Movie Explorer 1.7.5: TV Show Add-on activation fix

Activation fix

Version 1.7.5 of Movie Explorer fixes an activation problem with the TV Shows Add-on. This problem was caused by a small change on how Apple generates so called 'receipt' files. A receipt file is part of the application bundle and contains purchase data specific to the local App Store account. This file is generated when you download an app from the Mac App Store, and is updated when you perform an in-app purchase. On startup, Movie Exlorer checks the receipt file to determine if the TV Shows Add-on has been purchased. The change made by Apple is the addition of a cancellation date to the receipt file. A misinterpretation of this date in the previous version of Movie Explorer resulted in not showing the TV Shows Add-on. This has been fixed in this new release.

Other changes
  • The view settings are extended with a new setting 'Show numeric ratings'. When enabled, numeric rating values are displayed under the thumbnails, instead of the usual stars.
  • Disabling the usage of a second localization language was ignored by the scan module in the previous version, resulting in several French media descriptions, if the first set language didn't have this data.

Movie Explorer 1.7.5

Movie Explorer 1.7.5 is compatible with OS X 10.11 or later. The previous version of Movie Explorer remains downloadable on the Mac App Store for users with older OS X versions. If you encounter any problems with this release then please contact us.
