          Changes since v2.53 up to v4.12
 

  • NEW:  A new optional file tagging system has been introduced.  This provides for information to be stored inside the actual audio, such as Artist, Title, Intro Times, Album, Year, etc, and a history of the last 18 scheduled dates/times.  The details are stored in an APEv2 standard file tag, regardless of whether the file is MP3, WAV, or any other format.  Other optional information may also be entered such as record label,  Client ID, CD Code, and ISRC code.  This information is now included in the Track Summary log file.  File tag information may be maintained by loading the Track Properties option in the File List or Playlist Editor, or Track Tool.  This feature may be enabled/disabled with the "Store data in file tags" option on the Advanced Options tab.  With this option enabled, the track information and history of scheduled times are available for viewing in the Playlist Editor and File List.  We recommend this option is enabled because previous scheduling information will not be lost if a file is moved to another folder.  This information is used for artist & song separation.  The Last Scheduled date tags will be updated after a playlist has been generated and Save executed.  The Save operation will now take a longer time since it is saving additional information to all audio files used in the playlist.  Note: Tag updates will not occur on read-only files, and no error will be generated.

  • NEW:  Foreign Tags such as ID3 tags in MP3 files, and RIFF header tags in WAV files, will now be read by AirList.  This data will be saved in our own APE tag system if the "Store data in tags" option is enabled.  MPEG-4 AAC (MP4, M4A) file tags, and WMA file tags are also supported.  When loading AirList 4.12 for the first time, the loading time will be much longer than usual as it reads all existing foreign tags and generates a new internal database structure.  The first Save will also take a longer time than usual as it writes the new tag structure to your audio files.

  • NEW:  Use file tags for Artist and Title is a new option on the Advanced Options tab.  When enabled, audio files do not require the artist and title to be present in the filename. Note: This option should be disabled if the tags in your audio files are not reliable enough to be used for Artist & Title recognition.  However, the Store data in file tags can still be enabled to store additional information. 

  • NEWThe Track Summary Log file has changed structure and now includes the following data, if available in file tags: Times used, Artist, Title, Album, Composer, Record Label, CD Code, and ISRC code. The Track Summary report available in the Playlist Editor includes all the above details except for the Composer and ISRC.  The report now prints in landscape orientation.

  • NEW:  The Spot Summary Log file has changed structure slightly to include the Client ID.  The Client ID may be entered in Spot Group Properties, or individually entered in the file tag using File Properties.  This ID may include a Client name or code to identify an advertiser.

  • NEW:  "Include in Spot Summary" is a new option in Spot Group Properties.  When disabled, no details for this spot will be saved to the Spot Summary log file.  This may be used to ignore jingles and station ID's, and include only advertisements, for example.

  • NEW:  The Playlist Editor and File List will now display additional information about a track when moving the mouse over the track icon to the left of the artist.  The information displayed, if available in the file tags, is the Year, Album, Comment, and the last 18 scheduled dates/times.  Break Note descriptions may also be viewed this way.

  • NEW:  Song Intro/Outro file matching does not now require the filenames to match.  If the Use file tags for Artist and Title option is enabled, matching is done via the Artist & Title tags stored within each file.  For Artist matching only, the Title tag must be blank in the intro/outro file.

  • NEW:  The Song Intro/Outro facility now works with Category names.  If no matching song or matching artist is found, the routine will use a file where the Artist is blank and the Title matches the Category name, or where the Title is blank and the Artist matches the Category name, if one exists.  Example intro: "Here's an oldies track from the 60's".

  • NEW:  Multiple Song Intro's and Outro's are now supported for each song, artist, and category.  Each matching Intro/Outro file will be selected in a rotating order, and is used to prevent the same introductions from becoming stale and over used.

  • NEW:  Song Intro's and Outro's and their related category tracks may now be separated by other spot groups within a rotation. eg.
    Song Intro (for Category1); Spot1; Spot2; Category1.  This may be used to introduce a song coming up after the commercial break, for example.

  • NEW:  The Clear Last Scheduled option has been removed as it is not needed now that the last 18 scheduled times for each track is now permanently stored.  The program detects if any last scheduled dates are in advance of the playlist Start Date, and automatically restores the dates to a previous date/time if required.

  • NEW:  Song Repeat Protection now takes all categories into account, and will recognize songs which have been added to two or more categories.  However, this requires that the same file in the same folder is used, and not a copy of the file.  An audio file copied to another folder will not be regarded as the same song and could be repeated within the song interval.
    However, a Windows shortcut to the file may be created and copied to other folders and this will be regarded as the same file.

  • NEW:  Title Repeat Protection is now available for global and individual categories.  This facility ignores the artist and ensures songs with the same title are not played within the interval.  This is useful when you have more than one cover of the same song, eg. Christmas songs.

  • NEW:  Next Day Song Repeat Protection is a new option on the Run Options tab.  This is a global setting to prevent the same song from repeating within (plus or minus) a specified number of minutes the next day.  This is useful when using high rotation categories with Song Repeat Intervals of 24 hours or less.  A value under 180 minutes is recommended.

  • NEW:  Due to changes in the Playlist log file structure, the Playlist Editor can not be used to edit playlists created with AirList v2.x.

  • NEW:  The Related Artists tab has been moved from the Options to a main tab.  Related Artist items are now modified in a Related Artist Properties window.

  • NEW:  Multiple items may now be selected on the Categories, Spot Groups, Rotations, Schedules, and Related Artists tabs.  This may be used to delete multiple categories, or other functions such as loading the tracks of multiple categories into the File List.

  • NEW:  "Select All" is a new Edit menu option to select all the items on the above mentioned tabs.

  • NEW:  The File List facility has new right-click menu options to "Copy all filenames to Clipboard" and "Copy all titles to Clipboard".  These may be used to paste all the filenames, or all the artist & titles in the File List into an application supporting text pasting, such as Notepad, and then printed if desired.

  • NEW:  "Open Containing Folder" is a new File List right-click menu option to open Windows Explorer at the folder containing the selected file.

  • NEW:  In Schedule Properties, a previous hour may now be repeated.  Right-click an hour and select "Replay a Previous Hour". A dialog will appear to select a previous day and hour to repeat.  Any changes made to the original hour, such as voice tracking or editing, will also be reflected in the replayed hour.

  • NEW:  A new virtual rotation is now available in Schedule Properties
    ....NONE... will prevent a playlist file being created for the hours where this is scheduled.  It should only be used when the hour's playlist already exists and should not be overwritten, or when tracks for this hour will be later inserted in the Playlist Editor manually.

  • NEW:  The Voice Track recording facility in the Playlist Editor now supports MP3 and Ogg files, in addition to WAV.  The file extension may be specified in the new VT Filename Format mentioned below.  Only some recording applications support MP3 and OGG files, such as NGWave and Adobe Audition.

  • NEW:  "Generate VT Filenames" is a new option on the Advanced Options tab.  This will generate the filenames for each scheduled Voice Track Marker.  Normally the VT filenames are generated when recording the voice tracks in the Playlist Editor.  This option allows the voice tracks to be recorded at a remote location and then uploaded to the studio at a later time.

  • NEW:  "VT Filename Format" is a new option to specify the filename structure of the voice track filenames.  The standard date/time formatting parameters may be used.  Generally, only the extension should need modifying.

  • NEW:  The size and position of most forms are now permanently stored between sessions, including the column positions of all list views.

  • NEW:  There is a new Print Playlist dialog in the Playlist Editor.  New options exist to select how many hours will be printed per page (1-3), and whether each track is double line spaced.

  • NEW:  The Playlist Editor now supports dragging of multiple selected items.

  • NEW:  Windows Shortcuts to audio files may now be dragged into the Playlist Editor.

  • NEW:  A Usage Analysis is now displayed in the Playlist Creation window after generating a playlist, and stored in the Generate.log file.  This shows how many times every Category, Spot Group, Rotation, and Schedule was used during the generation.

  • The Category and Spot Group Analysis also includes how often each category rotates.  This is the theoretical number of hours or days it takes to go through all tracks in the list before repeating a track.   This may be used to check if a category is being under or over used.  However, this figure assumes that nothing will prevent every track from being selected.  The Artist Repeat Interval, and the New Track Bias will significantly disrupt this theory.

  • NEW:  The playlist.html file is now generated by AirList when the HTML Playlist is generated.  Previously, the file was distributed in the installation.  This was done to enable proper functionality in non-English languages.

  • NEW:  If AirList finds missing files or folders while loading, options now exist to ignore missing files, or remove them from the Category or Spot Group list.

  • NEWCategory Properties and Spot Group Properties now support dragging files or folders from Windows Explorer into the File(s) or Folder(s) box.

  • NEWLarge Tool Buttons is a new option on the Advanced Options tab.  This is enabled by default, and will display large tool buttons with text captions in the tool bars at the top of the main AirList window, the Playlist Editor, and the File List window.

  • NEWEnable Track Preview is an option which has been moved from the Playlist Editor to the Playlist Options tab.  It should only be enabled when AirList is being used on a separate PC to the on-air broadcast player, or when two soundcards are installed.  When enabled, tracks may be played from the Playlist Editor and now the File List.

  • NEW:  The File List facility is now available from a Tool Bar button at the top of the main screen.

  • NEW:  The Standard edition of AirList now supports 15 categories, rather than 12.

  • NEW:  Printing the playlist from the Playlist Editor will now be in color for color printers, if Use Colored Items is enabled on the Advanced Options tab.

  • NEW:  In Rotation Properties, the Category/Spot Group boxes may now be resized by dragging the line separating the 2 boxes.

  • NEW Timed Events scheduled for the same time in Schedule Properties can now be scheduled in the order required.  Previously they were scheduled in alphabetical order of the Spot Group name.  This is done by selecting an Order number between 0 and 9.

  • NEW:  Fixed: Timed Events scheduled in Schedule Properties would not be scheduled if the number of timed items entered exceeded 127.

  • NEW File Wizard is a new button in Category Properties.  This provides an easy way of adding individual files to a category using information stored in the file tags, such as Genre, Year, Tempo, etc.

  • NEW:  The Track Properties dialog available from the File List and Playlist Editor has been restructured with several new fields arranged over several tabs as follows.  The Categorization tab contains details that can be used in the new File Import Wizard in Category Properties.  The Schedule Restrictions tab provides date range, time range and day of week selection restrictions.  This may be particularly useful for spots or commercials which should only be scheduled for a specific date range, for example.  It also provides an option to delete files from the hard drive once the date range has expired.  The History tab shows the last 18 times the track was scheduled.

  • NEW Backup Folder is a new option on the Run Options tab.  This is the folder where the data files will be copied to during a backup.

  • NEW Restore Data is a new menu option on the Tools menu.  This will restore the last backup configuration data and then reload all files.

  • NEW Auto Backup Data is a new option on the Run Options tab.  When enabled, AirLists's configuration data files will be copied to the Backup Folder when a Save All is executed.  The Backup occurs before the current information is saved.

  • NEW:  AirList will now prompt for confirmation when starting a playlist creation if playlists already exist for the selected day and hour.

  • NEW Rotation Properties and Schedule Properties now provide buttons to perform the available functions that were previously only available from right-click popup menus.

  • NEW:  A new column on the File List is titled 7 Days.  This shows the total number of times each track was scheduled in the last 7 days.  This total is calculated from the last 18 scheduled dates/times, so the maximum number tat can be displayed is 18+.

  • NEW:  The Voice Track recording dialog now shows several tracks above and below the recording point in the playlist so the DJ can see a longer list of the songs that will have played and will be playing.  All track types are now shown, not just songs as previously.

  • NEW:  The Voice Track dialog will now stay visible at all times.  Previously it was possible for the window to be hidden behind the recording application.

  • NEW Reshuffle Now is a new option in Category Properties.  This will reshuffle the order of the tracks in an existing category.  This may be useful after adding additional files to the category, which are shuffled and appended to the bottom of the track list by default.

  • NEW Reread All Foreign Tags is now available on the Tools menu.  This may be used to import new information entered into MP3 ID3 file tags and other foreign tag formats using 3rd party software.  This option is also available for an individual Category and Spot Group from the right-click menu and Edit menu.

  • NEW Auto Print Playlist is a new option on the Run Options tab which will print the playlist automatically after a playlist has been generated.

  • NEW Save Hour Range is a new checkbox on the Print Playlist dialog.  When enabled, the selected From and To hour range is stored and used next time a playlist is printed.  When disabled, the hour range defaults to all 24 hours. This option may be useful when used in combination with the Auto Print Playlist facility.

  • NEW:  Integration with 3rd party Traffic/Billing software has been implemented in AirList Pro.  Traffic software is designed to make management of commercials easier, with automatic schedule positioning, and often provides billing of the commercials to clients.  Traffic log files may be merged with an existing playlist using the Traffic Importer facility in the Playlist Editor.  Several options provide compatibility with most if not all traffic software, including Traffic Manager (http://www.studiomixx.com) and Natural Log (http://www.nat-soft.com/natlog.htm).  Commercial breaks must be scheduled in a playlist using a new break note code.  See the Traffic Importer chapter under the Playlist Editor chapter in the help documentation for more information.  Even though Raduga supports loading traffic logs separately to the music playlist, it may be useful to merge the advertisements into the music playlist for easier management.

  • NEW Revert to Saved and Restore Backup Log are new options on the Playlist Editor's File menu.  Revert to Saved will ignore all changes made since the last Save and will re-load the current log file.  Restore Backup Log will restore and load the previous log before the last Save.

  • NEW:  Break Notes and Voice Tracks will now be included in the HTML Playlist when the new checkbox "Include All Playlist Details " is checked.

  • NEW Playlist Header, Playlist Footer, Hour Header, and Hour Footer are new options on the Playlist Options tab.  These are designed for automation players other than Raduga, and provide support for XML style playlists.

  • NEW Scan Folders at Startup is a new option on the Advanced Options tab.  This option should generally be left enabled, but may be disabled to speed up the loading process.  When disabled, changes made to the folders or files in categories and spot groups will not take effect when generating a playlist.  In this case, a manual "Rescan All Folders" should be executed from the File Menu when files have been added or deleted from folders.

  • NEW Change Creation Password is a new Pro option on the Advanced options tab.  A password entered here will be required when attempting to create a playlist.  This may be useful to stop accidental or unauthorized creation of playlists.

  • NEW Change Master Password is a new Pro option on the Advanced options tab.  This password will be required when loading AirList.  A new Lock AirList option on the Tools Menu may also be used to lock access while AirList is loaded.

  • NEW:  A break note may now be used to add an extra track to only the hour the rotation is used.  Simply type the words extra track into a break note description.

  • NEWOverwrite Existing Playlists is a new checkbox on the Playlist Options tab.  When disabled, playlist files that already exist will not be generated and the rotations will be skipped in the Schedule.  This may be useful when some hours are manually created in advance, or playlist files for some hours are created elsewhere and copied to the Playlist Folder.  Generally this option should be left enabled.

  • NEW:  A new Spot Group Type called "Category List" has been added to Spot Group Properties.  Multiple categories may be added to the Spot Group.  When the Spot Group is utilized in a rotation, a category from the list is selected and used in place of the spot group.  The categories may be selected alphabetically, randomly, or in a specific order, as per normal spot tracks.

  • NEWWindows shortcuts to folders are now supported.  A folder shortcut may now be used within a folder or directly within a Category or Spot Group.

  • NEW:  The Missing Intro/Outro List has been renamed to Intro/Outro File Tool.  In the Pro Edition only, it now supports recording intros/outros for songs or artists using the Voice Track Recording Application set on the Advanced Options tab.  The file format/file extension is determined from the VT Filename Format, but the filename is named in the Artist - Title format.

  • NEW:  The Playlist Editor now uses the Windows clipboard to enable copy/paste from one playlist log to another.  The data may also be pasted to a text file and copy/pasted back to the Playlist Editor at the later date.

  • NEW:  In the Playlist Editor, "Paste from Explorer" is a new Edit menu and right-click popup menu item.  Files may now be copied from a folder in Windows Explorer and pasted into the playlist.

  • NEWLoad In Track Tool is a new Edit menu and right-click popup menu item to load all the tracks in the selected Categories or Spot Groups into the Track Tool.  The Track Tool button on the tool bar also supports this function, however, the Track Tool item on the Tools menu will load the Track Tool with no tracks loaded.

  • NEW:  The Track Tool now supports drag & drop from Windows Explorer to load folders or files.

  • NEW:  An "Open in Track Tool" is installed to the Windows right-click context popup menu item.  An individual file, or a folder containing many files may be opened.

  • NEWPlay in Preview Player is a new Windows right-click context popup menu item for playing a selected audio file in the StationPlaylist Preview Player.

  • NEW:  AirList 4.12 is fully compatible with Windows Vista.

  • NEW:  Due to Windows Vista security, the configuration and settings for AirList are now stored in a subfolder named "Data".  This folder will be given read/write/modify rights to all users of the computer at installation.  When AirList 4.12 is started for the first time, all data files will be moved to this new folder.

  • AirList will now operate in a Standard Windows user login account.  Previously only Administrators could operate AirList.  An Administrator is now only required for installation and registration of the software.  Include Voice Tracking Info is a new HTML Playlist option.  It will include voice track markers and song intro times in the playlist.  This may be useful for DJ's voice tracking remotely.

  • Output Category Names Only is a new HTML Playlist option.  It
    will only output category and spot group names rather than the
    selected track titles.
  • The HTML Playlist now requires a vlink HTML color specification
    in the Header code.  This is used for the color of the scheduled time
    and the song durations.  Also, all spots will now be shown in red.
  • In Category and Spot Group Properties, the Average Time is now shown in the format hh:mm:ss rather than whole seconds.
  • The File List now has an additional column showing the position
    of each track in the list.  The File List also shows the current
    position in the list by shading the tracks which have been previously
    selected.
  • All spots, including voice tracks, intros and outros, will have their
    duration re-calculated when loaded into the Playlist Editor.  This is
    to provide for the situation where spots, particularly voice tracks,
    may change externally but the filename remains the same.
  • The Playlist Editor now supports inserting end-of-hour timed spots.
    These are entered by checking (ticking) the 60th minute.
  • The Playlist File Path Substitution now supports an extra function.
    If the >From Path is blank and the To Path is not blank, the paths of
    all filenames within the playlist will be complete removed and replaced
    with the path in the To Path.  If the To Path only contains a period
    ".", the paths will be completely stripped and only the filenames will
    remain.
  • Fixed: New tracks added to a category were not being initially randomized. Fixed: The Random spot group option could produce alphabetical selections
    with large spot groups.
  • Fixed: Inserting tracks in the Playlist Editor would generate an
    "Invalid Time" error if any tracks in the hour exceeded 24 minutes.
    Fixed: Dragging a track in the Playlist Editor to the bottom of the hour would
    often not stay there, and would move up one in the order.
  • Tracks within the Insert dialog.  Existing Voice Track files may
    also be dragged into the Playlist Editor by holding the Alt key
    down during the drop.  Voice Tracks appear with a microphone icon.
  • Selecting an existing Voice Track in the Playlist Editor before executing "Record a Voice Track", will now edit the selected voice track rather than insert a new one.
  • Selecting an existing Voice Track in the Playlist Editor before executing "Record a Voice Track", will now edit the selected voice track rather than insert a new one.

  • A "Now" toolbar button will jump the Playlist Editor to the current hour. This is also available as an option on the Search menu.

  • Two new Spot Group Types are available. Voice Intro: This is identical to a Normal type, except these tracks will appear with a microphone icon in the Playlist Editor.  Block: All items in the Spot Group are added to the generated playlist in one block.  Only one entry in a Rotation or one Timed Spot is  required for all tracks to be selected.  This may be used where a group of tracks must be played sequentially, such as a or group of community notices.

  • Category Properties now has a Category Type where a Block type
    may be specified.  This is identical to the Block type mentioned
    above for Spot Groups.  When Block is selected, all items will be
    sorted alphabetically and inserted in the playlist.  This may be
    used for playing a complete CD, for example, with just one entry
    required in a rotation.

  • The Sort Spot Folders Combined option in the Advanced Options
    has been removed and replaced with a new option in Spot Properties.
    Individual Spot Groups may now be sorted with All Folders Combined,
    Per Folder, or Randomly.  Randomly is a new feature where all spot
    items are randomized in a list before a playlist is generated,
    similar to a Category.

  • In Rotation Properties, dragging an item within the Rotation
    List will now move the item to the new position rather than
    exchange the 2 items as it did previously.

  • The Category random track selection routines have been
    redesigned.  All tracks in a category will be made available for
    selection before the list is re-randomized.  Previously, the list
    was re-randomized every time Creator was loaded.  This should   substantially reduce the problem of some tracks not being selected for several weeks in a large category.

  • The Missing Intro/Outro List may now be printed.
  • The Playlist Editor can be loaded directly by using the -e command-line switch.  A shortcut with this switch, along with -i, has been added to the Windows Start menu.

  • The Help system has been upgraded from the old WinHelp system
    (HLP) to the new Compiled HTML Help system (CHM), which may be printed in it's entirety if required.

  • Fixed: Since 2.41, Inserting a track in the Playlist Editor, then loading a
    different playlist log and inserting the same track, would produce an error.

  • Fixed: Inserting a track in the Playlist Editor using the "Other" option, then attempting to record a Voice Track, would produce an Access Violation error.

  • Fixed: Any % symbols in an audio filename were being removed from
    the filename in the playlist.

  • Fixed: The MP3 duration calculation routine has been updated to support low bitrate files.

  • Fixed: Since v2.11, Timed Spots scheduled for 0 minutes past the hour were being scheduled as the second item in the playlist rather than the first.
  • Fixed: The Spot Summary Log was missing the first scheduled item of each spot, however, the totals for each spot were correct.
  • New: The Playlist Editor now supports inserting files by drag & drop from Windows Explorer.  By default, tracks are inserted with the CD icon, however, by holding the Ctrl key down during the drop, the tracks are inserted as spots.
  • Support for the lossless audio compression format Monkey's Audio (.APE files) has been added.
  • Individual file extensions supported by AirList may now be selected/deselected in the Advanced Options.  Unhighlighted extensions will be ignored when scanning folders for audio/video files.
  • All Ctrl+Alt keyboard shortcuts have been changed to Shift+Ctrl to remove conflicts with Windows application shortcuts.
  • The maximum number of days a playlist can be generated has increased from 7 days to 90 days.  The playlist Start Day has changed from a day of week selection to a date selection.  This is also reflected in the Playlist Editor, and the HTML Playlist.  Also added is a selection for the number of hours to generate the playlist.  It is not now limited to whole days.
  • To support the changes above, the HTML Playlist filename format has changed to mmmddhh.html, eg. Jun3012.html.  A new playlist.html file is now being distributed which will load the correct playlist based on the current day and hour.  Please update your website to use the new playlist.html.
  • The next generation Day, and optionally the Hour, will be updated automatically when the Save All button is clicked after a playlist creation.  The Hour will only be updated if the new Auto Increment Hour option is checked.
  • An option has been added to the Playlist Options to delete playlists and HTML playlists that were created over a specific number of days ago, based on the file modified date.  The deletion is performed, if required, at the start of each playlist creation.
    Warning: With the exception of playlist.html and index.html, the deletion routine will delete all files, not just playlist files in these two folders.
  • Related Artists is now supported.  A new tab has been added to the Options.  Related Artists is where two or more artists are considered by AirList to be the same artist for the Artist Repeat Protection.
    eg. It will be possible to keep "The Beatles" and "George Harrison" from appearing within the Artist Repeat interval.  See the online help for more details.
  • Song or artist introductions may now be easily inserted in front or after songs.  This helps a station sound live when unattended.  A new option in Spot Properties identifies a Spot Group as an Intro or Outro Group.  The audio files contained in an In/Outro Group should be named identically to the songs they are introducing.  If a matching intro file is not found, a file matching the artists name is used.  If this is not found then no intro is included.
  • Missing Intro/Outro List is a new Tools menu option which will list the files in a Category which do not have a matching file in an Intro or Outro Spot Group.
  • Fixed: The wrong Intro or Outro could be selected if a matching file did not exist.
  • Fixed: A memory leak when loading more than one playlist log in the Playlist Editor has been fixed.
  • A Voice Tracking system has been implemented in the new Pro version. See the Edit Menu options in the Playlist Editor chapter of the online help documentation for details.  This feature provides a very easy and fast method of inserting voice announcements into predetermined positions in the playlist to make your station sound live even when unattended.  This system requires a compatible 3rd party audio editor.  The following are compatible: Windows Sound Recorder, NGWave (recommended), Cool Edit, Adobe Audition, Sound Forge.
  • Two selected tracks in the Playlist Editor may now be exchanged using a new Edit menu or right-click popup menu option.
  • The Spot Summary & Track Summary are now saved to unique filenames for each playlist creation.  Older summaries may be printed by opening the related playlist log file (plg) in the Playlist Editor.
  • Include Scheduled Start Time is a new HTML Playlist option.  When enabled, the scheduled start time of each track will appear to the left of the track title.
  • Usage List is a new Edit menu & right-click menu item.  For a Category or Spot Group, it lists all the rotations that it is used in.  For a Spot Group, it also lists the Schedules where the group is used as a Timed Spot.  For Rotations, it lists the Schedules that the Rotation is used in.
  • The Category & Spot Group maintenance forms are now both resizable.
  • A microphone icon is now used to identify voice tracks and intros/outros in the Playlist Editor.
  • Fixed: Various forms now display correctly when using large Windows fonts.
