Nieuwe firmware Boxee Box (

Boxee heeft een nieuwe firmware voor de Boxee Box uitgebracht. Er zijn opvallend veel bugfixes met betrekking tot SMB terug te vinden.

Daarnaast een hoop kleine wijzigingen. Wat mij zelf nogal opvalt is het laatste punt in het changelog: Airplay support voor iOS 5 devices. Er wordt helaas geen verdere info verstrekt, maar als dit betekent dat er nu video en muziek dmv. Airplay gestreamd kan worden vanaf je iOS device, dan heeft Boxee een leuke nieuwe feature toegevoegd. Ik zal het vanavond eens testen op mijn eigen Boxee Box en het resultaat hieronder in de comments terugkoppelen.

Download de nieuwe firmware hier of gebruik de update functie van de Boxee Box zelf.
