Another Friday, another software update from the folks at Kinoma. We could get used to this kind of treatment.
This time around we get clipboard auto-paste, handy for entering URLs; an honest to goodness exit menu command; power management fixes; an improvement to the auto scan; and network issues.
Give the update a go, and let us know in the comments if you're seeing any improvement in your scan time.
And check in after the jump for the full list of fixes in Version 5.0.60.
Full list of updates:
- Open URL now features “clipboard auto-paste” — if you’ve previously copied a URL, it’ll be entered by default.
- You can now exit Kinoma Play with the new Exit command, available from Kinoma Play’s main screen in the Player menu. Previously, Microsoft strongly preferred that Windows Mobile handle exiting automatically. Recently, Microsoft updated their guidelines to allow for PC-style exit commands. You can still let the Windows Mobile handle this for you if you prefer.
- All known power management issues have been fixed. Now you can turn off the screen manually on Windows Mobile Professional/Pocket PC and Kinoma Play will keep playing as you’d expect, just as it previously has on Windows Mobile Smartphone. (Note: A handful of phones shut off Wi-Fi when you shut off the screen. That’s a bug in the Wi-Fi driver that can only be fixed by the phone maker.)
- We found some phones that misreported the type of CPU they have, which could cause slower-than-expected video performance and occasionally even crashes. We’ve come up with a workaround that should fix this for any affected phones.
- The media scanner now automatically excludes more folders used by apps (TomTom, GoodSync) that put application image/audio resources in unexpected places.
- We fixed a rare scenario where Kinoma Play would wake up grumpy after going to sleep while doing network access, and consequently use way too much CPU time.
Update 6: Microsoft wants all of TikTok, but Trump's order may interfere
The Financial Times reports that as part of negotiations, Microsoft is now inquiring whether it can buy all of TikTok, instead of just the business in the US., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. This new plan would include India and Europe (and excluding China).
