I also had to do a major code rewrite, because the command-line utility and the GUI were using different sets of classes. So the program may behave the same, but inside it has changed a lot.

Version 0.4
- No need to select framerate anymore. Just select PAL or NTSC and all
the framerate conversions will be done automatically when needed,
using the best quality way possible. For NTSC: 29.97 and 23.976 are
kept this way and 25 is slowed down to 23.976. For PAL: 23.976 is
speeded up to 25 fps, 25 fps is kept this way, and 29.97 is converted to 25 fps using Avisynth function convertfps. I am not sure this is the best way to do this kind of conversion, so if anyone knows a better way, let me know.
- 29.97 to 25 fps conversion now supported (as shown above)
- ?smaller? configuration dialog.
- Removed ?MaestroSBT? tab from configuration dialog. This tab was inactive since the first GUI release.
- Configuration Dialog was a mess, I re-organized.
- Best Resolution Finder: DIKO can now find the best resolution to encode the movie(s) with a Q Factor lower than 40. You just choose the
resolutions your player support (or the DVD-Compí¬ˇnt resolutions, to
play safe), check the ?Best Resolution Finder? and that?s it!
- Crop to full screen ? I don?t really like doing this (read to understand why), but some people do? So here
it goes!
- Shutdown when finished processing on Windows NT/2000/XP
- Bugs in script template fixed (pointed by rezaparnian)

Version 0.34
- Besweet Audio pitch issues should be fixed. Now toolame.exe is no
longer needed: DIKO is using besweet?s toolame.dll to output straight to mp2. I tested with 25->23.976 conversions and seems to be fine,
23.976-> 25 should be working.
- 480x480(576), 528x480(576) and 544x480 (576) are now available.
- 29.976 changed to 29.970
- Now using official dvdauthor/spumux win32 compile. My compile was
giving stackdumps sometimes.

Version 0.33
- Fixed Subs for SVCD. Vsfilter.dll from vobsub included in filters folder for
this purpose.
- Checks and remove slash in the end of workingdir, that makes ECLCCE
- Allows using DirectShowSource instead of AVISource
- Prediction now processes one movie at a time in CCE. This allows
prediction for many movies without errors (I hope)
- SVCD subs selection box wasn?t working properly. Fixed.

Version 0.32
- Stupid framerate bug fixed. Used ?=? instead of ?==? in a IF statement

Version 0.31
- Configuration Dialog bugs fixed.
- DIKO no longer halts on invalid framerate conversion, only warns.
- Previous ac3 encoded files are removed prior to SoftEncode execution,
since looks like it doesn?t overwrite files.
- Readme now features additional instructions for KSVCD
- About dialog updated
- New script should be more accurate, provide more compressibility and
work faster

Version 0.3
- FAQ updated
- KSVCD support, including SVCD/CVD selectable subtitles
- MP2 audio support using toolame
- Downmix 5.1 to 2.0 support
- DIKO now checks and halts on invalid framerate (valids are
23.976,25,29.97) or invalid framerate conversion (you can only convert
from 23.976 to 25 and vice-versa)
- Fatal Error messages now appear in a Message Box
- Authoring without menu should be working now? If I don?t mess things
up again? ?
- Prediction now should not fall in infinite loops any more.
- Frame_rate_idx in CCE template was being set according to the source,not the destination. Fixed.
- SoftEncode ini file now uses -20 dB dialog normalization, it?s not the ideal situation but looks like for most files this value is around -20.
- Many fixes in Dutch translation by Bonarez.
- German Translation by Incredible. DIKO is now available in 6 languages!

Version 0.21
- Authoring without menu (very useful for importing subs in DVD-Lab)
wasn?t working properly. Fixed.
- The Default script does not feature GripFit anymore, since it causes
?caught an access violation? Avisynth errors sometimes. A basic resizing is used now, and will be optimized.
- Added one more variation of the SoftEncode correction, and fixed the
- DIKO issues a message in the end of processing so it doesn?t look like it crashed.
- Crash Recovery Support ? More info below
- Translation Support: Portuguese, English, Spanish (by Kwag), French
(by DialHot) and Dutch (by Bonarez)! More translations on the way.
Please contact me if you would like to translate DIKO to your language.
- ?OK? in Add Movies Dialog changed to ?Add? to be more clear.

Version 0.2
? Now Featuring a GUI. DIKO is no longer a command-line application! But the GUI is alpha as usual, so be aware.
? Deleting of SoftEncode Keys now can enabled and disabled using the
configuration menu.
? PAL Bug in CCE has been fixed.

Version 0.12
? Sampler.dll and mpeg2dec3.dll were missing from the plugins folder,
now they have been added
? No need to specify the n_of_movies in [Main] anymore. This setting is now ignored.
? No need to copy Avisynth Plugins anymore. Generated scripts now carry a LoadPlugin for each plugin in Avisynth Plugins folder.
? Automatically add an ?addborders? line in script to prevent the mod16 issue when it?s needed (height or width not divisible by 16)
? Generated avs now includes the Full Path
? FPS conversion wasn?t working for subtitles. Fixed.
? Now it can fully work in background thanks to SPUMux (from dvdauthor
0.6.9 package) new subtitle rendering function. No need for MaestroSBT
? Using SPUMux also fixes the ignored subs problem (some subs were
being dropped)
? Added the parameter qfactoradjust, that avoids the undersize problem
in CCE when using the default script.
? Author option in [Main] changed.
? Added a FAQ to this readme with most commom questions.
