Version 1.7 released
We are happy to announce that version 1.7 is now ready. This release was mostly based around better and more streamlined support for languages in video files, either audio tracks or subtitles. Serviio now finally supports delivering transcoded files with multiple audio tracks or gives you the option to prefer a particular audio language.
Another useful feature is the integration with opensubtitles.org, that brings automatically downloaded subtitles for your video files.
You can now also change the style of subtitles, if they are burned-in.
Thanks to everyone who helped with this release.
QNAP officially supported
Version 1.6.1 released
Version 1.6.1 is now available. This is mainly a maintenance release, incl. some bug fixes and adding support for a few additional codecs.
Thanks to everyone who helped test and raised the issues.
Version 1.6 released
We are delighted to announce that version 1.6 is now available to everyone.
This release includes a completely new, web based, console. It's now much easier to configure your server from wherever you are, and it also scales well on all your screen sizes (tablets, phones, etc). You can access the console either by running the executable (as usual), or by opening the console web page (http://localhost:23423/console). As a part of this change we have also removed the system tray icon.
Another biggie is a support for stacked videos (Pro only). Do you have a DVD structure folder and want to see the whole folder as a single library entry? Do you have a multi-part video and want to do the same? No problem.
There is now also support for more subtitles formats (incl. bitmap based subtitles), and a few more smaller new features and bug fixes.
Big thanks to the testers and translators, as usual.
Version 1.5.2 released
Version 1.5 released
We are pleased to announce that version 1.5 is available for download.
This version is mostly focused on making using Serviio easier and less error-prone for the users. Java now comes bundled with the Windows and OSX versions, so you don't need to install it on your system manually and deal with problems when your Java gets updated. Linux users still have to install Java 8 (which is now the minimum requirement). OSX version is now distributed as an installer and starts the server as a service when your Mac boots up - no more Force close when shutting down your Mac. Only 64-bit Macs are supported now.
The library indexing engine has been reworked, so that you get your filesystem changes reflected in the library immediately, without the need of a constant refresh. It should also make the process less CPU intensive. Remote drives are also handled differently without any side effects.
Apart from these, there are many smaller improvements and fixes.
As always, thanks go to the testers, translators and the guys helping at the forum.
