New ProppFrexx Statistics application added
This is an extra statistics and analytics application, which allows extensive data mining based on all your historic play out data. It includes a pivot and chart grid as well as a table based lookup.
In order to use this feature, make sure you enabled the 'Keep Global Statistic Log' in the general settings and have used the system for a decent time.
If checked a daily .stat log file is written to a global 'Stat File Path', which enables internal global play out reports and statistics. The 'Stat File Path' is on the same folder level as the global 'Log File Path' except it uses the 'stat' sub-folder. You can now use the new ProppFrexx Statistics application to analyze these log files.
There are two views available (after you selected the stat folder containing all your .stat files to analyze):
1a) a Pivot Grid with a Chat View:
This example uses a 'Bar' chart and a Pivot grid which groups track 'Duration' by 'Year, Month and Hour' on the rows and by 'Entry Type' in the columns.
1b) a Pivot Grid with a Chat View:
This example uses a 'ManhattenBar' chart and a Pivot grid which groups track 'Duration' by 'Year, Month and Hour' on the rows and by 'Genre' in the columns.
As you can see the Pivot grid allows freely configurable analytics all off your play out data!
2) a Table Grid which allows quick filtering and lookup of all your data, e.g. to exactly find out when certain tracks or group of tracks have been played. Also fully customizable.

'Play Now' and AutoWatch option added to Trackboard
A new context menu item 'Play Now' was added to the Trackboard (Ctrl+F12 or Alt+F12), which allows you to trigger the currently selected trackboard track(s) to be played in the Overlay Player. Either soft (after a currently playing playlist track has finished) or immediate.

Furthermore the Trackboard presets 2,3,4 and 5 do now support an 'AutoWatch' option.
Meaning, if enabled and you are e.g. using a folder based preset, the trackboard view will automatically refresh in case a new files is added in the background to this folder. This allows much better integration for multi-user studios and e.g. breaking news support.

TalkUser Intro and Outro tracks added
The TalkUser function now got an optional Intro and Outro track.
If specified, first the Intro will be played (after which the Master Fader might be attenuated), then the already existing Soundbed would be played (as before in looped mode) and finally, when you deactivate the TalkUser function, an optional Outro track will be played.

A v4.0.3.10 rebuild was needed, as a UI lib was missing in the above build which was needed for the new statistics application.
It is now included - that's it about this rebuild ;-)

Sorry for that mess. But it now should all work fine again...
