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.
