We’re thrilled to announce a new release of Plexamp with a bunch of updates and fixes. The music-loving late-night crew has been hard at work. In case you’re wondering, the main priorities for us right now are:
- Fixing things which are totally broken.
- Giving configurability via config files to at least let people tweak settings (first make the impossible possible, then make the possible easy, right?)
- Having fun! (Hence all the new visualizers)
Autoupdate inside the app, or visit the Plexamp site for direct downloads.
Feast your eyes on some of the new visualizers available in this release!
- Linux support!
