TV Movie Clickfinder 5.2 users, please see this post. A small bug crept into the release in the last minutes.



- Many GUI and skin improvements for more smoothness including some nice animations. (new recorded tv look, changed font, "watched" status, ...)

- New thumbnail handling with configurable quality & size options. Relying on locally cached thumbs MP should work much smoother especially in the music part.

- A completely re-written Home-Menu-Control offering skinners more flexibility.

- A completely re-written Powerscheduler - being fully event driven now.

- Music visualization support via MP's bass engine. Use lots of free Sonique visualizations with MediaPortal!

- The new lightning fast music tagreader supporting many more filetypes and tag fields.

- A radio stream plugin allowing to listen to your personal radio, love, ban or even skip tracks! (Audioscrobbler plugin needed)

- BASS supports Steinberg VST and Winamp plugins (experimental!)  

- More easily sort your TV channels like you're used to with music playlists

- The Sudoku game has a highscore mode now

- Many fixes to bring the MyBurner plugin up to date - including DVD support

- A Dreambox TV plugin including its EPG

- Clickfinder supports the new 5.2 release (pls set "usedatabasedate" to >yes<)

- Some Web-EPG grabbers have been added / improved

- New autocropper plugin based on live picture with subtitle support

- Ability to deactivate unnecessary zoom modes
