    By Robby_BMW:
    * Added the ability to change the encoding used for the phonebooks by adding the line "phonebooksencoding=CODE (i.e. phonebookscoding=ISO 8859-1)" in rr.ini. If omitted is used the standard encoding (UTF-8). (Snek request)
    * Added support for contact's picture in more PhoCo screens ("", "", "", "", "", "", "", "" and ""). (Freakers request)

    -To Use GDI+ you must set fastmode=-1 in RR.INI and register the DLL like this:
    regsvr32 GDIPluswrapper.dll
    -GDI+ uses MORE memory than Fastmode=0 (default), but it's faster and allows for using transparency.. I know for a fact some skinners are already working on skins using that feature. It also allows you to use one of the high-res weather images on and allows you to view PNG and TIFF on the Picture viewer.
    -It took a lot of time for me to work on the GDI+ stuff, so sorry if I didn't get some requests/mods in place in this release.. please feel free to remind me of anything I forgot.
    -Check TXT files for details on new commands and settings.
    -I haven't updated RRConfig yet, so if you want to use the Silabs radio, open RR.INI and set radiomode=7
    -If you want to skin with Transparencies, there's an example of Transparencies HERE
    -The Updater will be able to update to this version, but currently it says "unsuccessful" though it DOES work. W3bmast3r will update the installshield and the updater as soon as he has a chance to do so.

    There's always more to come.. enjoy it for now,
    Thanks for the support and patience with this long overdue update..

        Thanks Guino, Great work as always

        I'll update the full installer in the morning... for now, the updaters should work

        note... the updater may say the update was unsuccessful.. not sure why yet, but it does work, and the updates are successful. Just tried it myself. Looks like I'll have to work on the updater... but you all are good to go

        /edit: @ Guino, the updater pulls the binary from your site, but to make things simple (not having to download the archive, extract, figure out the version, etc... just to get the version) it pulls the new version date from a text file on my site... so one lil change and it's good to go (which it's done)...

                Great job Guino you just made my life fun. Could you pm me with some links you found handy for GDI+ programming? Maybe some sites or books you found that helped you the most with adding the new features. Thanks.
