    Small 5.3.0 Issues

    (1) After a few seconds on Now Playing one of my Squeezeboxes insists on
    auto-dimming.
    (2) My iTunes playlists say Empty Folder, although when I press Play they
    still work, so they're not 'missing'. However, is this the same issue as
    the 'Missing Playlist' that kdf says 'slipped through' 5.3.0?

    check the player settings for brightness. there is an option for auto-dim, also
    the screensaver timing.

    most likely. the patch is in now, so the nightlies should clear it up.

    Just an observation: Isn't this just this sort of thing that
    was discussed several weeks ago? I.E. perhaps it's not a
    good idea to get a large portion of the user base on
    various nightlies for different bug fixes. IMHO slimdevices
    should back port any of these fixes into 5.3.x releases at
    a reasonable frequency dictated by the number and severity of
    the bugs. In the mean time the nightlies can keep on trucking
    towards 5.4 with new features and bug fixes. In other words
    the advice for most bug fixes should not generally be "grab
    the latest nightly" but rather "wait a few days/weeks and
    then install 5.3.1".

    If I recall, a few days ago Dean said he would work on creating
    a "stable" and "unstable" branch that should help here. Let's be
    patient, it may take a while to get things sorted out.
