Additionally, they’ve performed a lot of tweaks and minor improvements on the interface, which are also reflected in the legacy iOS 6 UI ( yes, it’s still fully supported ):

  • Improved feedback for media download progress including data bitrate, procentual progress and estimated remaining download time
  • Opening network streams no longer leads to a collapsed file system hierarchy on the remote system. After playback, you can continue where you left off.

  • Added option to disable file name display optimizations (#10050)
  • TV Shows are sorted by Season number / Episode number and Music Albums respectively by track number
