This release improves renderer detection speed, reduces CPU and network load, improves media parsing, and more.

The v9 releases will continue for bugfixes and renderer support updates, and soon we will release the first pre-release for v10 which improves, stabilizes and extends our metadata, allowing for things like recommendations, genres, ratings from major sources, etc.

The fact you still support XP and Vista, what it implies? Would it make it easier and lighter by droping those 2 old and unsecure OS?

That's a fair question Rhialto, but we don't actually test on those systems, we just try not to break them. That's why it says "limited support" :) It is definitely best to use Windows 10.

Subtitles on Philips 42PFL4007H/12

Version 9.4.3 is the last version subtitles are working with. Newer version does not shot the subtitles. Server does recognizes the subtitles in the name of the movie/series, but it is not showing it. I've tried update form version 9.4.3 to new one, I've tried clean instalation. I even copied the folder renderers form version 9.4.3 to the new one - NO SUBTITLES.
