    • Fixed an issue where once sorted, playlists could be unsorted temporarily, but would revert back to the last sorted state when re-loaded.
    • Fixed an issue where playback position would be tracked incorrectly when playing audio files encoded at a different sample-rate than that of the current Output device
    • Fixed an error of omission which prevented AudioCodex from adding FLAC-encoded files to playlists.
