To quote: This is the last release (by me) before setting the 3.0 stamp. Hopefully there are no serious issues lurking and if so I hope to be able to release 3.0 in a couple of days.

I know there is still alot of bugs (although not as many as I would expect, to be honest) to be squashed and a lot more features to be implemented.

On top of this I have a lot more ideas in my head for stuff I would like to add. But as always, time is a limiting factor.

A list of changes since 2.99.401 release:

  • Popup menu redesigned a bit
  • Add support for Windows 1251 codepage
  • upnp: Make sure that we really find subtitles when doing a blind probe. This bug has caused problems for some people making some video not start at all.
  • Make it possible to enter credentials in the auth popup that is not saved to disk
  • Add support for passing mimetypes internally. This speed up media loading and playback start.
  • PS3: Update XMB icon (better centered)
  • Make SRT subtitle discovery better
  • Add support for setting subtitle output delay
  • Add seek-by-thumbnail in the command popup menu (looks very bad on PS3 at the moment though)
  • ui: Redesign the auth popup
  • Improve the setting views
  • PS3: Add support for BD remote
  • Add support for cycling between audio and subtitle tracks using a single button
  • Make presentation of audio and subtitle tracks better
  • Improve subtitle rendering. There is a lot of changes here. see bc0cf58e and 76142920
  • PS3: Display all reasonable entries found in system VFS root as services on their own
  • PS3: If display operates in non-square pixel 16:9 mode, scale UI accordingly
  • Use libav.org's recently released 0.7 version (with a couple of bug fixes on top)

So can we actually play mkv files with this? And if so what format must the hdd be so that the ps3 can see it? Sorry for all these noob questions but I have been out of the scene for too long... Thanks in advance!

Anyone tested the Spotify functionality yet? Frankly - I'd like to see a "standalone" version of fully featured Spotify client / player (minus advertisement indeed) as well ...

So the PKG doesn't work with Waninkoko V2? What a bummer, I was gonna give this a try this time round as well.

Please will someone make it work with Waninkoko, I would myself but I'm clueless as to how it's done!
