ps3: Round timestamps to ms precision before feeding them to the SPU decoder
For some unholy reason the SPU decoder seems to hang when timestamps are not rounded to ms precision. I've no idea why.
PS3: Use jemalloc instead of newlib's malloc
Using jemalloc significantly reduces memory fragmentation and thus mitigates the out of memory conditions that happens now and then when using Showtime (in particular during movie playback)
It's also much more efficient than newlib's malloc thanks to per-thread caching of allocation and per-thread memory arenas
For more information about jemalloc, see http://http://www.canonware.com/jemalloc/
Upgrade Showtime to use libav 0.8.1
This adds better support for multithreaded decoders and a lot of stability fixes.
For more details please see http://www.libav.org/releases/libav-0.8.release
Upgrade Spotify integration to use libspotify 11
Add user setting for configuring the VDPAU deinterlacer (Linux only)

I agree with you - however, it depends on how it is referenced. 'When will we get XBMC?' is pretty annoying, and I'd rather have a native PS3 app just like this. Just keep in mind the standard it set for homebrew multimedia playback and management.
i could convert mkv to avchd but some large files (mostly 1080p) don't want to convert at all and with the new firmware update 720p movies get the image cropped at the top right 1/4th of the screen upon playback.
