New GBPVR revision v0.20

Posted on 24 August 2004 by

I’m not sure how I missed this announcement from Friday, but found it via thanks to lowbrow.

GBPVR has been updated to version .20

You can read more about it in sub’s forum post or read more for a copy of the change log.

I’ve just uploaded the next release. You can download it from here (gbpvr download)

There isn’t really any new big flashy features in this release. Just lots of small fixes and tweaks. There is also the basis for multi-language support, which will please a few of our european friends.

You can just install this release over the last release, and it will retain most of your settings.
