• Better interface for audio playback

• Smarter handling of bittorrent files, especially videos

• New Library interface with ‘Video’, ‘Audio’, and ‘Other’ sections

• New keyboard shortcuts for virtually all functions (great for programming a remote control)

• Interface polish and refinement

• Easier hacking: the database layer was rewritten to use a simplified SQLite schema and we’ve created a new developer documentation site: Miro Developer Documentation v2.5 (more deets)
