Just have to read the changelog that comes with the 6.5 builds.
That is the focus for now.

Most of the rest can be found in bugzilla, marked as future until
there is time to actually decide what is right to do.

settings in the web ui will be getting a makeover

the rest is tbd, or not yet public for one reason or another.

you can find that info on the download page
(http://slimdevices.com/dev_nightly.html)
as always:

* Please download the official 6.3.1 release. Introduces support
for Rhapsody Music Service and Radioio Soundpass. Read the change log
here.
* 6.5b1 - This is the latest alpha pre-release (yes, we really
mean it) development version of SlimServer. It may be unstable at any
given time. Download this version if you are interested in new
features, the latest bug fixes, and don't mind reporting new bugs.
Read the change log here.

6.5 is due for branching soon, and will then have "stable" and "less
stable" versions.

Looks like 6.5 will be the ideal software to use...

"6.5 is due for branching soon, and will then have "stable" and "less

Just wondering when Slimserver gets upgraded does this also affect the Squeezebox Network upgrades or is Squeezebox Network upgrade a different process ? Just wondering if we might see Imnternet Radio & Slim Device Picks upgraded as well ?
I know Andy had mentioned it will be upgraded soon but wasn't sure if it would be upgraded at the same time as SlimServer.

There is an upgrade to SN in order to handle the recently announced
Transporter player, but it is an entirely different process from
SlimServer. SN is closed source, so only Slim Devices is involved in
those changes.

there is likely always more radio on the way.

"there is likely always more radio on the way."


This is good as because Slim Devices Picks needs some radio streams fixed...It will be great if other major Cities can be added at Internet Radio...I would like to see Chicago, Florida,
Boston, Connecticut, etc. added.

The new RadioTime plugin should help you find more local radio stations too.

Great...I'm looking forward to the upgrade...

Andy, when will the new RadioTime plugin be available ? Thanks.

There is also the wiki radio plugin which allows you and every other
user to enter and share their own faves from any city you want.

why wait for someone else to do it for you when you can do it yourself:

So, if 6.3.1 is the official release, and I can't get it to run, how do I get support?

Not to forget the neighbours to the north.
Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, etc.

Good news RadioTime which is a radio guide for streaming radio stations. you can read more about them at http://www.radiotime.com

Anyway all you need to do is be using SlimSever 6.5b and create a user name at RadioTime and your ready to search for radio stations using SlimServer. I'm told RadioTime will be in the next upgrade of Squeezebox Network.

I'm fairly sure it'll be September 18, corresponding with the
Transporter shipping.
