VortexBox 0.8 has been released. It includes many of the most requested features from this user forum. We now get cover art from both Google images and Amazon so VortexBox should be able to find a good image for almost any CD. Realtime ripping status from the Web GUI was another highly requested feature. The ability to change timezone was also requested by many users who move their VortexBox between time zones regularly.

Features in VortexBox 0.8

* real time AJAX CD ripper status
* time zone configuration from web GUI
* more accurate cover art
* Logitech SqueezeCenter 7.3.3 pre installed and configured

Is this available as a Yum Update for current Vortexbox users?

more accurate cover art? how's that?

set the time zone? OUTRAGEOUS!!

doesn't a release less than one mean something?

If you are using 0.7 you can do a yum update to get 0.8 otherwise you need to follow the upgrade procedure.

VortexBox still needs a few more features and testing to be ready for 1.0 but we are almost there.

A brilliant mesh of two ideas would be for Vortex Box to run on the Sheevaplug/Pogoplug. I can imagine you selling a lot of those (of course you would have to add an external optical drive), but it could still be done cheaply :-)
