I didn't notice that they released 1.5 on 1 May, and they are now at 1.53 !

A lot of things have been added:
Quote:
1.53
- MPEG with PCM audio will offer now only option to demultiplex


1.51-1.52
- False Mismatch - Fatal Error 723, appearing on some computers
- The color group 1 and 2 were swapped
- Wrong upgrade and full price in Buy dialog
- Smart Color Scheme for menus


1.5 (May 1, 2005)
- Fix for delayed button colors in cell1 if Normal color is used (rare)
- If you change the mpeg file size, the associated frame index will be now deleted. Previously DVD-lab used frame index as long as it had the same name as the mpeg which was a potential source of chapter errors if you re-encoded mpeg, but keep the same name.
- Added LPCM -> LPCM 48kHz upsampling
- Added new exciting VM Block Editor. This is a great unique way to visually create VM scripts that are always relative to the project. That means the various links reflects changes in your project, goto commands keep the correct lines, registers can be named etc...
- Added strong, project-wide VM command step debugger. You can step through an object or the whole propject VM commands line by line and see the behaviour.
- Added Paragraph Text for menus (Word wrapping)
- Added Quiz maker
- Connection Canvas size can be adjusted (Properties)
- New better, more accurate and faster menu encoding. Now with less color ringing, blockiness and color leaking.
- Advanced Processing for menus - Normal, Sharper or Jitter reduced (blured)
- Free-up memory command. This will temporary close all menus and free up memory occupied by them. The memory will be reclaimed once the menu is opened again. Use this option if you have too many menu and running short of memory.
- Fixed issues with crashing in Render Motion, new AVI codec select dialog, smoother mpeg output.
- Added PRO Extension set of tools by Mark Hamilton and Holger Ahrens:
While playing back (with sound) ellementary Video and Audio ProEx allows:
o Add Chapters and then export it in DVD-lab PRO format
o Find Black frame (for example beginning of commercial)
o Add Subtitles and then export it in DVD-lab PRO *.srt format
o Edit the file (removing parts) of audio and video using its MPEG editor
o Create JACKET_TS folder
- Added Play All playlist (doesn't need to add any movies)
- LabTalk added:
* MenuSetBackgroundImage,
* MenuGetFromLabel,
* ObjectSetCommand,
* ObjectLinkToMenuBtnSel,
* ObjectSetNavLinkUp/Down/Left/Right
* ObjectGetNavLink
* ListAdd, ListAddItem
* VMObjectAdd
* MovieAddChapters
LabTalk changed
* MenuAdd/From (fixed return value for VMG +10000)
After 5 months of silence, that's a good news

Having a problem with buttons. Doing a tv series capture with 7 episodes.

I created 7 episode titles on menu with an object arrow beside each title and link arrow objects to first chapter of each video. On computer, everything works. On TV, cannot select all videos, as each selection skips to every other one button. For example, starts with button one, press down arrow on dvd remote, third episode selects, press again, fifth episode selects. CyberHome 300 DVD player with no previous problems like this.

As I stated, buttons select correctly on computer (WinDVD4 & Windows Media Player) but not on DVD player.

Did you verify the navigation arrows in the menu ? Are they ok ? If they are not, unselect the "auto-route" box and draw the arrows yourself.

Yeah, checked out the arrows and lines. Strange thing is that the arrows worked correctly on the computer. The episodes were also selected correctly with the numbers on the DVD player remote keypad.

Deleted the arrows and linked directly to the episode titles and everything worked on both the computer and DVD player. Will play with later and try to figure out what happened.

Thanks, Phil

And here it is, the 1.55
Quote:
1.55
- Group assets by Parent Folder option, with the ability to drag the whole group to the connection which will create multiple movie objects.
- Customizable Test Compile (you can specify which Movies are going to be replaced by Dummy)
- A new Link HUB object, a single place that distributes links across the project optionally with setting two GPRM parameters. Great for training, quiz etc.
- fix: Labtalk VM commands and the Block/Script confussion
- added Open & Free memory - open large project while freeing menu memory on the same time
- Record module enhancements and drivers compatibility issues (v. 3.1)
I think I'll like the two first changes.

Did you heard about DVDLabPro 2.0 ?

It is out since February but seems to have a problem with subtitles ("out of memory" error when there is more than 1000 subtitles).

A hotfix has been delivered.

Changelog is there :

Keep the old 1.6 in a spare directory : the now 2.0 needs A LOT of memory. VM usage about 512 MB for a 3-movie project !
