    It will be done when it's done. We are doing work on 0.8 on almost a daily basis. We are just trying to iron out the kinks and get things as usable as possible. When we have something we think is acceptable for beta testing we will do a public release.

    pgjensen - FYI:
    I thought I'd better provide you some assistance...

    Hi, i am allso extremely eager for this release and am checking the forums daily. Cant wait for genre categories.

    Just wondering is there some way to get notified by email of the .8 release? by sub scribing to a forum or something similar?

    Allso quick question is there going to be the ability to rename/restructure moive files based on the MP database? I remember reading about this some where.

    Thanks alot!

    This is planned for a future release but not 0.8. Currently it is scheduled for 1.1 but we have heard a few people asking for this lately so it's likely it will get pulled forward. Anyway, if you star the issue on our Google Code page, you will receive email updates as progress is made and/or when the issue gets rescheduled.

    Since 0.8 is shaping up to be a major release, would you recommend a clean install vs upgrading? I'm asking because I have to rebuild my htpc and if you believe a clean install and rebuilding the db would be better, I'm willing to wait.

    There will be no reason to do a clean install. You should be able to upgrade fine.
