What's new in Boxee

Version 1.5.0:

Version 1.5 of Boxee is currently being tested by Boxee Box Early Access users and will soon be available in Beta. We plan to release 1.5 together with Live TV later in January. Here's some of the new features you can look forward to on the Boxee Box…

  • Home Screen - We've added links to the standard menu to launch the Browser and Live TV (once you've attached the dongle). We also gave the featured section a small facelift.
  • Menu - The Menu is now more accessible, popping up as an overlay that lets you quickly navigate between different sections or search. we also optimized search to minimize the number of clicks.
  • Movies & TV Shows - We updated the layout of Movies and TV Shows for easier navigation by Genre and Source as well as providing quick access to trailers.
  • There is also a new Movie details screen with extended synopsis and cast & crew information. For TV Shows it is now much easier to jump between seasons and see which episodes you already watched.
  • Watch Later & Friends - We expanded the thumbnails in Watch Later & Friends sections and now let you filter between clips, TV Shows and Movies.

Boxee STILL requires you to run Safari in 32-bit mode! For that alone, it deserves a 1-star review. It's now August of 2010, and Boxee has been in development since April 25, 2009 (v. 0.9.11.5774) -- and its devs STILL haven't been able to write it for Apple's contemporary operating system (10.6), which has existed since just a few months after Boxee was first released? That's a pretty sorry record. Perhaps they should start looking for a new career.

Wait... So they are or they aren't doing desktop versions of this anymore? Because the official word was Boxee on the desktop was dead. And yet... Here this is.

My mouse only can travel about 50% across the screen here in version 1.5. I had to revert back to the stable build. :(

Apparently, 1.5 will be the final version of the desktop app. They are concentrating only on their Boxee device from now on.

Here's the full note about this: http://blog.boxee.tv/2011/12/26/boxee-1-5-fall-software-update/ "Growing Past the PC This 1.5 release will be the last version of Boxee for PC/Mac/Ubuntu. It will be available on Boxee.tv through the end of January. We believe the future of TV will be driven by devices such as the Boxee Box, Connected TVs / Blu-Rays and 2nd screen devices such as tablets and phones. While there are still many users who have computers connected to their TVs, we believe this use case is likely to decline as users find better alternatives. People will continue to watch a lot of video on their computer, but it is more likely to be a laptop than a home-theater PC and probably through a browser rather than downloaded software. To our computer users… to those who have come out to our NYC and SF meetups, talked with us at Engadget, GDGT, and Giz Gallery events, or enjoyed Austin BBQ with us during SxSW, or simply messaged with us on Facebook, Twitter, and our forums… thank you for all your support – we would not be where we are today without you. But we can’t stay here. We are excited about the upcoming release of Boxee Live TV and our new product roadmap for 2012. If you are a current Boxee user on a computer we hope that you will enjoy 1.5 and maybe when you are ready to retire that good ol’ HTPC/Mac Mini you will decide to get a Boxee Box. Sincerely, Team Boxee"

The reason I got Boxee was to watch Vudu content. I linked my accounts no problem and see my rentals, however when I go to watch an movie (SD, all I've got so far), the movie plays for less then a minute and then I hear the fan of my mini spin up and it freezes, requiring a force stop. This has happened 3 times, which is every time. I have a brand new mini, 10.7.2, 8gb ram and newest Boxee.

I know this is a late reply, but I was having the same problem, and it's the same on the Windows version of Boxee. They "fixed the glitch" by removing Vudu support for Boxee. Ugh.
