--- What's new in Zoom Player v9.5.0:

  * The main fullscreen navigation interface index is now drawn
    using an icon grid array instead of a list, making it much more
    touch/mouse friendly.

  * There is now a dedicated close button for all fullscreen navigation
    interfaces, making them more suitable for usage with touch devices.

  * New text-file viewer, opening any of the following text extensions
    uses the new viewer: csv, css, ini, json, log, nfo, txt, xml, yaml.
   
    Files with the 'nfo' extension will open using the Terminal font
    at a fixed size of "9" to preserve the ASCII art.

    While the text-file viewer is in use, the UP/DOWN navigation keys
    and the mouse scroll wheel are used to scroll through the file
    instead of their usually assigned function.

  * You can now rename files directly from the playlist fullscreen
    navigation interface's function menu.

  * The GoTo time fullscreen navigation interface is now more usable
    with a mouse or touch input :
    
    1. You can now click to select the Hour/Minute/Seconds fields.
    2. Clicking the current position pastes the current position
       to the Hour/Minute/Seconds entry fields
    3. The arrow controls are larger and more accessible.

  * A clickable "Trash" icon is now displayed next to the erase entry
    on fullscreen navigation interfaces' function menu.

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
    Customization) to override a skin's icon grid array viewing mode
    for the main fullscreen navigation interface index.

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Interface" that overrides the mouse
    scroll wheel and UP/DOWN navigation keys functions when the HTML
    or Text file viewers are in use. Instead of the assigned functions
    the mouse wheel and UP/DOWN keys are used to scroll through the
    HTML/Text content.

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Playback / Video / Subtitles" that
    determines whether the XySubFilter high resolution subtitle renderer
    is used (MadVR set as the video renderer is also a requirement
    for XySubFilter to work).

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
    Settings" that determines if text files are listed in the media
    library and file browsing fullscreen navigation interfaces.

    This setting can also be accessed through the media library and
    file browsing fullscreen navigation interfaces' function menu.

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
    Customization" specifying that the selected custom background
    image should be treated as a pattern and tiled instead of stretched.

  * New setting "Adv. Options / Playback" that determines whether text
    files are added to the playlist when opening an entire drive or folder.

  * You can now select "Text & HTML" from the open dialog's drop-down
    format list.

  * New control bar buttons that opens the 'Main' and 'Media Library'
    fullscreen navigation interface.

  * New button on the Install Center's options dialog to open the
    cache folder in explorer.

  * You can now click an arrow icon on the media library, file browsing
    and playlist fullscreen navigation interfaces' quick search function
    to reach the selected entry with one click.

  * New skin-script code to better position the 'GoTo Time' fullscreen
    navigation interface's "current" and "seek-to" position texts.

  * New Smart Play profile for opening local ".NSV" media files.
    Improved NSV streaming should appear in a future version.

  + The default configuration has been improved to better account for new
    and updated features.

  + The 'Navigation Scrollbar Size' setting can now be set to
    "Dynamic Mode" which changes the scrollbar's size dynamically
    based on the interface's width, restoring the previous default
    scrollbar behavior.

  + "Dynamic mode" is the new default 'Navigation Scrollbar Size',
    restoring the scrollbar size to v9.3 values.

  + When the HTML viewer is in use, the UP/DOWN navigation keys and
    the mouse scroll wheel are now used to scroll through the web page
    instead of their usually assigned function.

  + The icon next to the 'Play all files in this Directory' and
    'Randomly Play all files in this Directory' has been changed from
    a checkbox to a play icon.

  + The notification about bad sub-types in a smart play profile will
    no longer appear by default. These messages will now only appear
    if the 'Show Smart Play graph creation errors' setting is enabled.

  + The default panning rate when using an XInput (XBOX 360/ONE)
    controller has been slowed a bit.

  + A few of the fullscreen navigation icons were tweaked for clarity
    and enhanced visuals.

  + Some of the icons on the bundled Customizable Background fullscreen
    navigation skin have been made semi-translucent in sections to better
    integrate with the background image.

  + The GoTo time fullscreen navigation dialog now always opens on the
    "Seconds" field (previously it would on the "Hours" field).

  + Improved keyboard time to seek input when using the GoTo time
    fullscreen navigation interface.  

  + Added more space between some buttons in fullscreen navigation
    interfaces (Equalizer, Image Adjust, Color Control, Image Blanking).

  + The Image Adjust fullscreen navigation interface layout has been
    optimized for additional clarity.

  + The Mouse wheel function fullscreen navigation interface has been
    optimized for additional clarity and enhanced touch input.

  - Disabled the "Press & Hold" windows touch-input feature on the
    fullscreen navigation interfaces. The "Press & Hold" feature
    adds a delayed response to touch events, which interfered with
    smooth operation on tablet devices.

  - Enabling a file tracker feature while the download manager
    fullscreen navigation interface was already visible could
    cause a crash.

  - Trying to play streaming audio without the DC-Bass component
    installed would trigger a crash.

  - Trying to play a station listed under the favorites section
    would trigger a crash.

  - Adding a station to the favorite station list would not save
    the new favorite item after restarting the player.

  - Long Path text in the media library and file browsing fullscreen
    interfaces would cause the text to overlay the selected item count
    and icon.  

  - Renaming a file in the media library or file browsing fullscreen
    navigation interfaces would cause the some of the playlist navigation
    interface icons to appear in the wrong size.

  - Renaming a file using one of the fullscreen navigation interfaces
    would not rename the playlist entry for that file.

  - Clicking in an empty space under or above a file entry's icon in
    the playlist, media library and file browsing fullscreen navigation
    interfaces no longer selects the last entry in the list.

  - Clicking in an empty space under or above an entry in all
    fullscreen navigation interface would wrongly interpret the
    click as if it was on the first or last entry in the list,
    leading to accidental actions.

  - Switching to fullscreen with the Zoom Player window in a maximized
    state would lose the window's maximized state upon exiting fullscreen
    mode.

  - Hovering with the mouse cursor over a timeline area containing
    a chapter/bookmark would cause the hint window containing the
    bookmark name and position to flicker if the hint window would
    appear on the edge of the active screen.

  - Setting the mouse's middle-click (mouse wheel click) to reset
    DirectShow Zooming, instead of resetting, the maximum zoom
    value was applied.

  - Opening a folder through several means (drag & drop for example)
    would not always respect the "Opening a drive or directory includes
    opening image files" setting.

  - Rotating the screen/tablet now hides the date & time display from
    the navigation interfaces (previously they would overlap due to
    the lack of space).

  - Category names would overlap the right-side icons in the fullscreen
    media library navigation interface.

  - Clicking the left/right edges of a fullscreen navigation interface
    to navigate left/right now works again.
