    - Destinator SDK is now integrated but usable only with a touch screen at this time.
    - There is now more options for GPS launching, you can set it to « ASK » to see a menu to choose between Mappoint, Destinator or external app’s or define the gps mode to launch each time.
    - There is now a « Down » state for every button in the skin - Hybernate function added to the exit menu

    V1.8.1 (I don't want to arrive at the 2.0 now )
    News :

    - Support for skin change "on the fly" with a menu and a preview of the skin, use the "ying/yang" button on the main menu
    - Option to launch automatically a module or the last module used or nothing when Medacar startup .

    - Added possibility to define the file name pattern for cover image to keep maximum compatibility with your personal folder and files structures.
    - additional code to use the default skin for a module if its files miss in the current skin. That gives more time to Skinners to modify their skins when I add new menus or modules

    - Some other small potential bugs corected.



    V1.8:

    - There is new options to chose to run the winamp visualisation embedded or not and to specify the name of the visualisation window to found (Before, mediacar always try to find a window with a name like "*AVS*"). Now you can use the visualisation that you want, simply specify the good name, generic caractère "*" are suported.
    - Option added to Hide the mouse when Mediacar start.

    V1.6:
    News :

    - All your parameters are now restaured when you instal a new version
    - It's now Winamp 2.91 in the package with ogg plugin, but the AVS plugin is the V2.5 from the previous Winamp version because the AVS V2.6 give problem to be run emmbeded in another software.

    - The incompatibility between gamma gestion and Xvid Codec when the color deep is set to 32 Bits is corrected, to do this I need to always unload the video file when I apply gamma correction and reload it after gamma correction is disabled then the time to comeback to the videoplayer from the mixer or video browser will be a little bigger but it's actually the only solution that I have found.

    V1.5:

    You can now define a day and night Gamma color correction for each Skin and switch between the two in manual and in automatic with a timer. (See the "Appearance" tab)

    Corrected for external GPS software and external DVD software.
    -"When the nav is in off postion the cordinates change and the green light is blinking. When i change it to another mode is see 1 red blink and the cordinates update stops and there is no lock on the position."
    corrected, The NMEA stream will be correctly processed for all GPS receivers now.
    -"When i press track in gps it freezes the screen im in.

    On the setup screen for the gps setting, it doesn't allow you to choose a different directory. I guess i have to manual type it in...

    The skin takes 13Mo, there is a lot of menu and different screens, it's the cost of the flexibility

    I use a ratio of 12 for the jpg's compression of the skin, it's possible that a ratio of 30 don't make so visible différence, i don't have tested.

    On the external apps section, the button at the top labeled "Close" doesn't work. Also, when I press for the dvd player it gives me the keyboard.

    I have forgotten to change the DVD button function, I used it to launch the OSK when I have coded it for testing.

    I will put online a new executable corrected in a few minutes
