Release Notes

While AnotherPhil's been busy with filters section, tidying and improving, I've had the chance to get tag function working in MC. (find this with Movie sets)
Please have a go and give us feedback on the discussion tab of our site.

HueyHQ's added mediainfo icons to overlay on the fanart image for Movies.

It is also now possible to add specific folders for exclusion of scanning for media.

A new options been added to General Preferences to only display local actor images. It was found that if an actor's image was missing, MC would attempt to locate an image from the internet, which caused a mild pause of up to 15 seconds between switching movies. This option is enabled by default to ensure MC stays speedy for all.

With that in mind, a new General Filter option for Missing actor images is available.

Lastly, XBMC's TMDB scraper has been brought inline with saving of movie Posters and fanart. Now saves as per your selected preferences in Movie Preferences.


* Movie filters - General - Drop-down list sizes to largest item
* Movie filters - Drop-down combo-boxes now use application's font and shows over task bar.
