    This is a development build based upon the the "Summer'15 Release Update 1".

    Main changes compared to Summer'15 Update 1 Release are (grey points where available in previous development snapshots already):
    • Skin engine:
      • Switched texture loading back to GDI (with fallback to FreeImage) to improve decoding performance
      • Added new feature to specify Texture alignment in images sources
      • Extended IScreenControl to allow temporary disabling "TopMost" behavior of MP2 main form (used for OnlineVideos)
      • Try to fix NullReferenceException in font handling in seldom cases
      • Fixed logging of shader load errors
    • Fanart-Service
      • Made FanartService more flexible for extensions (used for Emulators plugin, thanks @Brownard)
    • Media Library:
      • Extended SeriesMetadataExtractor to support user defined regular expressions and pre- and post-match text replacements (to clean up filenames)
      • Fixed possible NRE in MKV tag handling
      • New filter for audio "Album Artist" (thanks to external patch by xMarkos)
      • Major improvements to audio and image playback: now we use automatical created playlist to play all items from current view
      • Major improvements to Image Player: player starts in "still" mode, allows skipping forward/backward through images. "Play" starts the known slide show.
      • Extended support for IMDB-id detection of non-xml .nfo files
      • Extended online lookup support at TheMovieDb by using tmdb ids
      • Fixed potential crash for imports of UNC locations when checking for IsVirtualSource (thanks @disaster123 for reporting)
      • Improved memory caching logic to avoid "out of memory" for large imports (thanks @MJGraf)
    • New plugin:
      • Added UPnP renderer plugin (thanks @FreakyJ)
    • Installer:
      • Fixed detection of x86 VC redistributables on x64 systems.
      • Removed license link from initial dialog
    • MCE remote support:

      • Fixed duplicated "next" / "previous" key handling
      • Reduced logging to log unmapped keys only once
    • Updates and fixes for SlimTV / TVE 3:
      • Internal changes to use ILocalFsResourceAccessor for files, while rtsp streams still use INetworkResourceAccessor
      • Extended recordings screen to show more details (channel, recording times), (thanks @disaster123, @ge2301!)
      • Changes to UPnP system (removed IP affiinity in some calls to improve device detection, sending UPnP "update configuration" after resume from standby to improve reconnection) (thanks @disaster123)
      • Fixed user priorities (solves conflicts with EPG grabber and tuning requests)
      • Improved schedules management: added scheduled programs list / series view
      • Fixed recording/canceling of programs of series schedules
      • Reworked group / channel / zap handling to use correct group and channel indexes
      • Added new feature to show episode information in TV guide and recording planning
      • Updated core to MP1.12 version
      • Disabled redundant TV Thumbnail creation (done by MP2)
      • Fixed endless loop in recording management if folder is missing
      • Fixed storing/reading of some settings due to case-sensitive DB storage. This works only for new created databases or requires manual changes in SQLite DB (see here).
    • Refresh Rate Changer:
      • Extended configuration options to allow custom refresh rate mappings (i.e. 25 fps -> 50 Hz, or 23 fps -> 24 Hz)
    • BlueVision skin:
      • More updates
      • Fixed help label overlapping
      • Fixed flickering of "currently playing" group button and changed the icon
      • More fine tuning in all themes
      • Using new ImageSourceWrapper for smooth transitions of fanart images (thanks @Brownard !)
      • Moved player controls into new "currently playing" screen (right button in top group menu), so they don't overlap footer contents
      • Added help texts for menu items to make features clearer to new users
      • New "Windows 10" theme
    • New window mode, toggle between them by "ALT-Enter":
      • "Windowed always on top" (also known as MiniTV mode in MP1)
      • Windowed (normal)
      • Fullscreen
    • Windows modes keep aspect ratio of Skin and position/size will be restored after restart
    • Fixed wrong MP2 window size after sleep/resume cycle due to resolution changes (see here)
    • Fixed Resource Server that could return wrong url in some cases (fixes loading of fanart / channel logos)
    • Changed streaming parameters for remote resource bridge (trying to fix interruption of media playback in multiseat)
    • Support for external subtitles by xy-VSfilter (auto loading version, thanks @henso)
    • OnlineVideos 2 plugin is now contained in the installer!
      • Added BrowserPlayer support for MP2, sites like Amazon Prime and Netflix should be working fine
