v1.0.2 build 236
    + Added "Enable/disable" to the playlist's context menu.
    + Added icon to the statusbar.  Single-clicking on it will toggle between a red
      icon ( enabled) and a grey icon ( disabled).  Right-clicking it will
      bring up the same menu as above.
    + Added an option for a configurable number of seconds to rewind when resuming from
      a pause state.  Leave it set at zero (0) to turn it off.  [Thanks, brotherS]

v1.0.2 build 220

    * The "Love Track" button is now an option under the Options, dialog.
      [Thanks, Deozaan]
    ! Fixed Trout's alt-tab icon to use the proper size.  [Thanks, lanux128]
    ! Fixed (hopefully) the tracks-playing-out-of-order issue.  [Thanks, drugwash]
    ! Fixed a tray icon issue where it wouldn't show if the user didn't have "Always show
      tray icon" checked but DID have "Minimize to tray on startup" checked.  [Thanks, Deozaan]

v1.0.2 build 211
    + Made it so the numpad's delete key will work like the regular delete key.  [Thanks, mouser]
    + Added handling for media keys on Logitech keyboards (Play/pause, Stop, Next,
      Prev, Vol up/down).  [Thanks, mouser]

      list.  [Thanks, daonlyfreez]
    + Added "Show toaster popup" as a hotkeyable item.  [Thanks, k3ph]
    * Changed the "Explore here" menu option to "Open file location".  [Thanks, alooper21]

v1.0.2 build 192
    * The default 'Explore here' option (Windows Explorer) should now highlight the selected
      file.  [Thanks, app103]
    ! Fixed 'Remove track after playback' functionality broken in build 186.  [Thanks, app103]
    ! Fixed sizing issue on startup.  [Thanks, brotherS]

v1.0.2 build 188
    + All Play Modes are now hotkeyable items.  [Thanks, genmce]
    ! Trout will now remember if it was maximized and will properly set itself on startup.
      [Thanks, Hezzu]

v1.0.2 build 186
    * Search/jump now highlights the top row automatically.  [Thanks, hezzu]
    * 'Resume playback on start' option now remembers play/pause state.  [Thanks, brotherS]

v1.0.2 build 178
    + Added two checkboxes to the Options, Toaster tab:
      1) Enable toaster popup.
      2) Do not show toaster popup while main window is active.
    * Improved the seek and volume bars:
      1) A single mousedown session cannot affect both controls.  [Thanks, brotherS & SoggyDog]
      2) Letting go of the left mouse button outside of the seekbars will now work.  This should
         allow for dragging the seekbar all the way back to the start of the song or all the way
         to the end of a song.  [Thanks, SoggyDog]
    * Clicking on the toaster popup will keep it open as long as it's the active window.

v1.0.2 build 172
    + Added a play button to the "Play track/beep between tracks" option so you can preview the
      chosen sound file.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    + Added a checkbox on the Options form to enable/disable the "Play track/beep between tracks"
      function.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    + Added another hidden config.ini setting under Settings: Update_Method=zip
      Setting this will allow the DcUpdater app to work with Trout's portable zip file as opposed
      to the installer.

v1.0.2 build 153
    + New option under Options, General.  You can now set how the listview behaves when dropping
      files on it (or the minibars).  Choices are:
      - Never clear the existing playlist (Default/current way)
      - Always clear the existing playlist
      - Always ask me what to do
      [Thanks, mouser]
    + Created a new "List" menu entry and moved the "Remove track after playback" option to it.
    + Added a "Play track/beep between tracks" options.  This is mainly for listening to audio
      books so you can be alerted to chapter changes, etc.  You set the options under Options,
      General and toggle the functionality using the List menu entry. [Thanks, brotherS & mouser]
    ! Fixed a seeking issue where Trout wouldn't behave properly if the elapsed time was smaller
      than the user-set seek interval.  This also cropped up if the remaining time was less than
      the seek interval.  [Thanks, brotherS]

v1.0.2 build 149
    + Added a "Remove track after playback" option to the View menu.  This will make Trout act
      in a sort of queue mode.  [Thanks, app103]
    + Added "love" functionality to the minibars.  Currently, this will take you
      directly to the track's page on so you can mark it as loved.  Future plans will
      be to make this button "love" a track automatically.  [Thanks, app103]
    ! The $time_r/$time_e tokens now update in realtime.  Putting those tokens in the titlebar
      string may result in flickering.  [Thanks, brotherS]

v1.0.2 build 146
    + Another hidden config.ini setting: WinampAPI_Titlebar_Fix=1
      What this does is add a " - Winamp" to the titlebar text.  The reason is that some WinampAPI
      driven front-ends will actually crash if that text isn't there...even though they eventually
      strip it for display.  The mind boggles.  [Thanks, hollow87 & app103]
    + Column orders are now saved.  [Thanks, app103]
    ! Removing files from the listview should be much quicker (back to the way it used to be).

v1.0.2 build 129
    + Added a hidden setting for more aggressive listview refreshing.  If you're
      experiencing listview painting issues, add the following entry to the Settings
      section of your config.ini:  Force_Listview_Refresh=1
      [Thanks, daonlyfreez]
    + Added an option to specify the seek jump interval in seconds.  Default is a jump of
      one second.  Tools, Options, Miscellaneous section.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    * The statusbar track times (TE: & TR:) now update while a track is paused.  [Thanks, brotherS]
    ! Fixed 'Remove dupes' and 'Remove dead entries' broken in build 119.
    ! Fixed the list search broken in build 119.

v1.0.2 build 119
    + Made the following keys available for hotkeys: - = [ ] \ ; ' , . /
    + Added a "Preserve file modification time when saving tags" options under Tools, Options,
      General.  [Thanks, badmojo]
    * More Win9x/ME compatibility fixes.
        1) Font selection size should now work properly.
        2) Hotkeys should work now.  However, mouse-button hotkeys under 9x are sketchy at best.
        3) Text display bits should be more compatible with themed progress bars.
    * Added 'Options' back to the tray menu.  [Thanks, lanux128]

v1.0.2 build 106
    + Added "Explore here" option to the Edit/context menu.  [Thanks, apfel]
    + Added an option for specifying a custom file manager in regards to the 'Explore here'
      feature.  It's under the Tools, Options, General tab.  You use the $file_p token for
      the path.  I use Altap Salamander as my file manager of choice so I have the
      following specified:
      C:\apps\file\Salamander\salamand.exe -L "$file_p"
      This would open Altap Salamander with the left pane at the path of the currently
      focused song.  If a custom file manager is not specified, the path is simply "run"
      and Windows Explorer will most likely display (unless you have some other file manager
      specified as default on your system).
    * Cut the tray menu back down the basics as it was getting out of hand.

v1.0.2 build 103
    + Added website button to the About dialog.  [Thanks, Darin]
    + Playlist block selections are now movable via ctrl-up and ctrl-down.  [Thanks, majkinetor]
    + Added the following as hotkeyable items: Add files, Add folders, Load playlist,
      and Add URL.  [Thank, tomos]
    + Added DonationCoder DcUpdater compatibility.  [Thanks, lanux128]
        If you would like to use this functionality, do the following:
        1) Download and install mouser's DcUpdate application from here:
        2) Download this and extract dcuhelper.exe to your Trout folder:
        3) You will now see the new option under the Help menu.
    * Updated to latest BASS format plugins.
    * Updated to latest BASS library.  [Thanks, k3ph] 
    ! Added code to prevent duplication of hotkeys.  [Thanks, SoggyDog]

v1.0.2 build 91
    + Added code to support Win9x/ME systems.  Thanks to Drugwash and app103 for testing.
       1) Win9x/ME users will get the older slider controls for volume and seekbars.
       2) Tag editing has been disabled under Win9x/ME.
       3) for CDs appears to work.
       4) appears to work as well.
       5) Copy-to-clipboard functions do not copy in unicode.
    ! MIDI soundfont playback fix.
    * Fixed text display for 120 DPI systems.  Hopefully.  (Thanks, majkinetor)

v1.0.2 build 64
    + Added "/clipboard" as a commandline parameter.
    * AudioGenie library update to v1.0.5.2.
    ! Further parsing improvements/fixes.
    ! Fixed a nasty "remember position and auto-play" issue.  [Thanks, ChalamiuS]

    + Added 'Scroll left' and 'Scroll right' as hotkeyable actions.  [Thanks, tomos]
    + Added 'Clear playlist', 'Remove duplicates', & 'Remove dead entries' as hotkeyable
    + New option: 'Remember last playback position & auto-play on start'.  [Thanks, Rhys]
    * Moved the 'Fonts & Colors' options to its own tab.

v1.0.2 build 45
    + Added 'Remove duplicates' and 'Remove dead entries' to the Edit menu.  [Thanks, app103]
    * Tag edit GUI doesn't display the missing tag string in the edit fields.  [Thanks, app103]
    * Made the "Update tags" button default now so you can simply press 'Enter' when
      you're done editing tags.
    * All data should now be properly handled in utf-8 format.
    * Edit, Copy path/URL should now copy in unicode.

v1.0.2 build 38
    + Added a entry to the edit/context menu.  You can go directly
      to the artist/album/title on's website.  [Thanks, app103]
    + Added the Edit menu to the minibar's menu.
    ! Further fixes to the submit checks.  [Thanks, app103]
    * Changed up the 'Minimize to tray on startup' routine to be more
      reliable.  [Thanks, app103]

v1.0.2 build 6
    * Fixed volume control issues introduced when I did the listview response

v1.0.2 build 4
    + Added 'Minimize on startup' to the Options dialog.  [Thanks, app103]

    * Fixed sending when artist/title tags are missing.  [Thanks, app103]

v1.0.2 build 3
    * Fixed the "Select all" function in the edit menu.  [Thanks, nogojoe]

v1.0.2 build 1
    + Added basic support. Trout's support of is limited to the
          1) A track must be longer than thirty seconds to be considered for submittal.
          2) Artist and title tags MUST be present.
          3) "Now playing" information will be sent ten seconds into track playback.
          4) For a track to be "submitted", it must have played at least 240 seconds
             OR half its track length.
          5) Trout does NO caching of tracks.  It's pretty doubtful I will add this
             capability in the future unless there is some huge need for it.
          See the following URL for more details:
    + Mousewheel over the main window's volume control now changes the volume.
    * Re-arranged the Edit menu a bit.  There is now a "Selection" entry with several
      sub-entries.  'Invert selection', 'Remove from list', and 'Rescan tags' have been
      moved to this submenu.  There is also a new entry that will allow you to delete
      the selection to the Recycle Bin.  If a file can't be deleted to the bin, you will
      be warned of such and allowed the option of deleting the file directly.
    * Tried to improve the responsiveness of the listview when switching tracks by

      resolutions.  [Thanks, Controller]
    ! Tray menu "Stop" action didn't function properly.
    ! Clicking cancel on colour dialog would improperly reset the control.  [Thanks,

      to highlight files and quickly rescan their tags.  [Thanks, tomos]

v1.0.1 build 80
    + Added "Rescan tags of selected files" to the edit menu.
    + Added BASIC tag editing capabilities to Trout.  There are some caveats.
      You can only edit one file at a time.  By default, the following
      tag types will be written to the following file types:

      aac   ID3v2 tags

      ape   APEv2 tags
      flac  Vorbis comments

      mp4   Not implemented yet

      tracks in the playlist as well as whatever row is focused e.g. 2/12.     

v1.0.1 build 79

      dynamically for any number of & letter of CDROM drives.  [Thanks, nogojoe]

    * Changed the parsing routine to handle CDs that return multiple
      matches. [Thanks, nogojoe]

v1.0.1 build 73
    + Added option for a custom string display when tags are missing.  The
      default string is "<missing>" but you can change it to whatever you'd
      like.  Tools, Options, General, Tags section. [Thanks, app103]

    + Added much more comprehensive error-checking and user notification to the
      CD play and routines.

AuthorJody Holmes (Skwire)

My main audio player for many years has been, and will remain, foobar but there are some times when I just want a simple "load'n'play" type of player.  An application that comes very close is Billy.  It's a FANTASTIC little app that fits in with my preference in software...standard controls, no skins, etc.  However, it only supports MP3, WAV, OGG, & FLAC and it also doesn't display tags.  My audio collection comprises many more formats than that and I tag files religiously.  So, with that in mind, I've always wanted to write my own simple player.  A good friend and I have wrapped the BASS audio engine in AutoHotkey and I've written a player (in AutoHotkey as well) called Trout.

very nice  :up: :up:

I will cross my fingers because I am waiting for something to replace Apollo player (no longer developped). for a long time.

Apollo is another fantastic player that I've used in the past.  About the only thing that it couldn't do was display Japanese characters properly for me.  Trout isn't really meant to compete with any of these big guns.  That being said, may I ask what you might expect from Trout that Apollo currently doesn't have/do?

Excellent! I was wondering what happened with the project :)
