Gnome Subtitles 1.1 is out!

I'm proud to announce the immediate availability of version 1.1, a release which features the amazing work of two important contributors: Arx Cruz and Valmir Sena. This includes:

  • New feature for quickly setting times with a single button: pressing sets the start time, releasing sets the end time, then moves to the next subtitle
  • Periodically backup subtitle files, configurable in the preferences
  • New features for video seeking and subtitle selection:
    • Video->Loop Selection - loop the video playback to the selected subtitles
    • Video->Seek to Selection - seek the video to the selected subtitle
    • Video->Select Nearest Subtitle - select the subtitle for the video position
    • Video->Auto Select Subtitle - auto select subtitles as the video is playing
  • Changes in the Timings Synchronize dialog:
    • Fixed a bug using the Synchronize All Subtitles option
    • Activating a sync point now seeks to its new time instead of the old one
  • Fixed a bug drag-and-dropping files with spaces in their path
  • Use ISO-8859-1 as the fallback and default encoding in the File Open list
