Version 1.09 Release Notes

Player Runtime 1.09 is included with Luminous OPEN 1.1. We weren't quite finished with Player 1.1 by their deadline so we created a special version that included most of the 1.1 features. The free updater that converts prior versions of Player Runtime to 1.1 should work with 1.09.
