VortexBox 2.1 released today
It's been a while since we had a release. This release is a roll-up of a lot of features and fixes we have been working on since the last release. It's been over 6 months since 2.0 was released so there are a lot of new features and fixes in this version. This release includes Logitech Media Server 7.7.2. Backups now support more than 2.2TB drives. This is great for 3TB+ VortexBoxes. We have the latest Fedora kernel with upgraded audio drives. The new ALSA drives now have better support for USB audio devices. We are now using ALBUMARTIST instead of BAND tag in the FLAC to mp3 mirroring.
We have experimental support for some leading edge features. VortexBox Player now has DSD support. You can play your DSD rips directly. We now support Bluetooth audio devices through VortexBox Player. Blu-Ray ripping is working well but it still not 100%.
We added Plex Media Server to the apps available for installation. For those of you who haven't looked at Plex, it's a great way to view your movies on many different devices.
