Announcing Zoom Player v13.7.1

Hi Everyone,

This release is all about bug fixes and many were fixed:

+ Adding chapters using the chapter editor will now instantly show the chapter's position in the timeline (if timeline display is enabled).
- Fixed a bug in countries with a comma decimal symbol where the media library thumbnails text height and spacing got truncated.
For example:
A thumbnail's Text Height of "1.95%" resulted in an actual text height of "1%".
- Loading ".PLS/.XSPF" playlists where the first item in the playlist did not play (e.g. "server down") would trigger an infinite loop and Zoom Player froze.
- The inactive navigation txt-lines background was not being drawn.
- The "I" key will again close the information dialog if it is visible.
- The media library category sorting order and last folder position could get reset under some conditions due to insufficient registry memory allocation.
- Setting the control bar to appear with a fixed width while in
fullscreen did not show the control bar in the right position (or at all) on secondary monitors.
- Setting the control bar to appear at the top or bottom of the screen did not show the control bar in the right position (or at all) on secondary monitors.
- The media library category editor did not show the currently enabled scraping mode, thumbnail aspect ratio and thumbnail columns when a language pack was installed.
- The playlist editor line-spacing did not work well with every font.
- Slight adjustment to the media library's thumbnail text drawing to better account for fonts with less-uniform character heights.
- It was possible for a new components/filters notification to trigger without new components being available. It was triggered due to a new version of Zoom Player being available on the install center. Since player updates has its own notification, this message is redundant.
