Coherence 0.5.2 - the "little leap"
on this 29th of February 2008.
On the other hand there are some enhancements that are of general interest too:
- rework of the XBox 360 support
- refinements and improvements on the client side API, incorporating things we learned on extending the Rhythmbox UPnP plugin
- some efforts on smoothing the "just use it as a MediaServer/-Renderer" user experience
- rearrangements in the way multiple res elements are ordered, fixes issues which we had with some UPnP stacks and their 'wayward' interpretation of the specs
- and the usual bugfixes and improvements
More details at the Coherence site
The best showcase for what can be done with Coherence is at the moment for sure the Rhythmbox UPnP plugin.
It enables Rhythmbox
- to act as an UPnP MediaServer, serving its media files to other UPnP clients
- be an UPnP client itself
- and handing over control to an UPnP ControlPoint, announcing itself as an UPnP MediaRenderer
A demonstration can be viewed in a little video over here.
