Release 0.7.11: Fixes and Improved User Experience

Lots of good stuff fixed in this release, and we’re happy to bring it to you. You can download this release here.

  • FIX: Crashes in Plex Media Server with Safari Adblocker and other similar plug-ins.
  • FIX: Pulled a fix from XBMC for variable framerate FLV files (important for a new plug-in).
  • FIX: Crashes in Apple Movie Trailers with 5.1 audio (integrated Ryan’s excellent audio fixes).
  • FIX: Some of the menu shortcuts were broken (thanks to migueld for pointing this out).
  • FIX: Some other crashes in Plex Media Server with badly behaved or misconfigured sites.
  • FIX: Much improved Swedish translation, with many thanks to atrus.
  • FIX: Updated to the latest Amazon scrapers (thanks to John Lockwood).
  • NEW: Support for executing Javascript inside plug-in site configurations (as an action).

And some really nice new stuff. James and Isaac worked hard on usability for this release. First of all, we’ve made it easier for you to get to the App Store:


They also renamed some of the top level menu items, and added favorites, since with the ever-growing amount of content, favorites can be very helpful (use the context menu to add items to your favorites):


And finally, you know how most applications have this thing called “Help” where you can go to seek assistance inside the actual program? Novel concept, right? Well, James whipped up a plug-in, Isaac populated it, and now you can browse helpful screencasts without leaving Plex:

Right now we’ve added the three plug-in screencasts, and Alexis’ excellent setup overview. We’ll be adding more in the very near future, and if you have suggestions for content you’d like to see, please let us know. Also, if you have any interest in making some helpful screencasts, please let us know. (I have to say, watching a screencast of Plex *inside of Plex* is quite an unusual experience.)

One minor note: we really want to express our gratitude to all the websites we support. They have really been helpful, as the changes they make to their sites have ended up assisting us greatly in finding and fixing bugs in our code, as well as enhancing the flexibility of the plug-in code and site configuration files. Hulu works again in this new release, I’m happy to say.
Here’s Barkley, artfully dangling some sandy drool.
