FFmpeg plugin v. r11656 (FFmpeg player plugin for the PM123, 15/2/2008, ntim) Readme/What's new
FFmpeg play (fmgplay) r11656-11 =============================== Introduction ------------ This is a FFmpeg player plugin for the PM123. FFmpeg is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and video, developed and maintained by group of authors at http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/. Features -------- Based on ffmpeg-SVN-r11656. Playback, seek, fast forward and rewind seems ok in common cases. System requirements ------------------- OS/2 Warp 3 and up PM123 1.31 or later, http://glass.os2.spb.ru/software/english/pm123.html libc063.dll (latest known at the moment is from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/libc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.exe) Warnings and limitations ------------------------ This version is not hardly tested. Use with care! Extension-based format recognition disabled in this version. Some formats with altered header (ID3v1-prepended, for example) may be false-recognised. flacplay-1.2.1-10 reported to incorrectly recognise .wma files (supported by fmgplay!) as .flac files, that may cause fail to play. To fix - place flacplay below fmgplay in plag-ins list of PM123 (remove flacplay from list and add flacplay.dll again after fmgplay.dll added). Not all formats and codecs, supported by ffmpeg, are reported to work with fmgplay (ffmpeg needs gcc 4.2.x, but only gcc 3.3.5 is available). This time only the first audio stream played from a multi-stream file. (This may be fixed later with PM123 interface update). Only limited set of tags (ID3v1?) supported by ffmpeg and hence by fmgplay. To avoid unnecessary pollution, no ffmpeg-supported extensions added into PM123 open file dialog. Please try <all files (.*)> file filter to select ffmpeg-supported files there. Installation ------------ - make it sure that libc063.dll located somewhere in your LIBPATH - place the file fmgplay.dll into the directory where PM123.EXE located - start PM123 - Right-click on the PM123 window to open the "properties" dialog - Choose the page "plugins" - Press the "add" button in the "decoder plugin" section - Choose "shnplay.dll" in the file dialog. Press Ok. - Close "PM123 properties" dialog Now you can listen more audio files (and audio streams from video files)! De-Installation --------------- In case of any trouble with this plugin close PM123 and remove fmgplay.dll from the PM123.EXE directory. License ------- Copyright (C) 2008 ntim <ntim@softhome.net>.

Shorten player plugin v. 3.6.1-10 (Shorten player plugin for the PM123, 24/1/2008, ntim) Readme/What's new
Shorten play (shnplay) 3.6.1-10 ======================= Introduction ------------ This is a Shorten player plugin for the PM123. Shorten is an audio compressor (lossy and lossless) originally written by Tony Robinson at SoftSound Ltd. Features -------- Based on shorten-3.6.1 from http://etree.org/shnutils/shorten/ Seek tables (either appended or .skt standalone) are supported. System requirements ------------------- OS/2 Warp 3 and up PM123 1.31 or later, http://glass.os2.spb.ru/software/english/pm123.html libc063.dll (latest known at the moment is from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/libc/libc-0_6_3-csd3.exe) Warnings and limitations ------------------------ This version is not hardly tested. Use with care! VBR calculation is not a time-accurate (ahead on size of audio buffer). Only shortens which have RIFF wave original (most common case?) are tested. Forward seek is time-consuming in shortens without seek tables (seek table can be created with "shorten -s" or "shorten -S").

Musepack plugin v. 1.2.2 (Musepack (.mpc, .mp+) plugin for PM123, 16/6/2006, ntim) Readme/What's new
Musepack v1.2.2 Play 0.00 ========================= Introduction ------------ This is Musepack Living Audio Compression decoder plugin for PM123. Based on Musepack sv7 1.5 (library version 1.2.2). Early OS/2 build. Musepack is an audio compression format with a strong emphasis on high quality. It's not lossless, but it is designed for transparency, so that you won't be able to hear differences between the original wave file and the much smaller MPC file. It is based on the MPEG-1 Layer-2 / MP2 algorithms, but since 1997 it has rapidly developed and vastly improved and is now at an advanced stage in which it contains heavily optimized and patentless code. (http://www.musepack.com/) System requirements ------------------- Working PM123 (relatively modern version), http://glass.os2.spb.ru/software/english/pm123.html libc061, ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.1-csd1.zip Installation ------------ - make it sure that LIBC061.DLL located somewhere in your LIBPATH - place the file mpcplay.dll into directory where PM123.EXE located - start PM123 - Right-click on the PM123 window to open the "properties" dialog - Choose the page "plugins" - Press the "add" button in the "decoder plugin" section - Choose "mpcplay.dll" in the file dialog. Press Ok. - Close "PM123 properties" dialog Now you can listen Musepack compressed (.mpc, .mp+) audio files!

See doc/GNUCOPYING for details. Warnings and known bugs ----------------------- This version are from a litle to almost untested. Use with care! The author is not responsible for any damage this program may cause. Due to limitation of seek algorithm random positioning in a big media file may take a time. Fast forward may cause delay also. Rewind is disabled at all. Due to "always-VBR" nature of Musepack stream the bit rates in pm123 v.1.3.1 and early are not shown correctly with some skins (including default one). Please see later versions... Sources ------- Sources of mpcplay.dll located in src/ directory.

Crossfading plugin v. 1.5 (Crossfading plugin for PM123, 21/6/2002, Andreas Schoesser) Readme/What's new
Crossfading-Plugin v1.5 for PM123 ================================= 1) Introduction --------------- This is a fading plugin for the mp3 player PM123. With this plugin, you can achieve seamless playing. That is, if you start a new song and the currently playing song is not finished yet, this plugin performs a cross-fade: The currently playing song is faded out gently while at the same time the new song is faded in. 2) System requirements ---------------------- You need the following components to run this plugin: - OS/2 Warp 3 or higher - DART installed - A sound card :-) - The mp3 player PM123 1.1 Beta 3 or higher 3) Installation --------------- Place the file fade.dll into the PM123.EXE directory. Then perform the following steps: - start PM123 - Right-click on the PM123 window to open the "properties" dialog - Choose the page "plugins" - Press the "add" button in the "output plugin" section - Choose "fade.dll" in the file dialog. Press Ok. - Press the "Activate" button for fade.dll And off you go! 4) Configuration ---------------- In the configuration dialog of the plugin you can choose the output device. Deselect "shareable" if you don't want your music to be interrupted by other sounds (e.g. this annoying ICQ sound :-) You can also choose the number of sound buffers used by the plugin. More buffers result in a longer fading time, but the plugin also uses more memory! I think 40 buffers is a good choice, the minimum is 32 buffers, the maximum 100. If your audio device isn't able to play 48kHz samples, you can select "Play 48kHz as 44 kHz"... Doesn't sound very good, though :-) If you check the box "Autofade songs in playlist" the plugin fades in the next song in list shortly before the current song is being finished. I recommend to use 70-80 buffers in this mode. This is because many songs have up to 2 seconds silence at the end. Thus with a short fading time you wouldn't be able to recognize the fade effect. By default, "trash buffers on seek" is turned on, that is if you move the seek slider, PM123 jumps immediately to the specified position. In previous versions, it took a while until the seek slider reacted to your input. Again, it was a little bit tricky to do, so I don't know if it works everywhere. If it doesn't work for you (that is if the fading itself doesn't work anymore): turn it off. Press OK to save your settings. The changes will take effect, when a new song is started. 5) License ---------- Fade.dll ist freeware. The author is not responsible for any damage this program may cause. 6) Download ----------- You can download the newest version of fade.dll at - Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/) - My homepage (http://andreas.schoesser.org) -> Goto "Andi's Programming Projects" Here you may download the mp3 player PM123: - http://www.sektori.com/pm123 7) History ---------- Version Comments 0.5 - first public release 0.6 - Fixed bug in buffering logic: Sometimes fade.dll didn't fade. - Fixed bug: fade.dll didn't terminate a song correctly when there was no more data to play. - Analyzer now works correctly - Implemented priority boost - Implemented display function for error messages, thus PM123 should not crash on error messages any more 0.7 - Fixed a crash caused by "division by 0" 0.8 - Implemented autofade function - Fixed bug: Now the user defined amount of buffers is used 1.0 - Fixed bug: Sometimes fade.dll played "scattered" sound after fading - Fixed bug: Single channel mp3s were not played correctly. - Fixed bug: Pause button stopped playing since v0.8 - Fixed bug: Not every song was played to it's end when using autofade mode - Hope I fixed all possible crashes... But you never know :) 1.1 - Internal version 1.2 - You can now have several instances of PM123 open with fade.dll loaded (shouldn't crash any more). 1.3 - Sound output is now (hopefully) played through the correct soundcard if you have 2 soundcards installed. I wasn't able to test this... 1.31 - As it is always: New settings didn't take effect in v1.3. So here's the fix. 1.4 - Fixed bug: The last 4 buffers were not played with previous versions. 1.5 - I hope I fixed an annoying bug introduced with v1.4: While v1.31 didn't play the last 4 buffers of a song (could be recognized when playing very short mp3s), v1.4 played too many buffers; that is in some cases it played 1 or 2 false buffers at the end of a song, resulting in an annoying short "click-sound". Should be gone now. - Implemented "trash buffers on seek". The seek slider should now react in an acceptable time. 8) Comments and known bugs -------------------------- - This plugin only fades songs that have the same sampling rate and sampling resolution. I think this is no problem, because most mp3s are encoded at 44kHz, 16 bit. - It only accepts sampling resolutions (bps) at 8 and 16 bit. I haven't seen a mp3 file with an alternate bps value, though... - A "fast" computer could be necessary. This does not mean, that this plugin takes much processing power, it doesn't, indeed. But the decoder should be able to provide enough predecoded buffers, otherwise the plugin could get some timing trouble. To avoid this, I built in the same priority boost algorithm also used in Samuel's original output plugin. Never tried it on a slow computer, though. - The autofade function is quite a hack because the plugin doesn't really know when the decoder has finished a song. So it uses some timing logic. Might not work for every song. If you hear short breaks in the middle of the song even when the system is idle try to disable this function. - If you encounter a bug, please report it to the email adresse below. A procedure to reproduce the bug would be a great help! 9) Get in contact ----------------- Questions, bug reports, comments or laudation :-) to: the.defender@web.de June 2002 Andreas Schoesser

Normalizer plugin v. 0.2 (Normalizer plugin for PM123, 28/2/2002, Andreas Schoesser) Readme/What's new
Normalizer plugin v0.2 beta for PM123 ===================================== 1) Introduction --------------- This is a plugin for the mp3 player PM123 for OS/2. With this plugin installed, you can normalize the sound output of PM123. That is when playing mp3 files, the volume level of different songs is kept approximately equal. In order to do that, normal.dll reads the "normalizer id3 tag" of the currently playing file generated by normalizer.exe. Normalizer.exe is part of the normalizer package written for Linux by Chris Vaill. There's also an OS/2 port on Hobbes! Normalizer.exe computes the average volume level of each mp3 file and appends information the be read by the normalizer plugin. The advantage of normalizer.exe is, that the mp3 data itself isn't touched, so the normalizing speed is quite fast. So before the normalizer plugin can do anything with the mp3 files it is given, you first have to execute normalizer.exe on your mp3 collection once. After that step, you won't have to fiddle around with the volume slider any more if there's a loud or silent song to be played! :-) The normalizer plugin is freeware. 2) System requirements ---------------------- - OS/2 Warp 3/4 - The mp3 player PM123 1.1 Beta 3 or higher - The normalizer.exe from the normalizer package found on hobbes: http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/cgi-bin/h-search?key=normalize 3) Installation --------------- Unpack the zip-archive in a directory, then do the following: - The normalizer plugin comes with two .dll files: 1) normal.dll <- This does the actual work 2) normhelp.dll <- This is used only to pass some pointers to normal.dll Copy these two files into the ..\visplug directory of PM123 - Then open your currently used skinfile with a texteditor and append the following line 4=visplug/normhelp.dll,0,0,0,0 The trailing id (4) should be unique, so if there's another plugin using this id then alter it. - Start PM123 and open the configuration dialog - Chose the notebook page "plugins". In the section "visual plugins" you should now see a "normhelp.dll" entry. Go the the "filter plugin" section and press the "Add" button". - Chose "normal.dll" in the file dialog, press Ok. - Now you should be ready. You can select the new "normal.dll" entry and press "configure" to reveive information about the current adjustment. 4) Usage -------- As mentioned above, you first have to download the normalizer-package and execute normalize "normalize.exe" once on your mp3 files. To normalize a whole directory, simply execute "normalize.exe *.mp3" This will normalize all mp3's to a standard volume. The normalizer plugin will use the id3 tag generated by normalize.exe to recalculate the sample data in order to keep the volume level at an equal level. You HAVE to install both, normhelp.dll AND normal.dll. Otherwise you will receive an error message or PM123 might even crash (don't know exactly why THAT happens... we'll see!) 5) License ---------- normal.dll is freeware. The author is not responsible for any damage this program may cause. If you copy this package, always copy all files contained in the original archive! 6) Download ----------- You can download the newest version of normal.dll at - Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/) - My homepage (http://andreas.schoesser.org) -> Goto "Andi's Programming Projects" The normalizer.exe package is available here: - Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/) Search for "normalize-0-7-1.zip" or a higher version or use the following link: http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/cgi-bin/h-search?key=normalize Here you may download the mp3 player PM123: - http://www.sektori.com/pm123 7) History ---------- Version changes 0.1 beta - Initial release 0.2 beta - changed false installation instructions in this readme - fixed bug: PM123 crashed when loading a new skin file in case normhelp.dll is already loaded. 8) Comments & known bugs ------------------------ - The normalizer id3 tag is found by a simple pattern searching algorithm. Todo: Implement a decent id3 tag reading function. 9) Thanks! ---------- Thanx go to: - Chris Vaill for the normalizer package and for some enlightenments I got by reading his code. I used some code fragments of his plugin for XMMS :-) - Michael Such for porting normalizer.exe to OS/2 - All the freaks using OS/2 10) Get in contact ------------------ Questions, bug reports, comments or laudation :-) to: the.defender@web.de Feb 2002 Andreas Schoesser

Timer plugin v. 1.2 (Timer plugin for PM123, 12/2/2002, Andreas Schoesser) Readme/What's new
TIME! - timer plugin for PM123 (Version 1.2) ============================================ 1) Descrition ------------- With this DLL for the mp3 player PM123 you can turn off your ATX-computer after a certain time or after a certain number of songs automatically. This could be handy in some cases, especially if you want to listen to a few mp3 songs before going to sleep. With TIME, you don't have to get up again to turn off your computer manually! 2) Conditions ------------- You need the following components to use TIME.DLL: - ATX-Hardware - OS/2 Warp 4, FixPack >= 6 (for APM 1.2) - The program APM/2 by Roman Stangl. It's included in this package. APM is a shutdown tool, that is launched by TIME.DLL to turn off your computer. - PM123 >= 1.1 Beta 1 3) Installation --------------- Unpack the time.zip archive into the visplug directory of PM123 (well, at least the files "time.dll" and "shutdown.mp3" should be there) After that, you have to do the following steps: - Unzip APM.ZIP into a directory of your choice - Open your current skin file with a text editor and append the following line: 5=visplug/time.dll,0,0,0,0 The trailing number (ID) should be unique. That is if there is another plugin installed using this ID you have to alter it. - start PM123 - Right-click on the PM123 window to open the "properties" dialog - Choose the page "plugins" - Choose "time.dll" in the visual plugin section. (Well, time.dll isn't really visual, but this was the only way to do it :-) Press "Configure" - The time configuration dialog will pop up: - Enter the path to APM incl. all paramteres into the "APM/2 location" entry field. Example: If APM is located in C:\APM, then type: C:\APM\APM.EXE /poweroff - Confirm with "ok" 4) How to use ------------- In order to set the shutdown time, you have to call the properties dialog again and press the "configure" button for time.dll. There are 3 different ways of telling time.dll when to shut down the computer: a) You can shut down after a certain play time b) or after a certain number of songs played c) or after a certain idle time You can either use one of these methods or even all together if you like. To use an option, check the trailing checkbutton. Now let's look at the 3 possibilities in detail: a) You can configure a certain playing time by setting up the hour and minute values using the spin controls. When you press "Ok" time.dll will turn off the computer after the specified time. b) If you mark the checkbox for "Shutdown after x songs", time.dll will play exactly x songs and then turn off your computer. Just use the spin control to set up the number of songs. Use with care: If you set up a maximum of 5 songs and there are only 3 songs in the playlist, your computer will not be turned off. I always use PM123 in repeat mode when using this option, so the computer won't be running all night :-) c) This is useful when you want time.dll to shut down after finishing the playlist. Drag a few songs into the playlist and then enable this option. When the playlist has finished, PM123 is idle and time.dll will shut down after the configured idle time (30 seconds is a good value) Caution: PM123 also is idle BEFORE starting a playlist. So you should only activate this option after PM123 started playing or at least be quick in starting the playlist afterwards ;-) The "status" section in the dialog informs you about the currently remaining times. If you check the "Play shutdown.mp3" checkbox, the mp3 file "shutdown.mp3" located in the visplug directory of PM123 is played. By default, you hear an order of the Star Trek Voyager Doctor, but you can replace the mp3 if you like (maybe a good night message or someting). It shouldn't be longer than 10 seconds, though. Now, click "Ok" to save the configuration and hand it over to PM123. "Cancel" will restore the old configuration. 5) Version history ------------------ Version changes 1.1 - made plugin compatible to PM123 1.1 Beta 1 1.2 - redesigned configuration dialog - added "idle time" option - added "Play shutdowm.mp3" option 6) License ---------- Time.dll ist freeware. The author of this program is not responsible for any damage this program may cause. 7) Download ----------- You can download the newest version of time.dll at - My homepage (http://andreas.schoesser.org) -> Goto "Andi's Programming Projects" 8) ToDo ------- - Perhaps my own shutdown code, so that APM.EXE is no longer required. 9) Contact ---------- Questions, bug reports, feedback or laudation :-) to: the.defender@web.de February 2002 Andreas Schoesser

Module files decoder plugin v. 1.00 (Module files decoder plugin for PM123, 15/8/2001, Kevin Langman) Readme/What's new
MikMod Decoder Plugin (Beta) for PM123 This program allows PM123 to playback Module files of a variety of formats: 669,AMF,DSM,FAR,GDM,IMF,IT,MOD,MED,MTM,S3M,STX,ULT,UNI,XM and OKT. This plugin is based on the work done by the people working on the MikMod Library. Please goto the MikMod official home page for information on the MikMod Player and the MikMod library. http://mikmod.online.fr/index.html Please DO NOT contact the authors of the MikMod library with any questions or bug reports specific to this plugin. If you have any bugs to report please contact me at langman@earthling.net Note: This release is in BETA and it has NOT be extensively tested. What is a MOD file: ------------------- Mod files started out as Amiga music files. The Amiga had a built-in 4 channel audio processor. It was not long before someone used this feature to allow the Amiga to play music by playing audio files on all 4 channels at once. This was made possible my using a program called a tracker. These trackers produced files that contained the required wave data and some tracking information. These original music files were known as Module files (or MOD for short). After a while the PC was able to play these files by using software mixing and later there were even sound card that (finally) allowed for playback of more then one channel at once like the original Amiga did many years earlier. Fueled my the PC and Amiga DEMO scene the trackers became more powerful and today we have formats like IT that can mix more then 200 channels at once. Installation: ------------- 1. Copy the DPMikMod.dll file to a directory of your choice (I use the same directly where I have PM123 installed.) 2. Start PM123 3. Goto the PM123 properties window. 4. Click on the Plug-ins tab 5. In the Decoder Plugins section click the ADD button 6. Select the DPMikMod.dll file and click OK 7. Select DPMikMod.dll from the list box 8. Click on the Configure button 9. Setup the options to your liking Now your ready to start playing Module files. Requirements: ------------ OS: Warp 3/4, WSeb PM123 Beta 4.. It may or may not also work with later versions of PM123 but definitely does not work with earlier versions Version History: ---------------- 1.0 beta - First public release Known Problems: --------------- 1. The timer in PM123 does NOT display the time in seconds when playing MOD files as it does during MP3 playback. This is due to the design of PM123 and the nature of MOD files in general. When playing MOD files the timer represents the number of module patterns that have been played. 2. When adding new module files to the PM123 playlist while PM123 is playing a MOD file, the length and 'real' song title is not loaded from the file. This is due to the fact that the MikMod Library is unable to reliably process a second MOD file while MikMod is active. Any problems other then the one above should be reported to me at: langman@earhtling.net Where to Get MOD files: ----------------------- www.scene.org Contact the Author: ------------------- Kevin Langman E-Mail: langman@earthling.net Feel free to send me your comments.. I look forward to hearing from you. WWW: http://go.to/langman

Visualisation plugin v. 1.1 (Visualisation plugin for PM123, 15/11/2000, Andreas Schoesser) Readme/What's new
MetalTux, version 1.1 ===================== 1) Introduction --------------- MetalTux is a sound visualisation plugin for the OS/2 mp3 player PM123. It uses DIVE (Direct Video Extensions - The fast OS/2 graphic system) to display the Linux mascot Tux headbanging to the music you play. 2) System requirements ---------------------- You need the following components to run MetalTux: - OS/2 Warp 3/4 - The mp3-player PM123 - DIVE installed (comes with Warp4, with Warp3 you have to install it, first) 3) Installation --------------- Uncompress the file tux.zip into the PM123 subdirectory PM123_DIR\visplug (!! IMPORTANT !!) where PM123_DIR is the directory where pm123.exe is installed. There should be the following three files in the archive: - tux.dll the actual plugin - metaltux.pcx the Tux graphics - readme.txt the file you're reading After that, you have to perform the following steps: - start PM123 - Click on the PM123 window to open the "properties" dialog - Choose the page "plugins" - Press the "add" Button in the "visual plugin" section - Choose "..\visplug\tux.dll" in the file dialog. Press Ok. That's it. NOTE: Since PM123 1.1 Beta 2 seems to "forget" the plugins added by the configure dialog, here's a workaround for installing the plugin: Open the skin file you are using, for example "default.skn". Add the following line to the end of the file: 10=visplug/tux.dll,0,0,0,0 That should install the plugin, too, but it's not as comfortable as the dialog thing. I hope, this bug will be fixed by Samuel in the future... 4) How it works --------------- MetalTux is a visualisation plugin, that is, it analyzes the audio data received from the decoder. It separates the two channels left and right and performs a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) in order to compute the frequencies contained in the audio signal. Now if there are high amplitudes in the bass range, MetalTux bangs with it's head (right, if the right channel was loud or left if there were high amplitudes on the left channel). This makes the penguing bang, if the the bassdrum is played. The feet are animated after analyzing the treble of left and right channel. After that, MetalTux is blitted to the screen via DIVE. Btw Metal Tux is not a port of the Linux version, it just "ripps" :) the idea and the bitmaps, the coding was done by myself. 5) How to use ------------- In order to configure MetalTux, you have to call the properties dialog again and press the "configure" button for tux.dll Here, you can configure the sensivity of Tux (that is how he reacts to the music) and the Tux window position. Use the sliders for "bass" and "treble" to adjust the sensivity. A high sensivity means that the penguin reacts even on gentle tones where a low sensivity makes the penguin react only on strong tones. You can adjust the window position by hand: Use the spin buttons to do this. You can also move the window by using the right mouse button. Pressing the left button on the Tux window will bring up the PM123 window by the way. "Disable Metal Tux" will keep the DLL loaded, but no Tux is displayed. Useful when you temporarly need more CPU power. "Float on top" will keep the Tux window on top of other windows. Your configuration will be saved to disk if you press the "Ok" button. 6) License ---------- MetalTux ist freeware. The author of this program is not responsible for any damage, this program may cause. Thanks to Antti Takala for the idea and for the original Linux version of this plugin, and to Larry Ewing for the cute Tux logo :-). Thanks to Samuel Audet for his excellent mp3 player! Thanks to the people at comp.os.os2.programmer.misc for answering every single question. Thanks to Michael T. Duffy for his DIVE article at emd2.com and for some code snippets I "borrowed" from him. 7) Download ----------- You can download the newest version of metaltux.zip at - Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/) - My homepage (http://www.uni-karlsruhe.de/~uh45/) -> Goto "Andi's Programming Projects" Here you can find the original DiscoTux for Linux: - http://wmdiscotux.stc.cx/ Here you may download the mp3 player PM123: - http://www.sektori.com/pm123 9) History ---------- 1.0 - initial release 1.1 - Plugin now also works with PM123 1.1 beta 3 - Fixed bug in the plugin's thread logic - The plugin window now snaps in at desktop edges 10) Known bugs -------------- - Tux Plugin window still has a minimum size of 136x136 pixels. Seems to be a restriction of PM frame windows! :-? Any idea how to fix this?? 11) Get in contact ------------------ Questions, bug reports, comments or laudation :-) to: the.defender@web.de September 2000 Andreas Schoesser
