Todays release includes a huge amount of change. GB-PVR's user interface was its weakest attribute, and the thing usually the thing identfied out by users and reviewers as 'lacking', often pushing users to seek out alternative applications. This version includes an entirely rewritten user interface, though based on most of the ideas of previous releases, so it still feels like the same app. This new interface will give the app a lot of room to grow in the future.
This new user interface comes as a new executable (PVRX2.exe), which should be treated as a public 'beta' of sorts. It's in pretty good shape, but there is bound to be bugs. The new user interface also doesnt contain all the features of the old application yet (missing fm radio, net radio, youtube and couple of other more minor things). I'll leave up to you guys to read the feedback and decide if you want to install this release.
Other than the new PVRX2.exe executable, the rest of the release is solid and is pretty much v0.99.12 plus a few minor bug fixes. For now, the release also includes the old GBPVR.exe user interface for those that need it (ie slow machines, stability problems, WAF, fear of the unknown etc), but this executable will no longer be maintained or actively supported in future.
The new user interface is Direct3D based, with much improved text rendering, a few simple animations etc. Unfortunately this comes at some cost... So, appologies to those with slow machines or using the PVR350 tv out - this is may be the end of the road for GB-PVR for you.
MVP users dont need to worry. The MVP is still supported, and the release also includes an entirely new MVP server.
