Yes! We have just released Miro 2.5, a major update with new features, faster performance, audio podcasts, and lots of polish. Please help us spread the word, tweet about Miro 2.5.

Download Miro 2.5

Here are the biggest changes:

• Miro 2.5 launches 2 – 4 times faster (especially for users with lots of videos and feeds)

• New audio podcast section of the Miro Guide

• Better interface for audio playback

• Button to download from YouTube when you add as sidebar site – also see: 4 ways to download files (including torrents) from websites inside Miro

• Smarter handling of bittorrent files, especially videos

• New Library interface with ‘Video’, ‘Audio’, and ‘Other’ sections

• New keyboard shortcuts for virtually all functions (great for programming a remote control)

• Interface polish and refinement

• Easier hacking: the database layer was rewritten to use a simplified SQLite schema and we’ve created a new developer documentation site: Miro Developer Documentation v2.5 (more deets)

• Lots of bug fixes and tweaks

For a more complete list of what’s new and different, see the Miro 2.5 Release Notes.

Important Note: The refactored database sometimes takes a looong time (up to 12 minutes) to process on the first restart after the 2.5 upgrade. It’s especially noticeable if you have a large database, but will only happen once.

    Miro 2.5 hit Mandriva (Backports) repo a few days ago and it works real good: Not only does it starts way faster, but 4 podcasts I downloaded this morning went real fast, and audio podcasts interface's really easier.
    So fat, so good :D
