DWJukebox 3.4 Released

DWJukebox 3.4 has been released.  This version includes discrete command buttons (On/Off commands as opposed to simple toggles) for most toggleable features for ease of use with remote controls.  In addition, a new User Timers feature has been added for skins; look for upcoming blog articles to describe how this new feature works.  In addition, new page change animations are available, and animation in general has been improved and is less likely to cause song stutters.  Finally, PNG is now supported in both skins and the Slide Show screensaver.
