    LMS which version to use? 7.7.x7.8.x 7.9.x

    As 7.9.0 has been released as a stable release, the 7.8.x branch has
    been obsoleted. If you still feel like sticking with 7.8, then there's
    the last build still available:

    I've been using 7.9 for around 3 years and have never had a problem with any of the 10 nightlies I have used.

    I am mostly interested in classical music and two of the things that I value most (and which make 7.9 a must have) are:

    Composer browse (one of my main go-to options - set up in the Additional Browse Modes)
    Random Albums (I use this a lot)

    (I am assuming these options aren't in 7.8.x)

    Of course different users have different interests and different requirements.
    Touch, Meridian G92, Bryston B4 SST2, PMC OB1i speakers, HP Proliant Microserver/Ubuntu, PC/Windows 7, iPad 4, iPeng, Squeezepad.

    I am using 7.8.1 because of older plugins

    I have downgraded to 7.8.1 because some older plugins I like the most do not work with 7.9. Like DynamicMix .

    For the classic stuff, I use custom Browse like this:

    Setup browse menu for classical music

    Controllers Hardware: 1XTouch,2XRadio,1XBoom,1XSB3,piCorePlayer
    Controllers Software: squeezelite, Squeeze Player
    Steuerung: Squeeze Comander
