* Updated Titan skin:
** Added Comment count to the Lists GUI.
** Updated design of the Search GUI windows, it has been updated such that it presents better with minimal information. Note: The search API does not give extended info for Search so skin should not try to present them. In the future you will be able to design a window which displays detailed info when clicking on a search item.
* Updated DefaultWide skin:
** Added Popular Shows and Movies GUI.
** Updated Trending Shows and Movies GUI to better support Paging.
** Updated Branding.
** Added Likes and Comment counts to Lists GUI.

* Filter out any duplicate comments. This is detected if the same person writes the same comment.
* Cache custom lists during Sync if syncing of lists is enabled in MovingPictures or My Films. This will result in faster syncs when there has been no changes detected to your online lists.
* Updated logger to keep a history of the last 5 log files, this will be really useful for diagnosing issues.

* Fixed Play Sync not respecting Ignored Shows / Movies by user.
* Fixed issue where movie / episode was marked as watched online after stopping near the end of the video but not considered watched in the local database. It now respects the local percent watched setting and sends a 'Pause' signal to trakt. Possible symptom to this is having two or more scrobbles of the same item if you stopped and played again near the end.

* Updated URL used for API to point to a dedicated v2 endpoint ''. This will allow for future improvements to speed and stability of servers for v2 users.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Added Playback / Resume Sync, this is enabled by default and will automatically occur when starting MediaPortal or when Resuming from Standby.
** Added option to enable/disable in Configuration and GUI.
** Added option to configure how far back you want to resume from when you previously left off e.g. 5 secs.
** Added option to configure if playback sync should occur when entering an enabled plugin from the GUI e.g. BasicHome -> MP-TVSeries
** Supported on MP-TVSeries, MovingPictures and My Videos. My Films is not supported yet and requires a change on My Films first.

Note: some skin changes are needed for the above settings to be configured from the GUI. See Skin Designers Guide for more information or Titan skin for reference.

As the v2 API evolves so will the plugin, priority will be to re-instate features which are in plugin but not yet in the API.

* Fixed compatibility with WIFI Remote plugin, resolves a crash at end of episode/movie playback when auto-rate was enabled or when invoked manually.
* Fixed issue seen by some users when decrypting trakt password resulting in login failure. Requires password to be re-entered by user on next sign-in attempt.
* Added error notification when failing to load the UserProfile GUI due to bad response for UserProfile and/or Statistics.
* Improve Episode Watchlist loading in GUI after removing an item.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Request for 1000 items in Comments GUI for shows, movies and episodes. New API only returns 10 items per page by default. Later I will add support to sort by most popular comments which will require a larger set of items to be useful.
* Fixes and improvements to Titan skin:
** Fixed ratings in the Episodes GUI. It was showing TV-Show ratings for every episode.
** Fixed SpinButton position in Comments GUI.
** Fixed 'comment' height in Comments GUI.
** Fixed list description height in Lists GUI.
** Pretty formatting for 'vote' count where ratings are displayed.
** Added 'Watchers' label to Trending Shows and Movies GUI (List and Icon layouts).
** Added some missing images needed in various GUI windows.
* Fixed missing 'Titan Skin' entry in MPEI installer where features are selected for install. User can now choose not to install it.
* Fixed a bug where an error would be shown after returning back to the Calendar GUI.
* Improved syncing from Movie plugins where IMDb was an empty string in a users local database, will be sent as null now.

* Fixed a crash that could occur after watching an episode or movie from your favourte plugins.
* Fixed syncing of movie ratings from online into MovingPictures.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Added support for trakt API v2. Everything that the plugin supports that the API allows has been done, everything else is marked as not ready in the GUI such as:
** Network Activity on the Dashboard.
** Filtering on Recommended Movies and Shows.
** Filtering in Related Movies and Shows.
** Most Recents in your Networks UserProfile.
** User creation (login is still available).
** Search for Users.
** Search by Movie, Show, Episode and Person only returns limited fields. Unlikely to return, may need to re-think skin design to remove fields and only have thumbnails. Will provide details view for these objects when 'clicked' soon to fill the gap.
* Added support to sync movie and episode MediaInfo to trakt. The website does not display these fields yet.
* Added support for Skin Themes, can now include seperate skin files, images, settings etc per theme.
* Added Titan skin file to installation package. Added seperate skin settings for Extended Two theme as it has a trending dashboard on BasicHome.
* Many improvements and bug fixes on Titan skin files.
* Renamed 'Shouts' to 'Comments'.
* Renamed 'Watch List' to 'Watchlist', you may need to clean up trakt categories in external plugins using old name.
* Removed MyAnime and 4TR plugin handlers, skinners should remove corresponding buttons in Settings/Plugins.
* Rate dialog is only a 10-Heart scale now as per website.
* All cached images will be removed from disk after upgrade. File-names are no longer the same so can't be re-used.
* Temporarily disabled config button to delete your library online (will come back after I re-design).
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Added Custom List syncing from to MovingPictures categories and filters menu. This is in addition to syncing of Recommendations and Watchlist which can be enabled from Settings.
* Added a 'Change View' menu item to the Activity Dashboard context menu, this allows you to select between five different views including two new ones: 'Community', 'Followers', 'Following', 'Friends' and 'Friends And Me'.
* Removed trailers handling from trakt plugin, instead will now hand control over to the Trailers plugin.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Updated trailers support for TV Shows, Seasons and Episodes, handled by Trailers plugin by default.
* Added Trailers plugin to MPEI installer package.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Added sync back of play counts to local MovingPictures database from trakt. This does not include watched history (dates), only playcount as that's all we get back. We now check if the local play count is less than the online count.
* Fixed last played date not syncing to trakt when doing back fill syncing (this was due to an API documentation issue), also added support for this from MP-TVSeries episodes. This is used to indicate when you watched an item for first time syncs or when scrobbles were missed e.g. service is down due to maintenance.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

* Updated support for MediaPortal 1.7.
* Added the Extensions plugin to installation package.
* Updated translations from Transifex.

If your using Mediaportal and your not using this plugin in conjunction with the the website, your missing out. This plugin is very polished, has support for Moving Pictures, My Films, TVSeries, Live and Recorded TV including FTR/Argus, myAnime, MyVideos + more.

One of the must have features of this plugin is the watch flag sync, so if you loose your MP install or even use MP on multiple PCs this feature has alot of value.

Being able to view your TV calendars, see what your friends have watched, see what's trending, creating and managing lists of movies/series etc., all from inside Mediaportal, is fantastic.

This plugin adds a whole new level to TV Shows/Movies in MediaPortal! I really love the Calendar view that shows when My Shows are airing next! Plus, the integration with other plugins (TV Series, Moving Pictures, Online Videos, My Films etc.) is awesome. Just jump from your TV/movies plugin to Trakt recommended/suggested shows/movies, select one to jump to the related Trailers in Online Videos, and add to your Watch list if you want to get it later. All with a few clicks of the remote while lying on the couch!

The Trakt plugin shows the same level of stability and excellence as other plugins by ltfearme, like TV Series, and it is only just started.
