program guide, instant recording, and much more.
Final GUI optimizations and several fixes were made. A count-down timer and timer OSD has been added. The playlist will be cleared when a URL is dropped into the video window or passed by command line (Konqueror|Open With...). It's now possible to shut off the monitor and/or quit after playback. When a subtitle file is opened or dropped, a dialog box asks for the movie it belongs to. Garbage characters in titles have been fixed, as well as a crash after changing the audio driver and (un)muting arts-driver.
