New features in this version since Boxee Beta 0.9.20 point release
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Boxee Beta 0.9.21

- File Identification Progress

Easily see how many files Boxee is scanning, has identified, and doesn't
recognize within your media shares. Check the status from any menu sidebar
(TV shows, Movies, Music) or from the Media menu (Settings -> Media).

- Manual Movie & TV Show identification

Help Boxee identify your personal media by telling it what's in your collection. To change
incorrectly labeled media select the movie or TV show, then click the eject icon on the right of
the pop-up menu. Find and identify unresolved files by going to the "Files" menu, and selecting
the "unresolved" folder at the bottom of the list. Select files and follow the instructions above
to label them properly. You'll now be able to put in movie names, and TV show seasons and episodes
to ensure your collection is pristine.

- Facebook & Twitter in your Boxee feed

In addition to pushing out your recommendations to social networks, you can now also pull in
recommendations from your friends on Facebook & Twitter. Shared videos appear automatically in
your feed with an icon on the right to let you know where they came from. Set up this new option
in your service settings for Facebook & Twitter.

- New & Improved RSS Management

We've created a brand new way to manage, discover and play RSS feeds in Boxee. First, check out
the new management & discovery console on our website. Search, arrange by category or sort through
the most popular, top rated, new, and HD feeds available on Boxee. Then use the RSS feeds app to
play back your favorites.
