Updated all Vapoursynth variable names for existing filters that have been changed or removed since 1.7.

Tweaked the Job Loading function, When a previous job is loaded into StaxRip the form will now automatically close.

Added Support for Remaining HDR10 colorspace Metadata, To make it full compatible with HDR10 Standards(MKV Only). The function can be enabled in the option section under Image -> Extras. It can also be done Manually The tool can be accessed by Apps -> MediaInfo -> MKVHDR

Altered VUI import system to match MediaInfo changes. For HDR10 it must match BT.2020 Colorspace. It will now also enable the additional flags in VUI and Bitstream to encode to HDR10. GOP & VBV Settings will have to be set manually.

Removed the Character Limit on the Temp Folders. It will not longer create the '...' after it hits 30 characters Which was designed for Windows 260 limit(Mainly for older Windows). If you need more then 260 characters you can alter the GroupPolicy Settings which will allow your to bypass the limit.

Added MKVinfo App to menu to check colorspace coordinates (Which Mediainfo no longer displays), This is useful for HDR content to make sure metadate has the correct HDR metadata.

MediaFolder Folder Option has been Disabled(It was no longer Working correctly due to latest update to Mediainfo) and has been replaced with the internal MediaInfo GUI that allows you to open any media file, If it's loaded in StaxRip or not.

* Automatic aspect ratio signaling added for DivX, that mean it's supported for all codecs now
* DivX is the only application I don't host myself. StaxRip links to the download provided at divx.com. The reason is it's 15 MB big. Unfortunately there are silent updates very often. While silent updates usually work with StaxRip, the version detection complains. I've added a special handling for DivX now to handle this issue. StaxRip don't require the exact but a minimum version now for DivX

* The filter editor in the main dialog shows a script editor on double-click instead of enable/disable the filter. The filter dialog shows the script editor with a left-click while pressing Ctrl
* Improved support running StaxRip with limited user privilegs which is the normal case under Vista


1.0.0.2 (2008-01-06)

* StaxRip is now distributed with a installer checking if .NET framework 3.5 is installed. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to make the auto updater of the old version beware of setup versions so the first setup version has to be downloaded manually
* The following external applications were updated: NeroAACEnc, DGMPEGDEC, DivX, MP4Box, XviD, x264, VirtualDub, MKVtoolnix. Furthermore more applications are hosted by myself since my webspace now has unlimited traffic

* Updated to another silent DivX update
* Updated to x264 rev 654
* Since the local and roaming application data directories has better names under Vista the setup has now options for both
* Minor improvements regarding setup and error handling


0.9.9.9 (2007-03-31)

* Command Line was broke due to a command handling bug
* Another command handling bug causing StaxRip to crash if a menu was reused instead of reseted while updated from an old StaxRip version

* New command 'Perform/Delete Files', new event 'Application Exit', new macros %install_dir% and %download_dir%. With all that a event command could be created to delete all zip files from the download directory on application exit as keeping them is usually pointless. The command can also be used to delete temp files after encoding
* Updated to another silent DivX update
* Fixed bug with the pause feature which pauses external processes
* Fixed bug causing non film material to be detected as film

Some commands where renamed and some are new. This means command line parameters have changed so please check your command lines
* More tooltips, new option to disable tooltips, if disabled a right-click still shows a tooltip, more controls support now tooltip with right-click
* 'What's this help' (the quotation mark title bar button/quotation mark mouse pointer to show context help/tooltips) got dumped. This button shows now the help document of the dialog. Almost all new Microsoft applications do this now, StaxRip has right-click tooltips (even for main/context menus, toolbars and most other controls) and now also popup tooltips (can be disabled in the settings).
* Gradient colors are now system color bases, that means theme colors.
* All dialogs respond to the 'Escape' key for closing the dialog and F1 for showing the help (all dialogs are derived from the same base dialog now)
* The features in the dialog to open source files should now be more transparent and better documented and most importantly it has a new feature 'Directory Batch' which processes multiple directories where every directory is processed as seperate source

* The button to open a source in the main dialog shows the 'Source Files' dialog directly instead of displaying a context menu. To show the file browser directly the text box can be double clicked, the file browser shown here supports multiselect, multible files will be alphabetically ordered. Hovering the mouse over text boxes in the main dialog shows a hint that the text box can be double clicked
* Check for updates can be performed manually ('Help/Check For Updates')
* Lanczos4Resize added to the filter profiles as 'Very Sharp'
* Saving a template profile from now on flags the active project as saved so StaxRip won't any longer bother asking to save
* The title bar shows now always the name of the template used

0.9.9.4 (2007-01-14)
Fix: CLI (command line interface) was broke due to a feature introduced by version 0.9.9.3
Fix: DivX certification profile with no restriction combined with 1 pass quality based encoding was broke
x264 --threads auto added as default, because of this StaxRip will offer but not force to reset all video codec related settings.
Update: DivX 6.4.0.51
Update: AviSynth 2.5.7
Update: VirtualDub 1.6.17


0.9.9.3 (2007-01-07)

Fix: The delay wasn't detected for muxing profiles and thus wasn't detected for AC3
Fix: FluxSmooth wasn't detected as requirement
Automatic internet updates are now fully supported. When StaxRip starts it checks the internet if there is a new StaxRip version available. If a new version is available it downloads and installs it automatically after a user confirmation.
New setup wizard with Vista like command buttons so the user don't have to bother with a next button and got the tooltip right on the button.
New DGIndex feature to use relative file paths is now supported in that all AviSynth scripts are written to the source directory
External Applications get the message that informs about wrong versions back enabled after downloading
Anamorphic encoding: In case no auto resize is performed the resize value get adjusted to the image size actually used
Crop dialog: Opening the crop dialog now disables the crop reminder assistant tip so the tip is skipped automatically and doesn't have to be clicked away with 'next' manually
AAC uses now the new encoder by Nero
x264 and AAC are now the default codecs
x264: The 'Quality' value (--crf) of the profile 'Constant Quality' was changed from 20 to 22
Jobs: Starting encoding has now to be started with the job dialog. Pressing 'Next' creates a job and opens the job dialog so the only thing left to do is pressing 'Start' in the job dialog

0.9.9.2 (2006-05-01)
The x264 dialog has been reorganized.
The x264 switch '--bime' was added as 'B-Frames/Bidirectional ME'.
The x264 switch '--no-fast-pskip' was added as 'Analysis/No Fast P Skip'.
The x264 switch '--direct' was added as 'B-Frames/Direct Mode'.
Updated x264 to revision 516 using sharktooth's build.
DivX was updated to version 6.2.2.
Opening a audio source file that has a filename containing the language will cause StaxRip to pick up the language from the filename so it's no longer necessary to set the language manually.
Opening a source file while another source file is already open will show a dialog to select a template from. Previously just a warn message appeared asking to load a template first.
The options dialog has several new options allowing to disable certain assistant instructions. For now the following reminders can be disabled: crop, filters, cut and comp. check.
When StaxRip shows a dialog for the very first time it will automatically show the help of the dialog. It's now possible to disable this behavior in the settings.
For HDTV the image size is ofter larger then the monitor screen size, in that case StaxRip shows the crop dialog maximized fitting exactly the monintor size.
The command 'Perform/Clear Jobs' was added allowing to clear the job list.
The command 'Correct/ImageSize' was added. It changes the image size to the cropped image size in case no resize filter is used. This command is always performed after the crop dialog closes.
The command 'Correct/Crop Mod' was added. It crops until crop width and height is a multiple of 4 or in case no resize filter is used 16. This command is always performed after the crop dialog closes.
The command 'Perform/Add Job' was added allowing to add a job to the job list.
The command 'Perform/Run Jobs' was added allowing to start encoding the jobs.
The quality percent value that is used in conjunction with the compressibility check defaults now to 60% for XviD and DivX and 50% for x264. StaxRip will offer to reset all video encoder settings.
StaxRip no longer uses a default project but allows to specify which template to load at startup.
The main window supports now tooltips showed with a right-click or by using the 'What's this?' menu item (command: 'Help/What's This?'). StaxRip will offer to reset the main menu to make this menu item show up.
The automatic correction of crop values uses now two sides.
The crop dialog shows now mod values and labels in the status bar.
The menu editor uses now a menu instead of a drop down to select a command. The advantage of a menu is a hierarchical presentation and tooltip context help.
Added project option 'Advanced/Dangerous/Save Cropping' to disable forcing save mod values for cropping.
Updated the guides regarding multipass vs quality mode.
The size menu in the main window has new default values allowing to set the size/bitrate based on a quality of 40/50/60/70/80% which can be useful for codecs with multipass better tuned then quality mode. StaxRip will offer to reset this setting.
The audio settings for the PlayStation Portable were improved. StaxRip will offer to reset audio related settings.
The profile menus support now a tree structure based on slash signs ('/') in the profile name. StaxRip forces to reset audio and video encoder profiles to have new profile names.
The open files dialog supports now Drag & Drop to add files.
Open the target directory after the encoding was removed because windows explorer might crash for unknown reasons.
The dialog for opening source files has various new options for batch processing.
The PayPal donation link was broke due to changes from PayPal.
The 'More Guides' help document was updated with a italian guide.
