Version 0.4.2
  • Release Date: Nov 21, 2008
  • A few fixes
Version 0.4.1
  • Release Date: Nov 13, 2008
  • The focus has for the most part been on developing new features and less time has been spent on fixing bugs and cleaning up the code. This has led to that bugs have been piling up so now I thought it was time to really focus on the user experience and I hope you like the result. I could list all the fixes but it’s easier to just say that most if not all problems I’m aware of should be fixed. (knock on wood)
  • This release also contains the following new translations:
    • Vietnamese by Mai Tien
    • Finnish by Jani Malinen
    • Italian by both Antonio Sardei and Giuliano Brasson
    • Polish by Kamil Kaczy?ski
    • Turkish by Dogucan
    • French by Wilomaz
Version 0.4.0
  • Release Date: Sep 12, 2008
  • This release is mostly a bug fix release so no real new features but a few have been polished a bit. I’ve also made a zip package for those that don’t want to use the installer. The package is completely portable and can be run from an USB memory stick or similar. Also Kantaris has now been translated to several new languages and I would like to thank everyone that has contributed. Thanks to:
    • Siarhei Kuchuk for the Russian translation
    • Maurício Meneghini Fauth for the Brazilian Portuguese translation
    • Martin Basgier for the German translation
    • Tony Yu for the Simplified and Traditional Chinese translation
    • Joco1114 for the Hungarian translation
    • AD Lucans for the Spanish translation
    • Muhammad Nour for the Arabic translation
Version 0.3.9
  • Release Date: Aug 14, 2008
  • 0.3.9:I forgot to include the language files in the previous version which in turn messed everything up. I’ll never release a new version at 2 AM again :p . Sorry about that, lets try again.

  • 0.3.8a: Development of this version took much longer time than I originally expected. The reason for this is that I started working on several new features at ones. Not all of these features are in version 0.3.8a because then I would have needed another month before I could do a release. The main new features in 0.3.8a are a multi-language GUI and a video library browser. Kantaris 0.3.8a has support for English, Swedish and Russian and I’m hoping that you will help to translate it to other languages as well. The video library feature is made using DirectX and looks like a 3d wall made up of movie posters (see picture). Lastly, 0.3.8a also of course contains some other smaller improvements and bug-fixes compared to 0.3.7. If you wonder why the version is named 0.3.8a instead of 0.3.8 it’s because I forgot to fix one thing before uploading 0.3.8.
Version 0.3.7
  • Release Date: May 17, 2008
