What's New?

Release notes with accompanying screenshots are available at: Changes follow:

- New interactive Synchronize Timings dialog:
  * Allows to synchronize using multiple sync points
  * Each sync point represents the correct time of a subtitle
  * Shows help message to ease the synchronization task
  * Can synchronize all subtitles based on a set of sync points
- New Seek To dialog that allows to seek the video to a specified time/frame
- More polished user interface, by removing the border relief in video-related
  buttons and decreasing their size
- Allow to close a file without quitting the application (File Close)
- Replace All now replaces translations too, besides the normal subtitle text
- Don't change the timing mode, after saving a file, to reflect the timing mode
  of the subtitle format chosen for saving
- Added Insert and Delete Subtitles toolbar buttons, removed Find and Replace
  from the toolbar
- Added MIME Type association to the SubRip, MPSub, SubStation Alpha and
  MicroDVD subtitle formats
- Improved handling of text formatting tags in SubRip files
- Show Matroska Video files (MKV) when listing video files
- Fixed crash on opening a translation file with no subtitles loaded
- SubLib merged into Gnome Subtitles, making both easier to maintain and package
- Major refactoring of the video playback engine:
  * GStreamer Playbin (code from the FuseMC project) has been incorporated into
    the project source tree
  * Gstreamer Playbin no longer builds as a separate package (no separate dll,
    although the .so lib is still built separately)
  * GStreamer events are now received asynchronously, which means the user
    interface adapts to the video in an asynchronous/non-blocking way
- Fixed some bugs in the video playback engine:
  * Loading a file when the previously loaded file wasn't played
  * Video position not being correctly updated after loading the video and
    before starting playback
- Display an error dialog when the help contents cannot be opened
- Fixed the use of Bug Buddy for bug reporting
- Changes in the project dependencies:
  * Requires gtk, gtk-sharp, glade-sharp and gconf-sharp 2.12 or higher
  * No longer requires gnome-sharp nor sublib
