    Logitech Media Server 8.0.0 released!

    I'm seriously excited to announce the availability of Logitech Media Server 8.0.0 as the new stable release. The new version might not look too different from 7.x at first. But the integration of online music services into your music library marks a big step up in functionality - which deserves a new major version number.

    Logitech Media Server 8 adds a lot of improvements for users of online music. But there's more:

    • Import your online music library to your music library. No matter whether your favorite album or artist is stored on your disk, or on some music service - it shows up right where you expect "your music" to be.
    • https is the new http: most web sites nowadays are delivered over the secure https protocol. And so are more and more online music streams. Logitech Media Server 8 allows you to continue to listen to your favorite stations, as well as music services like TIDAL.
    • Allow to paste TIDAL and Deezer web links to the Tune In field (or use the corresponding CLI command) to play those items.
    • Plugins now can use SOCKS to access online sources.
    • Helper applications (faad, flac) have been updated, as well as some of the Perl libraries, like Audio::Scan (not all supported platforms).
    • Docker is everywhere. A Logitech Media Server image is now available on Docker Hub.
    • Updated translations for Swedish and Dutch.


    The more complete Changelog can be found here.

    Installers can be found on http://downloads.slimdevices.com/Log...Server_v8.0.0/

    I believe that this release has more community contributed improvements than we had in many previous versions. I'm therefore very happy to thank community members Philippe_44, ralphy, bpa, blackfiction, Johan, jcbodnar, keynet, sciurius, oleg-kuh, snoopy86, michaeldie, terual, pascalberger, and whomever I might have missed very much for all their contributions. Logitech Media Server wouldn't be as great as it is without your help! Thanks a lot!

    Oh, and if you like to control your Squeezebox from your computer or mobile device: don't forget to install the Material skin. I usually don't recommend must-have plugins. But Craig really is taking the web UI to the level I wanted to reach with Logitech Media Server a long time ago!

    Free the music!

    Great news

    Amazing to think that after all these years since it first appeared, LMS is
    better and more capable than ever!

    Thanks to Michael and all of the 'techies' here that have contributed to
    LMS's evolution - and helped us out with our day-to-day queries! ­čĹŹ­čĹŹ

    I'd like to echo the plug for Material Skin. Craig (cpd73) is indeed doing a fantastic job.

    Wow, perfect timing. Just yesterday I was looking to see if it was time to jump to 8.0, but got busy with some other Big Sur / development issues, so figured I'd tackle the question today. And here this morning along side my ritual cup(s) of coffee is this outstanding announcement awaiting my eyes to meet my Inbox.

    Already loving the new streaming integration.

    A huge Thank You to everyone involved.
