    2. NEW: When turning lyrics on, they will be looked up for the current file if it has no lyrics.
    3. Changed: If lyrics display is on, each track will lookup lyrics as it is played if it doesn't already have lyrics.
    4. NEW: Added an option to "Automatically clean up time-shifting folders daily".
    5. Changed: The Cloudplay web page is now directly accessed from the Cloudplay item in the main tree. It used to be under the Playlists node in the tree.

    2. NEW: Added play Radio JRiver toolbar buttons.
    3. Changed: The new stream analyzer to determine the playback type no longer runs on URLs.
    4. Changed: Made the bitrate in the player window padded so it's about the same width when switching to and from 1000.
