Release 0.5.0b5: Time for a release candidate?

OK, couldn’t resist making a micro release (Torrent, HTTP, source) to fix a couple of problems.

  • NEW: Mixdown for AAC 5.1 (many thanks to tokyovigilante for the patch!) Those HD trailers from Apple work perfectly now.
  • FIX: Crash playing certain MKV files (great bug report by bmfrosty).
  • FIX: DVD playing over SMB (and other network protocols) should work now. mtehonica, if you could test, that would be much appreciated.

Bob Jelica pointed out that it might be nice to list areas to focus on testing with each release, and I think it’s a great idea. Here are the areas which I think might still be problematic and for which it would be awesome to get some detailed Trac reports for:

  • Power saving settings (sleep display, sleep machine) in the app.
  • OS X screen savers and multiple displays.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! If you haven’t stopped by the forums yet, come on in, the water is warm and there are no sharks.
