Fixed: Possible crash when doing DSD encoding. Changed: Added 24 bit LPCM file handling. Lack of it was preventing DLNA rendering of this file type. Changed: Updated Chinese language files. Fixed: Text phrases in “Slow Motion Playback” context menu were not translatable. Changed: Updated FLAC encoder and decoder to FLAC 1.3.1. Fixed: Searching in WebGizmo for something with only one result would yield no results.
