The Photo Reactor BETA is a full UNICODE build of PHOTO REACTOR with the most recent code base.This version is based on 1.8.1 code and there were many code changes in order to be compiled as UNICODEUNICODE version allows for natural use of UNICODE characters in naming such as Russian, Japanese etc…This process require a lot of changes in the code. It is usually straightforward and many changes are being done automatically by the tools we build to help us with the process, but with such as extensive code as Photo Reactor, there may be areas of the code with potential issue that we didn’t catch.Therefore we released the latest version as BETA until we are sure everything is translated from 1.8.1 correctly.If you can, try to use the beta version and let us know if there are any issues, so we can go forward with this version.You can always go back to 1.8.1 if things don’t go well. The files between non-unicode and unicode are interchangeable, but:•if you name a file in the UNICODE version with extended character set (ex, Japanese) you will not be able to load it in non-unicode 1.8.1 version as the non-unicode version will not be able to read the file name correctly. If you use english for naming, then everything is fine.•Script Language will remain non-unicode in both version for compatibility reasons for now as we use Scintilla library that is not unicode. All the source comments in the script need to be in english.Updates (updates to BETA are posted without increasing version number):27/04/2020 Photo Reactor and Reactor Player BETA updated25/04/2020 uploaded first versions
