If I have an URL of an MP3 radio stream (let's say a Norwegian radio
station) will it play back directly on SB2 without the need for slimserver?
I.e. act as a standalone internet radio receiver?

Yes! SqueezeNetwork!

We're launching SqueezeNetwork along with Squeezebox2 to provide a
SlimServer-in-the-sky and provide internet radio, alarm clock, RSS
feeds, etc. while your home computer is turned off. You don't even
need SlimServer installed at all. Just plug in, set up your networking
and tune in. Access to Live365, Shoutcast, Radioio, the Internet
Archive and more will be available for browsing.

You'll also be able to add favorite stations, adjust your settings, etc
by logging into the SqueezeNetwork web site. Down the road we hope to
make the SqueezeNetwork the focal point of the community, it's where
our forums, plug-ins, downloads, and wiki will live. We also plan on
adding additional features to allow playlist sharing, music purchasing
and let the community help build a great by adding features, etc.

There's a bit more information available on our web site:

<http://www.slimdevices.com/pi_overview.html> and
<http://www.slimdevices.com/au_press_squeezenetwork.html>

SqueezeNetwork will open up as a beta service when Squeezebox2 ships.

Thanks,

dean

So in a nutshell, technically it's a multiuser slimserver hosted at
slimdevices location?
