New in Version 1.30

Added Hungarian language support.

Added 3 new duration stamping modes (see Help for details):
Mark stamping: stamp will be on for a user-specified amount of time at every user specified mark.
Range stamping: stamp will be on starting from every user specified In-mark to the following Out-mark.
Stop-watch stamping: same as Range stamping, but time is reset at every In-mark. Could be used to time a sport event.

Added a predefined time format that is similar to time code burn format, except this one has no frame number.

New in Version 1.20

Added the feature of changing preview area size. The preview area size could be set to Native (720x480 for NTSC, 720x576 for PAL), 720x540 (4:3 aspect ratio), or 640x480 (4:3 aspect ratio).

New in Version 1.10

User interface enhancement: press and hold the left mouse button on any of these control buttons will repeat the button action: date/stamp movement buttons (<, >, ^, v), and preview control buttons (<<<, <<, <, >, >>, >>>).

Added the option of displaying safe area rectangles: safe area for TV viewing and safe area for stamps.

Added more predefined time formats: 2 formats that display the frame number in millisecond (hh:mm:ss.fff and h:mm:ss.fff), 1 format to display the time code burn (hh:mm:ss:ff, starting from 00:00:00:00 regardless of the time code of the DV AVI file).
