It incorporates elements from recent test releases and is now relatively bug-free compared to early antecedents. Those elements include Hulu and Pandora integration, as well as other App Box releases."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1239241332.usr105634.jpg" /></em></p><p>In the ongoing battle, this update fixes the <a href="http://www.hulu.com/" target="_blank">Hulu</a> problem, at least until it is broken again. They are using the new XULRunner browser to get around Hulu's playback limitation. This will also enable <a href="http://www.boxee.tv/" target="_blank">Boxee</a> to play any video you can find by adding URLs with video RSS feeds as the source. This also supports Pandora, PBS and RadioTime. There has also been a public release of the official <a href="http://blog.boxee.tv/2009/04/06/introducing-the-boxee-api/" target="_blank">API</a> so that anyone can develop plug-ins for the software. I need to get on the stick and hack my AppleTV.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
