What is the status of the DBI discussion? Or is that a question for the
developers list?

once again, this brings us back to the DBI discussions. Once we do get a
DBI
written in, thigns liks smart playlists, sort by year, browse new music, etc
all become relatively trivial in comparision to trying that now. It is
unlikely
that the effort tomake the features available until after the huge task of
choosing and implementing a nice, cross-platform, easily available DBI comes
about.

in response to another recent post, ALL feature requests are worth psoting
at
bugs.slimdevices.com. They may not be immediately feasible, but posting
them
there makes sure it will be looked at again.
