Version: The Windows and Mac OS X versions are 1.70.1 rather than 1.70.0 due to a packaging issue spotted during release. There is no functional difference between 1.70.0 and 1.70.1.
Issues with the sample PMS.conf file bundled with PMS 1.53.0 to 1.60.0:
Prior to this release, the sample PMS.conf bundled with PMS since 1.53.0 (June 2012) set values different to the built-in defaults. If you created a PMS.conf by copying one of these sample files to your profile directory, it should be removed and settings should be re-entered and saved in the GUI.
Changes to default settings:
Two default settings have been changed in this release: the default web video engine (FFmpeg Web Video) and the default file sort order (alphanumeric). As a result of these changes, you are advised to back up and remove your old PMS.conf and re-enter and save your settings (if any) in the GUI.

There was (sort of) but it was removed to prevent them getting their butts sued!
If you get the source code from the repository at a certain revision you might find it - but you'll then need to build it too

Personally - i've NEVER had a problem with Cinavia - all my videos play perfectly.
