80w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer SubJunk has updated PS3 Media Server to version 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Windows, Linux and Mac which includes several bug fixes as detailed below.
To quote: Built from SVN r970. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet. No new features have been added since 1.50.0 Beta 1 but many bugs have been fixed.
Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12235 for more details
Updated binaries build script to include Linux support (thanks, happy.neko!)
Updated OS X MPlayer to include fontconfig support
Updated Bulgarian translation (thanks, JORDITO!)
Updated German translation (thanks, smo!)
Updated Dutch translation
Added full featured IP filter with support for wildcards and ranges
Improved network interface choosing algorithm now skips virtual interfaces
Updated libraries (configuration, jgoodies and slf4j)
Detect file system changes runtime (adding/removing folders/files).
Updated JRE auto-download from 6u27 to 7u1
Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
Renderer image improvements
Improvements to tab layouts
Maximum bandwidth setting works
Limit bandwidth to 110Mb/s by default which should solve a lot of "stuttering playback" reports
Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
Recognise forced subtitles (thanks, ExSport!)
Clarified English language labels
Updated MPlayer and MEncoder on Windows from Sherpya's old builds to SubJunk's new builds which fixes many playback issues, color-conversion bugs and more (but possibly has drawbacks for some files, too)
Main (Status) tab displays a large tick when it's connected to a renderer instead of a PS3 or warning image
Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.50 from 0.7.47

FYI if you're looking for something to bypass cinevia protection, these newer versions are no go for you - they've removed this experimental feature due to legal concerns. They did start looking at this, but i don't think it ever ended up in the actual releases (it was in subversion at some point, but they've since removed it). As per their forum: ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7220&start=130#p58376
I'm not interested in bypassing cinevia, but thought others might be.
