A few embarrassing bugs slipped into the last release.

- Fix alignment issues with subtitles.
Make sure each rendered text line is aligned same way as the text bounding box
Fixes ticket #497

Showtime now depends on libav 0.7 (13 comments)
I've decided to move Showtime to depend on what-will-be libav 0.7. For those of you that build for Linux distributions this will most likely break the build. But have no fear! There are instructions for how to build libav so it works fine with Showtime in Showtime's README file
New release 2.99-284 (26 comments)
Mostly bugfixes in this release, here are the highlights:
- ps3: Fix video bitrate calculation when using SPU decoder
- Fix bitmapped subtitle formats (VOBSUB) on bigendian (such as PS3) systems. Ticket #433
- Fix scanning of SRT subtitles Ticket #408.
- webdavclient: Strip 'http://host' in webdav responses before parsing. Ticket #426
- linux: Prefer openssl over libssl
- ps3: Use system fonts (Latin, Japanese, Korean, Chinese) so lots of more characters should work now
- subtitles: Autodetect encoding of SRT files
- ps3: Fix seeking bugs when playing with cell acceleration
- ps3: Force cell decoder into level 4.2 even if content is 5.x
- Add support for all ISO 8859 character encodings and make it configurable in Language -> Settings which default character encoding to use for SRT files.

Showtime can do 1080p on the PS3 (40 comments)
I've hooked up Showtime to the video decoder libraries already present on the PS3. This will accelerate h264 (Up to level 4.2) and MPEG2 video decoding so it can play up to 1080p content.
If you want to make sure that the Cell acceleration is actually used you can press L3 during video playback to see the status window.
Make sure that the video codec mentions (Cell) at the end of the row. Just like in this screenshot
Showtime now available for PS3 (14 comments)
After about a month of hacking I'm happy to announce that Showtime now can be run as a native "homebrew" application on the PS3. See PS3 usage guide for more information of how to get started.

Showtime's webpage updated (2 comments)
Today I finally got around to updating Showtime's webpage.
The screenshots and features were so much out of date that I was reluctant to even give the URL to people asking about Showtime.
Anyway, now when the site have moved from a lousy web hosting site to a decent VPS I have much better tools for keeping the site a bit more up to date and also the news feed is much easier to edit since it's based on the news feature in redmine.
I also have some really cool stuff up my sleeve that I hope to be able to release in one or two weeks. Talk to you then!
