=== UPDATED CAMSTUDIO TO 2.7 ===

Camstudio v2.7, release 316:
------------------------------
* CamStudio not displaying/able to use all video codecs on system
(Partially done - some Microsoft WM codecs are still inaccessable but this is being worked on)

* Sometimes the CamStudio Lossless codec is not showing in codec list in Vista and Win7
(A new 64-bit compatible codec installer has been created to remove incorrectly
installed codecs and reinstall it)

* Keyboard shortcut option for Autopan with on-screen notification

* CamStudio will now inform you when a new update is available

* We've altered the default save location from 'Use Windows Temporary Directory'
to a Videos folder in 'Use Application Installed Diretory' so it's easier to find

* Removed link to CamStudio Blog from Help menu

* Made Auto Adjust enabled by default with a new second checkbox (also enabled by default)
above the slider bar locking the Capture Frame rate and Playback rate to only factors of
1000. Added a warning dialog when "Locking" checkbox deselected.

Leaving the "Lock" checkbox on will help to stop common audio/video desync issues

* Added a warning to Video Options > Capture rate mentioning CPU-load and final filesize
increase when using a higher capture rate figure

* Also made Key Frame rate independant of Auto Adjust for finer control.

* Changed first-run Video Options defaults to:

Keyframes every: 100 frames
Capture Every: 50 millseconds
Playback: 20 frames per second


Camstudio v2.6, release 294:
------------------------------
Huge step in release number sequence. Caused because many new nice features can be expected soon.
Nice things like zooming, showing key combinations pressed and/or left,middle and right mouse identification on screen.
This release contains only a few small fixes.
* Region 'Window' and'Select Screen' in case of multiple screens now calculate the pixels correct either.
* Temporally and final files are now created in the directory you have specified in "Directory for recording"
* Log file ....xnote.txt is renamed to ....txt and shows now besides xnote information also the version and release number of the executable.
* Inside the code 'Playerplus.exe' is now invoked instead of 'Playplus.exe'. So it will startup.
(My personal opinion; Don't use it at all. On can better use player.exe or use local player.)


Camstudio v2.6, release 272/273:
------------------------------
Fixed a memoryleak that caused that made Camstudio crashed after 40-50 minutes of recording.
Redesigned the region calculation routines.
* The same procedure is now applicable for all sizing calculations.
* The area you define in regions is the area that will be recorded. No shift in position or losing rows or columns.
* Size of the region is now displayed correctly in the progress monitoring window.
* Size of the recording is now equal to the size as displayed the progress monitoring window.
Camstudio v2.6, release 270:
------------------------------
Fixed how Camstudio treated 'TimeDelayInMilliSecs'. An postive value now ,means that time is added instead of subtracted.
Camstudio v2.6, release 269:
------------------------------
Add manifest files to prevent Microsoft 'Side by side' errors during first usage.
Mostly this can be solved with installing the"MIcrosoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistriutable package for 32 bits"
Reports showed that not all issies are solved.
(To be continued.)


Camstudio v2.6, release 264:
------------------------------
Last release of Xnote (dd July 2010) is ok.
Applied some extra checks to minimize the effects of Xnote in regular CamStudio windows.
Add functionality that demand that Xnote should enabled first.
If Xnote not enabled the user nearly sees anything of Xnote. (regular Camstudio version)
In the Camstudio4Xnote all relevant Xnote settings are showed to the user.
Changed about box on request of Mick. There is now a link to the Camstudie4Xnote website.


Camstudio v2.6, release 260:
------------------------------
Camstudio4Xnote now writes snaps to a XML formatted logfile.(tagged .xnote.txt)
Frame refs related with the Xnote snap will be added soon.

BTW.
The current release of Xnote on www.xnotestopwatch.com is still updated for Camstudio4Xnote but it does not send the Reset message. (I assume that this will be solved as soon as Dmitry returns from holliday). If all works but Camstudio4Xnote does not finalize recording when you use Xnote reset you must use xnsw_1.6.plus-(Camstudio special-05jun20100).exe.
Install XnoteStopwatch and copy xnsw_1.6.plus-(Camstudio special-05jun20100).exe to the XnoteStopwatch directory.Start xnsw_1.6.plus-(Camstudio special-05jun20100).exe instead of xnsw.exe.


Camstudio v2.6, release 258:
------------------------------
Camstudio4Xnoteis prepared to work together with an image motion detector which will start recording if Camstudio is in pause mode.
Camstudio4Xnoteis now prepared to recognize how recording is started and if this is done manual or automated with a start or finish device, a reporting camera or by hand.


Camstudio v2.6, release 255:
------------------------------
Xnote Camstudio settings are now pushed and pulled to Camstudio.ini file.
Each recording start with an unique named filename that gets a tag that identify when recording is started. Same ccyymmdd-hhmm-ss tag is used to brand the final file if autonaming is applicable.
Changed informational interface when recording. You can see now to which file is used for recording and it also shows info if limited recording is applicable or not.
Use the snaptime send by Xnote now also in Camstudio4Xnote.


Camstudio v2.6, release 253:
------------------------------
Add function that will manage if and how long recording will continue if this recording is activated by a Xnote stopwatch event. Changed Effects options dialog to be able to manage the duration of the recording if recording is triggered by means of xnote stopwatch.
Extended menubar with an option to switch recording duration limit on/off during recording. (But if set as options effect this overwite function is only applicable for the recording initiated by the last xnote message. Hence any new event will reset recording duration to inititial settings)
Use Xnote param now to set xnote timestamps. (before Camstudio used the timestamp when the xnote message was coming through)
Changed procedure that drops annotation in the screen capture.
Removed a few warnings as well.


Camstudio v2.6, release 250:
------------------------------
Camstudio will show snap times and running time if Xnote timestamp annotation is applicable.

BTW.
Current delaytime can be changed by the user.
With this release we have a small problem with storage of defined Xnote-Timestamp settings.
You can change settings but although saved we have a problem reloaded previously setting.


Camstudio v2.6, release 248:
------------------------------
Add Xnote time stamp option to effects.
This option adds a delayed stopwatch in the capture.
Recordings will shows a stopwatch annotation (in milli seconds). To get displayed stopwatchtime in sync with the image from the camera user can define number of milli seconds that camera is behind real events.
Although captured time for events as reported by Xnote stopwatch is accurate a small shift due to inaccuracy in estimated delay is always applicable.
For average user this will be not an mayor issue.

Camstudio recording can be set on pause. If Xnote snap event occurs recording will continue automatically.
