries from the Chapter Browser navigation interface no longer causes a "Divide by Zero" error in some cases. - Having both "Auto-Size User Interface to maintain Video Aspect Ratio" and "Prevent moving the user interface off the primary monitor" enabled could cause a freeze when using the Alt+"4" or Alt+"5" functions to Zoom the video window beyond the size of the monitor. - When using the internal image decoder, Zoom Player can now detect badly named image files (such as PNG files with JPG extension). Supported mislabeled image formats include: BMP, JPG, PNG. - Some MJPEG files may not have been detected properly by Smart Play. - Fix for the Zoom Player Install Center where it wouldn't recognize certain updates as up to date if they were installed to a unicode file path. - The Zoom Player registration key is now searched for in both the Zoom Player directory and in the application data directory. - Pressing "Del" to erase the currently playing file with other entries selected in the playlist would not remove the erased file from the playlist. - ID3/TAG display of unicode file name would show "???" if the audio file had no ID3 data. - ID3/TAG display of unicode file name would show "???" if the audio file ID3 data containing unicode text and the Windows country code was non-english. - ID3/TAG display wouldn't always update when loading certain audio file formats. - When trying to select a DVD auto-execute software (Adv. Options / Playback / DVD / DVD Tools), typing in the "New" field would not enable the "Apply" button. - The Skip to the next file in the playlist when an unplayable file is encountered function no longer skips to the next file if the entire playlist is unplayable. This fix prevents the playlist from looping in error messages forever. - Improved Network path support for paths starting with "//". - The internal image decoder can now load images from network paths. - Ejecting a drive while listening to streaming media could cause playback to stop. - Using the "," character as part of a chapter name would truncate the chapter name. - When specifying a transparent color for the Timeline, loading a different skin that didn't contain timeline transparency would not clear the transparent regions properly. - Fixed a bug where applying a custom File Extension Association icon

would not always work properly. - Failing to load a media file with a background image enabled could cause the background image to display in an incorrect aspect ratio. - The TV Pattern mode would incorrectly draw a red vertical line at some resolutions. - The background image and circle pattern would not respect the source relative stretch feature when it was set to a specific monitor (the stretch value was applied to all monitors). - Cosmetic fix for the navigation scrollbar widget being slightly inaccurate position wise. - Under some conditions, the TCP port would not become accessible. - File Association should now be working under Windows VISTA with UAC mode enabled. - The "Continue to the next item on the playlist when an invalid file is played" didn't work when the file was missing rather than corrupt/problematic. - Using the play next file in the same directory should no longer flash the media background images between files. This fix also makes the images load faster. - When the player was set to "Stay On Top", some options dialog sub-menus would appear beneath the options dialog, making them inaccessible. - When Stay On Top was enabled, some interfaces were appearing behind the main user interface. - Setting a Playlist Font/Color override would return to the skin values when switching skin modes. - When the player window would lose focus, the control bar stopped auto-hiding. - With some file formats, the playlist would not update the total playlist duration properly. - Enabling the "Show Time Seek Position Over Timeline" feature would cause the Zoom Player window to become the top-most window if the mouse cursor hovered over the timeline. - Trying to open the Options dialog with the main window set 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 the main window. - Monitor Powerdown will no longer be disabled when playing in windowed mode (Powerdown will only be disabled when fullscreen). - Exporting Girder commands while using a local configuration file would not use the correct window name, preventing the exported girder file from working.

- More cases of unsupported hardware color control are now detected by the color control navigational interface. - Disabling the "'Del' key moves media files to the recycle bin (with confirmation)" setting would erroneously disable the erase function from working in the media library and file browsing navigation interfaces. - Trying to play Audio-CDs through the file browsing navigation interface would not play the file. - Detaching the control bar would not snap its position to the previously saved detached position under some conditions. - With a detached Control Bar, it was possible for the mouse wheel functions not to work if the control bar was moved. - Trying to play streaming content while in DVD Mode would not switch to media mode automatically and then fail to play. - The Context Navigator did not use the scripting parameters assigned to it correctly. - The Contact Sheet creation form didn't allow you to select the contact sheet color values. - Some navigation interface titles could not be translated into other languages. - The "exSetMode" function would not switch modes properly under some conditions. - Switching between Media/DVD/Audio mode could result in an Audio mode skin loaded in DVD mode. - Switching between skin modes in the skin selection dialog would not update the available skin lists properly between modes. - Opening the skin selection dialog with a navigation interface visible would not show the correct tint values (it showed the skin's tint values rather than the navigation tint values). - When Stay On Top was enabled, the seek-to hint window would appear behind the main user interface window. - The "Scrollbar Highlight" color for forced Playlist colors was not being saved properly. - If the internal screen saver got activated with the open file dialog already open, it could cause Zoom Player to become non-responsive. - Navigation interfaces would not appear when using VISTA Aero and having the blank secondary monitor feature enabled. - Pressing Insert in the File Navigator with no files listed would raise a List out of Bounds error. - The File Navigator would forget the last active drive if you opened and closed Zoom Player without opening the navigator.

- The "/F:[x]" and "/Z:[x]" parameters did not go Fullscreen on the right monitor if Zoom Player was in window mode. - Fixed a buffer overlow issue thanks to Luigi Auriemma. - Fixed a number is not integer error with the uTorrent file tracker. - The Zoom Player install center would not allow you to configure filters if Zoom Player was installed in a unicode directly. - Loading ".WPL" playlist containing network addresses should now look for the files over the network rather than in a local path. - The basic options dialog tree list wouldn't translate properly. - Windows Media files that required a password to play would fail to display the password prompt and fail to play. - Switching the Navigation Interface color-tint through the skin selection interface could cause a crash under certain circumstances. - Playing a media file from one of the navigation interfaces no longer shows the media background image before playing the file. - Having the Control Bar Auto-Show and then having it Auto-Hide if the distance is too big could cause the Control Bar to remain on-screen under some circumstances. - The Scene-Cut Jump and Mute Audio functions were not working correctly. - Clicking on the Zoom Player tray icon while fullscreen on a secondary monitor would cause the Zoom Player window to resize without drawing the skin properly. - Improved stability for DCoder's DVB filter's graph building. - Ejecting a non-playing CD/DVD/USB device while a DVD is playing would cause the DVD to stop. - The Next/Previous chapter functions were not working properly in the default DVD skin. - On some non-standard resolution, the fullscreen navigation interface would not cover the right-most pixel. - Playing audio files with file extensions that could also be used for video files (such as ".MP4") would have Zoom Player remember the last media position for the audio file, even if remembering audio file last position was disabled. - Playing a Matroska file with External subtitles would not allow you to cycle through the external subtitle tracks with Ctrl+"B". - Having On Play Complete set to "Do Nothing" while having "Remember Last Media Position" enabled would cause the video to rewind, even though it should have paused on the last frame. - CommAPI message 5130 (call navigation function) was not working. - Under Windows VISTA, pressing Alt+Tab with some interfaces would

cause several buttons/checkboxes to disappear. - Filter property pages will now appear on the same monitor as the Zoom Player user interface. - Several small cosmetic glitches fixed in the default skin. - Cosmetic glitch fixed in the advanced playlist control (buttons could overlap). - Several navigation interfaces were not showing unicode text correctly. --* The Complete Change list history can be found on-line at: http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_whatsnew.shtml --- End.
