The code has gone through a good deal more testing. I made a major internal change by ditching the Lobo browser and switching to the gecko engine (mozSwing). This now brings flawless rendering (even flash plugins work which means I will add direct trailer preview). So here are the few details (albeit, they were notable internally):
- Switch to gecko engine. The code now includes all the Xulrunners for the gecko platforms, various Macs (PPC and i386, Linux, Solaris and Win32. The installer has grown fat but there is really nothing I can do about it besides splitting the distribution into six pieces. You can determine during installation what OS platforms you want to support, just the download is a bit heavy.
- I also added authorization for the installer under Vista. While you had to jump through some hoops to install into 'Program Files' with Vista, the installer now behaves like any other installer, prompting for authorization when UAC is turned on.
- Support for Rotten Tomatoes. When rick-clicking on a movie you can now opt to see the Rotten Tomatoes reviews. Due to the way the browser engine is integrated this is fairly quick, fetching a page under the coders and then redirecting you to the target page. The browser is really instantaneous, it is loaded asynchronously at program startup time and then merely popped up. However, because a page is fetched before the actual reviews are shown you still experience that delay. Still faster than if you would fire up whatever other browser you use.
- A few optical improvements. More icons.
- The search text on the main application panel is no longer case-sensitive.
I would really appreciate Mac feedback.
