Changes for v0.4.1 - v0.4.2

  • I found a couple of things that needed to be fixed and decided to release a new version; Kantaris 0.4.2

Changes for v0.4.0 - v0.4.1

  • The focus has for the most part been on developing new features and less time has been spent on fixing bugs and cleaning up the code. This has led to that bugs have been piling up so now I thought it was time to really focus on the user experience and I hope you like the result. I could list all the fixes but it’s easier to just say that most if not all problems I’m aware of should be fixed. (knock on wood)
  • This release also contains the following new translations:
  • Vietnamese by Mai Tien
  • Finnish by Jani Malinen
  • Italian by both Antonio Sardei and Giuliano Brasson
  • Polish by Kamil Kaczy?ski
  • Turkish by Dogucan
  • French by Wilomaz

Changes for v0.3.7 - v0.4.0

  • This release is mostly a bug fix release so no real new features but a few have been polished a bit. I’ve also made a zip package for those that don’t want to use the installer. The package is completely portable and can be run from an USB memory stick or similar. Also Kantaris has now been translated to several new languages and I would like to thank everyone that has contributed. Thanks to:
  • Siarhei Kuchuk for the Russian translation
  • Maurício Meneghini Fauth for the Brazilian Portuguese translation
  • Martin Basgier for the German translation
  • Tony Yu for the Simplified and Traditional Chinese translation
  • Joco1114 for the Hungarian translation
  • AD Lucans for the Spanish translation
  • Muhammad Nour for the Arabic translation

  • This release fixes a bug causing the “video output module” setting not be saved. If you don’t need to change this setting you also don’t need to update to version 0.3.7.

Changes for v0.3.5 - v0.3.6

  • Added subtitles size setting
  • Speed up file loading
  • Saving downloaded subtitles in the “kantaris\cache” directory instead of in the “temporary internet files” folder
  • Double-clicking for full screen works again
  • Hopefully fixed a bug caused by bass_fx.dll in Vista 64-bit ( I can’t test it)
  • Fixed a bug with the listing of embedded subtitles
  • Uninstaller now removes file associations
  • Probably some more which I can’t remember right now.

Changes for v0.3.4 - v0.3.5

  • Playback of all audio-CDs should now finally work.
  • Seeking in MPEG-2 files fixed.
  • Much better RAR support. Can now play most rar-archives containing video instantly without any unpacking and being able to seek in the file like it’s unpacked. I think this is a unique feature that no other player for windows has. I know that XBMC for Xbox can do the same.
  • Automatically identifying a movie and listing subtitles for it available at also automatically downloads the subtitle of choice. This might also be a unique feature.
  • A few other bug-fixes.
