    Please, remove XP from the list of supported OS for 1.4.0. Nothing similar to support unfortunately.
    Honestly I think The will be a month or two till final build and maybe Team can make MP 1.4.0 usable with XP.
    Unfortunately, 1.3.0 is the last MP version for me.

    @Edalex : update your Os ;)
    XP support was re-added at the last minute, because nothing was clear, about support of it (in the Team and Users) !!!
    in fact, we have choosed to drop XP now for MP1.5 developpement, we have no more limitation with DirectX/.NET/ ... the better is in the future ....

    ? if you are talking about your experience with the pre-release: Yes XP was broken in the pre-release. The team put in a lot of effort to get XP on par with 1.3 at the last minute so we have some time to announce & explain the end of XP support. XP can not be maintained for the team. The reasons (my personal experience):
    1. No Dev runs XP as a real machine (some do have VMware, but that is not the same).
    2. Almost no Testers run XP as a real machine
    3. No Community Testers from XP. The built that broke XP support was available in Area51 for a long time - nobody reported XP as being broken.
    4. It holds back the development a lot.

    To add to that @Edalex, have you actually tested 1.4.0 ? It was tested on XP and working fine.

    Not true. :)

    This is not true, but the other points are true. :)

    @Edalex
    Are you having problems with a specific feature?

    I want to thank the whole team for this new update and it's steadyness! For the whole team, but i especially want to mention Owlsroost and Tourettes for the major things these two developers have done for video quality and smoothness of Mediaportal 1. This needs another donation. Will do!
    Please follow my example! ;)

    Thank you for the praise, but I think that everyone on the team deserves a big pat-on-the-back in getting 1.3.0/1.4.0 to the current level of performance and stability (especially Scythe42, Sebastii and elliottmc, plus people like davidf who work away in the background on things like MPAR and BD player, and not forgetting Gibman and mm135200 for their tremendous work on TV Server)
