I've just pushed a new post to my blog about the current state of Squeemote and in particular, device synching.


Thanks for your patience waiting for the new release.

Good news: I've made a lot of progress on Squeemote this week and am hopeful that I can submit a new release to Apple this weekend. Here's the preliminary changelog:

* Added support for device synching
* Devices can now be powered on/off
* New quick device switching interface from Now Playing screen
* Added browse by genre
* Tab order can be rearranged (order will be saved when Squeemote is closed)
* Improved data caching mechanism. Data is now initially cached on first load, and future cache updates are automatically downloaded in the background if a server rescan has taken place since the cache was last updated. Manual resyncs are no longer necessary
* Cache the artists list for improved performance
* Improved support for servers with authentication enabled when auto-detecting server, with a simple authentication dialog (no manual settings required other than username/password)
* Fixed bug where Squeemote would stop receiving updates after being locked for a period of time
