Media Browser 2.5.2 (Apollo) Released

Media Browser

Version 2.5.2 of Media Browser, codenamed Apollo, has been released. In addition to the usual raft of performance improvements, there are a number of big changes to version 2.5.2 that every Media Browser user should be aware of. First up, this version Media Browser requires Windows 7. Windows Vista is no longer supported. Also, Media Browser is getting its own metadata xml file called movie.xml. According to the release notes, Apollo is still backward compatible with mymovies.xml, but the developers are recommending that users make the change as quickly as possible and have several links to information to assist in making the transition. Finally, the other big addition is that Media Browser is now able to recognize 3D movies so long as they follow proper naming conventions. I know what I will be playing with tonight. Personally, I am looking forward to seeing the improvements to the default theme in action.

Version 2.5.2 (Apollo) is now available for download. This version started out as a quick maintenance release but evolved into a new version that should provide significant performance and feature improvements in several areas.

Please see the changelog for a complete description of the changes and new features.
