    Plex Media Server 0.9.10.0 is now available for Plex Pass members!

    (You didn't think we'd go to 1.0 *that* easily, did you?)

    A few things to note in this release: first of all, it includes a much improved transcoder, which you may have been following in the preview thread. Just about everything about this transcoder should be improved over the existing one, but obviously, if you find some media which worked better with the older transcoder, we want to know about it before this release goes out to the public. To report an issue, read the preview thread and post details about the media.

    We've also dropped support for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 with this release, which allowed us to clean up and modernize some things. That, along with dropping support for legacy Flash and Silverlight channels makes the server start up faster, use less memory, and perform better (not to mention be a smaller download package). For anyone keeping score, we supported Windows XP five months longer than Microsoft did.

    NEW:

    • Improved reliability in media analysis and transcoding.
    • Improved quality in video transcoding.
    • Improved speed in video transcoding, especially when starting new sessions and when seeking.
    • Support for transcoding a number of new formats, including H.265/HEVC.
    • Much-improved support for styled Advanced SubStation subtitles (primarily used in anime).
    • Improved support for SRT subtitles, especially those including bidirectional text and Unicode characters.
    • Support for 64-bit UnRAID systems.
    • Support for PPC Thecus systems.
    • An improved default subtitle font, now used across all platforms.
    • Support for HTTPS channel content.
    • Removed support for legacy Flash and Silverlight channels.
    • Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are no longer supported.
    • The legacy transcoder, which is available as an option in some Plex clients, will be removed soon. Please be sure to report specific cases where you still see better results when using it.
    FIXES:
    • Ratings no longer display floating point weirdness (e.g. "7.499999").
    • Handle file I/O failures gracefully when streaming media.
    • Fix and speed up for Recently Viewed Shows.
    • Fix a rare case in which play queues could repeat items.
    • Playlists with TV shows might not have a duration or item count.
    • Shutdown the database cleanly on exit, so we don't have -wal/shm files left around.
    • Run library analysis in the background so request isn't long-running.
    • Issues with menu icon on Yosemite.
    • Fix jaggies with Windows icon.

    • Videos with colorspaces other than YUV420p might have playback issues.
    • Hopefully fixed compatibility with OS X Snow Leopard.

    NEW:

    • (Windows) Fix the icon.

    (Note QNAP ARM download is currently offering a older version, we are looking into it)
