24MCONSUMER

·      Media Player Full Screen playback breaks on second played clip

Feature issue:

The lower portion of the screen will not render video properly after the first video clip when playing a playlist containing more than one video with full screen enabled.

Improvement:

Windows Media Player is now updated, and the issue is corrected.

BROWSING

·      FTP User/Password authentication default overrides user “anon”

Feature issue:

When connecting to a FTP server, the FTP API InternetOpen() always passes username=anon and [email protected], even if the application passes username and passwd to the API.

Improvement:

InternetOpen now checks if a user name or password is provided. If both are blank, then default value is used. Note that this improvement does not affect Pocket Internet Explorer FTP authentication behavior.

·      Pocket Internet Explorer sometimes does not send Submit button Name/value information

Feature issue:

When an HTML FORM contains multiple SUBMIT buttons with the same NAME (for example, control collection), none of the button information is sent to the server computer when the user selects one of the SUBMIT buttons.

Improvement:

SUBMIT buttons can now be recognized as control collections (like BUTTON and RADIO already are) and submit the information of the SUBMIT button that the user interacted with.

·      Pocket Internet Explorer is slow to load a pages with JScript

Feature Issue:

Pocket Internet Explorer takes significantly more time to load pages containing JScript as compared to Pocket PC 2000. It can take over ten seconds for a large JScript block to display what should take less than one second.

Improvement:

JScript loading is now significantly faster.

COREAPPS

·      IMAP4 service stops responding when attempting to download e-mail with certain attachments

Feature issue:

IMAP4 service will stop responding while retrieving messages if any message has a specific type of attached file.

Improvement:

File attachments that were previously affected will now successfully download to the device.

SHELL

·      Advanced VPN Settings will not save in Pocket PC 2002

Feature issue:

Connection Manager Advanced VPN settings will not save. This prevents use of “Use specific IP address” and other advanced VPN settings.

Improvement:

Advanced VPN settings can now be saved as expected.

·      System .WAV sound files have extra noise at the end

Feature Issue:

Copyright and other text information embedded at the end of .wav files are played as sound. This causes extra noise at the end of each sound file (except Alarm2.wav).

Improvement:

Copyright information was removed from .wav files. 

SYNC

·      Calling IpReleaseAddress() causes a multi-homed Pocket PC 2002 device to stop responding

Feature issue:

The IpReleaseAddress() IPHLPAPI function may cause a Pocket PC 2002 device to stop responding if the device has two network adapters attached at the time (dial-up, GPRS, CF or PCMCIA network card, ActiveSync connection, and so on).

Improvement:

IpReleaseAddress() now properly handles multiple IP connections.

·      Server Sync cannot synchronize if a specific meeting is in Inbox or Calendar

Feature Issue:

Some very rare types of meeting requests can cause Server ActiveSync to fail synchronizing any data until the meeting request is deleted. The solution is to manually identify the meeting request and manually delete it, to restore the ability to synchronize.

Improvement:

Server ActiveSync on the device now shows a warning identifying the specific meeting, and does not synchronize this type of meeting request.

·      ”Trouble Connecting” error appears even when a user wants to end a connection

Feature issue:

Manually ending the connection or pressing the Power button to suspend the device while the connection is in use causes the  “Trouble connecting” error to appear.

Improvement:

The “Trouble Connecting” error is now suppressed when a user or an application ends the connection, or when a device suspend request signals a connection shutdown.

Appendix B: Previous Improvements

Pocket PC 2002 updates are cumulative. Installing the latest EUU update automatically installs all previously released EUU improvement updates. Some devices may have some or all of these improvements already in ROM (depending on the manufacturer and the date).
