I have not tried any of the 6.0 builds. I have been very happy with the
stability that 5.4 brings me.

(Someone even wrote about the difference between stability vs. speed of
the 5.x tree and 6.x tree)

I look forward to the SQL backend. Right now, searching my library from
my Squeezebox is not possible.

Can I have both 6.0 and 5.4 on my box at the same time? If not, if I try
a 6.0 build, can I go back to 5.4 if I want?

Bill - have you tried the 6.0 builds? Searching should be much improved.

They're techno trousers, ex-NASA, fantastic for walkies!
