- We’ve had some challenges getting the Xbox version released because of some specific platform requirements needed for 4k/HEVC playback. With the help of @CelesAtXbox (thanks so much!), we think we’ve now genuinely got those covered to Microsoft’s satisfaction, and can finally get this into the Windows Store.
- There’s also an issue with an expired certificate for 18.9 on Xbox, which effectively takes that version off that platform for new installations, so the timing is opportune to fix that.
- There’s been a long-standing Atmos audio issue on all platforms that support TrueHD passthrough – we know that this has been irritating people for some time, and we’ve now been able to fix this.
- We unintentionally introduced a bug in 19.2 that broke Airplay, so we’ve fixed that one.
- A couple of gaming-related fixes, notably a controller fix and some shader issues on Retroplayer.
- We’ve fixed a bug that affected thumbnails for watched episodes when hiding episode spoilers.
- We’ve much improved the metadata shown in Linux app stores.
