Version 2.5.1 is released

Post by SubJunk »


You can download it from the front page.

This release makes libraries and files load faster, improves subtitle support, adds 2 new renderers and more!
Note: This release requires Java 7 to be installed. It will not run on Java 6.

Changes since 2.5.0:
  • General:
    • Improved subtitle support on non-PS3 renderers
    • Made library/file loading faster
    • Fixed 24-bit flac support with tsMuxeR
    • Stopped using 2 database locations for media caching on Windows
    • Allow library scanning to be stopped
    • Library scanning interface improvements
  • Renderers:
    • Added support for Sony Home Theatre systems
    • Added support for Onkyo TX-NR717
    • Improved Samsung AllShare compatibility

Upgrade Notes:

For versions prior to 1.5.0:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. For Windows users you can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

For all versions:
It is recommended (but usually not necessary) to uninstall the older version before installing the new one.
