Here's a quick sneak peak of one feature in the upcoming release.  More soon, and the Beta starts next month. This optional calendar display is atop the main collection listing.

I see the 4K symbol and I know people will be excited about that.

But what is the calendar actually good for?

Woohoo... New Beta next month! Merry Christmas to us! I was thinking to myself last week I had a feeling you were going to try for a Christmas release.

This preview pic doesn't speak to me much... As I don't do much with pre-releases... but I am sure it thrilled many people.

As always... Thanks Ken!

Many of the changes coming in the next release are not graphical in nature.  e.g. Atmos support is probably higher on many users list than the calendar view, but it doesn't make for much of a screenshot.

Depending on how the calendar works, it might be something I would use.  I often see trailers for films I want to see, just not in theaters, and then forget about them once the Blu-ray comes out.  If I could add the title to the list and it would automatically tell me once the title has a release date, I would use it.

If you're using Tracker for this, then they will appear in the calendar when they have a release date.

Understood and very true. I can't wait for more tidbits of information.

DVD Profiler uses the user's regional settings for calendar display rules.  See the calendar drop-down in the personalize window, for example.

Haven't seen any entry in the Developer Forum, so I assume the API changes will be relatively minor and downward compatible as usual? I feel badly that I haven't fully utilized your last set of features, but I have plugins in process that will attempt to, if I live long enough ... 
Thanks for your support.

There are changes to support the new data, but nothing too ground shaking. And yes, all backwards compatible afaik.

What, exactly, is 'Tracker'?

Hmm, hopefully we have an option to use the official logo.

I started with that one, and added the gold/black 4K logo afterwards. I'll see about making them switchable.  Frankly the naming schemes around 4K / Ultra HD / HDR / etc. are not incredibly well thought out imo.  The discs themselves most commonly indicate "4K ULTRA HD" in silver on black, and it seems the retailers prefer "4K".  Of course that has it's own issue due to "4K mastered Blu-ray".

How about making it user selectable, similar to custom media type..  Use the Standard or allow the End User to choose an image of his choice/creation...
