Nimi Places 20140511 released

Nimi Places 20140511 improves files thumbnailing and those internal management.

Today we release new­est version of Nimi Places 20140511 with revised thumbnails library.

Most important­ly system icon resolver was replaced with internal one — meaning that retrieving icons ​for executables, shortcuts, file types etc. is now handled by applica­tion itself (with minimal use of system API ​for process­ing (access­ing) resources).

Secondly, instead of just us­ing extension icon ​for thumbnail­able types that failed to have their repr­esenta­tion generat­ed — those are now actu­ally shar­ed. This reduces workload requir­ed ​for those process­ing as well as memory use.

Thirdly, multi­media front end was further revised — resolving multi­ple minor issues ​and most noticeably improving internal video thumbnailer.

As this version is build direct­ly from develop­ment branch — changes overlap­ping with those from recent public builds [that were not built from that one] were not includ­ed ​in build changelog.
