I am very pleased to announce Miro 1.1: download it now.
There are two major improvements in this update.
First, we have dramatically improved performance for torrent downloading and we offer more settings and control (thanks to libtorrent). With this update, Miro is truly a powerhouse for torrent feeds, if I do say so myself. Torrents are still a difficult and mysterious technology for many users, despite the huge bandwidth savings they provide to publishers. We aim to make your torrent experience seamless at worst and invisible at best.
For example, Democracy Now! is a radio and television show that is very popular but only available in certain markets. With Miro, anyone with an internet connection can subscribe to an HD video torrent feed of the show with a single click and have the latest episode ready to watch each day. You simply cannot beat Miro for BitTorrent feeds.
The second new feature is a combined search that lets you get results from all 5 search engines at once. You can still choose a specific site to search if you prefer but this will give you broader results.
Other notable news:
a. We’re hiring! We have openings for a Fundraising Director and programmers.
b. We are about to launch our first round of Co-Branded Miro Players, with several well-known internet and media brands. If you are interested in a Co-Branded Player that comes with your company’s content and branding, see this page and be in touch.
