    MediaPortal 2.1 Pre2 Release!

    Since we released MediaPortal 2.1 Pre we have been focusing on fixing bugs and issues that were reported by the community. While we were able to develop solutions for most of them, a few things remain that require more work to get fixed. For this reason we decided to publish a second Pre release to allow everybody to take advantage of the work that has been done so far.

    This new version is a stable product that qualifies for productive use, pending the open issues, which are referenced in our Jira and Bug reports section. See the Pre2 release news for some pictures, further details about what changed and remaining issues as well as the download.

    Please do not use this thread for bug and issue feedback but post on the bug section instead as described in the release news.

    It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)
