The podcasts panel now has easier to access filtering by podcast grouping (the grouping field in the subscription dialog). The feature has always been there but was previously buried in the header menu.

Secondly, "Unplayed" and "Feed" buttons will show show unplayed or all episodes only when viewing the episodes of a single subscription

Also the podcasts panel highlights the subscriptions that fail to update with a "!" alert by the subscription name

- you can now optionally permanently display the subscription folders in the subscriptions panel (as opposed to being a drop-down button to select a folder). Its useful if you are re-organising subscriptions using drag-drop
- also a couple of minor bug fixes

Support for tempo control has been asked a few times in context of podcasts (and audiobooks). There has been a tempo dsp plugin for a long time but to make it easier to access, i have added the following hotkeys to increment the tempo by +/- 10%

Player: Tempo Decrease
Player: Tempo Increase
Player: Tempo Reset

Also this update includes a header bar menu command that instructs MusicBee to only show downloaded files

this version adds support for a "% Played" field for the main panel that can be displayed in the podcasts or audiobooks tab only.
This is useful so you can quickly see how far each episode has been played. It resets to blank once playback has completed ie. wont show 100%, but you can easily tell those episodes because of "unplayed" icon wont be showing

What are the KEYS that make this happen? How do I enable this?

Look in Preferences > Hotkeys. You'll probably need to configure them.

Oh! Everything has to be configured. No defaults on this..

I am concerned if people mess up assigning these and if there is a Golden Standard or Set of Templates that people recommend / follow for MB keyboard short cuts?

I just assigned Ctrl + Shift + (Right/ Left / Down) for Tempo +10/-10/Reset.
