    Is there an easy way...

    To find out what fixes and features have been added to a nightly build and expecially if there is a firmware upgrade - Id be tempted to try 6.5 on my "backup" slimserver (i use 6.2.1 otherwise) but im afraid of it doing a firmware upgrade and then having to do a firmware "backgrade" to get my current version working properly again.

    some options:
    http://cia.navi.cx/stats/project/SlimServer
    http://lists.slimdevices.com/lists/listinfo/checkins
    http://lists.slimdevices.com/archives/checkins/

    or if you keep up with nightlies using svn:
    svn log

    -kdf

    firmware is included in the software, so any changes to firmware show
    up in those.

    Gandt,

    If you are worried about accidentally upgrading your firmware, you can check
    this directory to see when it was last updated on the trunk (main
    development branch):

    http://svn.slimdevices.com/trunk/server/Firmware/

    According to what I see there now, the trunk and 6.2.x branch share the same
    firmware revision.

    BTW, downgrading firmware is supported so even if you accidentally upgraded
    to a newer version you would be able to downgrade to the production release
    if you went back to that version of SlimServer.

    HTH,
    Ben
