SqueezeCenter 7.0 is out!

Finally! I have been running SlimServer 6.5.4 for a long time and it was time for an upgrade but SqueezeCenter, the promised replacement for SlimServer, just never seemed to materalise. Sure, the development branch has been available for some time but for once I wanted to hold on until the real thing was out.

SqueezeCenter 7.0

And now it is here. Logitech released SqueezeCenter 7.0 yesterday. The upgrade from my previous installation of SlimServer 6.5.4 on Ubuntu 7.10 was very straightforward. I just did:

# apt-get update
# apt-get remove ––purge slimserver
# apt-get install squeezecenter

The effort is well worth it. I have just barely started using the new interface but it is much slicker and also feels a lot more responsive.
