Release 0.7.9: A few goodies

| 24 Feb 2009 | by 10 Comments

We’re really happy to see that people seem to be enjoying the store. We’ve had tens of thousands of plug-ins downloaded already, and we have a bunch of new ones in the works! In the meantime, we’ve cooked up another quick release to try to fix the most egregious issues with the last one.

  • FIX: Fixed permissions on the Plex binary to allow non-administrative users to run.
  • FIX: Tweaks to the skin for upcoming Plug-ins.
  • FIX: Some crashes and leaks in the Media Server.
  • FIX: Fixed the scrapers/NFO issue, this time for real (many thanks to Isaac for all the hard work on this one!). We also include the TMDB scraper again.
  • FIX: A regression where only the first iPhoto album showed up.
  • FIX: Improved compatibility with Flash sites for the Media Server.

The release can be downloaded here or via Sparkle as usual.

Here’s another photo of Barkley playing on a beach in San Francisco.

    Rad! Do you (and Barkley) live in SF? We should buy you a beer or dogbone or something.

    Where are the plug-ins hosted? Do you need the user mirrors to do anything to help with plug-ins? Let us know…

    @grey: That photo was taken about 2 years ago, before we moved out to Hawaii, so unfortunately I won’t be able to take you up on your kind offer.

    @Roopesh: The plug-ins are all hosted on our server, kindly provided by Liquid Gravity. We’ll definitely let you know if we need a mirror.

    I’m sure it’s mentioned in the forums, but I shouldn’t even be *here* during work much less scouring there — any update on Netflix support?

    And Hawaii? Ok, now I’m jealous. ;)

    Says it was last modified Monday, July 28, 2008 3:05 AM. WTF?

    0.7.9, on auto update library, is rescanning all of my .cd1/.cd2 films into multiple library entries. It is keeping the existing entry, and adding 2 more for each part.

    I rediscovered PLEX after I bought myself a big ass Samsung System 6 LCD TV. The integration with OSX is amazing. Still trying to figure out the section TV shows and Movies. My donation will follow shortly.

    BTW I keep downloading 0.7.14, instead 0.7.9.
