We from Team-MediaPortal wish everyone a safe and happy 2018!  To celebrate the new year we have just released a Pre Release of MediaPortal 1.19.0 . Happy testing! Pre Releases are provided as a way for the community to test and give feedback on all the exciting things we have lined up for the next release. We allocate about one month for Pre Release testing. In that time we will only fix bugs, after which comes the final release! Highlights of this release  Bugfixes: We fixed some issues with MadVR We fixed an issue where MP was not able to manage audio volume correctly We updated SQLite to version 3.21. This reduces CPU load and add bugfixes We fixed TSreader crashing with MPEG2 stream We fixed some issues on MediaPortal Configuration New: We added some skin functions We provide a libbluray library based on our own fork.and updated to 1.0.2 (read information below) Along with the above items we kept consolidating our software. Note: For use Bluray with BD-J support, Java 8 must be installed. We recommend the version Java 8u151 in x86 version. Download-Link : Oracle Download Website Full list of changes You can review the complete change log for MP 1.19.0 Pre Release by using the link below: Changelog: MediaPortal 1.19.0 Pre Release Documentation of new features can be found at the following link: What’s new for MediaPortal 1.19.0 Pre Release Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback Installation Since we switched to .NET4 you need to make sure you have.NET4 installed on your computer (not needed if you are on Windows 8 because it comes with .NET4, but you NEED the .NET 3.5 features enabled! ). Otherwise you are not able to install MediaPortal and the installer just quits. Download-Link:  Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) Aside from that when doing a clean installation of the 1.19.0 Pre Release there is nothing else to worry about. Upgrade Upgrading from MP 1.2.0 Beta or later to 1.19.0 Pre Release All MediaPortal 1.2.0 Beta installations can be upgraded to MP 1.19.0 Pre Release without losing your settings. Plugins: If you are running MediaPortal 1.6.0 or earlier, then it is possible that some of your previously installed plugins will be shown as incompatible after the upgrade to 1.19.0 Pre Release! Whether or not a plugin is incompatible depends on the MediaPortal subsystems the plugin uses. All plugins that work for the 1.7.1 HotFix release, should also work with the 1.19.0 Pre Release. Upgrading Extensions: The easiest way to upgrade your extensions is by launching the  MediaPortal Extension Installer , and let it check for updated versions. However this only works for extensions that use our MPEI system. If the author of the extension releases it as a stand alone installer, you must contact them for an updated version. General note about Upgrades Manually stop TV-Service! On some systems our installer is not able to update the TV-Server installation because its files are locked or the service can not be stopped. For upgrades to 1.19.0 Pre Release we recommend that you manually stop the TV-Service and make sure, via Windows Task Manager  (enable the “all users” option),  that the TvService.exe process is really gone before starting to upgrade. Custom TV-Service properties If you manually changed the properties of the TV-Service  (like restart on error options) , then you must redo these changes after the upgrade. The installer is not able to save and restore your custom service properties when it installs the new version of the TV-Service. Feedback Bugs If you think you found a bug then please post a detailed report in our Bug Reports Forum . Make sure your report includes  all the required information . Incomplete reports will be removed to keep the forum clean.  Download Finally – the download. We hope that you took the time to read this release news entirely because it includes vital information about the major changes.   If you would like to support MediaPortal, we would be happy to receive  a donation ! The Team wishes you a lot of fun with this new release! .::. Download – MediaPortal 1.19.0 Pre Release .::. :: Post a Comment ::
