Hi all -

I just checked in the ExBrowse3 skin, yet another rewrite of ExBrowse2. The code is completely new, based on a POST-based RPC system rather than plain XML and GET requests. It should be faster and much more reliable; EB2 was plagued by caching issues and such. There are also some new features:

- Internet Radio
- Plugins support (check out the Favorites plugin interface ;))
- Home section wraps nicely on 800x600 displays
- MusicMagic!

It's still a work in progress (I'm aware of the Livesearch issue), but I'm hoping to have this replace ExBrowse2 in the 6.2 release. It should work on any browser ExBrowse2 worked with (IE6, Firefox, Safari 1.3+).

Let me know what you find...

- Jacob

Cool!

Alas, I have a bug report:

Not an ARRAY reference at /usr/local/slimserver//Plugins/RPC.pm line 28.

I triggered this by clicking play on an album under browse albums.

May I try ExBrowse3? If so, how do get it?

One thing I really like about ExBrowse2 is the refresh dosen't Click & Flash like the other skins I've tried. Think I've seen a performance issue with ExBrowse2 that I didn't notice with other skins so would like to try 3. I realize it's beta.
