~~~ Release Notes for 5.2 Producer ~~~
There are interesting changes for the chat, the video input and the connectivity.
All chat settings can be controlled via the new chat control dialog. The dialog opens with a click on the top-level row of the producer user list (with special chat status icons, see
The settings are stored permanently. If you select the "Open Chat" option, then it will be used after the next start or a takeover.
The "Login Required" and "Private Allowed" options in the preset design mode have been removed. The "Enable Autofill" option has been removed, too (it is always active).
Guests can be blocked completely from the chat, i.e. they can neither read nor write (for details see
User that have left the chat will stay for 60 seconds in the producers user list, with a "[Bye]" prefix. This allows to ban users after they have left the chat.
Pictures and background must be loaded from an URL, the file loading is no longer supported (the reason is that streaming the pictures takes a long time)
Note that old presets are still supported.
Video- and Audio-Source
The video and audio sources are no longer stored in the preset. Instead, the last selected value is stored permanently (in the registry). At start the producer will try to open this device; if it is not possible, all other available devices are tested until one opens. The device is only changed when the user selects a new device.
The video input was changed from VfW (Video for Windows) to WDM driver. WDM is the current Windows driver format, which is supported by most hardware.
... and many small changes, improvements and bug fixes, like:
correct color selection under vista
better connectivity (user can enter more easily)
installation without admin rights
better handling of "Multiple Instances"
improved intranet connectivity
Have fun with the new producer,
