    The helpful and popular plugin "AppLauncher" to assign and launch external applications from within MP2 was integrated. It'll be part of the MP2.3 installer after release. A small preview of the Menu Entry and Home Content:

    • Scrollable Details in InfoScreens (focussed / unfocussed)
    Unfocused.jpg focused.jpg
    • FanArtVisibility setting (0.8 - 1.1, default is 1.0). Higher values = less visibility.

    MP2.4 will contain some visual improvements in the media share configuration screens.
    • All content lists have an indicator showing the number of total shares and currently focused item (as known from media screens). This may help in case of longer lists
    • Margin alignments to make all screens look similar and white line below headlines
    • Share lists have a grid with black frame and better hightlights for focused items (ligther background and bold font)
