      • Full list of changes:
    • Enabled NVDec hardware decoding, supported only when using an NVEnc encoder and with the right hardware.

    • Added an option to remove the cap of 3 simultaneous NVEnc encodes. Only those that have custom NVidia drivers that remove the cap should choose this.

    • Increased the maximum simultaneous encode setting cap to 16.

    • Added log window virtualization. This should greatly reduce memory use and prevent hangs when using Extended logging.

    • Added the option to use a polling folder watcher (Global options -> Advanced -> Watcher mode). This is a slower, less efficient way of detecting files in watched folders, but is a good option if you find the regular watcher is not functioning.

    • Updated Global Options to immediately apply changes.

    • Added shortcuts to the Encoding Settings and Picker windows from the Global Options window. It includes desriptions to help people find settings they are looking for.

    • Added a Picker ability to choose titles based on the width or height.

    • Changed to delay the allow sleep operation until after the post-encode triggers have had a chance to execute. This should fix an issue where the system would sleep instead of shutting down as configured.

    • Added "None" option for automatic audio track selection.

    • When editing a queue item, the original preset name is now shown first, "Old preset - Restored from Queue" rather than just showing "Restored from Queue".
