Special thanks to all of you who helped us with testing and adding PS4 support, including ExSport, AlGrenadine, mileleku, Phonism, mine260309, NZ_InFerno, carbontoast, tangestani, and many others.

    • Added ThumbnailWidth and ThumbnailHeight renderer settings
    • Added support for file extensions: AC3, AMR and TTA (thanks, ler0y!)
    • Fixed custom device configuration loading
    • Added more logging
    • Fixed folders not showing if they were previously empty, with "hide empty folders" enabled (thanks, jensaarai!)
    • Cleaned up the titles in the transcode folder in some cases
    • Various minor improvements/fixes
    • Expanded code testing for improved stability
  • Renderers:
    • Added support for Sony PlayStation 4
    • Improved thumbnail display on Panasonic TVs

Thanks for all your hard work! :D

I'll test on PS4 tonight, yay!!

First thing to note, the window bar says: Universal Media Server 5.2.0-SNAPSHOT - FOR TESTING ONLY, POSSIBLY UNSTABLE

I downloaded OSX Java8 version.

Kefran, there was an issue at my end with the Java 7/8 releases. There should be no issues with the version your running but i've re-uploaded the Java7/8 and they will have the correct version number without the testing bits at the top.

Java 6 version was unaffected by the build error on my end, and my deepest apologies for my stuff up.

Thanks Optimus. I thought it might have been an oversight, the new version seems to be working fine.
