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.
Version 1.4 released
We are pleased to announce that version 1.4 has been released.
This includes a major MediaBrowser redesign (Pro edition only). It is now designed with a mobile-first approach making it much more usable on mobiles and tablets, is responsive and supports 'retina' displays. This has been a major undertaking and is just the beginning, there will be more features coming to MediaBrowser in the future.
There are additional new features (although no major ones this time) and bug fixes.
As usual, many thanks to the beta testers and translators.
Have a great Holiday season, everyone.
Version 1.4.1 released
We are pleased to announce that version 1.4.1 has been released.
This is mostly a bugfixing release, with some additional small features added to the mix.
For the MediaBrowser changes to appear, don't forget to clear your browser cache.
As usual, thanks to the testers for the feedback.
