TVSuite V6 - 22.214.171.1241a ( Released 2020-08-27)
[Fix] Version check: Automatic download could stall / hang after download completes
1. This version now includes both 32- and 64-bit H264 and HEVC encoders. When you use the default software encoder the correct encoder is selected for your system. To use the existing 32-bit encoders select "Classic" for the encoder type in output profile. The 64-bit encoders provide access to more memory and work better on systems with more than 8 cores/threads than the 32-bit encoders especially with 4K material. Otherwise, the 32-bit and 64-bit encoders run at about the same speed.
2. High speed playback is now available using the K (slower) and L (faster) keys. Pressing each key speeds up playback by a factor of 2.0x. You can re-assign the keys using Tools>Options>Short cuts. They can also be assigned to one of the custom buttons. Starting with build 820, pitch corrected audio can be heard between speeds of 0.5x and 4.0x.
3. Help>Display keyboard shortcuts now shows you your custom keyboard shortcuts rather than the system default ones. You can also re-assign just about all keys including the ones used to set the thumbnail interval and select a particular thumbnail.
4. The thumbnail shift and ctrl options added in build 818 have been changed. When you click on thumbnail with the shift key pressed a sub-menu now pops up where you can select if the selected thumbnail should be moved to the leftmost position or rightmost. See this post for more info.

[Fix] H.264: Elementary stream muxing of 59.94 fps video triggers sync errors.
[Fix] HEVC: If max POCLsb is 65535 and GOP ends with a POC Lsb near 65535, could get memory error on next GOP.
[Fix] HEVC: Unable to open a file which has complex st_ref_pic_marking in the SPS.
[Fix] HEVC: Unable to open file due to parsing error in st_ref_pic_set read routine.
