Great ! I'm already looking forward to it !!! :))

And on that thought - speaking of plug-ins, that is - what ever happened to Tapani's WMA plug-in ?? Digging into the discuss archives lead me to expect official WMA support sooner rather than later.


Is this still a possible feature of future Slimserver releases ?

This is a good idea, but there's no facility for it now.

Maybe somebody could put together a plugin for it?
