Labrys v1.0.6 released

This is a mostly a bugfix release. The only new thing is an item to open Windows settings added into default jumplist. If handling of modern apps is disabled or if Labrys is running on Windows 7 then this item opens Control Panel. Notable fixes are:

  • Scrolling with mouse wheel not respecting windows settings and always scrolling by one line.
  • Launched apps aren't getting into foreground sometimes.
  • Flickering when resizing Settings dialog (also it's maximum width was increased).

Baka Encoder v1.5.1 released

It's been a while since last update, but I have finally found time to finish new version. Besides updated tools it features Hungarian translation (thanks to K.G.Y.), proper diagnostic messages for configuration files, compatibility fixes allowing it to work on ReFS volumes and on volumes where writing to the root is prohibited as well as various minor bug fixes.

Configuration file format has been changed a bit, pass_count XML attribute was renamed to passes_count, resize_method XML attribute was renamed to resizing_method. Backwards compatibility is preserved, so existing configurations should work as expected.

Labrys v1.0.5 released

This version adds file path completion with Ctrl + Space combination when typing in Command textbox. It was actually implemented from the very beginning. But I've accidentally disabled it in previous public releases and forgot to mention it in the help file. I've noticed this only after one of the users asked me about adding such a feature.

Another improvement would be compatibility with recent jumplist format changes in Windows 10.
