    great work gang ! :D

    I have already installed 1.7.0 on two of my pi's.

    Is there a reason you have now gotten rid of the links for it and said wait for 1.7.1 ?

    They ain't gonna self destruct on me or nothing are they ? :-??

    There where reports of crashes over at the OpenPHT thread and are now working on a 1.7.1 hotfix release (eta in a day or two).

    @treboR2Robert: It should not self destruct but you may experience a crash on the home screen in rare conditions.

    lol it seems ok so far anyway, I'll stick with it for "a day or two" I don't mind the odd crash.

    I can't seem to find a couple of the new features you mentioned tho ;

    Support for showing imdb rating
    and
    FileManager and SystemInfo support (requires skin support)

    The latter I assume I need a different skin to the standard rasplex 1 ?

    And the imdb rating i can't find anywhere.

    Installed 1.7 on a 8gb card tonight using pi filler on a pi2 ... working great

    Using both iphone and ipad tested both 4.4.1 and 4.5 ... remote functioned fine.. played serveral test movies both direct and transcode as well as music.. all looking pretty good

    Still an issue with having stacked movies with diffenent encodes and being able to choose the version to play with trailers enabled .. will write up a bigger review after 1.7.1 since changes as coming...

    Solid work boys.. thanks for showing the Plex guys how its done...

    Lets see how many more months PMP goes broken.....

    And they have a LONG way to catch up with the systems settings gui you have vs having to SSH the box to set it up... rediculous ...!!!

    Oh that's really upsetting. I remember him being a driving force in the early days of rasplex and always extremely helpful. :( Thanks for letting me know, my thoughts are with his family.

    If we already installed 1.7.0 should we do a fresh install for 1.7.1 or will updating be ok ?
    great work btw :D

    EDIT: looks like it isn't available on the update channel yet so a manual install it is.

    In-app soon? ETA on soon? In a couple of hours? Days maybe? Shouldn't this release be pushed immediately if it fixes several annoying bugs?

    No it should not. Every release has the potential of having MORE annoying or even detrimental bugs. So staggering the release to 'manual only' before the release channel creates a safety net, so we don't accidentally blow up everyone who has auto-update enabled.

    If you want to beta test a "pre-release" as soon as it's available, you can image or reinstall like everyone else. The opportunity is there, you just have to actually want to test it. Don't treat it like an approved update until it's in the stable channel.

    However, coincidentally and unrelated to your comment, 1.7.1 was pushed to the pre-release update channel a few hours ago.
