a new bug fixing version is available for download

general — avner ronen on November 16, 2008 @ 10:47 am

we just released a minor update to the alpha for Mac and Apple TV. version 4166.
if you’re already a boxee alpha tester you can get it here (if you’re on Apple TV update Launcher and then update Boxee).

it fixes some nasty SMB crashes (when connecting boxee to another computer or storage device on the network). we also made some small fixes to the streaming of Hulu.

we’re going to release another version with even more bug fixes, as well as some new stuff on the first week of December. we’re just too itchy to release stuff out as soon as we have it working..

  4. Sweet. I recently installed Boxee on the Apple TV and am now realizing how “deep” a program it is. Keep the updates coming!

  13. @avner Its on majors corner hence it being a major. and sits on top of a public toilet hence it swotting flys. It was just a council commission to brighten up a slightly dull part of town.

  16. Boxee has changed the way my family watches tv! Great work and much appreciated!

    I look forward to trying the new updates, as Hulu playback has a stuttering problem on my Apple TV.
