An updated browser, improved playback, and an easier to use open-source version are on the way.
Those using Boxee software on your HTPC, have had to sit by while Boxee Box users get update after update. The Box got a new interface, more viewing options and plenty more while the strictly software option sat idle.
"At a certain point," writes Avner Ronen, "we had to focus everyone on the Boxee Box to make sure we hit deadlines." The founder and CEO of Boxee continues, " All of it came at the expense of the downloadable version. The gap between the CE and computer version grew bigger."
He says that the company is working hard to keep the downloadable version as up to date as they can and the fall update will bring things up to snuff.
"That said," adds Ronen, "updates for the downloadable version will most likely lag behind the versions of Boxee for devices."
