2006/06/01 SubRip 1.50 Beta 3a incl. sources available. LRN of TeMa=) team added experimental 3GPP Timed Text (*.ttxt) support (http://gpac.sourceforge.net/auth_text.php), without color support though.
2006/01/05 SubRip 1.50 Beta 3 and sources available. Moved to Delphi 2005 (but Delphi 7 is still supported). Added whole words formatting. Added support for text formatting in subtitle window. Lots of other GUI changes. Speedup in processing videos when the frames are empty. Experimental Spanish language correction. (Beta 1) Fixed the detached chars problem. Fixed UniCode support to preview CodePage changes. Other bugfixes. Some changes in the video GUI. (Beta 2). Fixed saving bug for split subtitles. Fixed video no longer working bug. Added a progress bar for loading char matrices. Updated ortography dictionaries to UniCode. (Beta 3).
Feedback and comments are welcome in the SubRip beta thread on the Doom9 forum, especially since new bugs may have been introduced. We also need help updating the languages to reflect the changes in the GUI.
I've also posted my char matrix. It works for some 90% of the DVDs I've seen. Be sure to set the OCR sensitivity high (1000) when using it. See additional instructions in my post on the Doom9 forum.

2005/10/26 SubRip 1.40 Beta 3 and sources available. Large GUI overhaul and bugfixes. Implemented a way to fill a char matrix with entire UniCode subranges. Implemented opening bitmap sequences that DVDSupDecode outputs from converting DVB-T broadcasts saved as .sup by ProjectX. Made Modify and Delete work faster for characters in the Char Matrix (Beta 1). Fixed a few bugs and added an option to automatically fill the best guess. Updated with new Portuguese language by Vítor Vieira. (Beta 2). Added support for negative timestamps and using the file offsets from .idx files, and fixed a few bugs. (Beta 3).

2005/08/18 SubRip 1.30 Beta 11 and sources available. Introduced UniCode support (Beta 1) and fixed a few bugs (Beta 2). Fixed AviSynth support (Beta 3). Fixed old character matrix import (Beta 4). Fixed "black on black" bug and added experimental support for delays in .idx files (Beta 5). Fixed always saving as UniCode bug and made a small change in the video GUI (Beta 6). Changed the GUI and the detection algorithm, introduced text fattening (Beta 7). Improved the detection algorithm; fixed a bug in the disjoint characters routine; fixed DVD Maestro saving bug (Beta 8). Fixed video not displaying, added UniCode font support, fixed many other bugs (Beta 9). Added a font button in the subtitle window and fixed a few bugs (Beta 10). Fixed some GUI bugs, updated with new French language file by Kurtnoise (Beta 11).
Bear in mind that only very few players support UniCode subtitles (vsFilter UniCode is the best choice). If the correct CodePage is selected in "General options", subtitles that use the Latin alphabet and its extensions can be safely saved as ANSI and viewed on current video players using the correct CharSet.

2005/06/07 A guide for ripping subtitles from video files is now available.
Feedback and comments are welcome in the SubRip beta thread on the Doom9 forum.
2005/05/28 SubRip 1.20 Final and sources available.

New features:
  • support for extracting subtitles from video files
  • support for saving recognized subtitles as bitmaps for later removal
  • "extend left and right" for disjoint characters
  • "best guess so far" functionality
  • fill character matrix from a manually matched font
  • Zuggy has solved the P4 crash problem.
2005/04/27 ai4spam added support for ripping subs out of avi files that contain them hardsubbed - version 1.20 beta (Menu - File - Open Hard Subbed Video Files). You can download it below, sources will be uploaded later... Remember, this version still does not fix the crash by launch on some P4 HT machines in XP, I promise to fix it till May and continue to develop the DVD part (mpucoder gives me several lessons :-).
2003/10/11 I had to delete my mailbox due to thousands of spams. Still you can reach me by leaving "zuggy" PM at Doom9's Forum.
