If performing an upgrade from a previous version of EPG123, it is only necessary to run the new setup file or copy over the old files with the contents of the portable zip file. No further action is required.

First and foremost, the EPG123 executable files and installer/uninstaller are now signed. Hopefully this will be the start of a better relationship between EPG123 and some AV/Firewall packages out there. The more EPG123 is installed starting from this version, the higher my reputation score will be and the less false malware detections there will be.
Secondly, for a little background, I had a user that was having problems with updates and the WMC database. Turns out the machine only had 3GB RAM and would run out of memory when EPG123 tried to save the compressed cache file. This is a corner case whereas there is small memory, a large number of stations and days to download, and no cached files so everything had to be downloaded on every update, and trying to compress all the downloaded files into the cache file. I did a lot of code changes to try and reduce the memory footprint of EPG123 but it didn’t reduce it as much as I wanted. EPG123 will now check to see how much physical RAM is available before saving the cache file. If the physical memory available is less than 1GB, then EPG123 will not compress the file.
Lastly, for this release and possibly all future releases, I do not have a portable version available. This is partly due to my automated scripts with code signing doesn’t lend itself to this, but also because I would prefer the setup file be used in order to properly get everything setup correctly with shortcuts, the tray notification tool, and whatnot.
