The Heat Is On

The major news this time around is the updated web orbiter. The first time you go into it, it looks the same, but hitting any button you will notice the differences right away. The new web orbiter is MUCH faster, and it has a much needed activity indicator. Thank you to Radu (Uplink) from Cascade/Dianemo. Another prime example where we as the open source part of LinuxMCE benefit from the commercial side of LinuxMCE.
los93sol hasn't stopped his work on the telecom part either. He is diligently extinguishing bug after bug, one illogical thing after another, in the telecom part of LinuxMCE.
TSCHAK has fixed some very dangerous bug, which allowed arbitrary deletion of files, and committed fixes for the Hulu player, as well as added the nbd packages back in for playback support of physical DVD in a different computer (this upgrade only gets downloaded if you do a dist-upgrade)
Xine has received subtitle support, MythTV fixes for working better on the MD, the video list should be quite a bit faster and display episode titles as well for MythTV users.
As always, enjoy, and please report back any problems you may have.
