    Logitech Media Server 7.9 is out!

    Almost exactly three years after the last release 7.8.0 I'm happy to say that 7.9.0 is ready to go. It's been a long time in the works. But it's been worth the wait. LMS 7.9.0 comes with lots of improvements, both under the hood as well as right there in your preferred user interface:

    More flexible access to your beloved music collection:
    • Customizable browse modes
    • Direct access to other source (LMS or UPnP)
    • Playback of local tunes without adding them to the library
    • Filtered views


    User interface improvements:
    • * Fast live search in the web UI
      * Full text search: type the track name, find the album(s) it's on etc.
      * Play music which is not on your LMS system by dragging the music files to the web UI


    Scanner improvements
    • Allow browsing your music folder while the scanner is running
    • Don't stop the music when running a full wipe & rescan
    • Increased scanning speed, in particular with larger collections


    Miscellaneous improvements
    • "Don't Stop The Music": automatically continue the music listening when your playlist comes to an end
    • Improved support for streaming from https resources
    • Improved overall performances
    • Tons of bug fixes


    Please get the full list of improvements in the changelog.

    You'll find the installers for various platforms in http://downloads.slimdevices.com/Log...Server_v7.9.0/.

    Be prepared for a full wipe & rescan being triggered right after the installation if you're coming from a version 7.8 or older. 7.9.0 introduces a few changes which unfortunately require this step.

    Please note that LMS 7.9.0 is not officially supported by Logitech. If you encounter any problem, then please come to this forum, and the community will help you out.

    Have fun!

    Thanks, Michael, this will help so much with telling people what to use.
    And hopefully the NAS people will start to use it, too, instead of old 7.9 nightlies

    Do I need to install anything else?

    Well I did a symlink in /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Slim/ Slim
    Now it's working but I would like to prevent this in future upgrades. Any suggestions on how to do it?
